An all-new, naturally aspirated, 161 horsepower, 2.5 litre four-cylinder and five-speed automatic transmission have been added. The familiar 244 horsepower, 2.3 litre four-cylinder, direct injection, turbo-charged engine and six-speed automatic transmission continue as the top powertrain choice. The CX-7 is a sporty-looking and sporty-handling CUV that will haul nearly as much stuff as it does people. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. It comes standard with four-wheel, anti-lock disc brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and electronic stability control with traction control.
The Mazda CX-7 crossover receives an exterior and interior styling refresh and mechanical refinements for 2010.
