The 2018 CX-8 diesel seven-seater has just gone on sale – and Mazda revealed details just days ahead of its 1st July on-sale date.
The CX-8 range includes 3 models – the Sport FWD ($42,490 before on-road costs), the Sport AWD ($46,490 before on-road costs) and the Asaki AWD ($62,490).
The base Sport FWD showcases red-and-black cloth trim, black dashboard garnish with chrome highlights. Other features include rear air vents and three-zone climate control. Safety features of this model feature blind-spot monitoring, high-beam assist, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control with stop/go, rear cross-traffic alert and autonomous emergency braking, rear-view camera and parking sensors.
Up a level, the Asaki adds nappa leather trim, heated seats – both in the front and outboard rear as standard. Rear-window sun blinds, a 10-speaker Bose audio system and a heated steering wheel round up the standards in the Asaki.
Safety features in the Asaki trim-level gain a 360-degree surround-view monitor, adaptive LED headlights and keyless entry.
The CX-8 is powered by a 2.2-litre four cylinder twin turbo diesel.
