whats the metric for pretty good? I mean you must have a benchmark or competitor you're expecting CX3 to at least meet or supersede??The CX3 looks great, now we just have to wait for some driving reviews. The low weight should signal good things for driving dynamics. I think with a car like this fuel economy is super important. I know I'd be upset if it wasn't pulling some pretty impressive fuel economy numbers.
LOL thats not an easy win, there is less glamour and tons more work in bottom to top change in components and culture. To "re-engineer some massively significant component that takes millions" is easier and more visible than what Mazda is doing now.going right down to the fasteners is crazy but come to think about it, it's easier to do that than it is to re-engineer some massively significant component that takes millions, might as well take advantage of easy wins.
