The CX-7 is a mid-size crossover SUV model from Mazda. The exterior design features revised front and rear fascias with the front adopting the larger five-point grille design similar in appearance to recently redesigned RX-8, MX-5 and Mazda3/Axela. New interiors included redesign gauges including blackout meters that feature three-dimensional dials and a 3.5 inch super-twisted nematic (STN) monochrome and 4.1-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) colour Multi Information Display (MID) positioned at the top of the instrument panel, Bluetooth compatibility, Blind Spot Monitoring System. The CX-7 receives an all-new platform instead of sharing the Ford / Mazda CD3 platform used by the larger Mazda CX-9 / Ford Edge / Lincoln MKX crossovers as well as the Mazda 6. It uses the front suspension of the Mazda MPV minivan, with the rear suspension from the Mazda5. Many of the all wheel drive components come from the Mazdaspeed6. It shares its turbocharged engine with the Mazdaspeed6. It uses a 6-speed automatic transmission. The CX-7 currently slots between the Tribute and the CX-9.
