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.
Check out more news on the Mazda CX-5.
“We’re excited about the CX-5’s sales potential, and we’re expecting aggressive sales in the 2012 calendar year,” Robert Davis, executive vice president-U.S. operations at Mazda, tells WardsAuto.
I’m not sure if I agree with the move but hey, they know better.
Refresher: Power for the 2013 Mazda CX-5 comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that puts out 155-hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. EPA rated fuel-economy comes in at 26/35 mpg (city/highway). Prices for the CX-5 start at $20,695.
