Therefore, it’s no wonder that we are getting all kinds of reports about the 2021 Mazda CX-7 comeback. Currently, there are compact CX-5 and mid-size CX-9 models, but nothing in between. So, it may seem that the lineup is filled up but if we consider the current market that is overflowed by SUVs, there is definitely enough room for a couple more crossovers.
When it comes to the 2021 Mazda CX-7, we are still waiting for the official confirmation, despite all the reports that suggest its arrival already in the next year. We can only speculate about design characteristics at the moment but there are many things that are pretty easy to conclude, especially when it comes to size and most basic design characteristics. Still, keep the following paragraphs with a reserve.
2021 Mazda CX-7 Design
As we’ve just mentioned, some of the things about the new Mazda CX-7 2021 are relatively easy to predict. In the current lineup, there is an empty space between CX-5 and CX9 models, and that place belongs to another mid-size crossover, but with just two rows. That leads us to the segment where you can find models like Ford Edge, Honda Passport etc. In terms of the size, we expect that the new model will be notably shorter compared to the CX-9 model, which measures over 114 inches in wheelbase. This one will probably go around 110.
When it comes to the styling, it’s still early for details. Still, there is no doubt that the new model will stick to the latest design language. This means the latest iteration of KODO design language, something similar to what we’ve seen on the new Mazda 3. Of course, there is a lot of room for exclusive details, while some sources also suggest a sloping roof, which would give a little bit of a couple-like layout. More details will be known once we see a test mule.
One thing is certain with Mazda these days. This manufacturer makes some of the nicest interiors in the business. Although still officially a mainstream brand, Mazda offers cabin designs that are certainly on par with premium carmakers. The new 2021 Mazda CX-7 shouldn’t be an exception. Therefore, we count on a familiar approach, which includes a simplistic design, but full of elegant lines and impressive materials. Of course, a long list of standard equipment is another certain thing.
When it comes to the interior space, we count on two spacious rows of seats. Both of them should offer a sufficient amount of legroom, enough to accommodate five adult passengers. On the other side, the cargo area probably won’t be particularly big, but that’s something we’ve used to see from Mazda models lately.
2021 Mazda CX-7 Engine
When it comes to the powertrain, things are pretty easy to predict. Base models will certainly come with the company’s well-known 2.5-liter turbo-four, which puts out 227 horsepower on regular fuel and 250 on premium gasoline. Most likely, this won’t be the only engine in the offer. It’s no secret that the Japanese manufacturer is working on a new 6-cylinder engine, which should debut in the next-generation Mazda 6. Furthermore, we may see some bigger and more powerful version of the new SkyActive X engine. We presume that automatic transmission will be standard, but it would be great to see Mazda’s excellent manual gearbox in the offer as well.
2021 Mazda CX-7 Release Date and Price
The new crossover is still just a rumor and we are waiting to hear something from the officials. Therefore, take all those reports that suggest the Mazda CX-7 release date for the next year with a reserve. When it comes to the price, we presume that the new model would go around 30.000 dollars, roughly.
