Mazda updates 'sports' SUV

2009-02-13 09:44

Mazda has chosen Toronto (of all places) to debut its facelifted CX-7 that also sees the SUV gaining an additional engine.

Along with a slightly updated look, note the new grille which links it closely to the new Mazda3 and MX-5, CX-7 also gets an additional powerplant in the form of a naturally aspirated 120-kW 2.5-litre engine.

Those in need of few extra horses need not worry, though - the existing four-cylinder 175-kW turbocharged 2.3-litre unit is carried across.

Improvements have also been made to the body too and CX-7 is now more rigid with improved ride quality.

Interior changes include new gauges and dials, a multifunction display on top of the instrument panel and Bluetooth compatibility.
