I am planning to buy my first brand new car in the next 2 months. I am still undecided between Honda Jazz 1.5V / Elantra 1.6 AT / Lancer EX 1.6 AT. Lahat kasi magand for me.
I will really appreciate and respect all your comments on what car is the best for me based on the aspects below. I hope you could help me out here.
By the way kakasal ko lang. I have no kids yet. I am an IT consultant and will use this car specially pag night shift lang ako and weekend dates with wifey. Gusto ko din try mga long drives. I am living in San Pedro Laguna and my office is at BGC. I am 27 years old kaya gusto ko ng car that is fun to drive at di mag sasawa after 5 yrs.
My first choice is JAZZ1.5V (Thai) pero ang ganda din kasi talaga nung 2 kaya naguguluhan ako. Hirap mamili. Mukang exciting din kasi yung paddleshift. :-)
Add ko lang din kung ano ba mas maraming available aftermarket accessories pamporma between the 3 cars?
So far Jazz pa lang na visit ko sa showroom. Very spacious and it has 4 disc breaks and 4 speakers but lack sa electronic features like audio controls on steering wheel, auto fold ng side mirrors and bluetooth para maging hands free while using my phone. I'll try to visit Hyundai and Mitsubishi at Alabang this Saturday.
Naka sked na din ako mag testdrive ng Jazz this saturday.
Pasok ang jazz sa halos lahat ng criteria mo pero IMO pang binata siya. I'd go with the Elantra if I were you. spacious sa loob mas comfortable tsaka no worries in the next 5 years kase 5 years warranty :D Tsaka believe me, you'll need the trunk space kapag nagkaanak ka ;) Sa tingin ko mas safe din highway since galing ka palagi ng laguna.
As for the lancer, ok din siya kaya lang due na for a model change in the next 2 or 3 years.
I would go with the jazz. It's the perfect sporty car which is also very spacious for a family car. It's space is even comparable to compact suvs. I would also think that it would be the quickest among the three cars you mentioned since it would be the lightest.
