The Mazda stand at this month’s IAA Frankfurt Motor Show will exhibit the new Mazda CX-7.
Offering a bolder stance, the new Mazda CX-7 is powered by a high-output diesel engine.
Under the bonnet, the clean-running and highly efficient MZR-CD 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine will offer customers eco-friendly performance twinned with a sporty drive already familiar to the current model.
The new Mazda CX-7, despite being a roomy SUV, complies with Euro Stage V emissions regulations, achieving a significant reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. And it will provide a greater level of torque lower in the rev range, with maximum power also available lower down.
The CX-7 debuts as the first Japanese passenger car to have a diesel engine fitted with a selective catalytic reduction system, which cuts NOx emissions by 40 per cent. This technology will be offered exclusively to European customers in the new diesel version of the Mazda CX-7 sports crossover SUV, when it goes on sale in October this year.
Thanks to the compact design of the SCR system, the Mazda CX-7 Diesel offers users the same 455 litres of luggage space as the previous gasoline engine version, and it is user-friendly. Refills of the AdBlue® liquid to the SCR system are required only during scheduled maintenance.
Mazda says that joining the clean-running new Mazda CX-7 diesel in Frankfurt will be a host of other environmental technologies currently making Mazda’s European line-up greener than ever before – including Mazda’s fuel-saving i-stop system, and rotary hydrogen powertrain technology.
