Mazda stops CX-7 production image

The Japanese based automaker Mazda has recently announced that the production on the CX-7 was stopped because of the low demand and constantly decreasing sales figures.

Despite the fact that Mazda has updated the CX-7 back in 2010, when it also came with a naturally aspirated four-cylinder 16-valve 2.5 liter engine, mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, the crossover didn’t impress anyone and it had poor sales in the UK, where the company said that only 800 to 1000 units have been sold annually since the model has been introduced there in 2007. The refreshed lineup of the Mazda CX-7 is also getting the SkyActiv technologies from the CX-5, but, once again, this didn’t impress anyone.

As a quick reminder, the Mazda CX-7 is the production version of the MX-Crossport concept car and the model has been first shown back in 2006, during the Los Angeles Auto Show. The Mazda CX-7 is coming in a four-door version, with a choice of 3 engines and 3 transmissions. The Japanese crossover is 4,681 mm long (from 2010), 1,872 mm wide and 1,646 mm tall, with a curb weight of 1,782 kg and a wheelbase of 2,750 mm.
