Nothing up yet on goauto.com.au, mazda3.com.au or mazda.com.au.

(Although Mazda.com.au has a new site design).

Time to start checking every 15 minutes, though…

A brief article in the Australian’s ‘Drive’ supplement today – Neo will be $21,490, Maxx $25,490, Maxx Sport $26,175. That’s a fair bit cheaper than the prices that were rumoured back in October.

No price for the SP23, and little detail on the options.

Now this is excellent news!! :D

Dealers were given a brief spec list with indicative prices in early Dec. Just for comparison's sake, previous indicative prices are Neo $22,500k; Maxx $26,000k; Maxx Sport $26,700k and SP23 $30,700k. Given these reductions, it is possible that the SP23 come in under $30k. $29,990?

So reductions are: Neo $1,000, Maxx $500, Maxx Sport $500. Diff between Maxx and Maxx Sport stays about the same at $700. But what is really mind-boggling is that the gap between Neo and Maxx has stretched to $4k!! ($3.5k based on indicative prices). We know the safety pack and power packs are approx $1,600 and $600 respectively (ie $2,200), so what does the extra $1,800 buy?? :?

15" alloys, 6 stack CD and a better interior trim we know, and there's been some previous speculation on this forum as to other extra, and as this will be put to rest when the official announcement is made, I shall keep silent. But I think those electroluminescent gauges have got a better chance of making it to the Maxx. Yeah!! :p

Of course, those of you eyeing the SP23 will have nothing to worry about - just what colour you want your baby to be.

It is great hearing that the prices have dropped. Something in our favour !!

I know this may be outdated now with prices lowering from originals quoted, but i thought i'd post how my dealer calc'd up the SP23 & Maxx Sport for me:

$30,700 + $2,000 (auto) + $990 (DDL) + $1,870 SD + $449 rego = $36,000

Maxx Sports was:

$26,700 + $2,000 (auto) + $990 (DDL) + $1,470 SD + $449 rego = $31,609

+ approx $700 if you want cruise control added.

For me at $36000 for the SP23 made me start looking at other options ie MX6 & Accords.

Looking forward to seeing one !!
