The cheapest new vehicle sold by the authorized dealer in this country belongs to the Toyota Agya 1.0 (65-66hp?) which is $115,000.

With 10% down, your loan amount is now $103,500. At 4.5% interest over 8 years, this would yield a monthly installment of $1,300. inclusive of admin fees embedded.

With a 40% TDSR, the above example means, anyone with a monthly salary of $3,300. can own a brand new car!

And I think it's safe to say, almost all employed people in this country make a gross monthly income which is above $3,300.

On the roro side of things, I think the Aqua (99hp) is probably one of the cheapest within the grey market. Let's say $80k tops for a loaded G model. At 20% down, 5.5% interest and 5 years to pay back, it yields a monthly installment of approx. $1,300. as well.

By the time the Agya's loan is paid off for, that vehicle is obviously 8 years old and might be worth $30k if you lucky.

By the time the Aqua is paid off for, it would be 9 years old and you also might get a $30k for it.

You get a bigger car, a faster car, a more feature packed car, an equally as fuel efficient or if not better car with less resale value loss.

Choice is clear.

In my opinion, I would not say outside. The side profile is inline with the hatch ... just a flat surface. Initially it was looking better than the hatch in pics but seeing it on the road , the previous side profile was better.

$550K for a bottom of the barrel spec Wrangler Sport. I wonder what would be HSM's after sales support be like though, in terms of parts, servicing and warranty? From what I've heard LSM will in no way offer any after sales support to units not sold by them (parts and definitely no service support). If you have a half a million to spend, is better you put out the extra $$$ and get a much better spec Sport from LSM, with full after service support and a much better warranty.


The Gladiator is beast though! That probably already sold.

Knowing Lifestyle and their overpricing the Gladiator can very well go for about $750K

I dunno if laws were altered but there was a time when the Central Bank would only allow vehicle loans for a max of 60 months ( 5 years) then lenders started pushing the terms longer to as much as 10 years and the CB stepped in and they settled at 7, 10 year loans would only appear briefly now and again. Btw nothing is wrong with taking a vehicle loan for a long period, it depends on what you're borrowing for, long term loans for a car to keep up appearances is as stupid as it gets, I'd happily take a long term loan for some trucks and heavy equipment

Makes sense. Attracts a lot less taxes being registered as a T.

The Sales Manager for Jeep at LSM is a car enthusiast. He is known in the motorsports community and He knows his vehicles. The team that sells Jeeps locally imo seem to be better than average when it comes to sales and product knowledge competency.

Jeep Caribbean is also committed to RHD markets such as ours. We will get a wide range of models and we will get the supply. LSM is also imo better than average (compared to my relationships with TTTL, Massy, ANSA and SS) so in terms of after sale support, I'm sure some customers will echo the same sentiments.

Lastly, let's be real here. We can thank TTTL for giving Jeep a chance. Look at pg 1 and see the prices of a Fortuner and Prado respectively. Also, in keeping with the body-on-frame argument, where is the Nissan Patrol and Mitsubishi Pajero? Simply not offered here anymore! The Chevrolet Trailblazer and Ford Everest doesn't even sell well either but they exist locally.

So what alternatives do customers really have if they want better than average offroading capability? The answer is Jeep and they fit snug and nice in our market. I don't care about Toyota's value proposition, I cannot justify a Prado at $1.1M when for half that price I can get a Jeep 4x4 and now that HSM importing them new then even better!

Cant say much for the Jeep Compass though. That's just another CUV but in this case, a fwd 1.4t vehicle. Not in my radar at all.

The LEGENDARY local folklore of Toyota resale value is why TTTL gets away with that crap.

What are your views on the Mazda CX-5 vs the Kinetic XC 40 Volvo. I know the Mazda is a 2 l engine vs the 1.5 T in the Volvo. Which would you recommend?

The Mazda is 350 k vs 410 k for the Volvo

You make it simple there Randolph!

It's a $54k difference between the 2. The 5 imo is more spacious inside and has a bigger trunk. I rather have a 2.0 4 vs a 1.5 3 even though the latter has a turbo. To me 3 cylinders are pathetic regardless of the power it makes.

Whatelse, that entry 40 when last I checked lacked the Harman Kardon premium audio system but you get BOSE in the 5.

Lastly in terms of resale value and reliability, the 5 would be much better than the 40.

Volvo's tank in value quite quickly and their reliability reputation not all that. So I would say Mazda all the way and it just looks better lol.

Let's be real here, in these tough times, $54k thereabouts is a lot of coin and thus the overal value proposition swings in Mazda's favor.

Agree. After driving Volvo’s a lot for the past couple years I’d be concerned about long term ownership. Also to Agent’s point you’d get more premium options on the CX (in general stay away from base cars).

Are any of the Japanese or Korean cars coming with fully adaptive cruise control? From what I can tell the Subaru has it in their EyeSight system. It’s certainly a feature I’m interested in.

Not for a very long time. Manufacturing for markets haven't even started.

The dmax it's based not not even forecasted to be sold for 2021 here.

Same for the new Triton, that's 'hopefully expected' to come here late 2021

Triniboy, I think Lexus vehicles like the RX will have that feature.

Feeldavibe, the 2021 BT-50 is expected here in Q1 or Q2 2021. When the D-Max touches down then its only a matter of time till Mazda sends their version.

Ted, I see the City prices range from 165 to 170k. It hovers around that area plus or minus a few thousand depending on the package deal offering. If you're interested in one, always make sure to negotiate.

Nick, I saw the 2020 Sportero/Triton commercial grade version already. Is it possible that DM already has inventory?

Quattro, you're assuming we may be getting that trim of the Sorento. Despite possibly qualifying for tax exemptions the category the vehicle falls under will see increased profits for SS as they will not pass that savings to the customer. Look at the Santa Fe 2.4 for $569k. SS could price the new Sorento hybrid for $520k when they could easily sell it for $395k and still make a descent profit. So what I am saying is, even if the Sorento hybrid arrives, dont expect to see the price in the $300k to $400k range due to tax savings.
