Carpooling Cars

With the rise of commodities and the unbearable lines in train stations here in the Metro, people have started to think of ways to lessen their expenses and commute time. While others just moved closer to their work place, others have resulted to carpooling. Though it’s not something that widely used here in the Philippines, with Grab’s ride share, slowly more and more people are being to the idea of it. If you are one of those people who think they should just carpool, then you’re in luck cause we put together a list of cars you could purchase which we think are best for carpooling.


Toyota Innova

If you want to do carpooling all year round, then we highly advice you to get an Innova so that floods brought by the rainy season won’t be a problem. As many reviews also state, the Innova's diesel variant has a fuel economy of 12 km/L and the gasoline has an efficiency of 9 km/L, both in urban driving conditions.


Toyota Vios

Of course we need to put the Vios here in the list. It’s cheap and it’s made by a company that’s super popular for making quality cars. You would never have a hard time in looking for parts for this unit. This car model is a common sight around the Metro. In fact, many taxis or Grab drivers are sporting this vehicle because it is highly reliable on the country's roads.


Hyundai Accent

If you’re looking for a sleek and dependable car, then look no further. The Accent boasts top-quality looks and amazing features to keep you from getting bored due to traffic. They also offer a hatchback unit which consumes diesel and not gasoline.
