The bronze because every elantra I see is either silver, white or blue. The bronze would stand out more imo.

I know the benefit of disc brakes but drums at d back ain't antiquated per se. What I was heading to was that you can find some vehicles right here in Trinidad in a certain price bracket with all wheel discs but no ABS. That to me is worse than having drums at the back.

i remember seeing kia spectra's and the older kia cerato's with all wheel disc brakes but the new more powerful versions have rear drums. Imagine the 1.8 corolla is the usdm coming with rear drums and even a basic 1.5 corolla in tnt have 4-wheel disc. Having rear drums does not mean less effective stopping power. The main concern is the front rotor, car men just like the uniformity of having rotors in the back which screams (powerful car) and bragging rights vs shorter stopping distances.

if i buy a car wit hrear drums, then that is extra expense fo rme... i go now have to go buy them fake rotor plates to bolt on over it, so really its a cost savings for me :)

but seriosuly, i may dex teh car, do spirited maracas runs ect, my drivign style is aggressive so heat disapation is important to me

careful with dex and the elantra, I don't think you wanna do that until the warranty is over and until the stock tyres are ready to be replaced. The stock tyres are tuned for comfort and fuel economy, not acceleration or handling. Congrats on the purchase though. It's actually a mini luxury car with style.

I'm excited for it but I'm still waiting on a price, working with 315k. Anything higher, southern sales could suck an egg, the fully loaded Tucson is 315k after all.

That new Tiida is ugly and the CX5 is even uglier. Crossovers are a total waste of time. Just buy a station wagon and done, you get the same practicality with better fuel economy.

Mazda vehicles are the best designed vehicles in Trinidad and Tobago though.

i could see the CX5 making sense for us locally since they do not bring the Mazda3 hatch
as it is essentially the same thing
it is even offered with a stick altho im sure we wont get any of those

Trinis could be very disingenuous.

They dont like hatchbacks but put it on a higher suspension and call it SUV with TT$100,000 more in price, they love it.

Southern Sales officially gone mad, 380k 2wd and 440k awd for the CX5, a 2.0NA engine costing more than the 2.3 turbo CX7 *scratches head*

I now thinking about the CX5 price properly, are they mad?

Q5
$465k 2.0T

X1
$465k 2.0TD

CRV
$410k 2.0NA

CX7
$395k 2.3T

Forester
$385k 2.5T

VW Tiguan
$401k 2.0T

I'm still going to give the CX5 a try and a test run though, I'm really liking the style of Mazdas lately.
