马来西亚五十铃近期举办了试驾活动，让媒体和网红亲身体验并探索五十铃Elf Smoother NPR 150 和 Giga EXR 420卡车。《卡客车新闻》受邀参与这项在实地城会展中心（Setia Alam Convention Centre）宽敞的露天停车场举行的试驾活动。
我们试驾的第一辆卡车是Elf Smoother NPR 150。搭载4HK1-TC 欧III涡轮增压中冷柴油引擎，最大功率150PS，转速在1,600 至2,600rpm之间，可以发出404Nm的最大扭矩，配备Smoother，也就是运作更平顺的六速手自排变速箱 (AMT)。
该款卡车的车门可打开至90度，并具有更长的把手、更大的踏步区域和更宽的驾驶室地板，因此能够很轻松地爬进驾驶室。我们对这辆 7.5 吨卡车驾驶室的第一印象是它相当宽敞，具有扩大的头部间隙、垂直立柱和座椅后方的大空间，可以舒适地容纳三个成年人。
