2009 Geneva: 2010 Mazda CX-7 gets a facelift

Following its debut at the 2009 Canadian International Auto Show, Mazda brought the new 2010 Mazda CX-7 to the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. The successful Mazda crossover, with total sales passing 165,000 units and more than 10 global automobile awards, the 2010 model gets an appealing new facelift.

While the European market will get Mazda’s MZR-CD 2.2 diesel and the 2.2 DOHC turbocharged common-rail diesel, the U.S. market will get a choice of two gasoline options. The first will be a 2.5L MZR 4-cylinder unit that makes 161-hp and a torque of 161 lb-ft. It will be mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission and a front-wheel-drive system. The range-topping will remain the same with a 244-hp MZR 2.3L DISI Turbo 4-cylinder engine.

Final U.S. specs and pricing details are expected to be unveiled at the 2009 New York Auto Show.
