Despite having a four-speed automatic transmission, the Ertiga consumes about 9-10 km/L in city driving. On the highway, you can expect it to have an average fuel consumption of around 20 km/L.

The second candidate on the list of “MPV cars in the Philippines” is Honda BR-V

However, we think this  BR-V is still a nice seven-seater MPV Philippines for fuel economy. According to ARAI-tests, Honda BR-V performs well at around 8,8 km/L when driving in the city; meanwhile, a 30-minute drive on the highway with a 90km/h gives back 21 km/L.  Hence, the Honda BR-V is pretty great at an affordable price.

Suzuki XL7 (29 Points): Php 1.073.000

Another seven-seater MPV Philippines entry into this list is Suzuki XL7. This vehicle comes with a 1,5-liter K15B engine similar to its siblings the Suzuki Ertiga and Suzuki Jimny.
