I was supposed to recommend the Avanza, but you already scratched it off your list. you might want to consider stretching your budget for a Honda H-RV, B-RV, Mitsubishi ASX, or Mazda CX-3.

Quote from: mbenz204 on September 28, 2016, 10:40:21 AMI have both the previous Altis and the Civic and PMS is almost the same. Why not consider a Toyota Innova J?That was on the table, but even the basic unit is still more expensive than the EcoSport.
Quote from: DTNS on September 28, 2016, 04:57:12 PMif high ground clearance and ease of maintenance are your top criteria, consider AUVs like an Isuzu Crosswind or Mitsubishi Adventure.
Quote from: iamstorm on September 24, 2016, 12:20:53 AMYeah, medyo masikip nga sya, even compared to a Vios or most in the sedan segment. Pero important kasi yung height para sa amin eh. I think we can make do with the space. Yung Avanza, grabe naman kasi, I drove one before, I really hated the experience. Manual na walang hatak, and everything felt cheap. I've also asked cabbies who drive regular non-LPG converted units, usually sabi nila malakas daw sa gasolina, they prefer a Vios.Ang concern ko naman sa Honda, baka naman mahal i-maintain. From what I understand, Hondas are one of the most expensive cars to maintain. And from what I know of the prices, super stretch naman for the HRV, BRV, ASX and CX3. Aren't they in the Php1.2M range? The Ecosport is less than Php900,000.
Quote from: DTNS on September 30, 2016, 07:40:57 PMif you're limited by budget and by the "finance officer's decision", check out the 2nd hand market. I'm sure there are plenty of SUVs you can buy with your budget.

Quote from: DTNS on October 04, 2016, 06:14:09 PMlooks like your wife is dead-set on an EcoSport. wala ba talagang leeway sa choices or sa budget?
