Salam and good day,
would like to purchase a Mazda 5 if it comes with Skyactive engine/technology. When this model will be available. The Japanese Premacy already equipped with this.

You may consider its sibling model - Mazda Biante, will bring in by 1Q 2014 as CBU model, it featured Skyactiv-G 2.0L and Skyactiv Drive of 6 speed transmission, price wise, I would say within Mazda5 range.

Great news! Will it mean Mazda8 will be phase out in Malaysia or worldwide?

Nope, Mazda Biante is a model positioned between Mazda5 and Mazda8. Size wise is similar to the latest Nissan Serena Hybrid that just launched recently.

After have a test drive on Nissan Serena Hybrid, i dont think Serena performance and comfortable level is on par with Mazda5 or Biante. Serena is good on space design only which very practical for big family.

Nissan Serena is a practical and spacious people mover but it might short of fun drive.

Current Biante was released in 2008. The one that will coming in is the same model or a new model is coming out? Browse the Mazda Japan, Biante is between 5 and 8, however talked to the Mazda's salesman, said it is at the Alphard class, then the price should be the same.

If the price is at M5 range, definitely will bring it home.

Sigh, how can 2.0L MPV can priced at Alphard range? As it positioned between Mazda5 and Mazda8, so definitely price below Mazda8.

The salesman could be wrong. As we know Biante is between M5 and M8. Just hope that Biante will be a reduced price model.
