Five gets you seven
Seven-seat SUVS take a big price slice
and has added drive-away pricing: $38,490 in the traffic. The deal also applies to 2013-build vehicles but Ford hasn’t sweetened it with extra warranty or a free service.
As with the Captiva7, the Territory has six airbags and a five-star safety rating but only rear parking sensors, no rear view camera at this price. Metallic paint adds $385. Again, you should haggle.
The Territory gets capped price servicing ($295, $295 and $555 each year respectively for the first three years) and the offer extends to six years— three years longer than the warranty period.
Meanwhile Mazda has already started to discount the CX-9 seven-seater which was given a facelift late last year.
It’s the biggest and the best among this trio— and the dearest. But the $45,990 drive-away offer takes the sting out of its usual premium. Metallic paint is no extra charge and it does have six airbags, five-star safety and a rear camera as standard.
But Mazda is one of the few leading car brands to not offer capped price servicing. It has password protected ‘‘ menu’’ pricing on the website, so be sure to ask before you sign on the dotted line. This reporter isonTwitter:
