2017 Mazda CX-7 restart

The Japanese car maker will ‘restart’ the production of the CX-7 after the early production finish of the CX-3. The last CX-7’s were produced in the Hiroshima facility back in August 2012.

Prices for the redesigned SUV will be between $21,000 and $27,000, although we expect to see them selling for approximately $25,000.

2017 Mazda CX-7 redesign

Not so much of a redesign; the only carry over from the old production model is the name, everything else is brand new. The CX-7 isn’t going to a sports crossover, but a practical, mid-size SUV with an optional third-row of seats, something akin to the Mitsubishi Outlander and Nissan X-Trail. The new CX-7 should sit right between the compact CX-5 and the larger CX-9.

2017 Mazda CX-7 specs

We don’t know anything about the technical specifications as yet, but we believe that the new CX-7 will be built upon the Skyactiv chassis and will have the independent suspension as fitted to the CX-9.

It is thought that it will be fitted with an all-wheel drive system and an electronically controlled drive system.

2017 Mazda CX-7 engines

Naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines, a turbo diesel and 6-speed auto transmission are expected to be fitted, although because the new model is so far away, the engine specifications could change.

As part of Mazda’s ‘Pro-American’ philosophy, it’s possible that the turbodiesel may not make an appearance, but instead there will be a V6 gas engine.
