Bermaz Motor Sdn Bhd has officially announced the official prices for their all-new 2019 Mazda CX-8 here in Malaysia. Opened for booking earlier last October, the pricing for the seven-seater full-size SUV starts from RM176,000 to RM214,000 (basic selling price excluding insurance).
The OTR prices (On-The-Road) excluding insurance totals between RM179,960.40 to RM217,722.80 where four variants are currently on offer. They are the 2.5G 2WD MID, 2.5G 2WD MID Plus, 2.5G 2WD High, and the range-topper, the 2.2D 4WD High (diesel).
The new Mazda CX-8 comes with two engine configurations; the base SKYACTIV-G 2.5L 2WD variant (192hp and 258Nm torque) and the 2.2L SKYACTIV-D Engine AWD (188hp and 450Nm of torque) as the range-topper. These powertrains are fitted to a six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission with manual shift mode as well as the Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus).
During its official roll-out, we had the opportunity to test out the second model in the range, which is the Mazda CX-8 2.5G MID Plus. You can check out our full first-drive review in the link below but in short, the new Mazda CX-8 packs quite a punch in terms of comfortable power delivery with high-levels of cabin comfort, especially with those second-row captain seats.
