Thanks all for the inputs. Just read about subaru’s promo this Q4 and now we’re considering the XV as well as it’s now in our budget range (~1.3M). We checked out the CX3 and back seat space and ground clearance were smaller compared to our other choices which is why it got removed from our list. As it stands now, top choice is the XV, followed by HRV then the Tucson.

Our Baic M20 is almost 3 years old, so far no major damage, just changed the battery last month & wipers. Now they have a few distro around the country, latest i think is the M50 but at the current price, others might consider the eXpander
take the 2 month challenge & double your funds just like I did!

Pricing is aggreesive, looks Mazda-ish though. I wonder why Mazda is quiet about this.

I actually saw the coolray up close. Interior and exterior looks very euro and loaded with tech. Engine is a 3-cylinder turbo with DCT. Agent said they were using “wet” DCT which should fair better with PH traffic conditions. Admittedly/Unfortunately, I’m still not comfortable in buying China branded cars.

^it's their new design philosophy - "Dynamic Shield". I believe it started with the Xpander -> Strada -> Montero, and now with the mirage. it's a thing now with car manufacturers; Nissan with their "V-motion", Hyundai with their "fluidic sculpture", mazda with their kodo, etc.

Dynamic shield started with Outlander and ASX in 2016. Quite understated design back then. The newer Dynamic Shield design cues with the headlights in the bumper started with the Xpander. Our Hyundai Palisade also has the headlights in the bumper.
