This isn’t just for soccer moms
You know what? You can think minivans are uncool. We're perfectly okay with that-we'll just take our seven seats, spacious interior, and feature-filled cabin someplace else. And no, you can't hitch a ride with us.Frankly, with
We really wish this would launch here
For the most part, we dig pickups that carry a more popping appearance. The Ford Ranger, for example, looks pretty good in orange, and the Toyota Hilux really stands out in red. In the case of the Hyundai Santa Cruz's more
This thing has one distinct advantage
To be honest, if we purchased vehicles solely for getting around, not as many motorists would be throwing premiums at midsize SUVs and pickups. Instead, most of us would be behind the wheel of something like this.What is it? This tiny
And there's a very good chance it's coming here
This is the Hyundai Stargazer, and yes, we think it's coming to the Philippine market to try and conquer the local MPV segment.Why do we say this? Well, a couple of weeks ago, we were present for the official introduction

The all-new Hyundai Tucson has been spotted in the local setting well before its scheduled launch in July 2022. Images of the South Korean compact crossover were shared with us by an anonymous source, and they were taken at a recent
This or the Casper?
It's not exactly rocket science why the Toyota Raize is such a hit among local car buyers. Decent ground clearance, city-friendly dimensions, and an affordable price tag? That's about as surefire a formula as mass-market cars come around
We compare it to the Suzuki Celerio
While the Casper isn't part of the initial lineup of Hyundai Motor Philippines, we still hope to see the pint-sized crossover at some point. This stylish mini SUV is the perfect alternative to the typical A-segment hatchback.Today, we'

Who needs a house?
It's kind of hard getting back into the swing of city life when you've just spent your Holy Week vacation out of town. Can anyone else relate? Sort of makes you wish you could just pack up and hit the
Bring it in, please
It's been a while since we've heard anything from Hyundai on the Philippine front? Fret not, though, because word is distribution for the South Korean brand will soon be revived under new management.If this is the case, we hope
