How you feel after driving your Forester? The increase ride height & visibility nice? I can't wait for the new CX-5 come out, so I can go kay poh. But with the 2L engine, don't think I'll consider it. Even my boat is more powerful.
My wife after testing X-Trail, CX-5 then forester fell for the forester. More comfort. she just felt better in the forester, even the driving. For the rear, visibility also better as door window is larger. CX-5 due to body shape have smaller window. My family all giants.....hhahahhaha
Different people have different priorities so not all will be the same......

ixeo : I don't care about AWD or RWD or FWD in a SUV. I only care about comfort, handling and how it drives. And I don't care for the CX5 2.0 at all. Gonna drive it to SGP next month so I'll report on FC later.

if you're talking about the GLx series of Mercs, they aren't that comfy. Even then gargantuan GLS. But give me the new E-class over any luxury brand available in M'sia anyday.

Test drove the CX-5 today. The interior feels dated (versus the Mazda 3). Power is meh. But it does handle very car like. I enjoy the high visibility. My boat has more power per kg. Meh.

It doesn't have the supercharger anymore. I think it's a pure turbo 1.4 now. It drives like a turbo car too - uphill the lag is crazy bad. But i think it's my own fault since I'm not used to driving it and it wasn't my car so didn't dare to floor it.

Test drove the tiguan yesterday also, the lag in turbo and DSG is really bad. CX-5 does drive better, but personally i feel the Forester does drive surprisingly well, i didnt expect the 2 liter AWD perform pretty good at low-end.
