HARI showcases the Modern Jeepney Class 1, which it will present at the Roads and Traffic Expo Philippines at the SMX Convention Center from October 1-2, 2019.

This modernized jeepney is a 13-passenger conveyance that boasts a fuel-efficient motor and modern-day amenities.

Powering the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is a 2.5-liter CRDI diesel motor with 130hp and 260Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox..

Tuend more for fuel efficiency, it promises cheaper maintenance is more miles for the driver and his passengers.

And yes, cleaner emissions as it complies with Euro-4 standards.

Apart from this, it has a Load-sensing Proportional Valve that adjusts the suspension according to the load for a more balanced ride.

In line with the Department of Transportation’s PUV Modernization Program, this one features CCTV cameras, a GPS navigation system, reverse camera, and the like.

It’s all designed to make traveling in and around the city more convenient and comfortable.

Expect to see this ride with other Modern PUVs at the Expo and plying our roads real soon.
