    VIOS is cheaper by 200K but Accent will give your drivers more income.

    I'd go for the basic Vios M/T (Php553,000 for the J variant). The initial investment would be lower compared to buying an Accent (Php680,000+ a figure I got from a brochure handed to be by Hyundai The Fort) and would thus be easier to recoup. The Accent's higher purchase price would force you to either charge a higher "boundary" or you'll end up with a longer repayment period.

    Go for a Vios 1.3J... by the way how much is the base Avanza compact MPV(baby Innova)? That could be an alternative.

    Like what praetorian said, There's a new base model Accent priced at around P680K... but its still expensive.

    In the Avanza thread (http://tsikot.yehey.com/forums/showt...=25872&page=7), Toyota is reportedly pricing the bare-bones Avanza (steel rims, no power save for steering) at 560k to 580k. Hopefully, Toyota can even lower that some more for fleet buyers (i remember hearing from an SA before that buying 3 or more units is considered a fleet for discounting purposes).

    Cheers and good luck on your venture!
