Mazda Motor Corporation have released this single image of its upcoming CX-8 crossover SUV.
The automaker’s latest model will lbe the flagship SUV sitting above the CX-3 and lager CX-5. Just like the Mazda CX_9 (which is available in the USA but not locally), the CX-8 will be even more spacious than current offerings in South Africa and provide a third row of seats, to transport a total of seven passengers. The Japanese manufacturer says that the new CX-8 will be aimed at people ‘who both appreciate quality and need to seat more than five’.
Customers can expect performance and a high-end feel and the familiar KODO-Soul of Motion design theme that is encapsulated int he new CX-5, however adding ‘a new dimension of maturity’ to the CX-8.
No other details have been made available yet, but the automaker says that the crossover will be available in Japan later this year, while the global roll-out is yet to be confirmed.
