|Dear South Korean Surplus car Dealers; Please do increase the number of units to be imported here in the Philippines; and if not possible give us the cabs..|
Yes it seems to good to be true the new hyundai porter 2 also known here as the Hyundai H100 is getting more and more popular among private and car rental owners alike..
But it seems the Jeepneys here in Bacolod and negros seems to need a fresh new look for this year do we??
well.. it seems the late 2007-2010 surplus porters seems to be one of our best candidates for a new jeepney platform..
|Mr. Park.. could you please throw some south korean junks like these your giving to Mr. Ivan some to Mr. Juan.. : )|
Interior and cabin:
Body and Cab Improvements:
Compared to its predecessors, The Hyundai Porter 2 was much more modern and glamorous thanks to organic LED and crystal lamps on the front. New lights - the first thing that catches the eye, but if we look closely, you can see that has changed almost all the cabin: the new shape of the doors, side mirrors, and more. Like its predecessor, Hyundai Porter 2 - a car-designer. On the chassis can install anything, just to fit the size and capacity.
The Cab is purely utilitarian: rounded, slicked forms promise good aerodynamics. The cab fit solidly, with uniform gaps. Large windscreen and side windows, and spherical mirrors provide excellent visibility. Dimensions Hyundai Porter 2 has a dimension of (length / width / height, mm) - 4750/1690/1930. Slightly Increased cabin Hyundai Porter 2 and units are mounted on a rigid frame made of multi-section steel profile. Access to the engine Hyundai Porter 2 - from the cabin: the passenger seat is raised and fixed focus.
With the increasing number of CRDi equipped surplus vehicles arriving in the local market there are already a handful of skilled technicians who have knowledge on this models of engines.. one of them I know has already done work on a Porter II 126PS owned by a korean national here in the city..
|The Porter 2's cab mounting points are almost the same as that of its 3rd generation predecessor.|
The Porter II's cab have been stretched by almost 10% from the 3rd generation, meaning more legroom, headroom and spaces; but it seems the overall dimensions are the same and its a good news for jeepney fabricators here in Bacolod that will astound them.. the mounting points are the same as that of the 2005, 2006 surplus porters; if the owner does not prefer to buy the original 2.5L CRDi, its just they'll have to modify the dashboard...
So in Closing; we may find the new Porter 2 be plying the streets of Bacolod in the Not-so-distant years.. lets now try appreciating new technologies which seems impossible at first but if we try to embrace it.. it may be the answer to our local jeepney problems...
