FROM CAR AND DRIVER: With the addition of the CX-5 Carbon Edition, it's now possible to get the 250-hp turbocharged engine without paying for either of the top two trim levels. The front-drive version starts at just under $30,000, but those who want all-wheel drive can add it for $1400. Not only does the Carbon Edition have all the same features as the Touring model with the Preferred SV package (Bose stereo, a power-adjustable passenger seat, power liftgate, sunroof, and more), it also has distinct exterior and interior treatments. The former includes black 19-inch wheels and a black metallic grille design; the latter includes red leather seats with red stitching and black accents on the instrument and door panels.

Small and sporty versus larger and less sporty. Price isn't everything. And size does matter.

Turns out my post was based on early bogus information anyway so my point is lost . Before shipping, the CX5 Carbon FWD it is $30,660. Both the base 3 turbo sedan and the base CX 30T are less at $29,900. It only undercuts the base Turbo 3 hatch at 30,900.
C&D was also wrong on the CX5 Carbon's equipment list which does not include sunroof or power liftgate, but still is pretty impressively equipped with a power passenger seat and nice red leather seats. I wish CX-30 had those on some trim level.
