hehh, yea thats what i meant about the wheel bases. since when did 5 inches become indistinguishableSomething is not right here. The shadow line of the 5 should extend 11 inches beyond the rear of the 3. Looks to be about 7 in or 8 at the most. I think the scale is off. Wheelbase match-up does not reflect 5" difference either.
Love my 5 but the 3 is much better proportioned, and is bound to be more nimble. Wonder if it will have any towing capability. Am planning on trading my Focus with its whacky dual clutch auto for one of these. If it can tow a 1000lbs I could (but probably won't) replace my CX5 with it.
Edit 12/13: In the picture, the 18" wheels are 39mm, This establishes a scale, 1" equals 2.17mm (39/18) Difference in length depicted is 13mm/2.17 or just under 6". If actual difference in length is indeed 11" then this composite shows only slightly more than half the actual difference in size between the vehicles. While I appreciate the artistry of the depiction and the skill that went into making it, its misleading and does not serve its intended purpose.
I don't think the ground clearance is exactly the same. You can see in the picture that one is a little bit closer to the ground than another. I would assume the CX3 has a slightly lower clearance than the CX5.is ground clearance identical, the two charts of values dont match...
Only slightly. Is ground clearance something that people are really concerned about? I'm not planning on doing much driving that is going to necessitate a high ground clearance. For me it is more about the ride height than it is about the ground clearance.CX3 sure seems to have better ground clearance in the front going off of the picture above.
Yes!! It's called snow. The CX-5 is 8.5" and most Suby's are 8.7".Is ground clearance something that people are really concerned about?
