    Innova will be a better choice. Top of the line innova is a killer. Go for a lower variant

    IMO as an average class citizen, piliin nalang ang lowest price sa mga SUV, total kung ano ang nagagawa ni toyota ay nagagawa naman din ni Mitsu, ni Honda or nang iba. except 4WD di kaya ni BR-V at ung topspeed at hatak pala magkakaiba pero i doubt magpapatakbo ka ng 145kph above with you family inside. yay...........
    Mostly 7 seaters vehicle ay pang long drive kasama ang pamilya (Maybe).
    ang mas interesado ako ay doon sa lifespan ng sasakyan at ung maintainance nito after 5 years, baka magsusunog lang ng Pera pagnagkataon, well if hindi issue ang pera ay piliin nalang ang pinakamahal na SUV para walang sisihan sa huli : )
    IMO pipiliin ko nalang ang readily available spareparts na kahit hindi sa CASA as makakabili ka : ) pagnagkabreakdown kasi it takes 3 to 4weeks even months na nakatengga ang sasakyan dahil naghihintay ng pyesa.

    For just a little over a million bucks, I find the base Innova to offer much value for money. 1GD engine same as the one in the top of the line Fort which costs twice as much is waaaaaay better than the overburdened L15 originally meant for tiny cars like the Jazz.

    The CVT has speed ratios. At a stop it will utilize a ratio thats is better than most torque converters hence its not overworked.

    Even in overtaking the engine will not go over 4000. Unless your really floor it or you go into S-mode.

    The 1.5 and cvt combination is really good. The pedal is light and you will be a light foot eventually because of the cvt. It does drop ratios depending on demand and its seemless.

    I suppose the CVT would help to an extent. But even though it's power output is considered good enough for a modern 1.5L engine, it would still be considered adequate at best when ferrying seven full sized adult passengers. I dare not call it underpowered when other 7 seater MPVs have had to make do with even less. However, if put side by side with an Innova 2.8J, given the similar pricing, I wouldn't even hesitate. 😁 The huge power difference aside, diesel benefits are just too much to ignore, especially nowadays when the difference between diesel and gas prices is at around P12-14/L.

    Sure there are advantages for the innova. what the brv offers is a sub 1m option for those who cant go over 1m. Some cant really stretch their budget above 1m.

    Innova and BR-V were our final options, and we settled for BR-V Navi because
    1. Fits our budget to purchase (own the unit), i.e. no bearing on gas consumption or maintenance.
    2. Fits our garage.
    3. Fits the road ways to our house.
    4. It's the newest 'kid on the block'.
    5. It's our first Honda (we had experienced Toyota and Ford already)
    6. Wanting to experience new tech like keyless entry, push start button.

    Bottomline, fits our needs. We could have spent a hundred thousand more and got Innova but we could have headache problems down the road.

    the only reason why I get the honda brv is IF i'm not afraid of old age diesel. sa sobra dumi diesel dito sa'tin, kahit anong gara car mo, talagang sablay performance. but that's me if I dont considering idling sa traffic, parang metro pa din sa taxi ang ubos nyan brv

    Hi, would also like to seek advice regarding the same choices, below are my thoughts:

    Situation: Current car, City, has 3 months baby that is why we are considering getting a new ride, it seems the city has not much room. Planning to keep the car for 8-10 yrs.

    BRV - considering the S variant
    pros: easier to drive, stability control is standard, high chance that it is reliable (currently have a 2010 city and no issues)
    cons: gas is more expensive, has less space
    other: Savings in SRP can be used for fuel but I think space will be compromised as we have a 3 months old baby and when traveling car will be occupied by me, wife, yaya, baby in car seat, mother in law, stroller and diaper bag.

    Innova - considering the E variant or should I go G (PPV price point)
    pros: diesel, space, based on what I read more comfortable than PPVs, easier to drive compared to PPVs? Toyota reliability? Toyota has cheapest maintenance cost among diesels?
    cons: maintenance cost of diesel engine (but savings in fuel can help), wifey is not sold on the looks, less features, no stability control (do we really need this for tall cars?)
    other: Is the issue regarding jerking already fixed on newer batches? Will I have a big adjustment coming from sedan?

    Fortuner - considering the G variant
    pros: diesel; for me has the best looks, wifey also likes the looks, Toyota reliability? Toyota has cheapest maintenance cost among diesels?
    cons: matagtag (is this really night and day compared to city? or is it overrated?), maintenance cost of diesel engine (but savings in fuel can help), less features, no stability control (do we really need this for tall cars?), tires are more enpensive
    other: Is the issue regarding jerking already fixed on newer batches? Will I have a big adjustment coming from sedan?

    Montero - considering the GLS variant
    pros: best speced engine, more features than Innova and Fortuner, from what I read it is the most comfortable PPV, easiest to drive among PPVs?
    cons: maintenance maybe is more expensive than toyota, rear and rear quater is not that appealing, no stability control (do we really need this for tall cars?), tires are more enpensive, reliability?
    other: is it reliable? family had the previous montero it seems that maintenance is expensive and after 5 yrs they sold it because of emerging issues, they had the GLS SE variant. Will I have a big adjustment coming from sedan?

    Everest - considering the Trend variant
    pros: also has the most comfortable ride, best speced among the choices, has almost complete safety features, we like the looks
    cons: maintenance maybe is more expensive than toyota, tires are more expensive, reliability
    others: still not sold of having a Ford for long term ownership, my brother already have the same variant. Will I have a big adjustment coming from sedan?

    Should I also consider CUVs or other PPVs? Max budget is 1.5M.

    Thanks in advance for the input.
