'Tis the season to be jolly, after all
Dec 1, 2009
It's the season of giving and car manufacturers and distributors are feeling mighty generous. Check out the best car deals in the local automotive market this December.


Mitsubishi Motors Philippines is giving new-car buyers an opportunity to own a brand-new Mitsubishi Fuzion, Adventure, or Lancer with a downpayment of as low as P90,000 in line with its Holiday Treats easy-own promo.

The minimum downpayment allows one to bring home a 1.6-liter Lancer GLX, a P99,000 initial fee can already net one an Adventure GLX, while P139,000 up-front payment can get one a Fuzion GLX. All these terms are payable for up to 60 months.

One can also skip interest altogether with a 24-month plan for a Lancer GLX or GLS, or an Adventure GLX or GLS Sport.

Purchases made through Mitsubishi Philippines' easy-own plans are inclusive of a three-year LTO registration, chattel mortgage and comprehensive insurance including the now-all-important "Acts of God" coverage.

Mazda Zoom-zoom deal

The 1.6-liter Mazda3 has never been more affordable thanks to Mazda Philippines' all-in deal for a downpayment of P99,000. Buyers of the more upscale and sportier 2.5-liter Mazda6 can take it home for a downpayment of P249,000. BT-50 pickup truck buyers can get the 2.5-liter 4x2 model for a downpayment of P149,000 and the 3-liter 4x4 variant for an initial fee of P199,000.

Buyers who want the low monthly payment option payable for up to 60 months with a 50-percent downpayment can get the Mazda3 for P9,999 and the Mazda6 for P18,999 every month.

Either way, Mazda Philippines' installment plans come with the chattel mortgage, three-year LTO registration and insurance.


Isuzu Philippines offers generous discounts of P20,000 for the Isuzu Crosswind and P40,000 for the Isuzu D-Max.

On top of that, Isuzu Philippines also continues to run its Holiday Power Test Drives promo where a simple test drive of either the D-Max or the Alterra can get six lucky winners to take home either one 32-gigabyte Apple iPhone 3GS, one of two Sony PlayStation 3 units with 80-gigabyte hard drive, or one of three Canon IXUS 95IS digital cameras. Another batch of six winners who registered at can also take home a package consisting of one 120-gigabyte Apple iPod Video with two Skull Candy T1 headphones and accessories, one of two HP Mini netbooks or one of three Oakley sunglasses.

Those who actually buy an Isuzu vehicle get a chance to take home the best prizes: a 40-inch Samsung LCD TV with home theater package, one of two Canon EOS-450D digital SLR cameras, or one of three Nintendo Wiis with accessories.

Isuzu's Holiday Power Test Drives! promo runs until January 15, 2010.
