which is more powerful? My parents plan to buy a "big" yet stylish SUV. They care about how powerful are they in real life because this car will be using in my hometown Sabah. Where road doesn't like KL, they have big holes and cracking road. Really awful shakehead.gif

Budget around 150k. Owners of one of the car comment will be much appreciated biggrin.gif

For Sabah road. Better buy pajero sport. Tougher & bigger.
Subaru XV and Mazda CX5 just an urban suv. If just using in KK, ok la..

khusyairi After you watch this clip on Subaru XV you won't be saying "Subaru XV and Mazda CX5 just an urban suv"

I am not the one saying Subaru XV and Mazda XV as urban suv.
But Subaru and Mazda said that in their advertisement and their marketing strategy. In their manual also said like that it's urban suv not mean for challenging off-road.

Subaru XV CVT will not stand tough road in Sabah.

CX-5 better if 4WD version.

But as urban suv, It didnt have Low gear or high gear 4WD that u can choose which usually can found in Toyota or Mitsubishi or automated setting that U can find in land rover as example.

Somemore U need smaller rims wt bigger tyre if U plan to drive in Sabah. 19" or 17" rims for CX5 is too big.

actually, I am very curious as to the concept of x-over. I mean, those who bought, are buying or eyeing an x-over, what attract you to go for x-over.

It's a cross breed of SUV and a HatchBack. However, it compromise the road handling of a HB (being taller), and also lack the offroad capability of a SUV (most are 2-wheels or AWD, no 4wD option).

Dun get me wrong, I am not making a critic statement but rather a curious mind want to know.

This picture is the reason why these cars are popular at certain places
They aren't exactly off-road, but just very very poor road conditions.
driving a normal car would make you cry.

Come on, the tests in that video aren't that challenging, are they? I'm quite certain my Kangoo could do most of them too, and the Kangoo 4x4 could do basically all of em (except maybe for one test, afraid it'll topple over).

Do this with an XV and I'll be impressed:




Anyway, Citroen C5? Press a button and the car will lift up, letting you cross this kind of terrain.

Stylish not necessarily be able to work in off road conditions. U could buy a used X5 or Land Rover. But new ones i would not look at the Subaru or Mazda really. Since in your place, u should realize that sometimes driving what a lot of other people drive there makes more sense than buying something that does not work. Not necessarily mean u should own a Hilux (Which i know a lot of that there). But being true off road SUV like Land Rovers, Pajero or even a Land Cruiser.

Personnel preference would go for cx5 instead of xv.
Outlook - cx5
Features - cx5 gadgets and bose sound system
Performance - cx5 skyactive engine win over the fuel consumption

i see....again, pardon my ignorance, isn't cross-over built on a sedan chasis which mean low clearance, also are they using stiffer suspension like the one in a true SUV? how would the cross-over help in navigating pothole roads in the photo?

not ignorance la. Just you never driven in such conditions before.
2 most important thing about cross-overs VS normal sedan cars:

1. 4-wheel drive (and traction control) is very important.
If you drive in mud roads then you will know 2-wheel's disadvantage. I kena both front wheels stuck in mud last time when drive in kampung during rain. the 2 rear wheels just sit there staring at you and ask "apa lu mau?"

2. also another strong point of cross-over is the higher ground clearance than normal sedans.
so not easy to hit the undercarriage of car in potholes or poor roads.
not forgetting a higher profile allows driver to navigate and see better ahead on road conditions.

There is a huge market for cross-overs simply because true off-roaders usually lack the luxury and comfort, and true off-roaders are meant for...as the name implies, off-road (like jungle trekking, mount climb, etc) cross-overs are usually inexpensive in comparison and has the benefits of both worlds.

I think that is my "igorant" points. There are quite a few "soft-roader SUV" options available in the market. So, why not those soft-SUVs if that is the case. A cross-over does not have the best of both sedan/SUV but instead it has the reverse (half empty POV, lol).

Check out Ssangyong Aryton....it's a pretty impressive 2.0 Diesel SUV with AWD. And it only costs less than rm130k. Cheapest AWD SUV diesel.

