How the Mazda CX-8 Embodies Japanese Hospitality


Omotenashi. It’s known the world over as “Japanese hospitality,” but its literal translation gives a much deeper meaning: “Omote” means public face while “Nashi” means nothing. Combining them means every service is from the bottom of the heart—honest and genuine—the very same ideas that describe the Mazda CX-8.

Starting with a form that is unrestrained, yet elegant, the CX-8 welcomes its occupants with styling that would continue to excite even after many years. Its low and bold front combines elegance, bringing depth and maturity to Mazda’s KODO design.


Inside, it focuses on ease of use as a three-row SUV. It centers on the comfort of each and every passenger. This starts with careful consideration in choosing interior color and material. The black and brown cabin uses soft-touch plastics, genuine wood trim, and Nappa leather seats—things typically absent in SUVs of this price range. Then, the seats can be folded down in a variety of arrangements to accommodate items of different sizes. Consideration was even done to improve quietness. Carrying a conversation is possible between the first and third rows thanks to the reduction in the gap between the roof molding and roof spoiler as well as application of sound absorbing material at the base of the D-pillars. The impressive sound insulation also allows the occupants to revel in the standard 10-speaker Bose sound system.

Representing a new option for people who enjoy outings with family and friends, but don’t want to sacrifice driving performance, the CX-8 comes with the 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G engine making 190 horsepower and 252 Nm of torque. And with Mazda’s unique G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) technology on board, the CX-8 is a car that drivers and passengers alike will enjoy both around town and on long drives.



Finally, with Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE, the CX-8 supports safety and peace of mind—essential ingredients for a truly enjoyable driving experience. The i-ACTIVSENSE helps prevent accidents from happening such as automatically adjusting and maintaining a safe distance from the car in front, or warning the driver of danger of collision when changing lanes or upfront. The i-ACTIVSENSE technology also includes pre-crash safety technology to reduce the risk of an accident. 

Sophisticated design, effortless performance, and comfort for everyone on board—the Mazda CX-8 is truly Japanese hospitality at its finest. It’s a three-row SUV where luxury and technology come together that makes any journey, even being stuck in Manila traffic, a luxurious experience for everyone on board.
