Anung pinaka ok sa tatlo? Panalo sa looks ang elantra. Maganda ang toys ni fiesta. May engine push start button si altis.
First time owner here. Ung sa space medyo isantabi muna. Ung riding comfort, driving dynamics at fuel consumption and performance ang habol ko here. sana makatulong kayo.tnks

Riding comfort: Altis<Elantra<Fiesta
Driving dynamics: Fiesta<Elantra<Altis
Fuel consumption: Elantra<Fiesta<Altis
Depends on your priority na. But I personally find the Fiesta too small. The Altis I find too expensive for a 1.6L 4 speed A/T car. The Elantra, for me, is the most balanced choice among the three.

btw, i have a fiesta myself. but for you, as a first time car owner, i would prolly recommend the altis na lang. just to be on the safe side of things. i dont think magsisisi ka if you buy one.

Riding comfort: Elantra>Altis=Fiesta. The new Altis is stiffer than before. The Fiesta S has stiffer springs than the Trend... prefer the Trend. The Elantra is better than both, but not by that much.
Driving dynamics: Fiesta>Elantra>Altis. Agreed.
Fuel consumption: Unknown. The Fiesta isn't that great in traffic, but it's better than the Accent 1.6 4AT... the Elantra 1.6 6AT might be better than the Accent 4AT. the 4AT Corolla 1.6 is actually pretty economical. You'd have to get all three together to find out which is best.
Performance: Elantra>=Fiesta>Altis. Elantra's transmission is more responsive than the Fiesta's, and the engine is terrifically punchy. Fiesta's dual-clutch is oddly hesitant and slow off-the-line.
Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

Clarify lang ako. The "<" used in my opinion is originally intended to mean the "greater than/less than" sign. But then nabaliktad yata ang nasa utak ko dun sa tinype ko. So let's regard the "<" in my opinion as arrow nalang. Comes of not doing good in math class before. Oh well...
I rated the Fiesta the least comfortable partly also because I figured the interior space (lesser space, less comfortable) into my analogy as well. The Fiesta's dominance in the performance department is generally accepted naman. Fuel consumption naman, I placed Elantra first because the 6 speed A/T has H-Matic so you can make it shift at lower shift points, which is something that can't be done in the Fiesta.

I would go with an Altis over the Fiesta anytime. I'm not so used to the current Elantra...

Since it's going to be your first car, go for Altis since it has been time-tested. But if you want to gamble, go for Elantra. Try to visit Elantra thread too and see for yourself.

Btw, your categories are relative to the user of the car.
