Hi,
After all I've been admiring the K5 since its launching but now all of a sudden came the Mazda6,can u guys give me some comment about these cars?

Mazda6 do have the SkyActiv and some latest technologies but I know K5 not bad too,more spec comparing with 2.0 Of Mazda6

Unless KIA bring in their GDI version engine or else it can't be a fair comparison between the 2. sleep.gif

That why it's pointless to compare 2 car with different generation engine, it's like comparing Campro IAFM with Nu Dual VVT engine.

The best thing to do is test drive them both. The Kia offers a good package but I suspect that if you test drive them both, you'll buy the Mazda.

I've tested the M6 but not the K5 yet cos hardly can get a K5 to test drive in my area.

I haven't tested either. I considered the Mazda 6 two years ago but the 2.0 was too empty for my liking. That was a different car though.

You might want to hang on for the new Accord. It was launched in Bangkok today. I'm not sure when it will come to Malaysia though.

Yes,till today the M6 not giving out too much of expectation compare with the 2.5 version.Too disappointed with that.Thats why I will consider the K5 over the M6.

Accord?If its like what u said,it will reveal the pic n the spec soon.I will buy it after election,agree?

I'm not sure I understand the question.

You can see the pics here: http://paultan.org/2...accord-bangkok/

I'd imagine the specs will be different though. Honda are talking about launching 5 new models this year so they need to get their finger out.
