    Speaking of Mazda:

    Mazda's i-Stop system requires special battery | TopGear.com.ph

    But apparently, the system comes with a special requirement: It needs a higher-quality car battery for it to operate seamlessly. The regular batteries that we normally use on typical cars just won't do.

    ...replacement battery would cost P14,703. Actually, the price would have been more expensive--around P25,000, they say--if the batteries had been sourced from Japan


    This is something to consider when looking at the models with i-stop. Mo tech. Mo problems.

    I am waiting for the local release of this. Hopefully the price is competitive. Will definitely get this if this is released at current Mazda 2 prices.

    Saw this in person last Saturday in Calgary International Auto and Truck show and I must say it is a looker.
    Way way different than an oversized CR-V.

    Heard that the CX3 will be launched next year. Although that same source told me that the 2016 CX5 will most probably be launched in 2017 :confused:

    Re: Upcoming Cars

    How's the maintenance cost of Mazda cars nowadays compared to a Honda or Toyota? I understand the Yojin3 program of Mazda will save one some money during the warranty period but how about after that? That CX-3 is really good looking.

    Re: Upcoming Cars

    Did the math between a Mazda 3 1.6 and an Altis 1.6, even with the 3 year thing, the Altis comes out cheaper. I'd love to have a Mazda 3 but the cars are a little over my budget.

    An overdue post of mine.

    I'm glad we got this Camry last November thinking it's actually one of the best designs since the early 2000. ( My favorite is also 2002-2005 model box type.)

    I like it classy, lolo typish "boring" car

    We got a Pearl White 2.5G and equipped it with pure leather seats in Seatmate. Cost me less than 50k for the sidings and the seats.

    What made me happier is seeing the "new" camry. Because this is by far the worst camry design i've seen so good thing we bought
    the previous model.

    It's back to being that sporty look and basically looks like the bigger brother of Altis combined Vios.

    People really are subjective types of living things because for me this ^ refreshed model looks the boldest of all Camrys ever made.
    That design might even make me buy a Camry for a midsize, instead of the new Sonata or Optima.

    I don't like the trend for huge front grills. The new Honda Odyssey is the epitome of ugly front for me.

    I'm with you on this. The Camry is all about refinement and understated class. The new one just screams "mid life crisis"

    Re: Upcoming Cars

    I just think of it as the "Corolla-lization" of the Camry. It must be a testament to the Corolla design when all Toyota sedan models current and upcoming are uniting under the new corporate design direction.

    The bad is that like Audi, it's getting harder to tell models apart facade-wise.

    The Camry needed the injection of youthfulness so Toyota really tried to be more sporty in its mid-life refresh. But like most mid-life facelifts, they often come out as unnatural and desperate.

    With regard to the "new" look of the Camry, I'm torn about it. True it has lost its executive, state car look and I already miss it, but maybe it's just time Toyota throws a little caution to the wind in terms of design, something that Toyota has not been good at in the past, but seems to be overdoing now. I'm looking at you facelifted Alphard and Prado.

    Re: Upcoming Cars

    I agree with you regarding the dumbing down of the 'executive' look of the new Camry. In that category, it seems Accord and the Teana have kept the panache. Sonata, OTOH, is very youthful and full of élan, design-wise.

    ^Saw a Hyundai Azera last Tuesday. It's better looking than the good looking Sonata. Wonder if HARI will release it here?

    Anyways, what's a good small crossover SUV nowadays?

    Re: Upcoming Cars

    I guess it's tough that nowadays, car manufacturers are trying to release global cars to reduce cost.

    Camry is an executive car locally, but considered a regular car in other countries.

    My high school friend from Sydney once posted is his FB account... Jazz or Camry? And from the comments you'll be able to differentiate guys from Manila and guys from Sydney... He chose the Camry.
