The Kia Bongo, also called the Kia K-Series, Kia Frontier or Kia Besta, is based on the Mazda Bongo, and is known for its loading capacity and reliable engine. This model has seen some changes since first being introduced in 1980, but the essentials remain: solid design, good performance, and low maintenance costs, making the model one of the best choices on the market for a pick-up truck. The current generation of Kia Bongos are fitted with one of either a 3.0, 2.7, or a 2.5L diesel engine, offering horsepower and torques of 85 PS/18.5kgm, 80 PS/16.8kgm, and 130PS/26kgm respectively.
Its roomy cabin is designed for comfort. The seats are designed with lumbar support in mind, and the power and tilt steering wheel allows for easy maneuverability of the vehicle and adjustability of the steering wheel's height position. Moving to the back, the 3,110 mm long (standard) and 1,630 mm wide bed of the cargo with a low height of 770 mm affords both ample loading space and easy access for loading and unloading. As for safety features, the Bongo comes with a rear warning system, electronic stability control (ESC) that provides optimized braking and engine torque control through the monitoring of individual wheel speed, steering angle and skidding, as well as driver seat airbags (K2500 only).
