There are many storage compartments located around the cabin. Big box center console that has 4.8 liters and improved facelift model with two storage compartments on top for storing smaller items. One of them is a tray of 0.9 liters is the ideal way to hold a cell phone, MP3 player or sunglasses. And a tray at the bottom of the central panel are now equipped with a rubber mat so that small objects do not slide around.
Mazda CX-7 lifted now offers customers in Europe, two in the all-wheel drive systems to choose from. New in the line-up Mazda’s new generation of liter Common rail turbo diesel 2.2 combines high power and torque with fuel consumption and low emissions. Still available is very sporty 2.3-liter turbo gasoline direct injection.
MZR-CD 2.2 – New Powerful Turbo Diesel for Europe
Lively MZR-CD 2.2-liter common rail turbo diesel producing 127 hp kW/173 at 3500 rpm and torque of 400 Nm at 2,000 rpm just massive. This accelerating Mazda CX-7 up in 11.3 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, allowing a maximum speed of 200 km / h. A newly developed variable geometry turbocharger and intercooler that has been optimized especially for the Mazda CX-7 raised contribute to the response fast and strong for the engine speed at low rpm like 1600.
Common-rail system to optimize combustion efficiency. Maximizing fuel injection pressure, using a special fuel pump and 10 very small (0.119 mm) hole injection to achieve 200 MPa injection pressure, one of the highest in the industry. This allows the injection of very punctual, which engineers use to optimize the number of injections per cycle to control the amount of fuel sprayed into the combustion chamber.
Low fuel consumption
Mazda CX-7 with cosmetic surgery MZR-CD 2.2-liter turbo diesel is not only interesting to drive, is also efficient at the pump to the sporty SUV with space and flexibility. This only requires 7.5 liters of fuel per 100 km (combined) with a low compression ratio 16.3:1 (for the compact SUV), a small turbo charger, intercooler efficiency improvement and specific gear ratios. It also uses jets of highly responsive to achieve the minimum injection interval to be 200 microseconds, making the injection about 30 percent faster and allow tight control over the amount of fuel used during the injection.
Clean-Run and the Euro V stage Compliant
The MZR-CD 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine emissions meet the Euro V stage and combines with the latest Mazda exhaust gas treatment technology exclusively. Newly developed diesel particulate filter (DPF) is made of ceramic material high thermal resistance, which includes special Mazdadeveloped catalyst. Catalysts use the oxygen stored in the basic materials, in addition to oxygen in the exhaust gases to improve combustion of soot emissions. By increasing the volume of oxygen, this system allows filter regeneration is faster and more efficiently. In fact, Mazda CX-7 facelift DPF needs to regenerate (NEDC mode) is only half the frequency of the conventional system, and every process of regeneration has only one third of the length. After the clean flue gas from the particles, the new Mazda developed through selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NOx system is much cheaper.
Di?i MZR 2.3 Turbo – original high gas mileage
Gasoline version of the Mazda CX-7 raised to inherit recognized model MZR 2.3-liter turbo engine di?i original. Its direct injection technology has several advantages compared with the intake of some gasoline engines. Torque is 10 per cent at 3000 rpm, because the cooling effect caused by injecting gasoline directly into the combustion chamber. To Mazda CX-7 facelift, di?i gasoline increased. Piston crown now has a cup-shaped cavity that improves air mixture and fuel combustion contribute to a better engine for heating. Now fuel injected intake not only during but also during the compression of a richer mixture around the spark plug and greater combustion stability. A 2.3-liter MZR Turbo di?i kW/260 produce 191 hp at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 380 Nm at rpm high-low from 3000. Respond quickly to pedal movement, speed up the Mazda CX-7 up in 8.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, allowing a maximum speed of 211 km / h
Six-speed manual transmission
Both engines feature a six-speed manual compact three shaft design heritage of the original model. Has triple-cone synchronizers for first, second and third gear, and double cone synchronization for four teeth, to provide smooth shifting characteristics and appropriate. Use low-viscosity transmission fluid for easy movement, even when the cold engine. Six-speed, diesel is set to overdrive for maximum fuel efficiency.
Frame of the Mazda CX-7 facelift is more rigid than the original model and offers increased stability, driving comfort and better handling. Suspension system is more attention to the engine to provide predictability and control of the same superior linear straight-line stability of the original model is known. Together with the Active Torque-Split All-Wheel Drive, this casing makes the patch Mazda CX-7 is sporty and versatile lift.
Increased torsional stiffness to improve ride comfort and handling stability
Genuine Mazda CX-7 Body Shell ahead of its time in launching a combination of high stiffness and low weight. Local reinforcements, high and ultra high strength steel is used to draw the body, helping to avoid weight gain is not necessary, and still provide the best in body rigidity in the segment.
Mazda CX-7 lifting body and add inherit this new rigidity to enhance the steps to 5 percent increase in torsional rigidity, which improves handling stability and helps reduce noise and vibration for a quieter cabin. When combined with new shock absorbers with a softer line, consisting of general driving comfort of the Mazda CX-7 lifted.
