    See earlier comments on the CX-5, it's a far better car overall.

    Don't get carried away with the apparent ruggedness of most 4x4s. If they haven't got a separate chassis, or are very heavy anyway (such as later Rangies and the big VAG ones like Q7 and Tuareg, they are just cars with a height complex. They will be equally good (or bad) at handing bad roads and off-road situations.

    you're into Mazdas now?. Soon you'll become a Remainer too.
    Remember the time you took the piss because Iliked the Mazda 6 MPS. One of the best Q cars ever.

    Mazda is by the far the best Jap manufacturer.

    Fair enough. I wasn't considering circumstances as a factor beyond preference.
