    not an suv though.. but what about subaru legacy? how much would the srp be? a station-wagon with all-wheel drive. it has the space and the awd drive-train.

    5-seater lang po ang legacy. and it's at 2M or so. that'd be the fastest on these 2 pages but i don't think it's what you're looking for. that'd be the sorento 2wd na lang yata ang pasok sa budget at specs ninyo.

    kung mabagalan kayo perhaps you can do bolt-on mods and chip-up lalo kung tapos na warranty. i heard there's a carens who CLAIMS to have smoked a WRX with just a chip-up after all (hehe. di yata alam nung WRX na nakikipag karera yun carens sa kanya eh).

    Pag-isipan mo ng maigi ah... Sure ka you would be wanting a gasoline SUV with 4WD? Diesels are not as bad as you might think. We have the first and most problematic car that came with CRDi in this country and it has been running in tip-top condition for the whole of the nine years it's lived with no signs of failing aside from the usual wear and tear. With an average gas mileage of 5-7km/L city (with the traffic conditions here, it'll probably be more 5 than 7 ), the gas pump would soon be your best friend. We have a 2.4L i-VTEC here and I've seen how quickly the needle goes down, especially in spirited driving and heavy traffic conditions. And if the gas Sorento is really as fast as bro niky points out, you'd probably be doing it a lot. BTW, why do you insist on getting the 4x4 by the way? Do you go off road a lot?

    ^ Our 2.4L CR-V can do more 7 than 5 ;)

    Usually 7.3km/L. Minsan di mo maiisip na matipid din ang Honda kahit papano.

    Ang Hyundai / Kia medyo malakas lang talaga sa gas. Pero yung GC 3.8 V6 sakto lang, di nalalayo sa FC ng Tucson 2.0 Theta II at mas matipid pa sa Tucson 2.4 Theta II 4WD (So ibig sabihin malakas sa gas yung Tucson)

    Hmm~ more or less magkasingtipid pala yung CRV sa Trooper ah, if it gets an average of 7+km/L. Mas matipid yung GC sa 2.4 Theta II 4WD? Well that's new. And since alam na malakas sa gas ang Tucson 2.4 Theta II 4WD, eh di lalong mas malakas sa gas ang Sorento with the same engine? Kaya iniisip ko lang, mas matipid pa kaya yung Sorento 3.5V6 sa 2.4?

    Tucson 2.0 AT isn't bad. 6-8 km/l in the city... cousin gets similar fuel economy on the highway to his old 1.6 AT.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    If your family is uncompromising on the powerplant, seating, drive, and budget, Captiva is your ONLY choice. Kasi both the Sorento and Fortuner gas are 2WD only. You can add them back if you're only after an SUV LOOK. If, on the other hand, your priority is the seating of 7 and still going with the gas engine, your horizon expands to include the MPVs like the Grand Livina, Innova, and Fuzion -- mas comfortable pa yung extra 2-3 people.

    Kung ang flexible naman ay yung budget, then you can add the Explorer for an added 1M and maybe even the Tribeca for an added 1.5M. Just beware of the gas consumption.

    So unless you're OK with the Captiva and would like more input, you need to specify which among your previous specs you're flexible on -- fuel type, # of seats, driven wheels, or budget.

    There is a V6 Montero Sport in the Middle East, but they're not being sold in the South East Asian market... you'd have to import a Dubhai unit... and you won't be able to do that for just 1.4m.
    Quoting myself... have to eat my hat. Mitsubishi has indeed brought out a V6 Montero... supposedly... but it's just the 3.0 Outlander engine, not the more expensive Pajero V6... and it is indeed 1.4m.

    Egads... who's going to buy that? Isn't the diesel already fast enough?

    What the... Is there anywhere we can read more about this? Siguro they brought in the smaller V6 for lesser gas consumption. Yung 1.4M ba 4x4 na o 4x2 lang? They probably did this to counter the Fortuner 2.7VVTi.