Weight loss should be avoided as well, which affected the economy and fuel handling. Engineers use advanced computer-assisted analysis to achieve both goals. They only apply if the reinforcement is more effective, and using lightweight welding a strong bond (with adhesive continued) whenever possible. Stiffness increases to wash her face in the rear wheel house, the door openings, the B-pillars, reinforcements platform and framework for floor heating (diesel).
Suspension and Steering
Mazda CX-7 lift passenger cars inherited as MacPherson strut front and multilink rear suspension in the original model, washing her face smooth to give a more linear feel and performance behavior. Buffer was introduced which gave a gentle tap of the line suspension and improve stability and ride comfort. This completes the front suspension ball-type shoulder strap with low friction bearings, strong lateral force control springs, and installation of rubber six points. Caster angle is enlarged also used to optimize straight-line stability, while the feedback path offers a very good and the grip in corners. The rear suspension also received a new shock absorbers and special attention to cosmetic surgery. Their geometry ensures that the wheels have minimal camber change and maintain almost vertical position even when cornering hard, which is vital for high torque, high performance vehicles like this.
While the high yield of gasoline di?i maintain water power steering system from its predecessor, the new diesel using hydro electric power steering for a greater balance between the fuel and steering feel good.
Electronically controlled Active Torque-Split All-Wheel Drive
Mazda CX-7 Stand All-Wheel Drive cosmetic surgery, Mazda’s system uses a unique Active Torque-Split to translate the maximum torque of the vehicle to the high road smooth and controlled, regardless of the engine under the hood. High-tech high-tech sensors to the All-Wheel Drive system monitors the Mazda CX-7 is the steering angle, speed, wheel speed, lateral G force and the gas valve position, to optimize traction in real time. All-Wheel Drive vehicles, control module then distributes torque between the front and rear through an electronically controlled active torque coupling mounted in front of the rear differential. Distribution system up to 50 percent of engine power to the rear axle for optimum torque distribution in all situations.
Safety and Environment
Mazda CX-7 raised to inherit one of the most comprehensive safety packages in the same segment of vehicles that received the highest of any compact SUV tested by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2007. Renovated model, several new active safety features add even more to peace of mind.
Mazda’s rear vehicle monitoring (RVM) system has recently been introduced for the CX-7 face-lift (depending on the quality and the market). This system uses radar sensors in the rear bumper when the vehicle speed 60 km / h faster to check vehicles traveling behind the vehicle. This warning the driver if the car is approaching from the rear left or right, or in blind spots, a warning lamp on the lamp glass door on the appropriate side. If the driver side turn indicator on the approaching vehicle, sound the warning bells and flashing.
Other new active safety features including a camera that uses glass MID screens to help reverse the driving or parking, a system to monitor tire pressure, and emergency stop signal (ESS), which automatically flashes the taillights danger every time the driver brakes sharply.
If drivers need to slow down, you can depend on the Mazda CX-7 large front ventilated disc brakes (320 mm) and rear (gas: 302 mm, diesel: 325 mm) outside diameter of 10.5 inches long and the master brake cylinder booster for reliable deceleration times with light pedal effort and pedal a short trip. Standard DSC with TCS, ABS, EBD, Emergency Brake Assist, front light and rain sensor automatic wipers (standard and the market).
Mazda CX-7 body cosmetic surgery and a cabin that has been designed with three very strong “Mazda-H body structure ‘that is effective against the impact from any direction and helps to protect passengers. Sub ahead Rack provides high energy absorption in frontal impacts, and has a special section along with the members and the front subframe, which transfers energy from the impact of a decrease in outside cabin. Sub future additional front frame is also designed to help prevent the Mazda CX-7 in the ‘push’ on the hood of a speeding car in a frontal collision. In the back, a very rigid structure including a shock absorption zones to protect the fuel tank better in rear impacts.
In the front seat is designed to help protect the neck and chest in the back of the impact event. They have a very good position head restraints, reinforced binding site, and a reinforced seat back frame structure that holds the head of the inhabitants of the forehead and chest against the headrest, to help prevent whiplash. Standard for all versions of the Mazda CX-7 lifts are front, side and curtain airbags, the collapse of the brake pedal that can reduce the possibility of injury to the driver’s foot, car seats and ISOFIX anchor brackets on the back seat, and pole trim with energy absorbing ribs.
Environmental efforts – 95 percent recycled
Mazda CX-7 reflects the ongoing efforts facelift Mazda to build in a way that has little impact on the environment. This starts at Mazda assembly plant in Japan that ISO 14001 (environmental management standards) for ten years – including 2 Ujina plant in Hiroshima, which assembles Mazda CX-7. Mazda also uses a unique paint three layer system that reduces CO2 by 15 percent and compounds volatile organic (VOCs) in paints and a half.
At the end of his life, Mazda CX-7 face-lift, because all the latest models of Mazda, is about 80 percent recyclable. The remaining 20 percent, most rubber, plastic and glass, called the ISO label material that can easily be sorted and recycled and recovered. Mazda even recycle the material damaged bumpers to create a new bumper. If the parties should be disposed of at the end of life vehicles, which do not contain substances that can pollute the environment. Lead is not used in the Mazda CX-7 Fuel Tank facelift, wire harness and electro-bottom layer, and no hexavalent chromium or cadmium in the component.
