    Hi,

    Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on this.. We are in the market for a new cuv but could not decide on which unit to get. If possible, i would like to ask for your help in listing down the pros and cons for each. A few months ago mas gusto namin un xtrail kya lng when the facelifted cx5 was released mas nagle-lean na kami with cx5. Pero to be honest di pa rin namin nkita un forester.

    Basically we are looking for the unit na pinaka bang for the buck kya pwede combination ng price, technology, comfort etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dun sa isang thread, the Forester 2.0i is at P1.25M. A real bargain, unahan nalang kayo dun sa unit ;)

    for that budget I would go olx for the 2nd hand 2013 rav4. 3 units available. all 3 are under 20k odometer, engine and transmission are 95% probably ok. abit over priced but you can haggle if you will pay cash. steam wash detail should clean those cars to like new.

    If space is a key consideration, the new X-Trail is bigger than the rest of the competition. It even comes standard with 3rd row seats (though limited to small people). It is as big as the current Santa Fe.

    Though if I have to choose, I'd go with the Forester.

    I'd avoid 2nd hand considering some are flooded units. Even if you have them checked thoroughly there's still a risk. One reason some cars have low mileage is because it takes a few months to "restore" a flooded vehicle good enough to sell.

    Not sure if Kia still sells the 5-seater FWD variant of the Sorento CRDI but it sits right around the prices of the options listed above. A bigger body compared to other CUV, a potent CRDi engine, lots of cargo space, and a bit more frugal on fuel (diesel) but the interior is a bit bare compared to its Korean brother (Santa Fe).

    another reason why the mileage is low is because they probably replaced the instrument panel. most instrument panels don't work anymore after being flooded. so most probably that 20k mileage is 20k from the time they replaced the panel.
