Yeah, we pay a lot more....72,000 USD for a top spec 2.5 CX-5 (and it's still only FWD) and 82,000 USD for a top spec 2,2 184 hp diesel with AWDWe pay the equivalent of 48000 USD for our signature and the equivalent of 5.9 USD for a US.gallon of gas. Some countries are paying a lot more. I’d rather pay your price and have it slightly de-spec’d.
But we get awesome cup holders.Americans have poor taste in cars. We buy based on gimmicks not engineering. Look at the GM offerings from 2000-2010 buncha fleet car trash. Solid rear axle "sports" cats (mustangs).
