Mazda is increasingly premium in its direction, which makes it a great fit for the returning Premium Auto Car Expo (PACE) 2019, co-sponsored by Michelin and TyrePlus. The premium vehicle-focused sales expo takes place this year at the Setia City Convention Centre from November 2-3, and the Japanese brand will be there amongst the upmarket establishment.

The automaker from Hiroshima, Japan will be represented at PACE 2019 by the CX-5 Turbo, CX-8 and CX-9 SUVs which drive the brand’s premium aspirations. Clothed in the brand’s unique design language inside and out, the SUV trio gets G-Vectoring Control (GVC Plus on the CX-5) as well as the full suite of active safety and driver aids. Both the CX-5 Turbo and seven-seater CX-9 are powered by a 2.5 litre Skyactiv-G turbo petrol producing 228 hp and 420 Nm of torque.

Meanwhile, the CX-8 for our market gets a choice of the 2.5 litre Skyactiv-G petrol engine with 192 hp and 258 Nm of torque, or the 2.2 litre Skyactiv-D turbodiesel with 188 hp and 450 Nm of torque. For those keen to sample the vehicles first-hand, the CX-5 2.5 Turbo, CX-9 and Mazda 3 2.0 will be available for test drives. Exclusive Mazda merchandise will also be available on site during PACE 2019.

Mazda is just one of the prestigious brands at the event, including Audi, BMW, Bufori, Harley-Davidson, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Renault, Subaru, Volkswagen and Volvo.
