Why Rent a Pregio Car in Bandung
If you’re coming with only 4 or 5 persons within your group, then hiring a Toyota Avanza would be just enough. However if you’re planning to come to Bandung with a larger group of people such as 7 or even 9 persons, then you might want to consider a larger type of transportation.
Pregio is a 10-seater van manufactured by KIA Motors. This 4-door van has a length of 4,820 mm, width of 1,810 mm, and height of 1,970 mm. This 2,476 cc van can have maximum speed of 142 km/h. Unlike the MPV type which uses gasoline as fuel, KIA Pregio uses diesel as its fuel. Beside in Indonesia, KIA Pregio is also available in South Korea and Brazil under different names. Classified as a light commercial vehicle, KIA Pregio is a perfect choice if you want to explore the city of Bandung with ease.
Just like other kinds of transportation, KIA Pregio has also some safety features installed, such as safety belts, dual air bags, and central lock. It also has air conditioner with double blower system to ensure the comfort of the passengers sitting at the middle and the back seats. However unlike the Toyota Avanza and Toyota Innova, most Pregios still don’t have power window system. The windows are still operated manually. This might not be seen as a drawback, as this kind of system might be preferable if you’re planning to go to the Safari Park where you can open the window manually to feed the animals within the zoo.
There are several reasons why people hire this Pregio car in Bandung:
Hiring Pregio Car in Bandung is Affordable
Unlike the other types of diesel vans, Pregio is considered a very affordable type of van which can accommodate up to 10 persons (without baggage) or up to 7 people (with baggage). So if you’re traveling on a tight budget, then Pregio could be your best option.
It has Slimmer Body
If you’re planning to explore the crowded areas of Bandung, then hiring a large van is not a very wise option. In this case a KIA Pregio would be a better alternative to choose as it can go through the streets much more easily than larger vans. Furthermore, the back seats can also be folded to create more free space to store your extra luggage.
The Cons of Hiring a Pregio Car in Bandung
Aside from the pros above, there are also other cons of hiring this Pregio.
It has limited space compared to bigger vans
If you’re traveling with a large group of people, then you might want to choose for larger type of van, especially if you also have a lot of luggage within your group.
It is not recommended for far distance
If you’re planning to travel quite far, say from Jakarta to Bandung, or from Bandung to other cities, then KIA Pregio is not the best option here. In this case a larger van would be more suitable for your need. However if your travel itinerary is only within the city of Bandung, then you can still use this KIA Pregio throughout the journey.
It has less power than gas operated vehicles
Just like any other diesel operated vehicles, Pregio isn’t as powerful as Toyota Avanza or Innova. Therefore if you’re traveling within a group of up to 5 or 6 people and your itinerary includes visiting mountainous regions, then you might want to consider hiring a Toyota Avanza or Innova instead a KIA Pregio.
