North Vancouver, British – The Mazda CX-7 GX is new to the Mazda for the 2010 model year. at $27,995, the new front-wheel drive GX is cheaper than the GS, which was the trim last year and is now the trim below the GT.

It’s worth noting too the Mazda Tribute ($23,450) on the Ford Escape) continues in 2010 lineup as a more utilitarian alternative to the sportier

The new CX-7 GX is by Mazda’s familiar 161-hp four-cylinder engine instead of the turbocharged 2.3-litre motor in the CX-7 GS ($32,295) and GT ($38,990) As well, the GX gets a five-speed instead of a six-speed automatic and is available with front-wheel only while the GS and GT come all-wheel drive only. The GX comes with 17-inch instead of 18-inch (GS) and (GT) respectively.

Like all 2010 CX-7 the GX receives Mazda’s new corporate treatment with a larger flanked by smaller side a more rigid body reduces vibration and cabin and revised suspension tuning for a comfortable ride.

Inside, a revised interior with quality plastics, a new steering that telescopes in and out as well as up and down, rain-sensing wipers, a new display in the upper dash, and a new temperature gauge and tire monitoring system.

There’s also a new optional Package ($2,995) on the base GX that makes available upholstery, power driver and passenger seats, heated seats, automatic climate and Bluetooth hands-free phone

Driving impressions

First in 2006, the CX-7 with the motor combined unusually styling and performance with the of a compact SUV. Its car-like construction, fully independent four-wheel disc brakes, turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder and six-speed automatic transmission manual shift capability it an exciting vehicle to drive, not often said of small In a test drive of the 2009 GT last year, I wrote, CX-7 drives like a sedan – yet has the room to take the and their gear on a weekend trip – and more significantly, its available all-wheel drive and ground clearance – a weekend trip.”
