The high grade Asaki adds even more equipment, including Mazda’s new 360° View Monitor, front parking sensors, Adaptive LED Headlamps (ALH) and advanced keyless entry. 

A number of designed-in, passive safety features further strengthen Brand-New Mazda CX-8 Diesel’s safety, including a high-strength SKYACTIV-Body, which effectively absorbs and disperses impact forces from the front, sides and rear to suppress cabin deformation in the event of an accident.

Brand-New Mazda CX-8 includes six airbags, including curtain airbags that extend protection to the third row.

The five star ANCAP rating applies to all variants of the Brand-New Mazda CX-8, including entry grade Sport and the range-topping Asaki.
