Mazda presented to the audience the successor to the current 2018 Mazda CX-8, which now looks even more modern and aggressive. Mazda has decided to change its model to a personal description, and in turn significantly improves driving characteristics and comfort. The Mazda decided to radically restyles and improve its popular model to stay at the top of its range in the class.
2018 Mazda CX-8 – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
To begin with, the design has been altered almost completely. The radiator mask is more pronounced and has a chrome-plated batten on the underside. The sides of the 2018 Mazda CX-8 are now monolithic, without emphasized lines. In our opinion, the car is much more elegant and mature. Much of the bodywork changes have been made to improve aerodynamics and reduce noise. We also enjoyed high quality finishing. The experience of quality is at the level of the larger Mazda models and can be said to be one of the best in general.
When it comes to the construction of a car, Mazda praised it increased torsional stiffness by 15.5%. This is largely achieved by the use of an ultra-high-strength steel in the production of A and B pillars. The aerodynamics of the vehicle have also been enhanced, and the noise due to running air has decreased, and security systems assistance include, among other things, the Mazda Radar Adaptive Cruise Control and the technology for the recognition of traffic signs.
The first impressions are usually crucial in shaping an opinion on a particular model. In this case, the key words are quality, precision and, above all, a great deal of attention paid by the constructors to the end user.
The cabin is almost completely redesigned, and factory representatives say that the goal was to increase functionality and convenience. Now the dashboard is dominated by horizontal lines with elegant air vents. The front and rear seats are anatomically completely designed to make the body more enjoyable during long journeys, while offering good side support. The rear bench now has the backrests to adjust the angle, and passengers in the rear have received ventilation openings on the central tunnel.
The new and colorful seven-inch touchscreen in LCD technology. The most expensive version of the “hed-ap” display is more complex and displays the image on the windshield, which now has the function of defrosting the wiper. The first thing we noticed during driving trips is that the car is significantly muted, especially in the rear seats. We later learned that the reduction of noise and vibration was one of the most important tasks during reutilization.
Special absorbent materials were used, even the side glasses were multilayered, laminated. For the same reason, the chassis is “stiffened” by about 15 percent, and elements of suspension are almost completely altered. Unlike most of the international presentations of new models where only some of the versions are available, 2018 Mazda CX-8 has prepared all possible combinations of engines, gearboxes, drives and equipment for the press.
