    What's the verdict of your test drives gentlemen? heheh. When I was in the same predicament, what I didn't like in the CX5 was just the throttle response. Otherwise it was still a toss up, not considering the price.

    Yojin 3 has the CX5 going, sa totoo lang. 3 years of PMS is a big amount of savings.

    Amongst all crossovers, the CR-V is still the king of practicality. Best loading floor (tied with RAV4) best seat folding system, one-click and the rear seat cushion flips up, the rear seatback folds into the space under it, and you've got a load floor bigger and flatter than some vans. It has one of the biggest backseats (if not THE biggest) and good space everywhere.

    A 2.0 CR-V is all the family car you'll ever need. And the ride is much better than the previous generation... which was better than the crappy 2nd gen "AUV", but still stiff.

    Exciting, however, it is not.

    -

    The CX-5 and Forester are both pretty cool. When I drove the Fozzie 2.0, it was rather stiff. Supposedly, newer units have a softer suspension, and indeed, the XT we drove for the February Big Test (CX5 2.5 versus Forester XT versus Tiguan) was softer.



    The comparo does not include the CX-5 Pro and the Forester 2.0i, sadly, but I've driven both. The CX-5 is much more fun to drive. Like a sports hatchback... just taller. If you don't need AWD, there's no reason other than the extra headroom and ground clearance to get the Forester. If you're looking at practicality, though, you should still consider the CR-V.

    The throttle response is actually good. If it was the 4x4, there is some lag due to the AWD system, though. The 4x2 is much, much peppier despite the smaller engine.

    *Niky, I drove the 2.0 CX5, it felt hesitant to rev or get to speed at some point.

    You're probably feeling the difference between drive-by-wire and cable-throttle. There might be other electronic throttle cars that respond faster, but the CX-5 isn't particularly laggardly compared to most. At least, not the 2.0 I drove.

    How do you compare the suspension of Rav4 against Forester and CX5? I drove the CX5 and the suspension is a little softer than Xtrail CVT. I would assume Rav4 is the softest as plenty of Toyotas have soft suspension except for the Fortuner. Tucson for me has the worst suspension followed by Escape.

    CX-5 2.0 AT owner here. Share ko ung thoughts ko on some of the issues, problem lang di ako nkpagtest drive ng Subaru. Suspension, I'd say it is in the middle of the pack, stiffer than CR-V but softer than Tucson, I find it softer than the Rav4 though but not by much or baka dahil mas matagal ako sa CX-5. As for the throttle response, I think it's not lagging, just that because it is very quick to upshift, it doesn't have much power being in the high gear when you press the throttle so it has to shift back to a lower gear to have the power which causes delay. I think pag manual swabe ung throttle response. BTW, I am having 11-12km/L on mixed driving, 60% highway, 40% city. I got 8.5 km/L (manual computation) nung nagtest drive misis ko and the speed is almost 10-30kms lang, 30kph max.
