Powertrains

Mazda CX-7 facelift now offers customers in Europe two All-Wheel Drive, powertrains to choose from. New to the line-up is Mazda's new-generation 2.2-litre common-rail turbo diesel that combines high power and torque with low fuel consumption and emissions. Still available is the extremely sporty 2.3-litre turbo petrol engine with direct injection.

MZR-CD 2.2 - New Powerful Turbo Diesel for Europe

The lively MZR-CD 2.2-litre common-rail turbo diesel produces 127 kW/173 PS at 3,500 rpm and a massive 400 Nm of torque at just 2,000 rpm. It accelerates the Mazda CX-7 facelift in 11.3 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and allows a top speed of 200 km/h. A newly developed variable-geometry turbo charger and a special intercooler that has been optimized for the Mazda CX-7 facelift contribute to quick, powerful response at engine speeds as low as 1,600 rpm.

The common-rail system optimises combustion for high efficiency. It maximises fuel injection pressure, using a special fuel pump and 10 very small (0.119 mm) injector holes, to achieve injection pressure of up to 200 MPa, one of the industry's highest. This allows very precise injection timing, which engineers used to optimize the number of injections per cycle and to control the amount of fuel sprayed into the combustion chamber.
