But honestly that price still isn't justifiable especially with that engine displacement. Expected at least a 2.something.
Rav4 has all that except the touchscreen niceness, bose system and front parking sensors. :?
And well the 60/40 seat but having 9 airbags sounds better to me.

True :lol:

And cinco is correct. Although for a 2.4 motor I find it's a little underpowered. It's a nice lil thing though. Have the same motor in our 2010 camry (and that car is a bore!)

Anyway, hope the cx5 won't be a let down Stephon.. :D

I have to consider the TOTAL value proposition (plus consult with the comptroller of accounts **cough cough wife cough**) and 380-440k for a small mazda crossover is too much vs a larger rav4 with more usuable torque for load and hill climbing. Infact the question about resale value, parts and service is of paramount importance in concluding the final decision. The way I also see it, lets say I am buying that lcd tv or the elliptical trainer from a popular dept store, could the cx5 still carry those boxes the way a rav4 can? I am guessing no. The mazda would handle much better and has more features but try telling a woman who does financial audits for a living that..

Yeah it has the skyactiv engine in the cx-5 (from what I saw at mazdamania Sunday).

I was told they weren't planning to bring in any skyactiv mazda 3's, those are the 2l engine models and we have no 2l in the new model of Mazda 3's.

Maybe they will change their mind later on.

sorry oh goshhhh!!!! I just real happy to get my keys, whenever that may be, I was told next month!

Kinda lol'd when I found out that there are only two in the country and another two would be arriving next month though :lol:


they're lying... I saw at least 4 at the port. Unless they're keeping one each at the POS and Sando showrooms, and selling off the other two :?

Oh btw, the powers that be can update the Nissan list... through a colleague at work who's shopping, I've been reliably informed that the new March (1.2 only) is 133K, and the new Tiida replacement, the Versa (1.5 only), is priced at 155K. In the case of the latter, never did I think I'd see the day when a local price mimics that of the global standard whereby a new model is usually offered at the same price point of the old one. IF only the other stealerships will follow suit and stop raping the motoring public

for 133k i expect dual airbags, abs brakes, full power features and at least a 1.5 engine. I rather take that money and buy a roro fielder 1.8 loaded and have more car, more resale value than that half-a-car nonsense nm sellin

QFT.
Doh buy it cuz is a mazda. Buy it cuz is good value. Just got my Jetta. You think i will buy eveything VW from now on? Hells naw. Not unless it's the best package at a particular price bracket. In this instance however I'd say get the tiguan over the CX-5 AT THAT PRICE. Or at least test drive d ting before yuh buy.

after you feel the thrust of clocking 100kmph in less than 8 seconds from standstill effectively blowing the doors off a mazda cx7 2.3t and subaru forester 2.5t, you soon realize the tiguan is a bargain considering the safety and security elements. the cx5 skyactive is fast compared to say the crv and asx and qashqai etc...but the power of the tiguan is amazing especially when you need passing power on tap versus our lesser n/a 4-cylinder friends who require a kick-down and 5500-6000rpms worth to pass a silly compact keeping back traffic on the right lane..the more you keep those 4 pots on the boil, skyactiv or not you will eat your mpg's up.

A4 prices went up quite a bit with the new model. I think it's more just price matching to the other cars in the class, i.e. C-class and 3-series.
No base models available yet, but mid and high levels around. From top model the audio, sunroof and something else were dropped and the price went up to 461k(previously 420k). Mid level is now 440k. Base pricing not available yet but judging by the other two I'd say around 400k...big jump from 340k IF the new base models are that high...so I think it's really just a case of "BMW asking 450+k for a base 3-series so lewwe do the same!"
Changes are facelift, 8-sp tranny instead of CVT, 170hp vs 160hp, and some other little stuff.

$150k for a Tiida, $160k for a Swift/Yaris, $185k for a Lancer?

Maybe I am in a different pay bracket, but spending that much money on those cars at those prices evades logic. I can understand exotic cars and exotic prices, but not those...

Rarely has the thought of buying a new car been seriously considered. But when, the then new, Suzuki Swift Sport came out in (I think) 2006 for $135k-ish, I seriously considered it.

I guess the demand is there for those prices to make sense to people.
