Hiroshima, Japan - Mazda Motor Corporation has revealed a sneak peek of its upcoming crossover SUV, Mazda CX-8.

The automaker's first new-generation model in Japan to feature three rows of seating is scheduled to go on sale later in 2018.

Mazda reckons the new-generation model, the CX-8, will serve as the flagship of the brand's SUV line-up in Japan.

"It's a new kind of crossover SUV for people who both appreciate quality and need to seat more than five," says Mazda. "It has the looks, performance and high-end feel customers expect from a Mazda, yet even adults can sit comfortably in the third row." 

Mazda reckons its designers have added a new dimension of maturity to the KODO-Soul of Motion design theme, aiming for "an enduring edgy look that will continue to excite customers for many years to come".

The automaker says: "As the flagship SUV in the Japanese market, the focus was on creating a look of class and quality, and every interior part was chosen in careful consideration of color and material."
