    Observation lang. Their line up are pretty boring. Bawal ata sa kanila yung medyo exciting and fun to drive, unless you're paying upwards of 2 million.

    i believe so.
    toyota ph probably doesn't want to be saddled with a model that's a commercially failing proposition because it has few takers.

    My 2c: In times of uncertainty like this pandemic, Toyota's reputation for reliability and durability probably trumps everything else in most buyers' list of priorities.

    Like the yaris, corolla cross, and Rav 4... Come to think of it, ang patok dito sa atin yung mga rebadged Daihatsu.

    "if the price is right."
    as long as the badge is also 'right'.

    one can get away with many things, if one is at the top of the heap.

    "toyota's worstseller might well be another brand's bestseller."
    heh heh.

    tama....tsikoteers think they represent the majority of car buyers...nope

    the majority doesnt looks for "fun to drive" vehicles....they only need a vehicle to nring them from point A to B....

    the majority doesnt look to replace their car every 3 to 5 years....durability is a must (kahit perception lang)

    But anyway, I heard there's a corolla hatch hybrid with CVT that has 181 hp being sold in other countries... and its pretty enjoyable to drive. Bawal yun sa Toyota PH diba? The Toyota Juggernaut Continues ...
    If bawal corolla hatch hybrid for our market, why TMP sells corolla altis hybrid here anyway? Same lang sila ng hybrid engine possibly..

    My thoughts will be, the hatch versions of corolla wasn't built in thailand instead it was assembled in japan or in europe means mas mahal pag binenta dito due to the taxes..

    Right now ang dami ng hiluxes na nakikita ko sa labas.. mas malaki ang ratio nila compared sa mga ranger, strada, navara, dmax..

    how many times have i personally heard it?
    "toyota bilin mo. matibay siya."

    it's probably the one brand that sells itself, just by the mention of the name.

    an auto journalist once wrote,
    "...the envy of the automotive world".

    4x4. jimny. walang ganito si toyota - fully agree on this

    base 4x4 pickup. strada GL has power windows. hilux J are hand crank - goodluck sa cost of parts, and based on experiences from owners who use pickups for business (always driven by company drivers), mas matibay talaga hi-lux.

    MPV. avanza/rush suck. many good options out there: br-v XL7 ertiga etc - no comment here

    crossover. HR-V. defintely not getting a corolla cross - no comment here either

    now i'm wondering how toyota sells so many cars LOL
    LC300 and Alphard wala din competition.
