Gettin' All Under the CX-7

Mazda pulled a fast one and unveiled the CX-7 crossover at LA, after announcing the car was slotted for Detwa. We think it's a good-looking little faux-truck thingy, and if the company's recent offerings are any indication, it should be a capable on-road ute. But the part of the display that surprised us most was the driveline/suspension. It's a quirk on our part, but we've seen so many rolling hot rod chassis over the years that seeing the front and rear connected only by a driveshaft and exhaust system was a little disorienting for us. Yes, we are Neanderthals. Click through for more pics.
