Mazda CX-7 on sale now at Perrys

Now available from Perrys Mazda on Northgate, Huddersfield the diesel-powered Mazda CX-7 Sports Crossover delivers a truly unique driving experience by offering an exhilarating drive, an imposing road-presence, good everyday practicality and four-wheel drive security, plus improved fuel economy and reduced emissions.

This model’s highly competitive 173ps turbo-diesel powertrain is taking Mazda into a whole new sector of the UK marketplace.

"In the best Mazda tradition, our diesel-powered Mazda CX-7 enables us to offer a distinctive vehicle for 2011 that is very different from the huge line-up of SUV-type vehicles currently available," comments Peter Woodley, General Manager at Perrys Mazda"

Its refreshed appearance is heavily orientated towards a sportscar in its styling and driving dynamics, while offering an SUV-style commanding driving position and a strong road presence that portrays Mazda’s ‘dare to be different’ brand identity.

"The Mazda CX-7’s turbo diesel engine generates a maximum torque of 400Nm from only 2,000rpm, with smooth power delivery and real punch from just 1,600rpm, to ensure strong linear acceleration. Together with the five percent stiffer bodyshell, re-tuned suspension, revised gear ratios and lower cabin noise, the latest CX-7 is a remarkably refined and sporty driving experience.

“It has great dynamics that out-perform the class. It’s the ultimate expression of ‘Zoom-Zoom’ driving excitement in a sophisticated Sports Crossover," concludes Peter.

The Mazda CX-7 is marketed in the UK as a single, highly specified and lavishly equipped model called the Sport Tech with larger 19-inch alloy wheels and Xenon headlights, priced at £26,995 (on the road), in a choice of five colours.

Manufactured in Japan, the Mazda CX-7 incorporates several significant changes for the UK market including the 173ps, 2.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder MZR-CD diesel engine producing up to 400Nm of torque and a six-speed manual transmission with a fuel-stretching ‘overdrive’ top gear ratio.

Mazda’s unique Active Torque 4-wheel drive system distributes up to 50 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels to maintain traction. Combined fuel economy returns 37.7mpg with CO2 emissions of 199g/km.

Inside the Mazda CX-7 Sport Tech, there are numerous standard premium features including: leather seats, climate control air-conditioning, cruise control, electric windows, powered driver’s and front passenger’s heated seats, a bespoke BOSE&#174 premium surround sound audio system with 6-CD autochanger and nine speakers, plus integrated satellite navigation and Bluetooth&#174 technology.
