The Mazda CX-7 has finally gone diesel. This new 2.2 litre engine can achieve 0-62mph in 11.3 seconds and has a top speed of 124mph. The economy for this new diesel Mazda CX-7 returns 37.7 mpg.
The revised Mazda CX-7 is also the first Japanese passenger car to have a diesel engine fitted with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, which cuts emissions of nitrous oxide (NOx) by 40 per cent. Thanks to the compact design of the SCR system, the Mazda CX-7 Diesel offers an identical 455 litres of luggage space as the current model.
With some suspension and steering revisions the Mazda CX-7 is now a much smoother ride, open the doors and you'll find enough interior space to rival any SUV and flexible seating allows up to five passengers to travel in comfort. Should you decide to swap passengers for cargo a quick pull on the boot mounted handles collapses the rear seats and reveals a flat spacious loadbay. The Mazda CX-7 has the high driving position and superior visibility of an SUV, while its car-like agility means it's perfectly at home in the city.
