Top Used Car Options You Can Buy This 2022
Updated on September 18 2023
Car options have further expanded this year with the introduction of multiple new models from almost all brands. If you are looking for a used car this 2022, what are some of your choices? Let’s find out.
1. Ford Ranger
Known for being capable, and comfortable, Ford Ranger makes for a great used car purchase.
The Ford Ranger is a mid-size pickup truck for city and off-road use. It is available in 20 different variants, allowing you to select the one that best meets your requirements. Those who simply need a workhorse pickup truck may select the base model XLS 2.2 4x2 M/T, while those who need a lifestyle pickup truck with plenty of style and power may choose to go for the range topping Raptor 2.0 Bi-Turbo EcoBlue 4x4 A/T.
Comfortable even on bumpy surfaces compared to most pickup trucks currently available in the market, the Ford Ranger makes daily drives with or without carrying loads in the back, a more-than-tolerable experience. Moreover, the cabin and bed is large giving extra practicality for when the need to haul materials come up.
One thing to take note of, the newer models of the Ford Ranger are powered by a single or bi-turbo 2.0L diesel engine. These units have received reports of premature transmission failure. When considering a Ford Ranger, Automart.PH suggests selecting those powered by either a 2.2L diesel engine, or the 3.2L diesel engine, both of which are mated to a bulletproof six speed automatic transmission.
Used examples of the Ford Ranger are available on the Automart.PH website for as low as 438,000 PHP.
2. Toyota Vios
The Toyota Vios is an excellent option for Pinoys who love sub-compact cars.
With an abundance of safety features introduced during its latest update, including the option to have seven airbags, Anti-lock brakes (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), and Hill Start Assist, the Toyota Vios, new or used, will be a great addition to any Filipino driver’s garage. A 5-Star ASEAN New Car Assessment Program crash safety rating was also awarded to this model of the Toyota Vios recently in 2018, ensuring every drive to be a safe drive.
Engine options for the Toyota Vios may be limited to the 1.3L Gasoline developing 99PS and 123Nm of torque and the 1.5L Gasoline that puts out 107PS and 140Nm of torque, but variant options are plentiful with seven variants starting off with the Vios 1.3 Base, to the sporty looking Vios 1.5 GR-S. Transmission options also include an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a 5 speed manual option.
Interior appointments do not disappoint with the addition of a 6.75” touchscreen that supports both Apple Carplay and Android Auto for on-the-go entertainment on all but the lowest two trims (1.3 Base and 1.3 J).
Most importantly, due to the sheer number of Toyota Vioses in the country, you will be sure to have parts and service readily available no matter where you are in the Philippines.
Used examples of the Toyota Vios, including Automart.PH Certified Used Vehicles (ACUVs) which come with a 1 year, or 10,000Km warranty, and 5-day, money-back guarantee are available on the Automart.PH website for as low as 350,000 PHP.
3. Nissan Almera
The Nissan Almera is a small, affordable, sub-compact vehicle designed to compete with other popular models in its class, such as the Toyota Vios and Honda City.
This model from Nissan offers more interior space for five people compared to almost any other car in the segment, ensuring comfort for all passengers. Its fuel efficiency makes it a very economical car to run, and its easy handling gives new drivers the confidence they need.
Engine options include a 1.2L gasoline engine, and a 1.5L gasoline engine, both of which are economical to run. Buyers have the option to choose between a five speed manual or four speed automatic transmission, so do not worry about not being able to drive stick.
Used examples of the Nissan Almera are available on the Automart.PH website for as low as 240,000 PHP.
