It looks like this model is coming back after five years of a break, as 2018 Mazda CX-7. If you look at the company’s model name numeration, you will notice that one is missing. After several years, we will once again see this model in the offer. The original was in production between 2006 and 2012. However, nowadays we have a CX-9 model that took the same place in the lineup. So, there is a question where 2018 CX-7 will be positioned. If we consider that CX-5 is a compact, while CX-9 is a mid-size crossover, it is hard to say what exactly this new model will look like. According to some reports, it will feature some kind of a stretched version of CX-5’s platform, with a sleek, coupe-like profile.
2018 Mazda CX-7 redesign
According to the latest reports, 2018 Mazda CX-7 will come back. However, it looks like it won’t share the same characteristics as the original. It will find a new place in the company’s lineup. Several reports suggest that the new model will feature some kind of a stretched version of CX-5’s platform. It will feature a longer wheelbase and probably three rows of seats. When it comes to exterior design, we will probably see a coupe-like, sleek design. The 2018 Mazda CX-7 will completely follow the latest design language of the brand and maybe add some new details too. We will see familiar parts such as the shield-like grille, which extends to the headlights. Many details will be borrowed for a new Koeru Concept. When it comes to the interior, 2018 CX-7 will most likely feature the same cabin design as CX-5, but it should also add plenty of new details.
