Top Gear (Philippines) - - The PIcks -

They al­ways say save the best for last, so our last stop is Honda Pasig for the City. It’s also proudly Philip­pine-made, and of the three cars we’ve checked out, this has the most pow­er­ful en­gine (gaso­line), the most num­ber of gears (CVT with seven sim­u­lated gears), the most in­te­rior space, and the most num­ber of safety equip­ment. The Honda badge of­fers the most panache and street cred, too. And sur­pris­ingly, gen­er­ous dis­counts are be­ing of­fered on pref­acelift mod­els, a hand­ful of which are still avail­able. The tim­ing couldn’t be bet­ter to check it out.

PROs

best specs; very roomy in­te­rior; avail­able dis­counts

CONs

2016 model is es­sen­tially last sea­son’s car; main­te­nance can be costly
