Hino XZU730L Review
Hino XZU730L Overview
The Hino XZU 730L is the range-topping model in the light-duty lineup of trucks from the Japanese commercial vehicle maker. Available with a Euro-4 spec diesel engine as standard, the Hino XZU 730L is a six-wheeled truck, which is basically a long-wheelbase version of the smaller Hino XZU 710L.
Hino XZU730L Interior
Apart from the exterior design, even the entire interior cabin design of the Hino XZU 730L has been lifted off from the smaller Hino XZU 710L. The overall layout of the cabin feels cheap, boring, and underequipped, however, it scores high on practicality, due to a number of storage spaces in the center console of the dashboard, glove boxes on the co-passenger side, and other bits here and there. The driver’s cockpit of the Hino XZU 730L, however, look not so inviting with a very dated and plain-looking instrument console and steering wheel.
Hino XZU730L Exterior
The overall design of the Hino XZU 730L completely resembles the smaller Hino XZU 710L, but given its longer wheelbase and length, it definitely has a much more prominent stance. The Hino XZU 730L looks decent, but not modern enough to match the other new and latest offerings in the market.
The Hino XZU 710L comes with a decent looking front profile, which looks like it has been divided into two parts. A large windscreen with nicely curved lower edges forms the upper half of the front fascia. The lower edges of the windscreen form the mounts for long rearview mirrors.
Moving downwards the front windscreen, there is a simple-looking white-colored plastic apron, below which the main grille is placed. The grille in question here is a black colored H-shaped unit, which has a large prominent logo of Hino at the upper center of it. Along with the logo, the upper side of the grille has a slim black garnished panel as well.
On both the sides of the grille, there are main headlamps placed, which are shaped in the form of trapezium and have tilted upper sides. These headlamps look sizeable but are very plain with an all halogen setup for illumination. The black unpainted bumper at the bottom of the frontal look of the Hino XZU 710L doesn’t get fog lamps as standard but have provisions for the same.
Moving towards the side, the simplistic approach of the design of the Hino XZU 710L continues with a very plain looking design for the door panels and window, which have a tapering down the waistline.
Hino XZU730L Ride & Handling
This is where the differences between the Hino XZU 730L and the smaller Hino XZU 710L become much more apparent. The overall chassis of the Hino XZU 730L is an extended version of that of the Hino XZU 710L, with the former being longer and better in terms of load-carrying capacity.
The suspension combination of semi-elliptical leaf springs with double-acting shock absorbers at the front and semi-elliptical main and auxiliary leaf springs with double-acting shock absorbers at the rear is the same as that in the Hino XZU 710L and prove sturdy enough for the purpose.
The braking system of the Hino XZU 730L is a combination of a hydraulic system for two leading shoes for front and rear serves for the service brake and a mechanical internal expanding type on the transmission output shaft for the parking brake.
Hino XZU730L Engine & Fuel Consumption
The engine in the Hino XZU 730L is the same 4.0-liter water-cooled inline-four diesel engine with intercooling and turbocharger, which powers the smaller Hino XZU 710L as well. Coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox, this engine here in the Hino XZU 730L makes a maximum power output of 150 PS and a maximum torque output of 420 Nm. The top speed of the Hino XZU 730L is rated at 117 kmph.
Hino XZU730L Braking & Safety
Except for a lockable compartment and seat belts, there are no major safety features present in the Hino XZU 730L, which make it feel further less equipped in nature.
Hino XZU730L Verdict
The Hino XZU 730L has a substantial loading capacity over the smaller Hino XZU 710L on which it is completely based on, in both the aspects of styling and equipment list as well as mechanicals underpinning them.
