Report: Say goodbye to the Mazda CX-7 from the U.S.

That’s right ladies and gents, one of our favorites from Japan will soon no longer be sold in the United States. Mazda will be pulling the plug on the CX-7 SUV from the American market to make more room for the recently launched CX-5 compact crossover.
