A reader asks: What’s the P1M car for flood-prone Metro Manila?

sir Botchi!

Dude, I love answers—they’re very practical and I’m planning to buy my first early next year, but the vehicle I’m slightly about is Batman’s Tumbler.

Can you help me pick an ideal car for the metro? I’m looking for a car will do the following:

* Get me through and hole-ridden city roads (I we should evade floods, but floods won’t evade

* Help me be fuel-efficient.

* Work for driving on holiday trips, and in we have to escape there due to the apocalypse.

* Enable my wife to drive it a boss.

I also want it to be practical than just . I’d like to say I’m for the AK-47 of cars, but my budget is around P1 million and change. favors the brave, but the Fortuner to favor those with a I have been researching, and are my options, in no particular order:

* Strada (I just don’t what I’d do with semi-exposed flat bed even a Thule);

Are the exhaust pipes of the and the Sportage significantly raised than that of a sedan’s?

Please feel free to other suggestions. Should I get a or an automatic? Should I get the diesel or gas A lot of filling stations get flooded,

Thank you in advance. And I salute you for service.

Jude, thanks for e-mail.

When driving flood-prone areas and fording all-weather ability is king. And if you the missus to drive like a then there’s only one I recommend for you: the  Ranger Wildtrak .

Toyota Hilux Flatbed

It has arguably the off-road ability out of the box; it has the that only a boss’s can have; and its fording depth ability to wade through is a best-in-class 800mm. Ford they’ve tested it to take more than that (an third-party report lists it at over 1m), but of course had to the rating back down for sake. And its 3.2-liter in-line diesel engine is the most in its class, too. Like a you need the power and the ability to put it to the ground!

Unfortunately, your not-so-bossy puts it out of your immediate

The Strada’s strongest suit is trails and open highways, a typical rally stage. It do as well in pure trail-riding (including winching), but for going floods, it’s more enough. I own one myself and am very with it. It does have the pickup bed in its class, which is since I don’t load big enough to fill the bed anyway. But the space is the best, with the comfortable, SUV-like rear roomier than the Toyota (which is more expensive) and the Ranger (which is the most

The cheapest Strada starts at . With the savings you get, you can buy a Bilstein suspension kit to lift the a further two inches (adding ground clearance, which help you tackle bad roads and bad and bigger, fatter tires to increase fording depth more.

With its 5.9m radius (tightest in its class), the will have an easier driving it as well.

I hope helps! Good luck and be especially during the rainy
