    As far as I remember from my folks in the west the Nissan Rouge, and Juke were good ones. Especially the ugly and fun Juke because it has Nissan's new and critic popular direct injection turbocharged engine- the MR16DDT... it's as fast as a Hyundai G.C 2.0 T in a quarter mile and it's an SUV!! USDM CR-V is has good consumer reviews as well.

    Mas mabilis pa sa Sportage 2.0SX T-GDi?

    Yes. As far as I remember, both G.C T and Juke run low 15s on stock. ;)

    Nissan Juke: Acceleration

    (With MR16DDT engine only)

    • 0–60 mph (97 km/h): 6.8 s
    • 1/4 mile (~400 m): 15.2 s at 91.9 mph
    • Top speed: 125 mph

    Yun, low 15s nga on a quarter mile. What's the quarter mile time kaya of that Sportage?

    But even if it has that big hp numbers I doubt it will have huge quarter mile time advantage. But w/ the Juke's 188hp, G.C T's 210hp, and the Sportage SX T's whopping 271hp! Who knows? But yun nga lang the Juke and G.C are more "tuneable" of course for higher hps. hehe

    Wow, thanks for all the replies - looks like I have a fair bit of research and reading to do! Will definitely be feeding all of this back to my sister - please do keep the discussion going, it's great to have a number of different ideas and leads floating around. I'll update the thread with how things are going, as soon as my sister gets settled in and starts going to various dealers

    she should also look into practicing or taking a refresher course since driving here is very different. i know so many fellow pinoys who failed the tests multiple times before passing.

    the scion xb gen 1 is so hard to get. i found one potential deal and already pending when i inquired.

    that nissan juke is getting a lot of rave reviews here, i might try one and see if wife may be interested .

    US car dealers are generous for test drives so I highly recommend your sister to test drive all her options. But I would recommend the Juke since she will be driving alone and it's easier to park and maneuver.
