Exterior Design - Now even More Dynamic

The facelifted Mazda CX-7 is just as sporty-looking as before with an extremely flat A-pillar angle of 66º, a rising belt line and roof spoiler, powerful wheel arches (inspired by Mazda RX-8 sports coupe) and large wheels. This is enhanced for the facelift with an all-new lower five-point grille. It looks larger and more aggressive - reflecting Mazda's new-generation design language introduced with the new Mazda3 - and is framed by chrome mouldings for a premium look. New front fog lamps are introduced as well. These are embedded in a bezel design that is more vertical than before, and whose top outer corners are points that seem to flow into the fender panels.

New visual enhancements continue on the sides and rear of the Mazda CX-7 facelift. Chrome-plated mouldings are now placed at the bottom of the doors, around the side windows and just below the large Mazda logo at the rear, and a new and larger roof spoiler is available (all depending on grade).

New 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels complete the exterior updates. Their three dimensional designs add to the vehicle's sporty character. The list of seven exterior colours has been updated with Aluminium Metallic, Stormy Blue Mica and Sparkling Black Mica.
