    LOL I’ve heard that. I don’t know what it is but the Vette never appealed to me. Not saying it’s not a great sports car. Just all my life it’s been the 911 in my dreams. Someday!

    I agree. I think they’re going after Forester and Cherokee buyers.

    Literally noone but 1 young guy and 1 cougar were into it the whole time I had it. The 370z had everyone all about it to the point of randos walking up at the gas station to talk about it.

    Rav4 still on are radar but I think the CX-5 took top spot. CRV isn't even on our radar no longer. I am intrigued by an electric jeep though!!

    Still wishing Mazda would drop a turbo in that Chinese CX 4, and bring it to the States - maybe in a few years?

    So, was reading about the new Ford Escape on Car and Driver and it looks very similar to the CX-5. What I found interesting was when they listed the Escape competition, they mentioned the useful CR-V, RAV4 and Rogue but not the CX-5. A little surprised but do Car and Driver really believe the CX-5 has moved out of class?

    They also leave out the Tiguan. Probably not a complete list and I wouldn’t read into it.

    "This all adds up to a vehicle that can hardly even be considered in the same conversation as Toyotas and Hondas anymore. Frankly, the CX-5 Signature is nicer—to drive, to look at, and to sit in—than some similarly sized crossovers with full-on premium badges (we're looking at you, Cadillac XT4 and Acura RDX). " {they said that here} fwiw

    A co-worker of mine has an RDX that he’s not thrilled with and has been talking to me about what he should get. I keep telling him to check out the CX-5 but he seems to be struggling with it not being a premium badge.

    The agony of viewing an Acura that isnt an NXS as a status symbol. When poors flex on poorer poors, I guess.

    I'll be honest that I am still struggling thinking that the CX-5 is premium.
    Even though they have refined the newer CX-5 I still view it as an economy class CUV.

    I may still consider the CX-5 though. Regardless of how I see it classed it has an exceptional bang for the buck.
    Besides I am having trouble convincing my wife to let me get a Macan S.
