Mazda CX-7


"A truly potent sport crossover SUV"

Designed to blend both sports car and sports utility vehicle, attributes sporting and dynamic features exclusively for every road you're ever going to travel. The birth of the CX7 here in the Philippines draws in crowd of individuals gambling on 5 seater SUV rather the traditional 7 seater. This places CX7 on the same road with Honda CR-V, Toyota Rav4, and Hyundai Tucson.





Though of much no difference to the old CX-7, exterior styling is emotional! Lines and contour blend with each other incorporating the details of a sports car to an SUV. The craftmanship and design is very mindful. and what strikes me most is the sharp and aggressive front contours. The CX-7 rolls on 17inch alloy wheels with a dimension of 4.7 X 1.9m, spacious enough to be a midsize suv. And i should tell you that its HID ready, need not to pimp the eyes!

On the inside the feel is sophisticated. The panel board is equipped with advance control systems including an LCD display for fuel consumption, maintenance record, and vehicle performance. Plus the meter cluster is inspired by the thoroughbred Mazda RX-8. Active auxiliary controls are still available on the steering wheel for the driver's accessibility and comfort. I personally think this should come on all cars today. One thing disturbs me is the cliff-cut on the facia board between the trip LCD display which worst extends all the way to both ends, totally disagrees the concept of continuous flow. Nonetheless, the driver's seat is electronically adjustable giving perfect command to the fit you perfectly want. So no more pushing, sliding and pulling.Lelz. Legroom is good but head room is quite lower than the normal. Upholstery is leather with perforated inserts, and both front seats have heaters. Boot and utility space is excellent. And here comes my surprise! the floor console between the front seats is large enough to hold most notebook computers which means no more notebooks on the seats!


The CX70 represents Mazda'a newly adopted MZR 2.5 petrol engine that delivers sound drivability and fuel economy without compromising the zoom zoom driving performance. Runs in 9km/liter in mixed driving for a luxury SUV sure feels good. In addition driving stability and handling is superb especially when doing sudden stops, high speed on curves, and quick shifts between cars. This is because of the integrated Dynamic Control System (DCS) and Traction Control System (TCS) that greatly attributes to safety, stability, and performance of the vehicle. Techtronic activematic transmission still comes with this baby as well as the rest of the Mazda Pack.

I'm just searching for buying one good SUV. I don't know Mazda CX-7 or CX-9 would be better for it. I need your suggestion regarding this.

the cx-7 is a crossover so its smaller compared to the cx-9 and a lot cheaper also. other than that there is not much difference. im driving a cx-7 now and performance is worth the cost!

Hey nike,

I am totally in love with the cx7! I am currently abroad but will be home for good in the Philippines come december. And the Cx7 might as well be my birthday gift for myself. quick question though since you mentioned you have one already - the cx7 i saw when I went to singapore had a bluetooth connectivity to the iphone4 that gives you an option to hear who you are talking to through the cars audio system. Is it the same as the edition that came in the Philippines? plus when you bought from mazda.. did they throw in any extra promo/accesory etc?...

Thanks nike! will greatly appreciate a reply

hello! that will be great if that's your plan. though the cx7 is not so cheap on gas consumption. with regards to your question, the cx7 release we have here in the Philippines doesn't have a bluetooth connectivity feature in its system. there is also no extra promo or accessory included.
