    +1 That is EXACTLY what I did! I looked at the Audi Q5, Acura RDX, etc. and just bought a 2019 Signature in Eternal Blue (pics, review, etc to follow next week or so) as the overall value was tough to beat.

    I do wonder if the 3 will come in a Signature trim. Might not be a bad idea.

    Add the X3 to that list and change the color to Deep Crystal Blue and that's me!

    Just picked it up this morning.

    Congrats! One thing I noticed is that some of the Mazda paints are hard to photograph. The Soul Red I went with is one of those, it looks mediocre to nice in photos but incredible in person.

    And while I was test driving I noticed that both of the CX-5 blues (Eternal and Deep) look a lot nicer in person. A lot of paints are the opposite, you drool over photos and then when you see the real thing itís a big let down, so plain and flat.

    Thatís why I think Iíll like the new 3 more once I see it in person. The soul red is a very dynamic color for sure.

    They have already hit the dealers in Mexico. The pictures look good.

    Really? Where did you see that? Would make sense as that's where they'll be made, but this seems early.

    Unfortunately, I don't share your optimism. I will be in the market for a C-segment hatch next year and I was really hoping it would be a 3. However, most of the exterior shots I've seen leave me cold and although I suspect it will look better in person, the design really goes against the functionality/utility I am looking for in a hatch so I think my choices will be a leftover 2018 3 or a 2019 Hyundai Elantra N-line. I might have gone for a 2018 VW Golf Sportwagen, but I don't care for they way they bundle accessories and the 2019 gets a smaller engine, which is a real deal killer.

    I think the Alltrack still has the 1.8.

    It might, but I don't need or want AWD or even a 1.5" lift (ironically, that's how much I lowered my CX-5!).

    Iím probably keeping my GTI. But I will hold off judgment until I see the 3 in person. AWD is tempting but the 3 wonít get the 2.5t anytime soon so to me itís a downgrade vs GTI.

    Yea the part about them being on ships didnít make sense for arriving in Mexico if they are made there. But maybe I donít understand lol.
