    Imported ang Peugeot from France. Mahal ang tax and it's being marketed as a premium brand here, hence premium prices.


    SMART cars used to be made by Swatch and Mercedes. Don't know if its still in production or who is making them. Mahal sila, around Php800k for something which seats only two, has a tiny motor, and has virtually no parts available locally.


    Sealed beams are old school lamps common to cars of the 70's. They were required in the U.S. for quite some time. See how Mercedes has to 'downgrade' their Halogen equipped vehicles to accomodate sealed beams.
    Halogen (flush mount):

    ang haba na ng thread na ito, halos lahat na yata ng mini's nasabi or natanong na.. You would do yourself a favor by going to the recommended car's or mini-car's showrooms and test driving one yourself. Only you can decide what you want and besides its your money and you'll be the one driving it.What the posters here can offer is only their opinion (which may differ from yours)

    Sealed beams lang ang available na headlamps nung araw. Hanggang ngayon yan ang headlamp ng jeepney at tricycle.

    Nung naimbento na ang halogen, walang rules ang U.S. regarding them kaya [out of katamaran siguro] they just required everyone to install sealed beams. Meron nang existing regulations ngayon, hindi na required ang sealed beams.

    daewoo went bankrupt because of poor build quality and generally shitty cars. since GM was their partner, when they went belly-up GM bought their car plant and continues to turn out Chevy Aveos, Sparks, and Optras for the third world market. I hear the Optra is a hot seller in Eastern Europe. Eh Comrade?

    as per Kia, it was a victim of the 1997 asian currency crisis. Hyundai actually was forced by the Korean government to buy / bail out Kia kasi maraming mawawalan ng trabaho. So Kia and Hyundai are now the same company with the same products (e.g. Kia Picanto and Hyundai Getz are the same underneath, same as Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson).

    hindi naman ito nakakasama, it's called "platform sharing" and lots of companies do it. e.g. the Ford Focus, Mazda3, and Volvo S40 are all based on the C1 platform. the Ford Fusion, Mazda6, and Mazda CX7 are also based on the same platform.

    The Aveo is also sold in Europe. A place where you can't buy a Vios or a City (though the Jazz aka Fit is available). Daewoos are also available in Australia and in Europe.

    Daewoo in the Philippines was handled by a small company in the south called 'Transfarm'. They were then selling Opel-derived Daewoos which were not really a solid value and soon closed shop. They sold the Racer/Espero/Cielo/Price models, btw.

    Daewoo will soon start producing the Chevrolet Captiva for the European and Asian markets. It is a derivative of the GM Theta platform which forms the foundation of the Chevrolet Equinox (a product designed for the US market).
