Foton Iloilo is manned by a professional and dynamic sales team to help Ilonggos cater to their needs when it comes to mobility. It is complemented by fast-responding communication lines to seamlessly address inquiries from customers regarding both Foton passenger vehicles and CVs.

As for after-sales programs and services, the new dealership comes with a large inventory of vehicle spare parts to make Foton EC Genuine Parts more accessible, hence help fast-track transactions. The Chinese car brand’s Heavy Truck Duty Services are also offered to maintain every Foton CV so businesses can move more miles.

Know more about Foton Toplander 2021

Foton Toplander

The Toplander, known as Sauvana in the global market, is Foton Motor Philippines’ entry into the highly competitive midsize SUV segment. It is the Chinese brand’s first attempt in engineering a vehicle that falls into this category. Coming from a lucrative portfolio of large commercial vehicles, Foton applied the same power and strength to the Toplander as seen on the vehicle’s exterior and under its hood. Its design follows the same general aesthetic as most nameplates in its segment, intimidating, huge, muscular with character lines, and accentuated with chrome. The Toplander is bigger in terms of height and width compared to its segment rivals. Inside, the cabin is decked in black plastic materials and the bare necessities in entertainment. However, it boasts of its spacious legroom and expansive cargo space. It comes in two variants which are the EL 4x2 AT and the EX 4x2. Both are powered by a Cummins 2.8L diesel engine. The SUV can tow up to 3 tons of weight which is higher than the standard for this segment.

Someday, Rex only wishes to drive on random highways with friends in a third-gen Mitsubishi Delica with aftermarket sunroofs, if he couldn’t get the Starwagon Super Exceed edition.
