    Toyota GR 86

    Turn heads, not only at the party but also on the road, by driving a Toyota GR 86. The car has achieved iconic status and a cult following thanks to the nameplate’s rich history.

    It boasts a proportionate mix of curves and angles that make it a car that looks as good as it drives. The two-door, four-seater coupe flaunts an aerodynamic body paired with a set of either 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels.

    Toyota gave it a rich color palette but since you’re attending a Christmas party, why not drive one finished in Ignition Red.

    And don’t worry about coming late, the Toyota GR 86 is fitted with a 2.4-liter gasoline mill mated to either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission. The setup sends power to the rear wheels and makes approximately 233 to 238 horsepower (hp) with 250 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque.

    Honda CR-V

    Those feeling lucky the night of their Christmas parties might want to consider bringing a Honda CR-V.

    The latest iteration of the sport utility vehicle (SUV) from Honda offers a generous amount of space that can cater to all the prizes one might win at corporate party raffles. Thanks to 581 liters of boot area, fortunate party-goers can fit almost any prize from big ones such as air fryers and microwave ovens, to small ones like portable power banks and water bottles.

    In addition, the all-new Honda CR-V offers seats for seven, which means work buddies can ride in it to and from the party.

    Of course, the Honda CR-V also comes in a red color dubbed Ignite Red Metallic.

    Suzuki S-Presso

    Parking is always a challenge when attending Christmas parties, especially when the event is held in some of the more populated venues in the metro. That said, one of the better cars to bring is none other than the Suzuki S-Presso.

    As the name suggests, the Suzuki S-Presso offers a compact form factor with an overall length of 3,565 millimeters (mm), an overall width of 1,520mm, and an overall height of 1,657mm. Despite its small size, the S-Presso still boats commendable ground clearance at 180mm making it a suitable service that can brave almost all urban terrain.

    Looking to look in theme, the S-Presso from Suzuki can be had in Fire Red.

    Chery Tiggo 8 Pro e+ PHEV

    For those who want a ride for their Christmas parties but still consider their travel’s effect on Mother Nature, Chery offers a solution through the Tiggo 8 Pro e+ PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle).

    The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro e+ PHEV is an SUV that offers a stylish exterior, decent seating capacity, but most importantly, an electrified powertrain.

    Under its hood is a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine mated to the brand’s dedicated hybrid transmission. The said setup is accompanied by dual permanent magnet synchronous motors that contribute to a total power production of 320hp with a peak torque of 545Nm.

    In terms of range, the Tiggo 8 Pro e+ PHEV boasts emissions-free driving of approximately 75 kilometers, which can cover a back-and-forth trip from Laguna to Las Pinas with a few more power to spare.

    Final thoughts

    Regardless of what type of car you drive this Christmas party season, remember to always stay safe while on the road. Assigning designated drivers who will pass on alcohol to sit behind the wheel will help.
