Car Profiles - Foton Toplander

FOTON TOPLANDER

In what could be Foton's missing link in the market, the Toplander has amenities that are present in most SUVs but undercutting them in price (base model can be had under a million bucks). It could be a winner, only if resale value and reliability are proven plus there are desirable brands for more cash.

The Good: Price is low enough
The Bad: Will it stand the test of time

Price Range: P998,000-P1,150,000
Our Rating: ***
