Happy-Face Looks

The biggest styling difference between the 2010 and 2009 CX-7 is that the 2010 adopts a version of Mazda's grinning grille, which has already shown its face on the redesigned Mazda3 compact car, among other Mazdas. While the design is a little too forceful on the Mazda3, the CX-7's treatment is more subtle and helps keep the design fresh. To see a side-by-side comparison of the 2009 and 2010 CX-7, click here.
