“The cost of the look: P1,780,888. In terms of pricing, this puts the Phoenix just above the Trailblazer’s LT automatic variant, which goes for P1,708,888.
“Powering the Trailblazer Phoenix is the standard 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel with 200hp and 500Nm on tap, paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and a rear-wheel drivetrain. Additional features include a seven-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system equipped with Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto.”
“The good news is that it’s going to be cheaper than the top V8 variants of its main rival, the Ford Mustang. The Camaro will be sold in the Philippines for P3,298,888. This makes it around P200,000 cheaper than the 5.0 GT Fastback.
“The catch? Well, the new PH-spec Camaro Turbo 3LT RS won’t come with a big-displacement V-type engine. Instead, it gets a 2.0-liter turbo with 275hp and 398Nm, mated to an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic.”
“The GT edition was designed exclusively for the Asian market. It was done in collaboration with engineering company Giken and Masahiko ‘Jack’ Kobayashi, Subaru’s former chief designer whose resume includes the WRX STI.
“The exterior add-ons include a new front bumper lip extension with integrated canards, new sides skirts, a longer roof spoiler, an extension on the rear bumper, and bespoke 18-inch wheels. Inside, the cabin gets leather seats akin to those found in European grand tourers. The GT also boasts a dual sideview monitor system for easier parking. Under the hood, the 2.0-liter boxer engine with 154hp and 196Nm remains.”
“The Kona, as you might know, is already being sold here as a regular gasoline-powered crossover. In EV form, the crossover looks a lot more futuristic. The grille is almost nonexistent, blending into the rest of the front fascia. On top is a slim chrome strip with complementing thin LED lights. The roof and the pillars are rounder compared with those on the gasoline version, with deeply etched character lines to finish off the look.
“The electric Kona runs on a permanent magnet synchronous motor that produces 201hp and 395Nm. It will retail in our market for P2,388,000.”
“Given its price of P3,240,000, the seven-seater SUV will cater to the premium market. Up front, it has an imposing hexagonal chrome grille flanked by thin LED headlamps and beefy rectangular foglights. The sides feature more chrome, and underneath are 20-inch alloy wheels.
“The PH-spec Palisade is powered by a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine with 197hp and 441Nm, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It runs on all-wheel-drive, and comes with Multi-Terrain Control, which is adjustable via a dial. Available driving modes are Eco, Smart, Sport, and Comfort.”
“Engine options for the Stinger in the US include a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 with 365hp, and a 2.0-liter turbo with 255hp. All-wheeldrive is an option in that market. Kia hasn’t revealed a local price for the Stinger yet, but according to a salesperson on the show floor, it’s expected to retail at P3,235,000.”
“Yes, the Forte is back. It was launched alongside the Stinger at the 2019 Manila International Auto Show earlier today. The unit displayed at MIAS, a white GT variant, flaunts sportier looks and a much more muscular stance compared to the generation we last had available in the Philippines.”
“Potential buyers have two engines to choose from: a 2.0-liter in-line turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine (268hp, 400Nm), and a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 gasoline (286hp, 353Nm). Both powerpants get an eight-speed automatic transmission. Based on those specs alone, it’s clear that turbocharging is indeed the future. We’d gladly sacrifice (well, not gladly) 20hp in exchange for 47Nm of torque.”
“The SUV’s interior is dark and utilitarian, and components like the instrument cluster, shift knob and door panels feature red stitching and accents to match the car’s exterior. Overall, it has a spartan vibe that complements the brand’s go-anywhere foundations.
“Again, no official specs. But the display unit packs a 2.4-liter MultiAir engine with an output of 180hp at 6,400rpm and 237Nmof torque at 3,900rpm. It also comes with an off-road suspension, as well as a ton of advanced safety features like brake assist, adaptive cruise control, and rear park assist.”
“The MG 6 flaunts a presence that’s a mix of both professional and sporty. Up front, you have a large, intricate grille design capping off a long hood, flanked by a pair of large angry headlights. The fastback silhouette jives particularly well with a red paint finish, and lends the vehicle an energetic demeanor, we think.
“Meanwhile, the interior’s a little busier and more playful than the outside of the car suggests. There’s nice leather covering the dashboard, plus aluminum pedals, carbon-fiber bits, and even a sunroof. Also worth noting is the eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
“Underneath the hood of the MG 6 is a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine capable of 164hp and a juicy 250Nm of torque. This will come mated only to a seven-speed automatic transmission.”

