2007 Mazda RX-8 Overview

Mazda's four-door, rotary-engined RX-8 sports coupe was available in a new trim package for 2007. The Grand Touring version of the RX-8 came with such features as leather seats that were heated in the front, eight-way adjustable front seats, an advanced keyless entry system, heated exterior mirrors, a power sliding moonroof, and a nine-speaker Bose premium audio system.
The Grand Touring joined the two other RX-8 trim packages that had been available the previous year. The entry-level Sport package included air conditioning, cruise control, a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel, a tire pressure monitoring system, anti-lock brakes, and front, side, and curtain air bags for the driver and passenger. The mid-level Touring package added Xenon headlights, a day/night rear-view mirror, and Dynamic Stability Control with traction control.
Power for the 2007 RX-8 was provided by a 232-horsepower, 1.3-liter Renesis rotary engine. A six-speed manual transmission was standard, while a six-speed Sport AT automatic transmission was available as an option (horsepower with the automatic transmission dropped to 212).
The RX-8 was also available with two sport suspensions. In the front, a double-wishbone design provided responsive handling and control, while a multilink rear suspension provided stability. Ventilated disc brakes were also part of the package.
Outside, the RX-8 was distinguished by its aggressive nose, swept-back roofline, and flared fenders. The 2007 RX-8 was available in seven exterior colors, including Phantom Blue Mica, Velocity Red Mica, and Sunlight Silver Metallic.
