    Toyota Vios

    The Toyota Vios is synonymous with the Filipino sedan segment, with a reach as far as markets for private passenger vehicles as well as those looking to enter the local transport sector.

    Toyota Vios

    On that note, you are more likely to see a Toyota Vios in the streets than you would any other car in the brand’s local roster.

    The secret to its success is its wide trim variety as it is — at the time of writing — offered in 10 variants including the dressed-up Toyota Vios GR-S. To show just how diverse the nameplate is, its base variant comes with halogen headlamps, a Material Black front grille, Materia Black side mirrors, and Material Black door handles.

    It also comes with vinyl seats, a urethane steering wheel, it also gets a urethane shift knob.

    While it might look like devoid of creature comfort appointments it does the job as well as those belonging to the higher trims (with the exception of the range-topping variants) as it hides the same 1.3-liter gasoline engine under its hood — just like its mid-variant counterparts.

    Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line Toyota Vios comes with all the bells and whistles such as GR-S body kits, a Piano Black mesh-type front grille, Piano Black side mirrors, Piano Black door handles, and is peppered with Gazoo Racing badges.

    Inside, it gets leather seats, a leather steering wheel, a leather shift boot, a push-start system, an Optitron instrument panel, and a 6.75-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    At its heart is a beefier 1.5-liter powerplant married to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

    The Toyota Vios, which can sometimes be seen as the replacement of the Corolla in the Philippines, is priced for as low as P696,000 and as high as P1.055 million.

    Mitsubishi Mirage G4

    The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is yet another car that’s usually at the top of the list of many car buyers in the country. Considered as the successor of the Lancer nameplate in the Philippines, it offers a more compact body than the aforementioned Toyota Vios.

    Now on its sixth generation, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 looks more aggressive and offers a bolder face for car buyers looking for a compact car with an attitude.

    At its front is the latest iteration of the Mitsubishi Dynamic Shield front fascia. It also gets sharper-looking headlamps that complement the abundance of straight lines on the car’s front end.

    To its side are simple side fenders accompanied by a black side mirror, black B-pillars, body-color door handles, as well as 15-inch alloy wheels finished in silver or black that are wrapped with 185/55 R-15 tires.

    At the rear, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 gets a stylish pair of taillamps, reflectors on each side, a diffuser, and a chrome garnish on the trunk handle.

    Inside, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is equipped with fabric seats, a urethane or a leather-covered steering wheel, a plastic dashboard, and plastic door trims.

    Past the multi-functional steering wheel is an instrument panel with analog gauges as well as a seven-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    Its power comes from a 1.2-liter three-cylinder MIVEC engine mated to an Invecs III continuously variable transmission (CVT).

    Mitsubishi Motor Philippines Corporation is selling the Mirage G4 in five variants. It has a base price of P769,000. The range-topping variant is priced at P899,000.

    Nissan Almera

    Car buyers also consider the Nissan Almera when searching for a brand-new ride. The sedan makes for a great substitute for the discontinued Sentra.

    The Nissan Almera received its recent update not too long ago, which allowed the car to wear the latest iteration of Nissan’s V-shaped grille. It also gets a new pair of LED headlamps, new LED taillamps, blacked-out side mirrors, and a set of 16-inch alloy wheels.

    Other notable features of the Nissan Almera include its available two-tone finish, reflectors on each side, and diffusers on the rear end of the vehicle.

    Inside, the Nissan Almera comes with soft-touch materials with contrasting appliques on the dashboard. It also has a leather steering wheel with multifunctional controls, seats covered in leather, and a leather shifter.

    Past the said steering wheel is a seven-inch instrument cluster with digital displays, as well as an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
