Hii ni upuss. Welding niya Oti akiwa na njaa alafu filler mingi mingi kama matope. Verdict: This bus is twice as heavy as a normal bus should be, poorly constructed, and cannot last three years before it loses glitter.

I belong to a group of enthusiastic bus-spotters. Over the past few years, there has been a Scania F330 bus on sale, an 11-liter, 6-cylinder beast fitted with an 8-speed manual transmission good for 330hp and the most charismatic engine note if you are into that kind of thing.
The bus was phased out in favour of the current F310, a 9-liter, 5-clylinder creation with a 6-speed transmission making 310hp that doesn’t quite sound right, turbo whine notwithstanding.
Well, my fellow bus fans were up in arms; and their lack of affection for the F310 was immediately made apparent. They did not want to believe that something as abstract and arbitrary as “Euro 4 emissions standards” could lead to the death of their favourite workhorse, but unfortunately for them, it did. You see, the F330 developed 1350Nm of torque, while the F310, with its lower power figure, actually makes MORE torque: 1550Nm. In the world of commercial vehicles, torque is everything.
Economy is also everything: the F310 is more economical than the F330, and is cheaper. That may explain why despite the F330’s popularity, the F310 has outsold it several times over and is (and has been) the best-selling full-size bus model in the country.
