  • SPEC SHOWDOWN: 2024 Honda Brio V CVT vs. 2023 Mitsubishi Mirage GLX CVT

    The refreshed 2024 Honda Brio was officially launched in the Philippines on July 13, 2023. Although the updates were largely cosmetic, such as new bumpers, there are also new colors available for all Brio variants.

So we’ll do the obvious comparison now – is the 2024 Honda Brio V CVT a better buy than the venerable 2023 Mitsubishi Mirage GLX CVT, which is ₱55,000 cheaper? It’s the

  • FULL REVIEW: 2023 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 GLS CVT -- An aging crowd favorite

    Disclaimer: Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation lent us a 2023 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 unit with a full gas tank and access to its Autosweep RFID. When car enthusiasts like us review new models, we look at the performance, handling, and features that these offer.

In other words, there are people who simply want a value-packed yet afford

  • Savings abound! Here are our Top Five 5-year-old cars

    Let’s turn the clock back some five years ago. In 2018, I was 40 pounds lighter and working part-time as a motoring contributor to help me through graduate school. This was also the year that I started my racing career. 2018 was also when the cars in this list were showroom fresh.

Indeed, five years is typically the time when most com

  • Lady-owned: Cars women would enjoy driving

    Whatever the reason, there are now more women who are spending a lot of time behind the wheel.

  • SPEC SHOWDOWN: 2023 Toyota Wigo vs. Mitsubishi Mirage

    The 2023 Toyota Wigo is a reasonably new hatchback to the segment; its seen launches across the ASEAN region, with each new version bringing something new. We have the likes of the Toyota Agya, a more basic version of the hatchback with more power, and the Perodua Axia, which retains its old 1.0-liter gasoline engine but is upgraded with better safety and more technology.
