I agree, the alto will not flip because it is too low. Before I used to think that alto was a joke, until my friend did an honest mileage test.
Alam ko malapit nang mawala ang Alto 800cc variant at papalitan ng new Alto na bago ang exterior at interior na panlaban sa Hyundai Eon.Yung Alto K10 variant will stay.
Buhayin ko lang ah.
Small engine does not equate to fuel economy. Pag maliit makina, ibig sabihin mas mataas ang RPM para makuha ang cruising speed.
My Kia Picanto consumes 13kpl, mixed city and highway driving. cruising RPM nya is almost 3000rpm pag 100kph cruising.
Owning a car is not just about fuel economy, also you have to consider, initial cost of owning it, resale value after x years, anticipated years of service, durability and consequently, maintenance and repair costs.
Kahit na matipid yung car, pero talo ka naman dun sa mga points above, then fuel consumption just wont cut it.
Hey, I forgot safety, most important. Feel free to correct me, you have a better chance to come out alive (in a crash) in a bigger vehicle than a small and smallish vehicles. That beats any fuel economy in my book.
Well, it is true that Bigger Cars can provides better passenger/s protection than Smaller Cars ( even with same safety ratings), but the survival of the passenger/s still depends on certain of variables like the area of impact, speed, mass/size , safety features, etc..
Alto K10 offers a class leading mileage of 20.2 KM/Litre and is the new version of the Alto with enhanced features, improved mileage and powerful K-Series 1000cc engine at an attractive price. Other players include the likes of the Honda Jazz, Ford Fiesta, Holden Barina Spark, Hyundai Getz and new Hyundai i20, the Mazda2 and the Mahindra Verito.

"In vehicle-to-vehicle frontal collisions — or any collision, for that matter — having a big, heavy vehicle also helps, although this is a subject of some controversy; the same mass that is protecting the larger vehicle's occupants is lowering the chance of survival in the smaller one. In other words, in a crash between a big truck and a compact car, the big truck is most likely to win."
Not being selfish here, but better them than me caught in a compact car. Its not as if naghahanap ako ng mababangga, but hey, we need to survive in an accident.
Please note that I said "better chance of survival".
I agree that a larger car gives you better protection, but if you plan on just using your vehicle around the metro and youre not into racing, or driving fast you tend not to get involved in a high speed collision. Bihira yung pile up collision dito sa pinas sa bagal ng traffic dito at wala naman snow sa kalye. Gone are the days of 'maluwag ang kalye', most of the time grabe na traffic dito sa metro manila.
But if you always drive out of town, say tagaytay and use slex, the really small car may not be ideal.
the new mirage is out here in the market na..i saw a couple of them the pas few days..anyone here who owns this new generation of mirage? di ba mabagal ang 1.2L variant to have a CVT engine? say, 4 adult passengers inside the car tapos on a parking ramp (tipong edsa shang parking building) lol
