On sale in November, the refreshed CX-7 range will adopt the proven 2.5 litre naturally-aspirated and 2.2 litre turbo-diesel engines already used in the award-winning Mazda6. By doing so, Mazda recognises the diverse needs of Australian SUV buyers, becoming the only country where all three powertrains are offered.
The newly adopted front-wheel-drive CX-7 Classic utilises the naturally aspirated 2.5 litre engine and is mated to a 5-speed Activematic transmission. The inline-four, DOHC, 16-valve configuration delivers maximum power of 120kW at 6,000rpm and maximum torque of 205Nm at 2,000rpm. Fuel economy is an impressive 9.4 litres per 100km.
The new CX-7 Diesel Sports with 2.2 litre turbo-diesel engine boasts maximum power of 127kW at 3,500rpm and a maximum torque of 400Nm at 2,000rpm. Power is delivered via a 6-speed manual transmission and transferred to the road through Mazda’s proven Active Torque Split All-Wheel-Drive system. Impressive performance is matched by keen fuel economy of only 7.6 litres per 100km.
Carried over in the refreshed CX-7 range and available in the CX-7 Classic Sports and CX-7 Luxury Sports is the powerful 2.3-litre Direct Injection Spark Ignition turbo engine producing an impressive 175kW of power and 350Nm of torque. Mated to a 6-speed Activematic transmission, it also utilises the Active Torque Split All-Wheel-Drive system.
