    Caradvice - 2018 Mazda CX-8 Pricing Revealed With Some Specification Information

    Carsguide - Mazda CX-8 2018 pricing confirmed

    Motoring - Mazda CX-8 to undercut Toyota Kluger (Highlander)

    • Base variant Sport FWD guise - AUD $42490 before on-road costs
    • Base/Mid variant Sport AWD guise - AUD $46490 before on-road costs
    • Top variant Asaki AWD guise - AUD $61490 before on-road costs


    Looks like it needs a variant between Sport AWD and Asaki AWD to bridge the large price gulf

    Interesting, unless there are package options that help in that regard.

    We don't get package options here anymore. The last time was only safety pack and that was around 3 years which added BSM, RCTA, auto rear-vision mirror dimming and SCBS.

    Claimed 0-100km/h (0-62mph):

    • CX-8 Sport FWD - 9.2 seconds for 1840kg (4056lbs) vehicle with 140KW (188HP) / 450NM (332FTLBS)
    • CX-8 Sport AWD - 9.6 seconds for 1957kg (4314lbs) vehicle with 140KW (188HP) / 450NM (332FTLBS)
    • CX-8 Asaki AWD - 9.6 seconds for 1957kg (4314lbs) vehicle with 140KW (188HP) / 450NM (332FTLBS)



    Note - this vehicle weighs 89-206kg (196-454lbs) more than the top spec Diesel CX-5.
