The Cars and Trucks of the 2016 Manila International Auto Show

Now on its 12th year, the 2016 Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) has over hundreds of cars and trucks occupying more than 30,000sqm of floor space of the World Trade Center, the adjacent World Trade Center Tent, and the Philippine Trade Training Center next door.

On display are brand-new cars from some of the Philippines' major car brands, with some launching all-new or upgraded models for the local market like Ford (Ford EcoSport Black Edition variant), Hyundai (all-new Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Veloster as well as Hyundai commercial vehicles), Subaru (updated Subaru Forester), Peugeot (Peugeot 308 GTI), Chevrolet (Chevrolet Sail), and Mitsubishi (updated Mitsubishi Mirage). Returning Korean carmaker SsangYong also launched its local models (SsangYong Tivoli, SsagYong Korando, and SsangYong Rodius) a day after the signing of the distributorship agreement between Berjaya Auto Philippines, which  is the official distributor of the car brand locally, and SsangYong.

More than just the cars though, visitors to #MIAS2016 will also see a lot of custom cars displayed side-by-side with meticulously restored classic cars, which is very timely after the Land Transportation Office issued--only to later rescind--an administrative order banning cars that are 40 years old or older.

So, if you've yet to go to the 2016 Manila International Auto Show, we suggest that you head there now. Enjoy!
