    Actually kasama sa choice ko before ang mazda 3 and civic rs. Kaso kasi brz na yung alternate car ko so parang hassle parehas low ground clearance yung kotse ko.

    The XV is spacious enough for daily use. Though rear passengers don't get as much space as in an Altis or Civic, it's still bigger than most subcompacts and many make do with subcompacts for 5 passengers. Malapad naman ang XV, maliit nga lang legroom.

    Also, it's pointless to have a pickup if you won't use your bed. Been there, done that. You'll be driving around with an extra 1 meter of length thats utterly useless since you can't put stuff anyway. Your car essentially becomes a 2 seater as you put your bags and other luggage in the back seat.

    Turning radius is awful too. Such a hassle in tight streets and parking lots.

    A sports coupe will never be as practical as a compact sedan. Since you already have a fun sporty car, a more sedate compact car will be better for a daily drive. No need for a Civic RS, the Civic 1.8L will be more than enough for a daily car.

    However, if ground clearance is a must for you, then go with the XV. At least, you only have one casa to go for maintenance. If you can spend a bit more, the Forester is a more practical vehicle than the XV.

    Thank you for all the inputs. Nakapag decide na ko na i'll just get a pickup. I might get the hilux G 4x2 AT instead. Nagustuhan ko interior niya and I think the price difference niya sa navara is worth it naman. Mas comfortable nga lang ng konti ride ni navara. I'll just buy a cargo bed cover so I can put some of my things at the back.

    Sir, Medyo manggugulo lang ako. My daily drive is NP300 Navara EL MT, wala naman akong problema for everyday use since maganda talaga ride kahit icompare pa sa previous gen Fort. Except nagkaroon lang ng problema (may abnormal na tunog) sa steering column assy pero under warranty naman. I chose Navara at that time since budget is 1M and I need a high ground clearance vehicle. Pero kung budget is around 1.3 M, baka gusto nyong iconsider yung 2.5 MUX LSA, nasa ganung price range kasi yung model na 'to. Thanks.

    I'm a one personal vehicle person and no regrets in getting a pick-up as a daily drive.
