    the ground clearance of the wrx is no more advantageous than the miata for the philippine road set up. the need for awd in the streets of metromanila is non existent, it's actually a disadvantage because awd makes fuel consumption worse especially in metromanila traffic. the only advantage of the wrx over the mx5 is it's power, 5 seats and boot space.

    I saw plenty during my visit in 2013. On our way from the MoA to the Global City, there was a downpour at Pasay City(?) which caused a construction area to get very muddy. Some vehicles were slipping pretty bad. Then, there was minor flooding near the Bamboo Organ and also somewhere in Cavite, toward Imus, maybe.

    The Miata's nimbleness won't matter in Manila's traffic snarls which also makes it pointless.

    Both cars excel away from the metropolitan area in which case the TC should probably consider a different set of cars....if traffic in Manila is a big concern.

    The Miata seems best for places like where I am which gets over 300 days of nothing but sunshine.

    I like the choice. If my kids are all grown up and moved out, it's one of the cars I'd consider.
