Is Zoom-Zoom More Important Than Room-Room? 2011 Mazda CX-7 - Click above for high-res image gallery When we think of mid-size crossovers, words like "comfort," "convenience" and "roominess" are the first things to spring to mind. For some CUVs, those are accurate descriptions, but the Mazda CX-7 also has to fulfill a Zoom-Zoom promise.

One of our favorite sporty CUVs -- the Mazda CX-7 -- is due for a refresh and Mazda plans to take the wraps off the 2010 model at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. In addition to receiving Mazda's familiar "happy" family face and some new brightwork, the Euro-spec model gets a 2.2-liter turbo'd oil burner, as opposed to the US-version's 2.3-liter ...
The 2010 Mazda CX-7 may have made its global debut at the Toronto Auto Show in February, but we're seeing it for the first time in person at the Geneva Motor Show this week. At first glance, the CX-7 looks largely unchanged versus the 2009 model, but closer inspection reveals subtle tweaks. New for 2010 are a larger grille, updated front and rear fascias ...
While we were gathered here in rainy Chicago for the Auto Show, we received word that the 2010 refresh for the Mazda CX-7 has in fact debuted some 500 miles away in Toronto, Canada. This switcheroo had us searching the floor here in McCormick for a 2010 model lazing away in the corner of Mazda's stand, but instead we only found the 2009 model. After the ...
Click above for a high-res gallery of the Kesselman Mazda CX-7.From afar, our first reaction was: what's a Matrix doing at the Mazda booth? Upon closer inspection, the dumped wagon you see above revealed itself as a tuned Mazda CX-7.

Japan's 2007 Tokyo Auto Salon is approaching, and that means that manufacturers are in overdrive preparing a bevy of new production and concept vehicles, all of which are in keeping with the tunerrific flavor of the Salon. Mazda is the first to announce its seventeen-strong car lineup (details on each one in the PR after the jump), which is lead by the ...
Though you would think the MazdaSpeed booth would be filled with examples of the MazdaSpeed3 tuned to within an inch of its tires, the CX-7 was actually the darling of this display. No other CX-7 in the MazdaSpeed booth could come close to the Adrenaline concept in terms of presence, which sounds about right considering the design director in charge of its ...
Ford owns about 51% of Mazda. Thus many folks, including some here at Autoblog, assumed the new CX-7 SUV displayed at the North American International Auto Show was built on a shared platform with the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossover vehicles. It didn't help that all three are sized within inches of each other. Not so, according to this report from TCC ...