The torque (360nm) is not a laughing matter and will put to shame those highway warriors. brows.gif

smart phone different story, no matter what innovative features they can pack it in, they are always handicapped by the battery technology, which the last commercially-viable breakthrough was Lithion and that was like donkey years ago.

Just test drove both xv and cx 5 over the weekend and am seriously considering buying the xv. Cx5 handling and engine was surprisingly bad... I really wanted the cx 5 before the test drive but not anymore...

However, I've still got one last issue with it. Is subaru's general maintenance and service more expensive than say, the crv, cx5 and also the asx? Do I have to wait very long for parts if I ever had to change the side mirrors or the bumper if I had an accident with the car?

Thanks guys!

hmm... im interested to know about the fuel consumption comparison between cx5 and xv. as i wasnt able to test it during the short test drive... Any thoughts from any one?!!

im still quite undecided!!

i use to love the cx5 and watch in amazement whenever i see it on the road. it is such a handsome looking car.

However.. all of that went to dust after i test drove the cx5.. xv felt so much planted on the ground and especially at high speed, it is super stead... engine and gear change felt a lot more smooth when i step on the accelerator as compared to the cx5 who just ROAARRR whenever you need to pick up speed.

so now my dilemma is whether to sacrifice slightly on the handling and engine and gear responsiveness and get a more popular brand of cx5.. or go for the great handling of subaru and sacrifice on the second hand value and less popular brand..

I guess at the end of the day it depends on how you use your car and how you like to drive.

I would say CX-5 is actually more comfortable, whereas the XV gives you a better drive. If you spend more time in slow moving traffic, I would say CX-5 sounds better and have a good probability of maintaining resale value compared to XV.

But if you like driving around and usually drive in a spirited manner, XV is quite good provided you are willing to sacrifice on resale value, some boot space and CVT noise.

For FC u can refer to the Asia auto fuel efficiency awards 2012 and 2013 under compact SUV ~ XV is perform 7L/100km get 2nd place is same with land rover freelander 2.2diesel ~
If taken cx5 to compare, dun forget to compare the AWD system with 2WD that selling almost same price ~ ans also the rear suspension that cX 5 is using multi link and XV is using double wish bone ~ do some compare on that

which is more powerful? My parents plan to buy a "big" yet stylish SUV. They care about how powerful are they in real life because this car will be using in my hometown Sabah. Where road doesn't like KL, they have big holes and cracking road. Really awful  shakehead.gif

Budget around 150k. Owners of one of the car comment will be much appreciated  biggrin.gif

If you're looking for a big and stylish SUV, the Hyundai Santa Fe 2013 comes to mind.

XV is AWD all time

CX5, you would have a choice of 2WD

But, i personally feel SUV, AWD is good to have...based on the weight

SUBARU XV is better in handling&power, fuel saver, safety
Mazda CX5 is more stylish, feature and spec, new technology

test drive both, you will know which to choose.

Since Subaru XV has superb handling, wouldn't that mean a stiffer suspension = bumpy drive?

i only mention ''better'' handling comparison with CX5, superb handling is belongs to BMW

Stiffer suspension = bumpy drive belongs to Audi Q3 or Q5

it is not as hard as Q3 or Q5, but if you use to harrier soft soft suspension, yes, you can say it is bumpy.

if u have really test drive XV and compare other car , XV is using double wishbone in rear suspension (rear 2 wheel is jump individual ) compare with other brand are using multilink suspension (rear 2wheel is link together)

So u can imagine which 1is more bumby~

I see, so I presume its the batch with 19 inch rims or did you kena the subsequent rim downgrade? My bro in law has one as well. I think it is the best batch of all the CX-5s so far.

I think Mazda CX5 can do more spins and more drifting slides and screeches than this noisy blue car.

And LOL laugh.gif , all that XV does is make like a batu/cone for that blue car to pusing pusing around... go la, go buy Subaru XV to become like statue like that.

Think people! The Mazda CX5 would be spinning around the whole shopping mall - and SO SILENTLY too.
