Whatever their reason is, air-conditioning will always be a big factor in our daily drive

Just imagine getting stuck in traffic with a broken air-conditioner. Maybe even if you are a really big car enthusiast, you'll decide to call a Grab or take the bus rather than feeling the heat especially here in the Philippines. 

So what are some of the best car brands with good air-conditioner? Let's find out! Sit tight, stay "cool", and Philkotse.com will tackle that in this article.

1. Nissan

It is not a surprise that Nissan brings home the number one spot. We might have heard about Nissan's air-conditioning a lot. I mean like A LOT especially from the car talks of our grandpas and uncles.

The reason why the air-conditioning is so good in Nissan is that the components are made by Calsonic. Some air-conditioning in other car brands are made by Denso (I'm not saying Denso is bad), this is the reason why Nissan's air-conditioning is top-notch.

We can't just move on without mentioning the Nissan Sentra

We can't just move on without mentioning the Nissan Sentra. Produced first in 1982, the Nissan Sentra has been around the Filipino community for such a long time. It even had a Philippine version from 1995-2002.

Nissan designed the 'Forest Air-conditioning system'. The purpose of this build is to recreate the climate in the forest to help reduce stress. Who knew air-conditioning was more than just climate control.

A nissan sentra is well known and has built its reputation in the Philippines as to having a cold and efficient aircon

Well well well, would you look at that. Brings you back to the old days, eyy?

2. Toyota

The low and reasonable price point of every Toyota car makes the air-conditioning system such a treat. Toyota cars are the ideal daily car.

For the base price of P662,000, you will surely get your money's worth with its air-conditioning system. No wonder most Grab cars are Toyota Vios

Ever heard about people telling you to roll down the windows and turn off the air-conditioner so you can save up in fuel? I'm pretty sure you did at some point. but didn't understand why.

Turning on the air-conditioning system will make Toyota Vios's engine run faster to drive the belt that is connected to the air-conditioning compressor—a faster running engine means more fuel consumption. Activating the air-conditioning system can add up to 10% to fuel consumption. 

3. Mitsubishi

Yes, you read that right. There may be another good air-conditioning system in other car brands, but Mitsubishi has established itself here in the Philippines its quality on their aircon with the help of two classics - the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Mitsubishi Galant.

The cold air from the A/C will surely make you feel like you are not in second hand cars and question the owner of the car's aircon system is replaced recently.

So, what is the car brand with the best aircon?

Before I unveil my pick for the car brand with the best aircon, let me squeeze in Cadillac and Lexus as part of my honorable mentions.

The American company made its good impression in their air-conditioning with the help of GM. Since Lexus' parent organization is Toyota, they continue to share engineering resources with each other.

So, what is the car brand with the best aircon? Easy, it's Nissan.

Nissan never left its impression on the people with its aircon quality. Many are talking about Nissan's principle of sticking with most of its design and functionality.

Some say they should change it—but my question is, do they really? As the old saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
