    Toyota Lite Ace

    The Toyota Lite Ace has been a well-known nameplate in the country. It was relaunched in 2022 as a commercial vehicle that would serve as a reliable workhorse.

    Toyota Lite Ace

    A 1.5-liter gasoline engine powers the Lite Ace, producing 98 hp and 134 Nm of torque. Just like the Carry, Toyota’s commercial vehicle also gets a five-speed manual transmission.

    The Lite Ace also comes in four body configurations: Pickup, Panel Van, Cargo, and FX. With its specifications being almost the same as the Carry’s, their prices are also not far apart. The Lite Ace is priced from P645,000-P737,000.

    Mitsubishi L300

    The Mitsubishi L300 is another strong contender in the commercial vehicle market. It offers a balance between affordability and practicality, making it a popular choice among budget-conscious businesses. The L300 is known for its durability and low maintenance costs.

    Mitsubishi L300

    Under the hood of the L300 is a 2.2-liter intercooled turbocharged engine that delivers 97 hp and 200 Nm of torque, making it more powerful than the Carry.

    The L300 is available in five body configurations: Dropside, FB, Aluminum Van, Cooltech Ref Van, and Modern PUV Class 1.

    Compared to the Toyota Hiace, the Mitsubishi L300 is slightly pricier as it comes with higher specifications. Pricing for the L300 ranges from P813,000-P998,000.

    Isuzu Traviz

    Another model that has been making a name in the commercial vehicle segment is the Isuzu Traviz, known for its reliability and durability.

    Isuzu Traviz

    The Traviz is powered by a 2.5-liter diesel engine that delivers 76 hp and 176.50 Nm of torque. This engine is also paired with a five-speed manual transmission.

    Four body applications are also available for the Traviz — Utility Van, Dropside Truck, Aluminum Van, and Refrigerated Van.

    The Traviz also comes in a higher price range of P987,000 to P1.047 million.

    Verdict

    The Suzuki Carry faces stiff competition in the commercial vehicle segment. As we have explored, the Toyota Lite Ace, Mitsubishi L300, and Isuzu Traviz are all formidable rivals, each offering their own unique features and advantages.

    Ultimately, the choice between these commercial vehicles will depend on individual preferences, specific business requirements, and budget constraints.
