We test the workhorse variant of the BT-50 range
We were suitably impressed by the Isuzu-Mazda BT-50 collab when we drove it at the Mazda Philippines HQ. But driving a truck around an empty lot and actually living with it for a few days are two totally different things.
This, or the Toyota Avanza?
Ah, yes. This was back in 2018. Four years and a global pandemic later, and the Mitsubishi Xpander has undergone a refresh. It's a relatively substantial one, too-at least if you aren't too focused on the MPV's mechanicals.
Is it a worthy competitor in the local subcompact sedan segment?
For years, the local subcompact sedan segment has been dominated by mainly two nameplates: the Toyota Vios and the Honda City. To this day, the two cars are still some of the top-of-mind choices for car buyers on a budget-
Time to see what this popular little thing can do
While Chinese-built budget crossovers are selling like halo-halo on a hot day, Toyota-which pioneered the crossover concept-doesn't have a budget crossover of its own. Thankfully, corporate partner Daihatsu just happens to have a cheap crossover Toyota can
The Mazda CX-30 looks sharp, but what exactly is the point of this crossover?
In the land of pickup-based SUVs, crossovers have an uphill battle to face. Crossovers typically do not have the ground clearance, seating capacity, or perceived robustness these truck-based vehicles have to offer. It's reflected in sales, too. Remember the

Whenever someone looking to buy a new car asks me what the best subcompact crossover in our market is, I always respond with a question of my own: "Do you really need one, or will a sedan suffice?"You see, while most
It has the ability to win over the critics

There used to be a time when the Chevrolet Trailblazer warranted consideration among the country's top midsize SUVs. Sure, it wasn't going to touch the Toyota Fortuner or Mitsubishi Montero Sport in terms of unit sales-but it had a
This compact SUV’s definitely worth a second look
Subcompact crossovers have been the talk of the town for quite a while now, and rightfully so. The most popular models from this segment are some of the best value-for-money vehicles you can find.However, because of how big this

It's a new era for Chevrolet locally. Former brand staples like the Colorado pickup and the Trailblazer midsize SUV are no longer listed on the carmaker's official Philippine website, and in their place under the spotlight rise two new offerings
Is this a good generation for Honda’s compact sedan?
