There wasn’t any problem with it, they said, but they wanted to make sure they wouldn’t be back to take a theft report. “We’re talking to owners of older Toyotas and Hondas — they’re the ones that get stolen the most out of the city,” Officer Flavio Becerra told a 26-year-old man who owns a 1995 Toyota Camry. On a recent weekday afternoon, Becerra and Officer Nathan Poke made their way to a series of Payne-Phalen neighborhood residences, where older-model vehicles are registered.

Toyota PH aims for 10% sales growth in 2019TOYOTA Motor Philippines Corp. is hoping its sales would pick up next year after posting decreases this year, its chief said.

The Hyundai Kona is one of the newest contenders in the subcompact crossover SUV market. Its rivals in the market include the Jeep Renegade, Honda HR-V, Toyota CH-R, Nissan Kicks, and Mazda CX-3. Kona comes standard with a 147 horsepower, 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. A 175 hp turbocharged engine is available as an option. We were impressed by the Kona’s peppy turbocharged engine, sporty driving dynamics, and its solid array of standard tech features. We aren’t quite in love with Kona’s quirky styling and limited cargo capacity.
