MANILA: While one of the biggest automotive extravaganzas in Philippines is about to get underway in less than a month’s time, the automotive producers are eyeing the platform for mammoth reach, to rocket their present booking numbers and showcase their mesmerizing creations to the world. And, if you are an autogeek, you don’t want to let this opportunity fly by. So mark the dates and set the reminder as the doors for the auto fiesta open from 7th April, 2016. Here, we have compiled a list of top 5 cars that are highly expected to make their way to the show spreading their brilliance and magnificence.
With its ravishing looks, striking lines and peculiar styling, the all-new Civic is likely to knock the doors of Manila International Auto Show next month. Underpinning a 1.5-litre i-VTEC turbocharged fuel-efficient engine, the new Civic is capable of pumping out a max power of 173 hp and a peak torque of 220 Nm. Being developed under Earth Dreams technology, the engine is highly potent to yield out impressive economy and is capable of running on alternative fuels like E85.
The next in our list is the all-new Honda BR-V, which had touched the shores of the neighbouring country, Thailand a couple of months back and was taken to India for an exclusive display at the Auto Expo in Delhi. It is speculated to take the stage at the upcoming show in Philippines as well. Underpinning a 1.5-litre i-VTEC SOHC engine, drooling looks and supremely comfortable cabin, the all-new BR-V is set to take the Philippines crossover market by storm.
Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo
Another prospect model to grace the auto show is the Fortuner 2016 TRD Sportivo. Toyota Racing Development has tried its hands on the latest Fortuner and undoubtedly, it looks astonishing. The sport edition of the new Fortuner gets an exquisite appeal, thanks to the presence of sporty kit, which includes a refreshed front grille, revised front and rear bumpers, black matte finished roof and 20-inch tough alloys. TRD badging is present across the SUV including its tailgate, wheels and exhaust pipes.
Chevrolet Cruze 2016
Cruze 2016 is due in Philippines and the auto admirers are expecting that it’s time for them to witness the new Cruze. The chances of the same making to the MIAS this year are quite high. What’s amazing and fascinating for the autogeeks is the latest platform that has helped the premium sedan to shed off good 113 Kgs, enhancing its performance.
Mitsubishi Montero Sport
Being popular as Pajero Sport in surrounding parts of the country, the next-gen Montero Sport has received an overwhelming response from the auto aficionados and has contributed enormously to the growth of the brand in Philippines in terms of sales. According to the CAMPI reports, the all-new Montero Sport has contributed more than one third of the sales, with 1595 units of the total units sold in February.
The list of vehicles coming to the MIAS is enormous and we are expecting the show to be a grand success especially with the brands participating the show.
