    Maybe in Oriental Mindoro. But as far as I know there isn't any dealership here. Thanks for the link. I didn't there were Hyundai and Kia dealerships in Calapan. Speaking of Hyundai, is there still a discount on the Santa Fe? Back then the lower variant was being sold around 1.3M I think?
    It would be a good buy if may stock pa sana with that discount.
    But all units are sold out na daw.
    If may bagong stocks, expect it to be priced at SRP with only 200kish discount.

    Here's things to consider:
    -She doesn't like sedans because she says it's too low and/or small.
    -We live in the province so there's no heavy traffic.
    -Something easy to manage would be better since neither my mon or me know that much about cars
    -7-seaters is not that important since there's only two of us in our household

    Currently she's eyeing the Ford Territory Titanium. Is that a good choice and what would be a better alternative? Also, what do you guys think about buying 2nd-hand cars at the same price point to get a better, albeit slightly used, vehicle?

    Thanks
    I'm also presently looking at the Territory for my wife & daughter, both are first time drivers.

    Basically, at 1.4M

    The TOTL Rush/Xpander/BR-V/Ertiga etc are cheaper, pero you wont get the safety features ng Territory (sorry, did not add the Coolray as madami pa rin taong di comfortable sa "Geely")

    If you get an Entry level diesel A/T naman (Innova/Mu-X) - not only do you loose the "safety features" you also loose the reverse camera!

    For me, naiilang din ako sa daming electronics ng Territory, + the turbo

    Pero knowing na di naman ako gagamit nung car everyday, feeling ko malaking bagay sa new driver yung 360 camera, emergency braking, lane departure warning and hill launch assist

    I'm hoping after 10 years na magsisimulang magloko yung electronics ng Territory, by that time, problem na sya ng next user

    Corolla Cross 1.8G kumpleto sa active at passive safety. Wala nga lang advanced driver assist.

    Maganda din matuto ang new driver na walang ADAS, para maaga ma-develop ang full concentration sa daan. Baka nakakalito ang warnings at driver intervention ng ADAS plus complex ang electronics nito.

    Okay naman ang exeperience ng iba sa ADAS?
    (Hindi pa pala ako nakapagdrive ng sasakyan na may ADAS, hehe.)

    The base HRV is around 1.3M while the top end model is 1.5M. Itís a bit pricey for a FWD crossover based off the Jazz.

    First car ba and live in a province? Better get any of the japanese brand pickup. Be it Hilux/Strada/Navara/Dmax. Sigurado may sukli ka pa if you opt for the mid a/t variant.

    IMHO, i like other brands such as the Territory, XV etc.

    However, for the other concerns of the would be car owner, i will go for the Toyota Innova. Practicality at its finest.

    Dmax pinaka matipid. Almost 40 kpl, or so they say.

    based on the reviews I've read... pwede naman pataying yung warnings
