The Mercury Cars Guide : November 7th 2009
10--- Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, November 7, 2009 Mazda move to expand market share STUART MARTIN MAZDA has broadened the appeal of its CX-7 range of SUVs with the addi- tion of two new power- plants. Neither of the engines will be unfamiliar to those pedalling around in other Mazda products --- the 6 in particular --- but the facelifted four- model CX-7 has a new price-point entry-level. The CX-7 Classic kicks the range off from $33,990, with the Classic Sports dropping by almost $3000 to $38,990. The new Diesel Sports enters the range at $43,640, while the flagship Luxury Sports has also dropped to start from $45,990 (almost $2000 down on its predecessor). Powered by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder, teamed only with a five-speed auto and driving the front wheels, the new entry-level CX-7 Classic features stan- dard stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes, emergency brake assist, dual front, front-side and full- length curtain airbags, the multi- information display, a reversing cam- era and a trip computer. The other new addition to the CX-7 range is the Diesel Sports, powered by the turbodiesel from the Mazda6 --- albeit with an Australian passenger- car-first AdBlue NOX emissions con- trol system. The 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine is also doing without an automatic in the CX-7, using the same six-speed man- ual/all-wheel drive transmission to put its 127kW and 400Nm to ground. The diesel claims a fuel economy figure of 7.6 litres per 100km and CO2 emissions of 202g/km, with the Ad- Blue system cutting NOX emissions using a urea-based natural chemical reaction within the exhaust system. The added features on the diesel include satnav, powered and heated front seats, heated front exterior mir- rors and leather trim. The Classic Sports and Luxury Sports all-wheel drive models retain the 175kW/350Nm 2.3-litre turbo- charged four-cylinder petrol engine, hooked up to the six-speed automatic. The Classic Sports starts from $38,990 with a features list that adds new 18 inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps and a dual chrome exhaust to the Classic model's list. The Luxury Sports flagship is priced from $45,990 and has much of the equipment from the Diesel Sports, as well as 19 inch alloy wheels and tilt and slide glass sunroof. You won't need to be a trainspotter to pick the new CX-7, with the family's new larger grille, new alloy wheels, a redesigned rear bumper and spoiler. The new CX-7 range will have broader appeal for those looking for a SUV image, or buyers wanting good dirt road manners as well as bitumen abilities.
