    Default Frankfurt Preview: 2010 Mazda CX-7 gets a familiar fascia

    2010 Mazda CX-7 - Click above for a high-res image gallery

    One of our favorite sporty CUVs -- the Mazda CX-7 -- is due for a refresh and Mazda plans to take the wraps off the 2010 model at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. In addition to receiving Mazda's familiar "happy" family face and some new brightwork, the Euro-spec model gets a 2.2-liter turbo'd oil burner, as opposed to the US-version's 2.3-liter turbo petrol plant. The MZR-CD 2.2-litre turbo-diesel, which makes a "meh" 170 hp and a "yowza" 295 lb-ft of torque, complies with the stringent Euro Stage 5 emissions. Still not quite as tough as US diesel standards, but getting warmer.

    There's no official word from Mazda about whether or not the US version will get the giant happy smiling face. 2010 CX-7s with the big happy face are already sitting on US lots. Though of course, no diesel. Make the jump for the press release.

    Dear Mazda Australia,

    Please give us a manual gearbox option!

    is with all these smiling faces???
    If I wanted smiles, I'd go see a Jim Carey movie dammit!!!!

    Agree with TallDan, the CX-7 needed a manual option. I would have bought one instead of my MPS if there had been that choice...hate autos...

    Totally!
    I wonder how hard it would be to retro-fit the MPS gear-box into an 07 CX-7?
    Re-tune the motor to MPS specs or higher, and what a beast that would be!!!!
