Mazda reveals exterior of soon-to-be-launched New CX-8

Mazda has previewed the exterior of the upcoming all-new CX-8 Crossover SUV. The all-new CX-8 is Mazda’s latest SUV to feature three rows of seating. Sales roll-out in Japan has been scheduled before the end of the year.





Mazda’s latest new-generation model, the CX-8 will serve as the flagship of the brand’s SUV lineup in Japan; it will replace the current CX-9. Mazda deems that the new CX-8 is a new kind of crossover SUV with emphasis on premium offerings and an SUV that fits more than five. Thanks to a rather generous overall dimensions, the CX-8 measures 4,900 millimeters in length and has a width of 1,840mm, with a wheelbase of 2,930 mm. Additionally, a roomier cabin is expected with the new vehicle’s gross height of 1,730 mm. Compared to the CX-9, the new CX-8 is a tad bit more compact, but hardly noticeable. Interior space has not been compromised, when compared to the CX-9, as two adults can fit comfortably in the third row seats.

Mazda designers have worked to add a new dimension of maturity to the KODO-Soul of Motion design theme. Boasting a more refined KODO – Soul of Motion design, the new Mazda CX-8 resembles the CX-9 rather closely with sleek motifs and sporty proportions. Like the CX-9, the new CX-8 offers an impressive high-end feel and performance to boot. As the new flagship SUV in the line-up for the Japanese market, the CX-8 provides a classy impression to go with an interior comprising elements such as high-quality materials and refined color tones.

At the time of its official launch, the interior of the CX-8 is expected to be finished with quality craftsmanship, as well as infused with the latest in multimedia system, Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE suite, a premium audio and navigation system, interesting decorative trims and panels, and an organized center stack with new meter illumination, much like the outgoing CX-9.

The new CX-8 will be powered by a SKYACTIV-D 2.2 new-generation clean diesel engine, with output figures close to the specification of the CX-9. The engine is paired to a SKYACTIV-Drive 6-Speed automatic transmission.

Mazda aims to become a brand with which customers feel a strong emotional connection. The Hiroshima-based company will continue advancing its lineup to offer all customers both driving pleasure and outstanding environmental and safety performance.
