Only a few weeks ago, Honda Cars Philippines announced that the all-new Honda Civic Type R Price is ready for bookings in our country.
However, only 100 units of 2017 Honda Civic Type R are available for bookings in the Philippines, which means, if you are not lucky enough, you might not have a chance to own this hot car.
That is why Philkotse would like to suggest you with three promising alternatives, namely the Mazda MX-5, the Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Peugeot 208 GTi. The brand-new Mazda MX-5 provides the greatest comfort of open-top driving to an ever-widening audience with one-of-a-kind fastback styling. But if you are leaning more toward to a German or French car brand, we also have the Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Peugeot 208 GTi out there.
