Alternatives to the Isuzu Traviz


The sales figure of light commercial vehicles (LCV) is far from diminutive. Per the tally of the Association of Vehicle Importers and Distributors, Inc. (AVID), 21,624 were sold in the first six months of 2021.

Given the number, it seems that many are depending on vehicles like the Isuzu Traviz. It's poised to be an all-arounder for any business, as Isuzu gave it a name that stands for transport, trading, transcend, and "biz," a snappier title for business. 

On its chassis, a pickup bed, a passenger cabin, or an aluminum or refrigerated cargo hold can be fitted. All of these can make the Traviz into a dropside truck, a shuttle, or a delivery truck to carry 1,660 kilograms worth of payload.

Prices start at P962,000 for the short wheelbase Traviz S, while the longer wheelbase Traviz L goes for P992,000. Considering those prices and the mentioned sales figures, the Traviz isn't alone in the LCV segment. 

Hyundai H100 (P965,000 to P1.005 million)

Available either as a cargo or passenger van, the H-100's 1,080 kilogram load capacity will make sure that goods and passengers will be transported safely and efficiently. At 4,955 millimeters long, whatever may be transported won't be stuffed into the cargo hold.

Kia K2500 (P973,000 to P1.28 million)


The K2500 is supported by a torsion bar spring suspension at the front, and a multi-leaf spring setup at the rear. Its payload capacity tips the scales at 1,235 kg, while the 200 millimeter ground clearance is ready for rough roads or flooded streets. 

Mitsubishi L300 (P804,000)


It's interesting that the L300 has been in the LCV business since the '80s. At present, it now packs a 2.2-liter Euro 4-compliant diesel engine, to make the truck as kind to the environment the same way it is to its clientele. 

Isuzu D-Max cab and chassis (P857,000)
