Mazda are bringing the new Mazda CX-7 to Frankfurt
The new Mazda CX-7 gets a nose-job to bring it in with the family feel – as seen on the new Mazda 3 – but with a smattering of chrome detailing. But the big news is on the engine front. In comes a MZR-CD 2.2 litre Turbo-Diesel engine, which should offer much better economy without sacrificing much in the way of performance. But for some reason Mazda hasn’t given us any figures, so it’s just an assumption.
But what Mazda has announced is that the new Mazda CX-7 will gets Mazda’s Selective Catalytic Reduction System (SCR). SCR reduces NOx and particulate emissions by around 40%, which is a big plus. The one real downside of diesel engines is in this area – which is far more important than CO2 emissions – so it’s good to see this system fitted on the CX-7. And it’s pretty maintenance free – it just needs a top-up of ad-blue fluid at service intervals.
In addition to the Mazda CX-7, Mazda will be bringing along the facelifted RX-8 and the Mazda MX-5 Superlight to Frankfurt.
