23rd August, 2009

Mazda Australia will later this year add two new engines to its updated CX-7 range.

On sale in November, the refreshed CX-7 range will 'adopt' the 2.5 litre naturally-aspirated and 2.2 litre turbo-diesel engines already used in the Mazda 6. By doing so, Mazda recognises the diverse needs of Australian SUV buyers, becoming the only country where all three powertrains are offered.

Mazda’s refreshed SUV will be available in a choice of three powertrains, three transmissions, two drivetrains and four feature-packed grades.

The newly adopted  front-wheel-drive CX-7 Classic utilises the naturally aspirated 2.5 litre engine and is matched to a 5-speed Activematic transmission. The inline-four, DOHC, 16-valve configuration delivers maximum power of 120 kW at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 205 Nm at 2,000 rpm. Fuel economy is 9.4 litres per 100 km.

The new CX-7 Diesel Sports with 2.2 litre turbo-diesel engine boasts maximum power of 127 kW at 3,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 400 Nm at 2,000 rpm. Power is delivered via a 6-speed manual transmission and transferred to the road through Mazda’s Active Torque Split All-Wheel-Drive system. The fuel consumption is 7.6 litres per 100 km.
