ALL-NEW STYLING AND HEIGHTENED TECHNOLOGY FOR REVITALISED MAZDA CX-8
One of Australia’s favourite large SUVs – the Mazda CX-8 – has received a comprehensive styling update and a suite of new technological features.
An impactful expression of Mazda’s lauded Kodo design language, key exterior changes for the updated Mazda CX-8 include a block mesh pattern grille and grille surround, restyled front and rear bumpers, a new headlight and taillight design and a sleeker rear tailgate that compliments the SUV’s contemporary form.
Other visual upgrades include a series of new-to-Mazda CX-8 wheel designs and Mazda’s latest body colour, Rhodium White, which becomes the third Takuminuri colour in the range and joins a now eight-strong paint palette.
nside the three-row SUV, Mazda’s vibrant 10.25-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system now comes standard across the range, as does wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
More new standard technology added to the line-up includes a razor-sharp 7.0-inch digital instrument display, USB-C ports for front-row occupants and a remote window control system activated via the key fob.
Mazda’s intelligent Drive Select or ‘Mi Drive’, which lets the driver switch between Normal, Sport and Off-Road modes, will be a standard feature for AWD models.
Thanks to exhaustive research, testing and development, the updated Mazda CX-8 now gains an even greater reduction in noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) inside the cabin, equating to a quieter, smoother ride for the whole family.
Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi, said the updated CX-8’s myriad new features and redesigned appearance would ensure it stayed at the top of buyers’ wish lists.
“The Australian consumer has embraced Mazda CX-8 – its combination of elegance and practicality makes it a compelling package that’s hard to ignore.
“With this latest update, Mazda CX-8 has taken the game to another level, with both styling and technology that will ensure it’s a hit with Aussie buyers for years to come.
