thanks a lot williaml. it is indeed a very comparison and by looking at the specs, i am more or less decided to wait for the cx-5 to be launch... hope mazda can get it here soon.

actually for normal driving, what is the difference between 2WD and 4WD? can u please share some experience here? pros and cons? appreciate it

If your daily roads is within city, then 2WD is sufficient, 4WD is for those who need to drive light off-road occasionally or countries with winter season, 4WD is neccessary.

Some of the nice features on upcoming Mazda CX-5 :- Push-start system, Bi-Xenon with Adaptive front lighting system, sunroof, full leather seats, 6 airbags, BOSE sound system, built-in GPS and etc...5 colors available.

You may go ahead for booking since the estimated price is available.

CRV 2.0 is generally deemed to be under powered. From the figures 154ps@6000rpm vs. CRV's 150ps@6200rpm and 20.0kg-m@4000rpm vs. CRV's 19.4kg-m@4200rpm, the CX5 isn't really far off from the CRV. Bro williaml, what's your opinion?

C8pmw, the weight of the veh also plays an important part, As part of the Skyactiv Technology, CX5 will use more high tensile steel which helps in weight reduction without comprising the safety and rigidity of the body. The lightening technology will contribute to better power:weight ratio.

CX5 isn't just another model, the Skyactiv technology itself really set a new dimension is building a new vehicle. If u have time, pls go to the link below and understand the Skyactiv, u will be impressed. smile_cool.gif

gearbox technology and gear ratio will also affect the behaviour....so...just wait that cx-5 to come and test drive smile_big.gif

William,

Is there any diesel version available? I saw in mudah.my some stated diesel and some gasoline.
Please confirm this. If diesel version available, is good.
