Interior Design - Enhanced Quality Feel

SUV roominess and practicality, combined with an ergonomic cockpit, sporty touches and high craftsmanship, were an appealing combination of the original Mazda CX-7. The facelift has all this plus updates that are meant to enhance the interior's quality look and feel even further. There is a new trim and dashboard material with dimples and round edges that give these surfaces a higher quality feel and make them more dirt resistant. The steering wheel is newly designed and includes more control buttons. The instrument cluster in front of the driver gets new dials and white pointers for a three-dimensional look, and new blue-ring illumination.

Stretching across the dashboard is a redesigned double-roof hood. It now rises in the middle to make room for a new Multi-Information Display (MID). The audio panel is also updated with either piano black or metal-look edging on the sides.

Other quality enhancements include new low-glare chrome plating on the vertical spoke of the steering wheel, and the chrome rings around the air vents in the centre and on the sides of the dashboard. Soft padding is introduced for the door-trim armrests and the centre console lid (depending on grade). When combined with the facelift's two interior colour schemes of black or sand beige (depending on grade), these details give the Mazda CX-7 facelift a high quality feel.
