Which rental truck is preferable: KIA Bongo or Hyundai Porter?

28.07.2016
A competitive review of the KIA Bongo or Hyundai Porter. Both cars are excellent, and they are equipped with powerful diesel engines. The trucks are comfortable and ergonomic. Therefore, a choice depends on the drivers' preferences.

When it comes to trucks for a small business, we think of Japanese cars, especially of cars with a right wheel. It's known that they are reliable and unpretentious.

However, there is an alternative that is also Asian. Two of these trucks are the Korean Hyundai Porter and KIA Bongo. You can rent a car without a driver to find out which one is preferable.

How do these cars look like?

The cars are typical utilitarian tonnage trucks with standard cabins. They are small, so you can easily maneuver on city roads and drive to the center of any big city. Supersize trucks are strictly prohibited in a city center.

The KIA and Hyundai are analogues. Therefore, their exterior designs are similar. But headlights, fog lights, and radiator grilles are different. The rest parts are the same.

Usually, trucks' trunks are too high from the ground, but the Korean cars' trunks are slightly lower. The most lifting truck is KIA Bongo – 1,000 kg. The capacity of the Porter is 995 kg.

Cabins

The Hyundai Porter has the most respectable interior. Wood inserts on the panel and leather upholstery are associated with a business sedan of the previous years. The KIA Bongo's interior is simple, but its ergonomics are excellent. The dashboard is well readable, and all control elements are evident. The Koreans cars can accommodate three passengers. Also, the central seat can be transformed into a mini-table with a comfortable pad and cup holders.

How do these cars drive?

The Korean cars are equipped with diesel engines. The Kia is equipped with a 123bhp engine, and the Hyundai has a 126bhp engine. The Hyundai is equipped with an automatic transmission, and the KIA is equipped with a manual transmission.

Diesel engines of the KIA and Hyundai show good traction at low speeds and good elasticity. Therefore, you can quickly drive in the city traffic. Of course, the Porter with an automatic transmission is suitable only for patient drivers, but there is no need to constantly switch the gears. Fuel consumption is reasonable – about 14 liters. Handling is easy and clear, and the suspension doesn’t provide shaking while driving on bumps.
