    Design 

    Like all current-generation Mazda cars, the Mazda CX-8 Malaysia also bears a great resemblance of modern luxury thanks to the Kodo Design Language. The sharp lines are complemented with smaller grilles so it is not an overwhelming effect. Instead of sporty like the CX-5, the Mazda CX-8 Malaysia has a more sophisticated effect.

    Dimension 

    The Mazda CX-8 Malaysia measures in at 4,900 x 1,840 x 1,730 x 2,930 mm in length, width, height, and wheelbase.

    Dashboard 

    Like the exterior, the Mazda CX-8 Malaysia has a sophisticated interior with tasteful wood trimmings and classic upholstery colours. As expected with Mazda, the Mazda CX-8's dashboard is well put together with no signs of rattling.

    Instrument Cluster 

    Instead of the sportier LED screen in its Mazda sibling, the Mazda CX-8 Malaysia has a very classic back-lit cluster to match the classic interior ambience.

    Space and Practicality 

    Though the Mazda CX-8 Malaysia is a large car, the need to distribute space between 3 rows of seats has greatly diminished legroom for the third row. But cubby spaces are well distributed, especially the 2.5-litre 2WD High and 2.2-litre AWD Diesel variant, as the second-row seats are separated by a large centre console that matches the one between the driver and passenger seat.

    Boot 

    Although legroom is not great for the third-row passengers, the Mazda CX-8 Malaysia still boasts a rather large boot space that would fit most items though not a 28-inch luggage bag.

    Comfort Features 

    Depending on which variant, the Mazda CX-8 Malaysia either offers 7 seats or 6 seats. The base 2WD Mid has a bench-type second row that allows for more passengers, while the Mid Plus gets captain seats that allow easier ingress and egress for the third-row seats. The top-spec 2.5-litre 2WD High and 2.2-litre AWD diesel's second-row seats are separated by a centre console allowing for more comfortable seating and storage space. The Mid and Mid Plus variants get fabric trim seats while the High and AWD diesel is wrapped in smooth leather upholstery while all variants get the comforts that GVC has to offer.

    With the turbodiesel and 450 Nm on tap, the Mazda CX-8 is a sprightly car to drive. A tap on the throttle will have the car shoving forward with a passion. Both engines of the Mazda CX-8 Malaysia are tuned to give the smoothest acceleration but still can offer the now popular Mazda driving experience.

    Steering and Handling 

    The Mazda CX-8 still has a responsive and sharp steering feel. Despite the length of the car, the Mazda CX-8 is still a corner-happy SUV much like its smaller CX-5 sibling.
