If it is true what is headlined in this Kiwi's review. We have reason to be excited.

"More than 5, less than 9, but close to 6 - the new Mazda CX-8"

No kidding?!

Can see from youtube. Acceptable but not very big as Vellfire etc. Designed for kids.

The diesel version is rumoured to be the 6 seat version and will carry a pricetag of more than RM200k.

Not sure what's the rationale for one of these.

Too much premium for that price. Its a Mazda. Not sure how bermaz categories themselves.
Since we still lacking some so called new features of new facelift vs what US market are getting in the model.

Better buy 3 Aruz.

Willing buyer willing seller mah, 200k can also only buy half of a 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque or Half of a Lexus RX300 or half of a BMW X5.....

Anyway I would think this CX8 petrol version since no AWD and can be stripped down (fabric seats and what not) by BERMAZ have a chance of sub 200k pricing

Ya from the pricing of existing CX-5 (already almost Sorento pricing) my guess is that the CX-8 must add something like at least 30k for the extra 2 seats. Specs for specs, meaning if a high spec CX-5 petrol 2.5 2WD of RM160k, the CX-8 would at least be 190k. Still kinda ok as Sorento top spec is about RM178k ish. Many ppl still prefer Jap than Korean cars.

For me I just went straight and bought myself a Sorento FL 2.2D AWD few mths ago.

If my guess is right, which would mean the CX-8 2.2D AWD would cost at least RM174k + 30k = 205k still below the RM220k many predicted. Crucially, all CX-8 has no 3rd A/C vents and no MRCC sad.gif

Good to know, how is the workmanship at inokom kulim? (the same place CX 5 and soon CX8 will be CKD- assembled), I have never own any car roll out from that plant but would like to think they should be good since it is also where BMW , Mini and Land Rover AFAIK also make the 3 and the 5 , x1 , x3 , countryman and defender.

Some korean cars also assembled there.

Workmanship wise (specifically on the cx5), i guess not too bad since very established assembly operations and very experienced. Some more, seems like this assembly site will be the regional assembly hub specifically for cx5 model only.

And among all the brands being assembled, as a singular car brand operations itself, mazda (supposedly) has the largest stake in the assembly plant at 29%. So, by logic, mazda malaysia would pay quite a lot of attention to their products made there.

Another 15% owned by hyundai group korea and the remaining majority slice belongs to sime darby.

As a recent mazda owner myself (not cx5 though), tried out the new cx5 a bit, i can the plant didn't cheap out the product.

My Sorento is quoted as CKD, but many told us it's actually SKD only very few parts were fitted here in Kulim. So the quality is quite solid, very much like European car not the squeeky Jap cars.

Yeah many Hyundai but not Kia. The latter is done at Naza Auto Mfg (NAM) @GURUN, Kedah whom I must say has been disappointing as far as my Peugeot 408 SKD (also done at NAM) is concern.

Perhaps.it is time I get my self one that roll out from Inokom for a much needed change....BMW , MIni, Mazda or Hyundai?!
