why the heck would you set yourself up for future financial doom? Besides it costs double the cars TS listed.

Mazda 6 2.5 from owner experience.
I am letting go my 2017, 2018 registered Mazda 6 2.5 for CX8 due to growing family needs.
PM me if you are interested, we can arrange test drive.
Thanks.

Something to add.
Assume you will be in this company or position for the next 3 years.
At rm2k per month, your scope will be a 60-70k car.

Just get a city/vios and finish paying in 3 years.

Remember don't let this be a financial burden to yourself.

Have yet to hear anything about the new Accord 10th gen. Last year they say wanna bring it in Oct 19, but now we're in Nov already.

Such a shame, since the car is already 2.5 years old, and Indo n Thai have already gotten it

blame the exchange rate and the NAP.

After NAP settled down, then the new models will start flooding in because clarity is there and car makes can better make decisions on where to adjust their margins.

I'll go with either Accord or Mazda6.

Accord for i-VTEC + CVT reliability. Almost premium material feels. Spacious rear cabin. But they only bring in 1.5T & 2.0T (hybrid) for Thai market. If me, I'll wait for hybrid version.

Mazda6 for superb handling. Nyum.. Nyum.. Kodo body. Premium feels for sure. But not so spacious rear cabin compared with Accord.

Overall, I'll go with Accord.

Mazda 6. Camry interior is just fugly & does not match the price tag you're paying.

why would you recommend a SUV over a sedan for slippery situations? sedan has lower center of gravity. Infact i've not seen a SUV in rallying, most of them are either sedans or compact or some weird unique thing.

Yeah, Subaru Crosstrek Rally is under weird unique thing.. tongue.gif

Crosstrek = Xv in US market

BTW, XV handling even shame some of the sedan in similar C-Segment category thanks to its AWD.

its not just its AWD design ,and you can get AWD with plenty other manufacturers too. Subaru's best use is in slippery cases like snow. If for gravel/sand i would go with italian or audi (AWD).

Thing is the rally ones get beefy drivetrains which in a normal consumer variant isnt that beefy and breaks when you exceed the slip difference which lets you drift it correctly, but try this on a non beefed up transfer/slip case and it will break.

AWD is to do with traction, the actual handling has nothing to do with it except for drifting. The toyota x86 (early corolla) did not have a rear differential which makes it easy to drift. So for normal use case AWD is for traction, handling for subaru is thanks to its lower center of grav for the flat engine combine with other tweaks and chassis design, they've been doing well on snow since the 90s.
