    Nagpila na ako para sa hyundai tucson but yung problem is that I am still very far in the line along number 86 which means di pa sure kung with in 3 months makukuha so I am thinking of getting ready namagatras sa tucson and buy other SUV/CUV and I need you guys to help me decide.

    my choices are:
    1. Honda CRV AT 1.3m- actually mas gusto ko ung design ng CRV compared to tucson is because mas macho sya para sa akin, safe and reliable and its a honda but ung downside is that in the near future lalabas na ung bagong generation around 2012? And compare to other cars in the list and tucson, siya ata yung may pinakamahinang engine.

    2. Nissan X-trail CVT AT 1.3m- malakas ung engine and offroad capability, thats all I like, di ko ganu nagustohan yung interior and exterior design hehe

    3. Toyota Fortuner AT Dsl 1.4m- what I like about it, its diesel and mataas para iwas baha, but downside is that pansin ko is mataas nga ung clearance pero kapag nasaloob ka ng car mababa ung bubong natatamaan ung ulo ko pero pede ko siguro adjust ung seat. Engine ng Fortuner I am not sure how powerful siya, any thoughts?

    4. Santa Fe-?

    What else can you guys add to this hypothesis

    Other SUV/CUV I've checked out that I didn't like:
    Montero, ASX (pangit para sa akin ung interior nila, sorry to mitsubishi owners)

    No power on the 2.5L D4d. Same engine as the Innova. On the Innova you can deal with the lag kasi relatively magaan lang sya but with the added weight and big tires of the Fort the turbo lag is unbearable. You will see a lot of these "cruising" on the NLEX. Interior is very small in relation to its size.

    You still want potent Korean diesel without the wait, look no further than the Tucson's bigger sister!

    That's the problem with ladder frame vehicles they look big and imposing outside pero once nasa loob ka na the floor is high so masikip. Try looking at the Montero Sport and the Everest ganun din, the floor is high so masikip at tatama na ulo mo sa bubong! Even supposedly smaller vehicles like the CR-V which is a CUV are roomier! Same can be said with the Santa Fe not as imposing outside pero more imposing inside...

    I definitely agree santa fe is alot roomier than montero etc but I've heard that in the near future its getting a major redesign, around 2012, same with the crv, which I would probably want to wait for if its true

    The Toyota Fortuner is equipped with the 2.5-liter 2KD-FTV engine with common rail diesel (D-4D) technology, which produces 102 HP at 3600 rpm....
    To simplify how underpowered this particular engine is;
    A typical 1.5L Gas fed Honda Jazz has 117 HP..... 15 HP more than the Fort...
    And a Diesel Fed Hyundai Accent 1.5L CRDI has 108HP... 6 more than the Fort....

    Or a Santa Fe 2.2 R-eVGT which has 197 HP... Now the Fort would really look pathetic!

Which SUV/CUV to go with?
