Mazda CX-7 to be discontinued in the United States this year

The Mazda CX-7 crossover will be discontinued for the U.S. market, the automaker confirmed during a recent press event. However, it will still be available in other countries. Sales of the CX-7 through February only averaged around 2,600 units each month. Mazda revealed that at the end of February, there were only 6,100 units of combined inventory and port stock available.

However, there had been no further dealer deliveries scheduled. It’s estimated that at this rate, dealers would run out of the CX-7 in May. In a recent interview, Robert Davis, Mazda's U.S. operations boss, said that the there’s no sound business case to support the CX-7 in passing the next set of U.S. emissions and safety certification obstacles.

Mazda hoped to pave the way for the new CX-5 and didn’t want its showrooms to be crowded with too many crossovers. The CX-5 has less overall length, wheelbase and width than the CX-7, but it still has a bigger interior. The CX-5 will be competing more directly with the major players in the compact crossover segment such as the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4.
