AdBlue® and Mazda
CX-7, the only Mazda diesel model equipped with SCR technology
The Japanese automaker Mazda, does not seem to worry about the new regulations in the United States and Europe concerning diesel cars pollutant emissions . The only diesel model equipped with SCR technology is the CX-7 diesel, which is marketed in Europe. However, SCR technology is becoming increasingly popular with manufacturers so they can meet the nitrogen oxides emission thresholds imposed by anti-pollution standards.
CX – 7, the Mazda model which does not find a place on the market
The Mazda CX-7 is a crossover medium-size SUV manufactured in Hiroshima, Japan since February 2006.
The CX – 7 was released to the public for the first time at the 2006 Los Angeles Expo, in January. Production officially began on 20 February at Ujina, the Mazda factory in Hiroshima. It is the first medium-size Mazda SUV since the the Navajo was abandoned in 1994.
The CX-7 competes with the Chevrolet Equinox and the Mitsubishi Outlander models in the United States, and the Audi Q5 and BMW X 3 in Europe. Between the compact crossovers and SUV, sales for this model have been disappointing, so much so that it was deemed uncompetitive in both categories. In addition, the turbocharged model has a reputation for poor fuel economy. This model could soon be abandoned in favour of its counterpart, the more competitive CX-5.
L’alerte AdBlue® ne disparaît pas alors que vous venez de faire votre plein ?
Si vous faites le plein alors que le réservoir AdBlue® de votre voiture est vide, il faut que vous mettiez une quantité minimum pour que l’AdBlue® versé soit détecté par le système électronique de votre voiture. Il faut ensuite patienter quelques minutes avant de remettre le contact et patienter 10 secondes avant d’allumer le moteur.
