Review of Mazda CX-7 2010
I don’t often lament the presence of the clutch pedal and I won’t come now. But it seems so embarrassing that very few people will experience this special diesel engine, just because they won’t exchange their own gears.
The Mazda CX-7 has been revamped and the highlight of the upgrade is the addition of a 2.2-liter turbin engine to the specs sheet.
The diesel has a 400Nm wallop in this and Mazda6, but the CX-7 has an AdBlue emission system that helps cut down nitrous oxide (NOX) – perhaps to reduce guilt, but that and fuel consumption Does a digit that can frequently appear on trip computers also help.
The diesel engine claims a fuel economy figure of 7.6 liters / 100km and CO2 emissions of 202g / km, with the AdBlue system cutting NOX emissions using a natural urea-based chemical reaction in the system. discharge.
This is a comfortable cabin with all the easy-to-use features, Mazda says it has used improved quality plastic, reduced sound and gives it more to resist vibration and feels like all. have been made to have a good effect.
The dashboard and equipment have been fortunate to follow the path of the Mazda3, with a multi-information display mounted on the dashboard to control sat-nav (when fitted), Bluetooth phone link, audio system bars, reversing cameras and cruise computers.

Anyone looking to hit anything other than A-class dirt roads should look elsewhere – with around 170mm of light, this is not an offroad, it’s an SUV that is definitely a superficial machine. Closed face, a good thing. Its ride is not uncomfortable in everyday traffic, but this is where the lack of auto home comes.
Due to the proximity of fuel prices at the moment, the diesel engine’s solid engines are attractive to the desire of turbo petrol, although maintenance will compensate for that – let’s hope Mazda will Dynamic completion of the package.
The six-speed manual is a nice enough gearbox to use, though the clutch is a bit flexible, making it less at home in traffic and better when sliding it on a rural road.
That’s where this machine is more at home, quietly carrying passengers along a country road, gently sipping on a tank when it makes good use of its torque. Pointing at corners with very little body and vague roll is often associated with the SUV segment.
Ultimately it still has its limits, it’s a tall machine, but enthusiasm for corners that exceed the standard for a segment still has a lot of trucks in it.
