    Mazda's a bit slower in seeing the light

    why on earth would you trade your m4 for an x4?

    and RWD is the sweet spot unless you got tons of torque.

    My guess is due to the fact the M4 is RWD and that boandlkramer wants similar performance but with AWD

    My suggestion personally would be to hold onto your M4 until the next generation 3 series comes out.

    If you want a crossover, why not get a bigger sedan like a 5 series or something? More sleek and good looking then the x4 IMO.

    If you sell your M4, you will regret it. No car in this world can compare to a RWD BMW whipping around a corner under throttle. Iím only mentioning this because my expensive with a RWD car was my f10 528i with winter tires, which I found to be totally manageable and actually quite a lot of fun in snow.

    TBH, I’m “rotund” and getting older.; climbing in/out will get challenging. I don’t need a family car as my kids are adults. The X4 m40i is probably the best compromise for what I seek.

    I got all excited that AWD might be coming soon, but then I read this article:

    http://www.thedrive.com/sheetmetal/1...e-next-3-and-6

    Apparently, they can't fit AWD in the current sedans. So this means the earliest opportunity would be in the all-new 3. More likely the all-new 6 which is 2-3 years away I think.

    Since you donít need a family car anymore, I was actually thinking that your current lineup in the stable suits your needs really well. The CX-5 for utility, M4 for your ďweekendĒ car to have fun in? Itís a good pairing.

    The next Mazda 6 will be RWD, but Iím sure they will offer AWD for Canadian markets and what-not. but I think it will be something like a BMW where you wonít get the most potential from the vehicle during spirited driving or the best balance with AWD (unless were are talking well over 400ft/lb of torque anyways)

    You keep saying this, and while I certainly agree a RWD set up would give the 6 some much needed panache, I just don't see it happening. All signs point to the next gen skyactiv-x engine being used in FWD set ups.

    Correct. Would require to much alterations on an existing old vehicle to make it viable

    Is the same thing an issue for the CX-5? Not enough room for the turbo and AWD?
