Hi all,

Got this attachment from a Mazda dealer.
Claimed it would be launched in 1st Quarter 2014 and est price
is SGD120k thereabouts.

The pics look impressive and if the engine matches the Mazda 6 skyactiv
one albeit a 1.6litre version then should be a gem!
What do you guys think?

Looks like an upsized, muscled Maz 2 & I love no backside cars.

 

The interior defn dun look BnB. COE aside, looks good.

 

But compression of 13.0 dunno whether will have heaty issues in SG. Its like a regular TC engine at 9.0 comp b4 light pressure turbo spools it to 13.0-13.5.

 

And does that mean oil changes need to be earlier like a TC car? 

 

est 120k, sounds too good to be true or the seller is convinced that COE price will sinkhole 1st quart 2014.

Everything seem impressive except max power and torque delivery seem to be unleashed at very high rpm. Wonder if this will make it feel very lethargic to drive in our stop-start traffic.

unless at lower rpm it already reaches 75-80% of max torque & gradually reaches max at high rpm.

 

As for the fc, if it can really walk the talk, then maybe the so so hp can see pass. But for sg roads & conservative NSH speeds should still be adequate.

 

I cant open the brochure as I opened with a non compatible & after down loading adobe, it still keeps going to the unsuitable "open with".

Think Peugeot also ditched that.

The only bad thing is now, used mazdas are more expensive compared to other cars in the same category due to its popularity. A 2008 Mazda 3 1.6 is more expensive than a 2008 WRX [dizzy]

For those looking for a new family car, this one looks like not much space in the rear.

"Tight back seat. Illogical. The car's bigger for 2014. The wheelbase — distance between front and back wheels, which dictates how much leg and knee room is available — grew 3 inches. But Mazda lists 0.4 of an inch less rear legroom in the new one. And it feels tighter than that"

They go with the ang moh chia style - tight leg and head room. Even the BMW 5 series is freaking cramp at the rear.
