    The “d” in BMW’s 118d denotes a diesel engine. The power and torque figures of 170PS/200Nm don’t really match a diesel engine’s output. Maybe you meant to write 118i instead of 118d?

    A quick Wikipedia search says the power/torque figures you’ve quoted in this article correspond to the 118i. The 118d’s power figures has a more torquey 143PS/300Nm ratio.

    Wishful thinking on my part, but I would love to have a sports car for less than 2 million with an efficient diesel engine. Who needs horsepower in a country where every few kilometers of road is a work in progress?

    I’d put those fuel savings for the car’s maintenance. It’s a BMW anyway. Sooner or later, something’s bound to break.

    • silenz says:

      Feeling may pambili ang writer ng article. Katotohanan nagko-commute lang ang lokong yan.

    • Abe Olandres says:

      We actually review some of the cars in the list since the brands loaned them to us — that includes the Honda CR-Z and the Ford Mustang.

    • delvin says:

      review, lol. loaned, lol. stick to gadgets and leave car reviews to people who are actually in the industry. i’m willing to bet none of you have ever owned a “sports car” or anything remotely close to one. one more thing, affordable? LOOOL.

    • Kelso says:

      Ayun! Inggit much? Kayo ba pinapahiram ng kotse ng libre? Mag tayo kayo ng sarili nyong blog at magsulat ng top 10 nyo.

    • weryou@ says:

      @silenz:

      In defense of sir Abe, there was a post back then airing his musings on whether to get a Hyundai Genesis Coupe (tama ba? didn’t try looking for that post again hehe) or a SUV. Being a family guy (I guess), the SUV went into his garage. Later, Mr. Francisco reviewed the Hyundai Genesis Coupe (a yellow one!) on a separate post. So, yes, mukhang kaya naman niyang bumili ng mga tulad niyan.

  11. John says:

    by the definition of sports cars, only 3 are true sports car. And not even the mustang.

  12. brian says:

    you should’ve included the Subaru WRX priced at 1.8m and WRX STi priced at 2.4m
    those are serious contenders for the sports car category in the PH.
