Mazda has officially welcomed the Brand-New Mazda CX-8 Diesel into it’s now nine-strong family of award-winning vehicles, with the SUV on sale from July 1 2018. Sitting between the Mazda CX-5 and the Mazda CX-9 on the sizing scale, the middle kid is a value-packed seven-seat option, ideal for growing families looking to pair their need for fuel efficiency, space and safety, with their desire for style and quality. Equipped with the advanced 2.2L SKYACTIV-D twin-turbo diesel engine, the Brand-New Mazda CX-8 Diesel gives a maximum of 140kW of power at 4,500rpm and a huge 450Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. Incorporating the latest SKYACTIV technologies, the diesel-only SUV has an impressively high combustion ratio of 14.5:1, achieved thanks to a new variable geometry turbocharger, ultra-high response Piezo injectors and a stepped egg-profile combustion chamber. The many SKYACTIV technologies at play help Brand-New Mazda CX-8 Diesel to achieve best-in-class combined fuel consumption of 5.7L/100km for the Sport FWD variant, and 6.0L/100km for the Sport and Asaki AWD variants.
