The Mazda stand at next month’s Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) will exhibit the new Mazda CX-7, featuring Mazda’s new ‘family face’ as seen on Mazda6 and Mazda3. Mazda also says the  new model comes with an innovative new high-output diesel engine. 

Mazda says the MZR-CD 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine in the CX-7 complies with Euro Stage V emissions regulations.

Mazda CX-7 debuts as the first Japanese passenger car to have a diesel engine fitted with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, which cuts NOx emissions by 40 percent. 

This technology will be offered exclusively to European customers in the new diesel version of the new Mazda CX-7 sports crossover SUV, when it goes on sale in October this year.
