The exterior styling of the forthcoming Mazda CX-8 has been disclosed
If you don’t take a close look at the new CX-8, it’s too hard to set it apart from the sibling CX-9. Still featuring a tapered roofline and a bolder kink in the glasshouse at the D-pillar, generally, the difference between two models is far less distinct. However, the CX-8 seems to be lower and narrower than its sibling. Namely, it will be 175 mm shorter and 1290 mm narrower than the CX-9, but both two models will ride on the same 2,930 mm wheelbase.
The difference between the CX-8 and CX-9 is far less distinct
Driving the new CX-8 will be a 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine instead of a 2.5-litre turbo petrol unit used in the CX-9. As reported, the Mazda CX-8 will be sold exclusively in the home country as Mazda’s only three-row SUV. In the meantime, the CX-9 is just an export offering despite manufactured in Japan.
The all-new CX-8 is scheduled to go on sale before the end of the year.
