I recently took delivery of my new CX5 maxx sport AWD Diesel and I couldn't be happier. I test drove almost everything the cheaper Koreans are good but not this good. iStop is weird for the first time but you soon get used to it and the looks from motorists at the traffic lights?
I took it on a 7 hour round trip to south west vic and we achieved 432km for half tank of diesel which i think is pretty good. my advice to anyone if you are looking at buying SUV definitely give the Maxx Sport AWD consideration and don't be afraid to bargain. It's a buyers market and the car buyers commandments always buy at end of month and as close to financial year as possible and have a list of extras that you want included.
