Mazda Motor Corporation has unveiled the exterior of its upcoming six to seven crossover SUV, Mazda CX-8. The company’s first new-generation model to feature three rows of seating is scheduled to go on sale in Japan before the end of the year.
Brian Joss – Mazda’s new-generation model, the CX-8 will serve as the flagship of the brand’s SUV lineup. It’s a new kind of crossover SUV for people who both appreciate quality and need to seat more than five. It has the looks, performance and high-end feel customers expect from a Mazda, yet even adults can sit comfortably in the third row. Mazda designers worked to add a new dimension of maturity to the KODO-Soul of Motion design theme for an enduring edgy look that will continue to excite customers for many years to come. As the flagship SUV in the market, the focus was on creating a look of class and quality, and every interior part was chosen in careful consideration of color and material.
Aiming to become a brand with which customers feel a strong emotional connection, Mazda will continue advancing its lineup to offer all customers both driving pleasure and outstanding environmental and safety performance.
The New flagship Mazda CX-8 Crossover SUV will be available in Japan this year. Global roll-out has not been confirmed.
