Mazda needs a crossover SUV that will be slotted between its two existing models. The timing is perfect for the comeback of the 2023 Mazda CX-7.

It will almost certainly not use Mazda's e-Skyactiv-G mild-hybrid system, but it's possible the new SUV could pair a Skyactiv-G engine with Toyota's hybrid system.”

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, September 8, 2021 / -- The carmaker discontinued the CX-7 a long time ago.

However, the mid-size segment is more popular than ever, especially three-row SUVs. The future 2023 Mazda CX-7 is very likely to get a hybrid drivetrain. This might be one of the hottest models in the market next season.

The company already offers a CX-8, which can fit between the new 2023 Mazda CX-5 and CX-9. But, this vehicle is on sale only in Japan. The new Mazda CX-7 will be the SUV for the rest of the world. Its appearance in the USA depends on many things, but experts believe that Mazda won’t miss the opportunity to compete in the major stage and for the highest stakes.

The Comeback

The new Mazda CX-7 for 2023 will probably return next year. In 2022, we will see the premiere of the crossover SUV with its new look. Rumors are claiming the vehicle is getting a coupe body, which is the opposite of these speculations claiming that a three-row seven-seater is an option. This is a double-bladed sword for the Japanese manufacturer. Benefits are the lack of competition and attractive styling. Buyers won’t like its bad practicality. Another good thing the coupe crossover is facing is the lack of competition.

2023 Mazda CX-7 Specs

A 2.5-liter engine and SkyActiv technology are the safe bets for the Mazda CX-7. The SUV won’t use an old 2.3-liter unit. Instead, a larger displacement is going to return 250 horsepower with the help of turbochargers. The fuel economy is more than decent, with 25/31 mpg. If the engine gets electric help, we can easily see the mileage above 35 mpg combined.
Still, there is a more efficient powerplant in the family. A 2.2-liter turbodiesel is already available in the US under the hood of the CX-5. The Mazda CX-7 will be heavier, but the mileage won’t suffer too much. On the other hand, a turbodiesel mill can produce 170 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque, giving an excellent alternative to all these petrol SUVs in the market.

According to, it is highly likely that Mazda will pair a Skyactiv-G engine with Toyota's hybrid system.

Release Date and Price

The expected sale date is the end of 2022, while the starting price for this model will be about $ 30.000.

In the Reedit we can see that many people think that this is a fantastic Mazda move, especially for the US car market.
