Mazda New CX-8 Crossover SUV

 

Japanese company, Mazda Motor Corporation announced their plans to launch the Mazda CX-8 crossover SUV in Japan on April 28, 2017. The new model of the Mazda CX-8, feature three rows of seating, will go on sale before the end of the year. The CX-8 will be the flagship of Mazda's SUV lineup in Japan.

 

Mazda aims to create a strong emotional connection with customers, and we will achieve this by continually advancing our lineup to offer all customers our unique combination of driving pleasure and outstanding environmental and safety performance." It is the first model in the new-generation lineup in Japan.

 

 

While the CX-8 will offer seven-passenger seating, the model also will be available with six seats thanks to a pair of comfortable-looking second-row buckets. Mazda is mum on the CX-8’s prospects for the United States, but given the distance between the CX-5 and the CX-9—and the current mania for crossovers—we’d say it’s not outside the realm of possibility.

 

Engine and performance:

The engine included SKYACTIV-D 2.2 new-generation clean diesel engine. Power will come from a 2.2-liter turbocharged inline-4 diesel engine. This engine normally delivers 173 horsepower and a mightily impressive 310 pound-feet of torque.

 

Design and Technologies:

The latest new-generation model featuring the full suite of SKYACTIV technologies and KODO-Soul of Motion design. Mazda's Representative Director, President and CEO, Masamichi Kogai, said that the CX-8 is a new crossover SUV for people who appreciate quality and need a car that seats more than five. It has the looks, performance and high-end feel customers expect from a Mazda, and even adults can sit comfortably in the third row.
