Mazda: CX-7 Out CX-5 In

Mazda has finally decided to stop the selling the company’s CX-7 SUV in the United States and this move was implemented so as to give way for the 2013 Mazda CX-5 SUV. Mazda has been selling the CX-7 in the US for quite a while and the last model that was sold in the US automobile market was the 2012 Mazda CX-7 which is the continued version of the 2011 model. Mazda has stopped the production of the CX-7 last December and the company is currently clearing its showrooms to make way for the replacement which is the 2013 Mazda CX-5.

The 2013 Mazda CX-5 will arrive at the company’s showrooms in the US a few weeks from now. This will be sold at a starting price of $20,695. The starting price of the CX-5 is quite cheaper compared to the CX-7’s starting price which is around $22,985.

Since the CX-5 is cheaper than the CX-7 Mazda is quite confident that the incoming model will be able to fill the gap created by the company’s pulling out of the CX-7. In addition to this, Mazda is also optimistic that the CX-5 will be able to attract more buyers in the US since the vehicle is loaded with a lot of amenities that are found on the CX-7 plus the few additional features that were exclusively available in it.

According to Mazda, the 2013 CX-5 will most likely appear to US car buyers since the vehicle flaunts a fresher styling and a more efficient powertrain options. In addition to this, the vehicle provides greater agility when driven. The CX-5 is powered by a 2.0-liter
