    How do you convert L/100km into the more common Km/L unit of measurement? . In L/100km, the lower the number, the better

    Just reverse the figures and perform the division, i.e. take 100 and divide the L/100km figure by it, and you get km/L.

    E.g. 5 L/100km <=> 100km / 5L

    100km divided by 5L = 20km / L.

    P.S. There's a reason why car manufacturers prefer the L / 100km figure: it makes computing trip cost intuitive. In the example above, 5L / 100km can simply be multiplied by the pesos per liter price to get trip cost.

    E.g. at Php55 / L:

    (5L/100km) times Php55 / L = Php 275 / 100km

    EDIT: I have just called Chevy Alabang regarding the HU upgrade. Exclusive for Juno Cars group (Alabang, Pasig, Shaw, and Laguna) yun, and for the LT variant, leather seats, DVD/GPS HU and headrest monitors. May additional 120k to the 1,368,888 pesos na SRP.
    *steer, para sa'yo itong quoted post ko.

    I normally use gasoline powered vehicles so I don't think I could compare it.


    It's definitely better than the 4x2 Montero sport...

    hmmm... but the NVH of the Montero sport didn't bother me coz that was what I expected from diesel powered engines.

    so I don't think NVH levels of the Trailblazer should be a factor when deciding to buy this vehicle.

    but my tolerance level might be different from yours, I guess it would be best for you to request a test drive from Chevy dealer.

    if i may ask mga sir...mas sulit na ba LTZ 2.8 4x4 kaysa 2013 sta. fe 4x2?
    sensya na.... wala ako alam masyado sa sasakyan kaya dito na lang nagtanong..
    sir xpac, just recently ganyan din dilema ko, choosing bet sta fe or TBZ, or even Fortuner.
    To tell you mas madali mag decide which among the PPVs (TBZ, Fortuner etc) to choose than
    to pick between TBZ (PPV) and Ste Fe (crossover).

    There's just too many differing factors to consider.
    to mention some;
    1. driving comfort
    2. the kind of road conditions you frequently go
    3. driving a car-like vs truck-like
    4. toughness (wala p tyo masabi re TBZ, but the way they positioned it
    as a very capable off-roader means a lot. Sabi nila medyo mahina Sta Fe
    (Hyundai in general) sa pang ilalim.
    5. Fuel consumption? (shouldn't be an issue, IMO)
    and many more...

    But as for me, I'm pretty sure will go with Trailblazer, based on factors
    relevant to me.
