What, you thought that there was room for both the CX-5 and the CX-7? Nonsense. After all, the CX-7 was always on the small side for a midsize CUV. The CX-5 is hardly a midget, and the two are nearly the same size overall. The CX-5 actually has more interior room – both for cargo and passengers. Who would buy the CX-7 over the 5?
Mazda knows the answer, of course. No one would. So the CX-7 is officially done in the US after the 2012 model year.
