It could have very well been an early Labor Day gift from Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. at the April 29 unveiling of the 2016 Mirage at the Solaire Resort and Casino, as MMPC president and CEO Yoshiaki Kato declared, “Starting next year, under the CARS program of the government, we are going to start assembling the Mirage in our Sta.

Last week, Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC), distributor of Kia vehicles in the country invited over a dozen members of the media on a 500-kilometer road trip from Bacolod City to Dumaguete City and back. The road trip was the first road trip for the all-new Kia Sportage and it was an opportunity for the motoring media to put the new Sportage to the test in some of the most scenic coastal roads in the province of Negros.
