CHINA: Mazda CX-7 comes back to life

Two years after production ended in Japan, the Mazda CX-7 has returned to life courtesy of China's FAW Mazda joint venture.

Two years after production ended in Japan, the Mazda CX-7 has returned to life courtesy of China’s FAW Mazda joint venture.

Originally made at the Ujina 2 plant in Japan, the CX-7 first entered production in March 2006. There was a mid-life facelift in 2009 and build ended in August 2012. The model’s effective replacement in global markets has been the only slightly smaller CX-5. This SUV is also made in China but not by FAW – it is part of the Changan JV with build taking place in Nanjing.

FAW Mazda is offering the Changchun-built CX-7 with two four-cylinder petrol engines: a normally aspirated 2.5-litre or a turbocharged 2.3. Buyers have the choice of front- or all-wheel drive variants with automatic transmission standard for all.
