And then Mazdomain authority confirmed that the CX-8 would most definitely not be exported from Japan. As the CX-4 was a China-oriented Model, the CX-8 would be geared towards a Japanese market for which the CX-9 is just too big. But then we heard the Mazdomain authority CX-8 might be exported from Japan, but only to lớn nước Australia.

And now, with official imagery, it’s not difficult to lớn underst& why Mazdomain authority USA has no need for the CX-8. It looks almost exactly like a CX-9 with six fewer inches of length, five sầu fewer inches of width, & a marginally lower roofline.

Americans vày not need a smaller Mazdomain authority CX-9.

There’s reason lớn believe sầu Mazdomain authority could use more utility vehicles in North America. Aye, couldn’t every automaker?

Unfortunately, the two lakiểm tra Mazda utility vehicles — the CX-4 and now CX-8 — aren’t destined for North America. Much as Mazdomain authority would lượt thích to lớn get the swoopier CX-5 that Mazda Đài Loan Trung Quốc markets as the CX-4 on that side of the Pacific, it’s not khổng lồ be.
