While there's no word yet on a new version or a facelift, the current Innova still holds up in terms of exterior design

Larger in size than the Toyota Avanza, the Toyota Innova is the Toyota Philippines’ most popular vehicle being sold here in the Philippines since 2005 up to the present.

The Innova is also one of the three-vehicle models belonging to the Toyota IMV platform. This means that it rides on a “ladder” or body on frame chassis making it as robust as its Fortuner and Hilux brothers.

In 2016, Toyota gave the Innova a significant makeover on the outside and the inside. For its exterior, it’s been given a more modern look while the interior is more user-oriented.

While the other IMV models can come with 4x4, the Innova only comes with a 4x2 drivetrain and has a rear-wheel-drive layout. Engine choices include 2.8-liter diesel and 2.0-liter gasoline.

Just like the Fortuner, the Innova can comfortably seat seven people thus making it ideal for families.

The Honda BR-V is a compact crossover SUV which is essentially a stretched-out Honda Brio. This is because it currently shares the same platform with the aforementioned Honda made a compact car and the Mobilio, another Honda made MPV.

Looks like a taller, wider Brio

Currently, the BR-V sits just below the HR-V in terms of market segment and is currently being sold mainly in Asia. It can fit in seven people just fine.

For engines, the Honda BR-V comes with a 1.5-liter i-VTEC inline-4 that can make 118 horsepower and 145 NM which is not that bad for the purpose it was built for; a city going roundabout hence the name, Bold Runabout Vehicle. Power is sent to the front wheels with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT.

The Honda Brio won’t win in terms of speed and agility, but hey, it can reliably get you from A to B efficiently and safely.

Honda Mobilio: A wagon-lookalike MPV car in the Philippines

Variant
Price
Honda Mobilio1.5 E
Php 895,000
Honda Mobilio1.5 V CVT

Honda Mobilio1.5 RS Navi CVT
Php 1,085,000

The Mobilio reminds us more of a wagon than an MPV

While visually, it looks like the wagon version of the Brio because it does indeed share the same platform, the Honda Mobilio is a seven-seater mini-MPV.

The main difference it has with the BR-V though is that it rides significantly lower to the ground but otherwise, it has the same engine. The manual option, however, has 1 gear less than the BR-V but the CVT is just about the same.

The BR-V, however, has a higher wheelbase due to its SUV like stance. The Mobilio does return a significantly better fuel mileage at 17.3 kmpl which is 12% better in comparison to the BR-V’s 14.8 kmpl average.

Like the BR-V, the Mobilio isn’t that fast, but with that kind of fuel economy it is returning, it’s a winner for sure.
