I checked a few Mitsubishi websites and saw that the Lancer was excluded from the lineup. I’m just wondering if we will no longer get this once great car or sales will continue. Any ANSA insiders who can provide an update for us would be appreciated!

I believe that the problem was that this vehicle required premium fuel and that was a real downer for many.

Ok understood. I knew of the 1.5 and 1.6 requiring premium and the 2.0 okay for super.

Had a look last weekend at the CX-5, really nice at $313k. Only downside talking to my mechanic who works at SS is that the battery drains quickly due to all the electronics and I-start/stop. Replacement batteries are around $2300 available at Kamus. Yes, its not a standard battery, some kind of special battery for the I-start.
Vehicle felt solid and the interior styling was really nice.
Even had a look at the new A4, on special for $395k. Standard 2.0T Quattro, sports suspension and upgraded huge front brakes.

The 2.5 4wd which they no longer bring was $428k but that price under the new tax increase would have been past $500k. A hybrid Camry 2.5 was around $600k. So in 2018 brace for a Rav4 to be around $400k at least for the fully loaded 2.0 2wd.

I expect the BMW X1, Mercedes GLA and Audi Q3 to sell more from next year. ANSA probably counting their lucky stars about that CRV 1.5T and it would make sense for Massy to get the Xtrail 1.6T but getting that info from my sources in Massy Motors in Morvant is like asking the POTUS for nuclear launch codes.


The RAV 4 is $299 K ( 2.0 2 WD ).

The 2017 CX5 2.0 2wd was $304k but new stock is being sold around $315k. Wish it had the sunroof, electronic seats, power tailgate, bose and awd to name a few oh well.

New Vehicle Prices In Trinidad & Tobago

Postby agent007 » November 17th, 2017, 9:23 am

Honda CRV 1.5T:
Was $359k now $369k. The special introductory offer is almost at an end where the price will head to $379k. The AWD version is on its way and may carry a price of $399k.

I understand despite the price increase, all shipments are sold out and everything physically in the country mostly registered and licensed waiting for plates and delivery to customer!

People have money. They go raise it by 10k again and all will be sold out before they even reach.

The new CX5s don't have Bose? The last version came in two trims and both had Bose IIRC.
Know someone who got one of the last of the old stock CX5s in August for $287k - 2WD version but it had a Bose system.

Seven year loans and 100% financing from ansa in one makes it appealing.. Till the novelty wears off and they work out the math.

Hi dizzy, unfortunately the new 2nd gen 2017 cx5 doesn’t come with the Bose in the base trim. It’s pretty basic actually but at the $304k price the overall package was still ok when compared to a base RAV4 and Xtrail.

Boxy, I understand ANSA In One package also includes free servicing and comprehensive insurance. So basically all you doing is driving and putting fuel. The rest you leave to ANSA. That monthly installment might be the killer lol.

The lower trim in the last CX5 was pretty loaded - 9 speaker Bose setup, traction control. 7 airbags, reverse camera, toggle control for audio in the centre, Ipad type screen for audio/entertainment, ebrake handbrake and push start (not really mindblowing though). However they were quoting $325k for that lower trim version in 2015 and only dropped to the <$300k price range when they knew the newer model was imminent.

Only missing or disappointing elements were the lighting system (the Mazda factory halogens are pretty poor at night), the 17" alloy rims which aren't all that particularly impressive and there was no AWD. But I mean the average Trini driver better off with traction control than AWD (I assume).

IMO SS would have a tough time selling the CX5 locally. It’s 2.0 engine has a tax disadvantage against the small displacement turbos found in the Tucson, CRV and Kuga. To get a proper fully loaded CX5 you would need to get the 2.5 model and sadly that is now history because hardly anyone will pay more than half mil for a compact crossover from Mazda. So you really have to be a fan of Mazda and SS to spend $304-$313k thereabouts for the current only model offered which is a base model. Take a look at the Kuga for example, such an unloved gem locally that deserves more attention. For $300k you getting a fully equipped vehicle with awd and that Ford Sync 3 system with smart phone integration is a winner! I think you can get a Kia Sportage GT Line for $296k which is not bad at all and then the CRV “tunnup” the whole spectrum. The Honda is bigger, more powerful, safer and has more features than the previous model for less $$$ plus Honda has a strong name for reputation and resale value locally so things looking a bit interesting in the market going forward.

Ford Kuga a gem? International reviews don’t really agree ... UK reviewers were mostly uninspired and put that together with poor resale, lower than average quality and questionable reliability.

I will see what I can find out!

Sales person said they sold out till Jan, and they have two more models coming in by next year March. So far is the fully loaded 2 wheel drive version. Next year there will be a basic fabric and a fully loaded 4 wheel drive.
My father is considering purchasing the 4 wheel fully loaded next year. He was quoted 389k.

A question on the new car topic.... a little unorthodox

When choosing a new car what is more important for you as a buyer. Is it the exterior looks, features and interior quality or the engine and performance specs.

Personally I find the WRX for example lacking in exterior styling, interior finish and features but it has a well performing turbocharged engine with AWD.

On the other hand you can get a BMW 316i with a lovely interior and good looking exterior but a weak power train.

I mean with the traffic nowadays you cant really drive that fast, might as well spend that time in a nice interior.

Thoughts???

I disagree with you all on the Ford Kuga/Escape. If some of you all consider that to be ugly then what are your thoughts on the RAV4, Outlander and Sportage?

Gladiator, some people prefer a badge to make a statement and some people prefer more features for the same price. The BMW 318i is the newer version to the 316i. A 1.5 DOHC 12V 3-cylinder turbo engine replaces the previous 1.6 DOHC 16V 4-cylinder turbo. The HP and torque output remains the same. You can get a starter 318i right now for $390k and if you want the MSport kit which upgrades the wheels to 18”, more aggressively flaired bumpers, sports steering wheel, front LED lights and a Harmon Kardon sound system for $450k. I find the interior space of a 3 series to be pretty small and I am not impressed with the equipment listing for the price nor the quality of materials used but at the end of the day, some or most will label it as a premium entry level German sports sedan far above any midsize jap or Korean car.

I would much rather drive a fully loaded Mazda 6 2.5 for $347k (last known price) or a Kia Optima 2.0 ($287k) or a Sonata 2.4 ($400k?) or a Fusion Titanium 1.5T Turbo ($365k?), Accord 2.0 ($379k) and Altima 2.5 (around $400k). Right now the 2018 Passat 1.8T fully loaded is $385k and the equipment listing will blow your mind for that price. The trunk space, interior volume and general equipment listing for the price of all those midsize sedans above is superior to a 3 series and most are better in power/performance or similar.

$390k can Land you a brand new CRV turbo with cash to spare for insurance etc and SUVs/Crossovers are the crave these days so that’s not a bad deal either but like I said, many would never be caught dead in a Nissan or Hyundai or Kia or some other mainstream bargain basement brand. They would much rather impress at the school reunion or family get together with a brand new shiny cramped basic BMW! Notice I haven’t talked about resale value or reliability either 2 areas BMW cannot hold a candle against Toyota, Nissan or Honda etc and one more thing, the argument of crash safety wouldn’t count because all those midsizers I mentioned got impressive results (some are even top safety picks!).

Depends on the individual. If performance is not the main attraction point then yeah exterior and interior looks and features.

If you enjoy driving though then get something that is fun to drive maybe even at the expense of other things.
