By looking at the company’s crossover lineup, it is easy to notice an interesting gap in the designation. The all-new 2019 Mazda CX-7 is about to fill up this hole. This crossover has been in production between 2006 and 2013. After launches of new CX-5 and CX-9, there was no space for this one anymore. In the current lineup, the CX-9 takes the place of a mid-size crossover. On the other side, CX-5 is compact. So, one of the questions for the upcoming model is its place in the lineup. Also, we are waiting to see which technologies will the new 2019 CX-7 adopt. All in all, this arrival should be very interesting.
2019 Mazda CX-7 Design
After a generation skip, the new 2019 Mazda CX-7 will come with significant improvements in all aspects. First of all, it will adopt the new version of the KODO design language, which characterized all new models of the brand. The new CX-5 has been released last year and this one should have a lot in common. Moreover, this model will be slotted between current CX-5 and CX-9 models, which brings another question – size.
How big will 2019 Mazda CX-7 be?
One of the central questions about 2019 Mazda CX-7 is its position in the company’s lineup. There are already compact and mid-size crossovers in the offer, so this one should walk on a fine line between them. Most likely, this will be a compact crossover. However, we expect to see a slightly longer wheelbase, which will provide enough space to offer the third row of seating as a standard feature.
One of the most interesting aspects of the new 2019 Mazda CX-7 should be interior. Most likely, it will mimic the recently introduced CX-5, at least when it comes to the dash. The new layout brings hi-quality materials and takes convenience to the completely new level. Thanks to the longer wheelbase, we expect to see pretty generous legroom as well. In terms of equipment, expect to see Mazda’s familiar trim level organization, which includes models like Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring, as well as some sub-trims. Even base models are expected to come with a full load of standard features.
One of the aspects where we expect a lot from the upcoming 2019 Mazda CX-7 is safety. The company should offer a complete suite of new safety systems. Some of the highlights should be blind-zone detection, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and rear cross-traffic. Mazda’s new head-up display with traffic sign recognition should be available as well.
2019 Mazda CX-7 Engines
An engine lineup is another mystery of the new 2019 Mazda CX-7. So far, we can say for sure that the new crossover will feature the company’s familiar SkyActive G units. Base models should feature a 2.0-liter engine which is good for about 155 horsepower. A quite bigger 2.5-liter unit is good for about 185 horsepower. The same engine is available in a variant with a turbocharger, which delivers around 250 horses.
Will 2019 Mazda CX-7 get a new Skyactive X engine?
The new Mazda 3 is about to come with a revolutionary SkyActive X compression ignition engine. Soon after, we could expect to see this engine in other Mazda models as well, including this one. The new engine comes with revolutionary technology which will provide significant efficiency improvement. In practice, this would mean about 30% more power and 20-30% fuel economy.
2019 Mazda CX-7 Release Date and Price
The 2019 Mazda CX-7 should come sometime in the next year. base models will probably go around 27/28.000 dollars.
