Australian 2023 Mazda CX-8 Pricing Confirmed

The updated range starts from $42,060 excluding on roads.

Mazda has confirmed pricing for the new 2023 Mazda CX-8 range, which is launching in Australia in March 2023. The large SUV will be starting from $42,060 excluding on-roads and dealer delivery, and offered with 2 engines and 6 trim levels.

The pricing is an increase of up to $1550 compared to the outgoing model, but brings an updated design, upgraded technology on the inside, and new features on multiple trims.

All models are now equipped with a 10.25-inch infotainment display running Mazda’s Connect software, and also brings wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Also standard is the 7.0-inch digital cluster, and USB-C ports for the front-row.

Previously, the infotainment and cluster digital displays were limited to the Asaki and Asaki LE models.

Mazda has also called out the addition of the ability to remotely control the windows via the key fob. A feature which has been present in many other brands for many years. That said, it’s still a welcomed feature.

For AWD models, ‘Mi-Drive’ will allow owners to switch between Normal and Off-Road modes, but no Sport mode is available. Sport mode is curiously reserved for only the petrol FWD models.

The two engines available are limited to their respective drivetrains. Front-wheel drive options use a petrol 2.5-litre non-turbo four-cylinder engine producing 140kW/252Nm, and a six-speed auto.

If you’re wanting an all-wheel drive model, you’ll be getting a diesel 2.2-litre turbo four-cylinder engine making 140kW/450Nm through a six-speed auto.
