On paper, although the CX-8 slots between the CX-5 and CX-9, it is actually a CX-9 underneath. The CX-8 is not a CX-5 with third-row seats as it shares the same wheelbase as the CX-9.

There are four variants to choose from and only the entry-level 2.5L 2WD MID variant is available as a 7-seater (2-3-2 layout). The rest are strictly 6-seaters with a 2-2-2 seating configuration.

Unlike the MY19 CX-5, the CX-8 does not come with the 2.5-litre turbo option. Instead, it is available with either a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder SkyActiv-G petrol or 2.2-litre SkyActiv-D turbodiesel mill.

The Mazda CX-8 also does not come with the new instrument cluster with a central 7.0-inch TFT LCD multi-info display like the Mazda CX-5. It gets a smaller 4.3-inch item instead.

Bermaz Motor is now accepting orders for the new Mazda CX-8 however pricing will be announced at a later date. Executive Chairman of Bermaz Motor, Dato' Sri Ben Yeoh hinted that thanks to local assembly operations, the Mazda CX-8 is expected to be priced 15 to 20% more than a Mazda CX-5.