The 16th rollout of Go
Negosyo’s Mentor ME On Wheels was one for the books as it showcased Filipino
creativity and innovativeness during its special installment that happened on
April 8, 2019, at the Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall.
“With the right mindset and level of creativity and innovation, most of
you will shine and persevere in the business community. With Go Negosyo and DTI
working together, and also with the help of the private sector, we will be here
to mentor you especially in areas on how to use and source money to grow your

innovation are considered as great attributes to a successful business model.

performing arts, visual arts, fashion and lifestyle, events, crafts, culinary
arts, digital arts, and advertising and publishing can turn their passion and
creativity into successful enterprises.
Go Negosyo, in
partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry, conducted a special
installment of Mentor ME On Wheels which focused on Filipino creativity and
innovation. The program has traveled long from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and
eyes to reach a total of 30 cities across the Philippines also with the goal to
bring free mentorship closer to every Filipino. The leg was attended by more
than 500 mentees and 100 mentors from the creative and non-creative industry.
The event was also
graced by DTI Sec. Ramon Lopez and Former Presidential Adviser for Political
Affairs Francis Tolentino.
“Ang maganda kasi sa creativity and innovation yun bang it separates
great companies to good companies. What keeps a company going is really creativity
and innovation. Continuous innovation is the key… Big companies would even need
innovation for their business model to continue and even their business models
would have to be innovative otherwise maiiwan po at matatabunan ng ibang up and
coming entrepreneurs. The other good thing about instilling creativity and
innovation in your business model is it really elevates your business model,
value adding,” Sec. Lopez highlighted.
MMOW Creativity and
Innovation presented mentors from the creative industry who imparted their
know-how and technical skills to the participants. Mentors from the creative
industry were Bernie Liu, CEO & President of Golden ABC Inc.; Rajo Laurel,
Fashion Designer and Founder of House of Laurel; Jay Aldeguer, President of Island
Souvenirs Group; Zarah Juan, Founder of Zarah Juan; and 100 more mentors!
Moreover, Go Negosyo mentors from the non-creative industry also shared their
expertise during the event. In the list were Rikki Dee, CEO Foodlink Group and
Joel Santos, Managing Director and President THAMES International –
Entrepreneurs School of Asia among others.
“There is so much creativity in Filipinos. Hindi tayo mauubusan ng
creativity, you know why? Because we’re fun people, we love to enjoy life as it
should be enjoyed. Because of that, we have a very good foundation for
creativity… This theme of creativity and innovation is very timely because to
magnify the creativity of Filipinos we need innovation. Creativity alone will
not bring us to a global platform. It is a good foundation but we need
innovation,” said Golden ABC’s Bernie Liu.

“The clear partnership
and linkage between and among research institutes, private sector, and academe
in the whole technology transfer process promote a dynamic pathway between
technology generation and technology utilization,” said Sec. de la Peña.

served the DOST for more than 30 years, was the TAPI’s first director in 1989.
He is also considered as the father of the Technology Transfer Act for his
crucial role on the law’s creation.
RESEARCH and development (R&D) took center stage last Wednesday, April 3, at the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) 4th National Research and Development (NRDC) Conference 2019. The event revolved around the theme “Harmonized R&D towards Accelerated Growth and Prosperity.”
DOST Secretary Fortunato T. de la Peña said the event highlighted the “R&D initiatives of some of the key players of society — the government, academe, private institutions and civil society.”
