Mitsubishi Fuso Rosa vs. Toyota Coaster

The noticeable difference between a Mitsubishi Fuso Rosa and a Toyota Coaster is the capacity. The former can double as a full-fledged bus while the latter is more like a minibus. Up to 30 passengers can fit inside a Rosa while the Coaster can only offer up to 21 seats, including the one for the driver. Since the Coaster has less seating capacity, it has smaller dimensions, making it ideal for narrow roads in towns or rural areas. If you want a bus built for urban traffic, then the Coaster is definitely the better option. On the other hand, if you want a bigger commuter vehicle that is truly durable enough to withstand tough conditions, then you should go with the Mitsubishi Fuso Rosa. It’s perfect as a touring bus, especially since it has a bigger passenger capacity.
