The 2017 Mazda CX-7 has been long under production. The good news is we can expect it to hit the roads sometime next year. Let’s take a look at what we might expect from Mazda’s new CX-7 version.
2017 Mazda CX-7: Design and Features
It is believed that 2017 Mazda CX-7 is going to have far more refined exterior than some of its recent counterparts. The earlier models were characterized by refined exterior designs that were further smoother and straightforward in nature having some simple overtures and curves. This new version is going to have some changes in relation to its design. However, one can expect that the simplistically modern look which characterized Mazda’s other CX-7 models is going to be present in this new SUV as well. As for the elements that will go through complete transformation are the bumpers, LED headlights and taillights, all of which are likely to become standout features of this new version.
Mazda is not going to do too much work with the interiors of its new Mazda CX-7 model, and we can expect more or less similar features of what we saw in the previous CX-7 models. An infotainment system with touchscreen display, which features Bluetooth and iPhone connectivity, is impressive. The vehicle will have ample room for legs and head in both front and back.
2017 Mazda CX-7: Engine Options and Safety
When it comes to engines, we can expect that Mazda is going to put a slightly larger engine in this vehicle. However, this engine is definitely going to score high points in terms of performance and fuel economy. The 2017 Mazda CX-7 is going to come with the new line of Sky Active engines, so you can expect the amazing performance and good fuel economy. The base models are going to be powered with a 2.0 liter engine. It will be provided with 200 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, the higher models are going to come with a 2.5-liter turbocharged, intercooled V6 engine that can deliver 170 pound-feet of torque at 2500 rpm and more than 250 horsepower at 5000 rpm. This new vehicle is also going to be available in a diesel variant.
It will have a 2.2-liter turbo-diesel engine that packs 173 horsepower and will be fitted with either a 6-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission. In all of the engine variations, there is going to be a sufficient improvement in carbon emission and fuel consumption.
The 2017 Mazda CX-7will include a number of safety features, such as ABS, car stabilization; roll control as well as dual front airbags. The steering wheels are going to be telescopic and tilted; they will also have the option of selective power steering.
2017 Mazda CX-7: Price and Release
