Manila International Auto Show

Today, my wife and I went to the Manila International Auto Show at the World Trade Center to check out the new car models for sale. We were looking for our options if ever we finally decide to get a car in the future.

For me, my first choice is definitely the new Honda City. I like its new look and with the new 1.3L VTEC engine, it is a perfect combination of looks and power.

My second choice would have to be the Hyundai i10. It's small frame is perfect for city driving. Plus, getting a Hyundai is a good investment in my opinion.

For my wife, her first choice is the Kia Carens. I admit her choice is a good one because of the ample leg room space and the torque-y but frugal CRDI diesel engine. We would have no problem using it in our out of town trips.

And her second choice is the surprisingly delightful Chery QQ3. She likes the idea that it can be modified to look like a Mini Cooper.

Of course, there are other options available. Like the Reva fully electric car which was displayed by the Motolite booth. We don't need to worry about gas prices going up. I hope we get to see more electric charging stations in the future.

We also got to checkout some of the more beautiful cars in display. My wife and I took lots of pictures for our "dream board". Below are the Mazda MX-5, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X and the Subaru Impreza Hatchback.

Update: When we were about to leave, we were able to spot the always handsome Ford Mustang displayed near the exit. It seems to be the same model which was used in Steve McQueen's movie, Bullitt.
