Toronto, Ontario – Mazda unveiled its 2010 model year CX-7 crossover today. In addition to revised exterior and interior styling, the 2010 CX-7 is offered with a new 161-horsepower 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine – the same one available in the 2009 Mazda6 and 2010 Mazda3. When equipped with the 2.5-litre engine, the CX-7 model is available with front-wheel drive and a five-speed automatic transmission.

The top engine choice in the 2010 CX-7 remains the turbocharged 244-horsepower 2.3-litre four-cylinder powerplant mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode.

The exterior design of the 2010 CX-7 features revised front and rear fascias including a larger five-point grille design similar to those of the recently redesigned RX-8, MX-5 and Mazda3.

On the inside the 2010 CX-7 receives higher quality materials, a new design for the gauges including blackout meters that feature three-dimensional dials, and a 3.5 inch colour Multi Information Display (MID) positioned at the top of the instrument panel. The front seats gain a three-position memory function for the driver’s seat and a power adjustable recliner for the passenger’s seat.

A Blind Spot Monitoring System, similar to the one found on the Mazda6 & CX-9, is now available to assist the driver in avoiding collisions with other vehicles when changing lanes or merging with traffic.

The 2010 CX-7 also incorporates improvements in body rigidity, lower noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels as well as reduced wind noise.

Pricing and on-sale date have not yet been announced.
