Kia Besta for sale Philippines | Kia Besta price Philippines | Gold Kia Besta


The Kia Besta is a van-type vehicle produced by South Korea’s Kia Motors Corporation since the 1980. It ceased to be available in the local market starting the year 2000. The Besta wasn’t a popular van during its time, as it was frequently ‘bested’ by other options in its category, which included the uber-popular Mitsubishi L300 and the better equipped Hyundai Grace. Nevertheless, the Kia Besta is as good a van option as any, offering a great combination of reliability and affordability for those looking for these characteristics in a people carrier.

For those who are wondering why the Besta was discontinued, it was eventually replaced with a more upscale version, the Kia Pregio. However, instead of following the Kia Besta design, the Pregio more closely resembles the Kia Bongo J2, which is basically the Besta’s ‘kei truck’ counterpart. The Besta did continue to be produced alongside the Pregio until the former was eventually phased out. The Kia Besta is still a popular 2nd hand car today with many enticing features for a business or family. Read below to find out more.

Kia Besta Review in the Philippines

Kia Besta Specs and Performance

Two engine options power the Kia Besta’s three available trims—one is a 2.2-liter diesel OHV four-cylinder engine, while the other is its 2.7-liter sibling. The 2.2L manages 62 hp, while the 2.7 provides 80 hp and 165 Nm. All of the Besta’s three trims were made available with either engines. A 5-speed manual gearbox is the solitary transmission option. For many former owners, an anemic engine was one of the biggest complaints. Still, the Besta made up for this unimpressive performance with good fuel consumption.

Kia Besta Fuel Consumption

The introduction of the 5-speed manual transmission imbued the Besta with durability, smoother gear shifts, and better fuel efficiency. The Kia van is a front engine/rear-wheel drive type vehicle, which meant it lumbered using the old transmission. The 5-speed gearbox was indeed a welcome change.

Second hand Kia Besta fuel consumption:

  • Kia Besta 2000: 9.4 l/100km average rating
  • Kia Besta 1999: 9.8 l/100km average rating
  • Kia Besta 1998: 9.6 l/100km average rating
  • Kia Besta 1997: 9.8 l/100km average rating
  • Kia Besta 1996: 9.0 l/100km average rating
  • Kia Besta 1995: 8.8 l/100km average rating


Kia Besta Features

Kia Besta Convenience and Entertainment Features

Creature comforts inside the Besta are what you’d expect from a mid-priced van. They’re not exceptional, but these features score some major points for durability and reliability. Also, you can always upgrade your van’s obsolete accoutrements to what’s current in the market, such as sound systems, air conditioning units, etc., to enhance its comfort.

  • Radio cassette player
  • Central locking
  • Height-adjustable steering column
  • Air conditioning
  • Hydraulic power steering

Kia Besta Safety Features

Because of the fact that it’s been decades since the Kia Besta was last seen in the brand new market, safety features inside the van are quite dated. Make sure the second hand Besta that you buy comes with fully functional safety features to get your money’s worth.

  • Anti-lock Braking System
  • Driver and front passenger airbags
  • Locking differential
  • 14-inch disc brakes
  • Central locking

Kia Besta Design

Kia Besta Interior

Three trim levels comprise the Kia Besta line—two 12-seaters (Basic and EST trims) and a solitary 17-seater (De Luxe).

Other notable interior features include:

  • Urethane steering wheel
  • Fabric seating material
  • Manual seating adjustment
  • Air conditioning
  • Radio cassette player
  • Dome lights


Kia Besta Exterior

Though the Besta wasn’t a huge hit in the Philippines, it was actually a bestseller in certain markets, most notably Brazil, where it speedily became the biggest selling minivan during its initial release there. The boost in sales was because of the van’s perfect blend of looks and performance—many Latin American countries enjoyed the Besta’s compact yet handsome body. If you like the way the Besta looks, then you’ll be further impressed by these exterior features:

  • Halogen headlamps
  • Tinted glass
  • Side hinged rear door
  • Rear window wiper
  • Body color bumpers
  • Body stripes

  • Ebony Black
  • Beet Silver Metallic
  • Oxford White

As mentioned, 2000 was the last year that the Besta was sold in the Philippines.
