Which is better suzuki carry vs daihatsu hijet?

I know that most of us at some point have found themselves comparing two good vehicles, and in my situation, I have found myself comparing the Suzuki carry vs Daihatsu Hijet. It would be interesting to know what you guys think and whether any of you has owned both of these mini trucks and which they feel is more superior than the other.

The choice of kei really depends upon your needs and expectations to determine which model is the best for you. If you just need a simple Kei truck for basic work and enjoyment, then the Daihatsu Hijet is the perfect choice. Those seeking customization to the cabin and more interior options may wish to purchase the Suzuki Carry. Both are quality Kei Trucks. Each of the models has proven themselves to be a reliable truck. The current model of Diahatsu Hijet is more in line with modern aesthetics and design. The cabin is offered in a high top. Dash options have been updated. The engine, as with most of the generations of this model, has been updated. Its equipped with a turbo engine, giving more power. Alongside the boost to power is a focus on the safety features and performance of the Diahatsu. Sensors have been added to the model to help with breaking. The overall design has become sleeker. Yet some boxy features may put off certain buyers. If you need ta good Kei truck for deliveries, agricultural use, or just for off-road use, the Daihatsu Hijet is a great option. Now let's look at the most popular Kei on the market, that is the Suzuki Carry. Suzuki Carry’s basic model includes a high cabin. Within there are several features within, such as the 40ᵒ and 20ᵒ chair lay-backs. Also available are power windows, doors, and power steering. Depending upon the model and generation that you choose, you will have the option of either a 3 or 4 gear 5 speed shifting.

The Daihatsu Hijet and Suzuki Every are both manufactured by the known Japanese automakers. They are known in the market because of their reliability, versatility, maneuverability, and unique design. Daihatsu Hijet is designed to have a spacious cabin, carry large cargo, and can be used in various jobs such as agriculture, retail industries, transportation, and even for personal use. Whereas, Suzuki Carry also offers safety features including SRS airbags, power steering, power lock doors, keyless entry, power mirrors, seatbelts, anti-lock braking system, and electronic brake-force distribution. According to me, I feel Suzuki carry is better than Daihatsu Hijet.

Suzuki Carry and Daihatsu-Hijet are reliable and economical minitrucks but based on the features that they have the Suzuki Carry is more modern with design interiors.

Suzuki Carry is a little heavier compared to Daihatsu. But Daihatsu has 4 Spd automatic transmission, whereas Suzuki has only 3 Spd automatic transmission. But I personally like Suzuki Carry, I feel it's stronger than Daihatsu and has survived the abuse from the usage of all these years.

Both cars are without a doubt two of the most popular microvans in the market, in and out of Japan. They are almost the same in every aspect.
