    I do agree. Kona after discount.
    However, my gut feel is that this model will be axed by HARI.

    Thank you again!
    How about a pickup? It will meet your needs for ground clearance and water wading capabilities. Most of the small crossovers in the market are similar or just a tad higher compared to compact cars in ground clearance.

    Why? Its selling pretty well. I’ve been seeing quite a number of Konas lately. My brother is actually planning on buying one.

    This is true... plus exempted yata sila sa new excise tax...
    I think your 1.1M have a lot of choices, some old stocks have big discounts...

    You see it now, but once HARI starts jacking up the price and removing features, sales will dip. And when it does, it will be on the chopping board.
    i10, grand i10, i20.

    Again. This is gut feel so i may be wrong/right.

    If kona made it. Then the upcoming from mazda will be just behind it.

    I would get a diesel pickup as well if the budget is 1+ M. Pickups are just so practical in the Philippines, particularly in those flood-prone areas.

    Plus, you’ll feel confident driving different parts of the country.

    It depends. Its good on the highway. If he lives in the city, pick up trucks are a pain in the arse to drive. Not to mention they are impractical if you have other passengers since luggage room is nonexistent unless you buy that accessory you put in the bed. We own a Ford Ranger but we mostly use it for highway driving and for transporting big items.
