    Also when I searched used it was hard to find any with the safety tech as it something typically only on the highest trim.

    Edit: what strange to me is the system VW/Audi use is Panasonic. Why aren*t the Japanese automakers using it?
    Industry relationships are really odd.

    I know the head unit in my MKV from a decade ago was also Panasonic.

    Why buy the CX-5 Signature when you can buy the new Infinity QX50?

    https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...t-drive-review

    The QX50 costs more, is slower, uses more gas and did I mention, costs a lot more?

    I thought Lexus uses Mark Levinson® as it’s premium sound system? Mark Levinson® is owned by Harman who also makes Harman Kardon audio system. Then Harman is a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics from Korea.

    Yeah no more Blaupunkt! Blaupunkt used to be big especially in Europe. I installed Blaupunkt head unit and speakers on my 1998 Honda CR-V only the head unit now switched to Sony. Unfortunately it’s hard to find any Blaupunkt products nowadays, and many people don’t even know the name!

    Blaupunkt is still pretty common in 20 year old domestic hoopties here in Germany.

    People know the name, it's all over Walmart and Auto Parts stores. It's junk, but I guess for the price, it works and is okay...They evented the car stereo, and then the Japanese took over, even a few US brands...

    What I have seen in the GXs anyway is Pioneer head units, ML amplifers and speakers in top trim like mine and can't remember if it is a Pioneer amp in lower trims. I've also seen Fujitsu Ten head units in non-ML lower trim models as well.

    Surely better out there but it's the best sounding stock stereo I have ever personally had in any vehicle. Mine has 17 speakers.

    ^^^Do I agree with this statement...hell YES! Plus anyone that enjoys driving wouldn't want any vehicle with a POS CVT Even automatics suck but way better than any CVT and Mazda's A6 is a good one.

    Haven’t checked car audio’s at WalMart or auto parts stores for a while ⋯ But I believe Blaupunkt once a subsidiary of German Robert Bosch had filed for bankruptcy and liquidated a couple of years ago.

    Many old-and-famous audio brands are now owned by Korean such as Mark Levinson® or Chinese.
