Waiting For the Mazda CX-7
by: Terry Brown

For the past months, Mazda, the automobile company, had been featuring the upcoming vehicle that would be joining the Mazda vehicle line up. This new vehicle has been named as the Mazda MX Crossport during its concept phase. Upon its introduction, it would then hold the name Mazda CX-7. This vehicle has already been receiving many praises for its Zoom-Zoom exterior styling as well as its driver oriented interior even if it is just in its concept stage.

Jim Sullivan, the president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations (MNAO), has stated, "Mazda President Hisakazu Imaki is committed to bringing new products to market and expanding our line of vehicles. The addition of the Mazda CX-7 is great news and a critical step forward for us in North America. To successfully grow our business, we have to be true to our core values and for any vehicle to wear the Winged-M logo on the grille, it must have the soul of a sports car. I am convinced this vehicle will deliver."

This vehicle is built in Hiroshima, Japan and it will be sold first in the United States and in the rest of North America. The Mazda CX 7 is actually mounted on a new platform that is not used by any other vehicle yet. However, it uses the front suspension of the Mazda MPV minivan as well as the rear suspension of the Mazda 5. As for the rest of its components, most, including the turbocharged engine, actually come from the Mazda Speed 6. There will be no options for transmission systems for only one will be made available and that will be the 6 Speed Sport automatic. The power of this vehicle comes from the 2.3 liter MZR engine. It can actually produce some 244 units of horsepower at 5,000 rpm and some 258 pound feet of torque at a very low 2,5000 rpm.

What are the features of this Mazda CX 7? The list includes a fully independent suspension, four wheel ventilated disc brakes with standard four-wheel anti lock braking system, the dynamic stability control, the traction control system, an active torque split all wheel drive, a computer controlled coupling and a front wheel drive.
