What Cars Can You Buy for Less Than Php12,000 a Month?

Here are six
By Drei Laurel for TopGear.com.ph |


Unless you've been living under a rock since the beginning of the year, you probably know that the country's automotive landscape has changed quite a bit since we rang in 2018.

 

This is largely due to the implementation of the new Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law, which effectively placed higher excise taxes on most types of vehicles. One by one, local carmakers began releasing updated price lists showing higher rates for many of the market's favorite car models.

 

Pickups were spared, as were a select handful of luxury rides (and it's not like the majority of us can venture into either segment). But for the most part, things got pricier.

 

Hey, don't feel too down in the dumps about it. There's still a relatively fine selection of cars to choose from, even if you're on a tighter budget. With a little help from the BPI car loan calculator, we listed down some of the more popular cars that still fall below the Php12,000 per month mark (20 percent down payment, 60 months amortization). Take your pick:

 

 

Chevrolet Spark 1.4 LT MT 

SRP: P694,888

Monthly: P11,862

 

 

Nissan Almera 1.2 MT

SRP: P657,000

Monthly: P11,215

 

 

Kia Picanto 1.0 SL AT

SRP: P695,000

Monthly: P11,881

 

 

Honda Brio 1.3 S AT
