After rolling out the all-new 2019 Mazda CX-8 at Mazda Malaysia’s manufacturing plant in Kulim, Bermaz Motors have finally released the confirmed pricing of their new locally assembled SUV.

How much is it?

As announced earlier, the 2019 CX-8 is available in 4 variants – 2.5L 2WD MID, 2.5L 2WD MID Plus, 2.5L 2WD High and 2.2D AWD High priced from RM 179,960 to RM 217,722.

This pricing in line with Executive Chairman of Bermaz Motor, Dato' Sri Ben Yeoh’s statement that the CX-8 will be priced 15 to 20% more than a CX-5 (spec-for-spec).

The CX-8 rides on the same platform as the CX-9 with a wheelbase of 2,930 mm. The extended wheelbase over the CX-5 allows for a third-row seating configuration.

The CX-8 is offered with 2 engine options – a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder SkyActiv-G petrol and a 2.2-litre SkyActiv-D turbodiesel. Both are paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
