As usual Trinis being taken for a ride we are a gullible bunchdrchaos wrote:Its also very interesting that the Civic starts at 20.5k in the US and the Accord starts at 23.8 K so a 3.3K USD difference.
Same engine size ... but here in T&T its a 17.64K USD difference?

Classic always brought in 3 accords: fabric, leather and leather V6 for 315k, 379k and 550-600k thereabouts for the last generation.
If they were interested in passing the tax savings to the customer, a fully equipped 1.5T should not cost more than 320k but they looking at previous models in terms of equipment and power. That said, the 1.5T is far superior to the 2.0 R20 engine and even the K24 which we never got for an Accord. So this new turbo motor is probably on par if not a better performer than the 3.0 sohc 24v vtec v6 found in the 03-07 model so they will probably try that sales pitch angle to justify the price.
A Kia Optima can be purchased now for as little as 325k and that’s a 2.0. Of course how dare I compare Korean junk to Jap engineering right? Well the Mazda 6 2.0 can be had for less than 340k with leather and Bose and we all know, that 6 is truly a drivers car.
Since Classic pushes Honda locally as a near premium brand, expect them to sell well within the ANSA group and the 1 and 2 % circle. For 20k less, might as well buy a CRV.

A base Civic costs less than a base Mazda 3 according to Edmunds so I dont get what the local dealers are on about.
Honda's styling right now is way off Mazda has the interiors down pat and the looks exteriors spot on imho which again looks are subjective.

No one will ever want an instance where the Police or Licensing Officers stop you to give you a ticket if you have your family/friends etc occupying the third row seat.
Stefan, would you do us a favor and check your CCO to determine if this is true?
