NEW FOR 2011:

– No changes

For 2011, the Mazda CX-7 is unchanged.

The CX-7 comes with a choice of two engines: a naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder with five-speed automatic transmission in the GX, and a turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder with six-speed automatic transmission in the GS and GT. Both have manual shift mode. The GX is front-wheel drive only, while the GS and GT are strictly all-wheel drive. The all-wheel system uses active torque split and can deliver up to 50/50 power distribution when necessary.

The GS adds 18-inch alloy wheels and dual exhaust outlets.

The GT adds 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, blind spot monitoring system, heated mirrors with integrated turn signals, xenon headlamps with manual levelling, fog lights, cargo cover, electroluminescent gauges, intelligent key system, rear-view camera, auto-dimming mirror, garage door opener, power sunroof, heated leather seats with eight-way driver and four-way passenger power adjustment, driver’s side memory, leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, six-CD/MP3 stereo, and Sirius satellite radio.
