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'
Spot the difference
Earlier, we reported that the new Suzuki Ertiga had been launched in the Indian market sporting some aesthetic tweaks inside and out. Well, its more rugged sibling, the 2022 XL6 (known as the XL7 within our borders) has surfaced as well. The
In case you need to move cargo instead of passengers
Small cars and tons of cargo aren't usually a recipe for success. Sure, once in a while you might find yourself forced to pack a subcompact car to the brim just to make do. But it isn't an ideal solution.
*In India, anyway
Remember the Hyundai Casper? You guys fell in love with the thing on account of its quirky design and fashionable interior. Let's face it, though: The main draw there was its ridiculously affordable 13,850,000 Korean won (P590,000) starting
Yikes
Is a brand-new Suzuki Jimny still a goal you're working towards this year? Well, tough luck, because Suzuki Philippines has kicked off 2022 by jacking up the mini SUV's starting price.If you visit the Japanese car manufacturer's
Suzuki might want to take notes
Earlier this month, we reported that a handful of students from the Nihon Automobile College vocational school in Japan were hard at work building a five-door Suzuki Jimmy for the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon (TAS). At the time, though, images of
Let’s do this a bit differently this time
It looks like Toyota Motor Philippines will be starting 2022 with something small, a new subcompact in fact. As we reported earlier, the carmaker will be launching its much-anticipated Raize in the local market. It will compete in the lower subcompact-
Would you buy a version like this?
The Suzuki Jimny is one hell of a car-so much so that we made it our Car of the Year for 2019. Its main draw is how it manages to squeeze in incredible off-road capability into such a tiny package.
What does your P879,000 get you?
There's a confusing number of Chinese car brands, both inside and outside the country, but that hasn't stopped some manufacturers from trying to make things more confusing by creating more brands. Though in the case of Changan, creating the Kaicene
In this case, size doesn’t matter
When someone mentions overlanding, the first cars that usually come to mind are gargantuan trucks or SUVs. These mansions on wheels are nice and all, but their capability can also be limited by their sheer size and weight. That, and we think
Small cars are a Honda forte, so this is looking promising
We know there are still people out there (us included) who are excited about the all-new Civic's local arrival later this month, but let's be honest: Sedans have been increasingly displaced by crossovers-especially pint-sized entry-level crossovers-
*The price in its home market of Korea
Earlier this month, Hyundai caught our attention with the reveal of a brand-new mini SUV called the Casper. It's a promising little thing with a fun design and an ultra-compact form factor that would be perfect for urban driving
Looks rather friendly, doesn’t it?
The crossovers never stop. Just when we thought 'SUV' had been distilled into its smallest possible size, along comes another dinkier, more urban-focused faux-by-four to prove us wrong.But how could we be mad when it looks this ickle
Take your pick
So, it's been half a year of 'new normal' motoring now. Bad news? The COVID-19 pandemic doesn't seem like it'll be winding down any time soon. The good? Well, it's improved enough to at least be able
It’s only a matter of time
If you ask us, we think it's unlikely that Honda Cars Philippines (HCPI) won't be bringing in another seven-seat offering to replace the now-discontinued Mobilio.There's a reason major brands are doubling down on the third row
Would you like to see this locally as well?
The Suzuki Jimny is a vehicle built with the off-road purist in mind. Well, purists, as well as budget-minded off-roaders and fans of cars with small form factors. It's not surprising, considering the vehicle's no-nonsense package
Which of these two seven-seat Suzukis do you think is the better deal?
It's time for yet another comparo, people. Today, we've handpicked two seven-seaters to go against each other, but this time around, we stray from the usual spec-sheet brawl to go back to our cross-segment comparo.With this
A proper-looking mini SUV
Is Honda cooking up a proper competitor to the Toyota Rush and Mitsubishi Xpander Cross? It definitely looks like it.The Japanese car manufacturer has just revealed a brand-new mini SUV concept in Indonesia, showing off seven seats, as well as
An MPV on stilts?
Right now, the Suzuki Ertiga is the bread and butter of the Japanese carmaker's Philippine operations. With the seven-seat MPV accounting for almost a quarter of the brand's local sales, Suzuki Philippines managed to snag a 6.3% market
It’s going up for sale
Part of the novelty of driving something like the Suzuki Jimny is its size. Its ultra-compact design doesn't just make it light and easy to maneuver-it makes it cute AF, too. The only real downside to owning something this
