Mazda CX-8

The Mazda CX-8 is a stretched version of the CX-5 with a third seating row able to accommodate two kids. 

Originally launched as a diesel-only proposition to sit alongside the larger, petrol-only CX-9, a petrol Mazda CX-8 was nevertheless added later in its life cycle. 

While the design and proportions polarise, the Mazda CX-8's interior is pretty well thought out and, in premium grades, beautifully finished with premium materials. It's a bit of an underrated car that is often overlooked against its more popular siblings/bookends.
