The Mazda CX-8 family SUV

The Mazda CX-8 family SUVSpeculation has swirled that the Japan-only CX-8 – first deliveries will head out of showrooms in December – could make its way here to fill a gap in Mazda’s showroom, sitting in between the mid-size CX-5 and the larger CX-9. Built on a modified CX-5 platform, it has either six or seven seats – the six-seat version has captain’s chairs for the second row – it also has something the larger CX-9 doesn’t; a frugal diesel diet.

The CX-8‘s 2.2-litre four-cylinder engine uses Mazda’s latest Skyactiv fuel-saving technology to up its performance to 140kW and 450Nm, compared with 129kW and 420Nm for the four-pot diesel’s previous tune. In Australia, the CX-9 is fitted with a 170kW/420Nm turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine.

With the rearmost seats folded the trunk jumps to 572 liters. Pricing starts at 3,196,800 yen for the XD trim with six seats and FWD, and can go up to 4,190,400 yen for the flagship six-seat-only XD L Package with AWD.
