CRZ USA pricing predictions

Well the CRZ has been fully revealed and we know it will have a choice of 6 speed or CVT with 2 trim levels base and EX and that Nav will be an option on the EX trim. The car is due for US deliveries in in July or August.

So let's hear your USA M.S.R.P. pricing predictions for each model including the standard $710 shipping charge.

My best guess:

Base 6 spd $21,350
Base CVT $22,100
EX 6 spd $23,150
EX CVT $23,900
EX 6spd NAV $24,650
EX CVT NAV $25,400

And at these prices I predict people will stay away in droves and they will sell fewer than 10,000 units in the USA. I would like to predict that the price would be $2000 less than this, but based on the weak dollar and the hints that have been dropped at the auto show, I seriously doubt it.

So put in your predictions now.

Surprised to see some $23,000 + votes for the base model!
I made my price prediction above and I stick by it, but I am sorry to say, that I think there is a far greater chance the base CRZ will be $23,000+ than there is, that it will be less than $20,000.

I infer this based on the comments at the auto show by John Mendel, (the head of American Honda) suggesting they have a 10,000/year sales target. That is a awfully low sales target (less than 1 car/dealer/month) and I can only guess that this is because they plan to price it out of the perceived value range for most people.

Also the comments that the CRZ will be a priced "a little above the Insight," to me means it will be priced a little more than a "equivalently equipped Insight." And the base CRZ is equivalently equipped to the Insight EX, which is $22,010.
Now that we are getting much closer to a US release for the CRZ, I thought I would revive this old poll and price prediction thread.

Based on the prices in other markets and the high demand in Japan, I think that my original predictions made at the start of this thread might be $1000 to $1500 low.

I still might have interest in buying one at $23,000 OTD for a base 5 spd, but I don't think I will have any interest at any more than that.

How many people are ready to pay $28,000 or more?
And the Winner of the Price prediction is BizzyBear.

Well done you almost nailed the prices right on!

Congratulations, your new CRZ is waiting for you at the in the cyberlounge;-))

So the next price prediction is how much over list will your dealer want to charge for the New CRZ. I already know my local dealer wants an extra $5000!
