    They wanted the extra space

    The size of the CX8 is one of the fastest selling sectors in Japan. Preorders were 10X what Mazda had predicted.

    My thinking is may take sales from CX-9 as CX-5 already comes with a diesel

    If anything the sleeker design of the 8 may be a tipping point.

    New guy here cross shopping CX-5 Signature and CX-9 Signature. Is the USA getting the CX-8? If so I will be tapping the breaks. The 9 feels and looks a little too bulky for me and the 5 feels a little too compact at times. The 8 could be perfect. Looks like its a home run in the mother land.

    CX-8 will not be coming to the US. It was developed primarily for countries with strict sizing laws, like Japan. It's funny, the CX-9 is built in Japan but isn't allowed to be sold there.

    The CX5 needs a few more inches in front seat elbow room and the CX8 appears just right. I hope it comes to the US but, doubt it. Ed
