While Kia and Suzuki were trumpeting the sports each had decided to sponsor and Nissan was touting their sporting history, a trio of Japanese marqued played to PIMS 2014’s theme perfectly, augmenting their crop of current production vehicles with their respective visions of the future of motoring.
SUVs (sport utility vehicles) have become a common sight on Philippine roads. It seems that drivers who just want something nice to drive have gone from the premium sedans of yore to the SUVs of today. It isn’t difficult to see why, as the extra ride height makes one feel more confident on the road, and all that suspension travel and sidewall height means rough roads and unpaved trails to vacation paradises don’t present as much of a problem. Sure, you might say that SUVs with their high centre of gravity and long suspension travel are no fun to drive, but the Montero Sport makes a pretty good case for itself.
