I purchased the Dynamic Auto in Eternal Blue Mica. In SA we only have the 2.0 variants available.

Lol I wish car manufacturers would use consistent naming!
Only thing really consistent is "GT".
GX, GS, Touring, Dynamic, Akari, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious...

What? You don't like Active, Dynamic, Individual, and Individual Plus?

One wonders what is the Japanese view of the South African psyche ... not to mention the rest of us gaijin.

But at my age, I regret not getting me some of that "Eternal Blue"! :-)

Haha! Exactly! G, GX, GS, GT would do just fine with the countries adding on base + options!
I love the Eternal Blue Mica but I was actually after the darker blue (can remember the proper name off the top of my head). It only came in a GT and that was $35k CAD with tech. Alas I decided the GS with tech was worth the colour sacrifice 😞 at $28k CAD

Thievery!!!!
