I went to the BPI Auto Madness last week to check on the cars that are being offered to the Cebu market. There were 19 car brands competing for attention and there were 5 cars that caught my fancy.
No.1 on my list is the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. They say bad boys attract the girls well, if a bad boy were a car, it would be a Jeep. It had bad-ass looks and it features are really suited for an adventure. Some might brand this car as nice, but the appropriate adjectives should be tough and strong. This off-roader will be a perfect partner for road trips to the mountain areas of Cebu. The design is still classic. You can always see the similarities to its previous incarnations.
No. 2 Toyota FJ Cruiser
An uncle of mine used to have land cruiser and it was one my favorites back when I was still in high school. The present version is much sleeker and sportier but nevertheless, a head turner. It is again one of those off-roaders abroad that becomes "cute" here in the Philippines.
No. 3 Chevrolet Trailblazer
The SUV is a great alternative to a Toyota Fortuner or Mitsubishi Montero. For this month, the local Chevrolet dealership is giving out 150,000 worth of accessories if you buy a Chevrolet Trailblazer. That is one sweet deal that will be hard to resist.
No. 4 Honda Odyssey
This is the only non-SUV in the list, but this Honda mini-van does not look like your ordinary mini-van. It has a lower profile for a sportier look. The interiors are really top class and it has a lot of interesting features like the dual power sliding doors. I also love the captain seats in the middle rows that reminds you of La-Z-Boy seats.
No. 5 BMW X4
Germany has to be represented so I picked the show-stopping BMW X4. This is probably the sportiest among the Sports Utility Vehicles in the market. Just by looking at it, you know that it is meant to be driven fast. The aerodynamics of the BMW X4 is just awesome. I really love those shark fin antennas.
