As a member of Thailand Elite, you deserve to travel in style. That’s why you have as a perk limousine transfers to and from the airport, to your hotel, and vice versa.
If you’re looking to live for the long-term in one of Thailand’ cities, you will need to consider getting your own form of transportation. That, of course, is the car.
Now, when Thailand opens its doors again to tourists following the COVID-19 lockdown, Phuket is one of the areas considered as a tourism corridor. Of course, there are many reasons to pick Phuket to be your second home in Asia. Because you’re part of the Elite, you definitely want to pick only the cars that are best for Phuket!
We’ve compiled a list of 10 supercars that you could choose from. Each of these packs a powerful engine, promising a truly wonderful ride for the owner and passenger. So, without further ado, here are the top 10 cars you can buy in Phuket.
Toyota Corolla Altis Hybrid
Enjoy both the longevity of a gasoline-powered engine and the convenience of an electric-powered engine with the Toyota Corolla Altis Hybrid. You can comfortably cruise through the streets of Phuket with its 1.8-liter petro-electric engine outputting just roughly 120HP. This is perfect for those who are just looking to enjoy a leisurely drive!
The MG ZS is the ultimate in driving comfort. The cabin is loaded with useful driving tech in the dashboard to guide you along the way or keep you entertained. The suspension is very comfortable to drive, and the upholstery similarly so.
This one is a luxury SUV with all the driving and passenger comfort you can ask for. The HS is an upgrade over the earlier ZS and MG in terms of both engine power and comfort. Armed with a 7-speed auto transmission and a 1.5-liter petrol turbo engine, the HS puts the nail into the coffin with an unparalleled range of driving tech.
Honda Accord Turbo
The Honda Accord Turbo is for those who doesn’t like looking flashy, but still wants to keep an edge. This sedan’s interior is less sleek as the Vantage and less intimidating as the Jaguar, but it makes up for interior space and driver comfort. With only 190 horsepower to its engine, the Accord is for those who are more cruisers than racers.
Right next to the Accord is the 320D by BMW. Also sporting a 190-horsepower engine, the 320D is testament to BMW’s commitment to its sedan product line. You’ll enjoy nothing less than the cruising power and driving comfort that BMW’s sedans are known for.
Mazda 3 2.0
Sporting a look that’s decidedly European, the Mazda 3 2.0 offers nearly the same power as the Accord and 320D. Powered by an engine that’s mated with a 6-speed auto transmission, this car outputs only 165 horsepower. Still, this monster can still turn heads around with its sleek exterior design.
Toyota GR Supra
Who doesn’t know the Supra? It’s now in the Thai market, and is perfect for cruising one sunny day through Phuket’s suburban thoroughfares on the way to check out Phuket real estate properties. Its BMW-like exterior styling will make you the apple of everyone’s eye, with its 340-hp engine will keep you juiced up and happy.
The exterior speaks of unparalleled power, but the Jaguar I-Pace’s striking feature is its electric engine. The battery can output 400-horsepower for this SUV. Its single power transmission could be a turn off to some, but there are others who’d love the convenience of harnessing this beast’s power with just the throttle.
BMW M2 Competition
Don’t let its seemingly relaxed visuals fool you. While not as fast as the Aston Martin Vantage, the M2 Competition can still manage a whooping 410 horsepower from its 3.0-liter petrol-turbo engine. The biggest plus to the M2, however, is its adjustable chassis. You can customize it to suit your handling preferences.
Aston Martin Vantage
You won’t go wrong with the slick, glossy and streamlined look of the Aston Martin Vantage. Beneath the hood, the car is powered by a 4.0-liter engine that can produce up to 510 horsepower and is coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
