The launch of the small Hyundai Chorus bus, which occupied a niche between minibuses and medium buses, began in the very beginning of the 1990s and lasted until 2000. When developing the Hyundai Chorus, constructive solutions of the rather popular Mitsubishi Fuso car were used. This circumstance largely determined its reliability.

Hyundai Chorus was produced in two versions of the body: Long (long) and Standart (standard). Structurally, Hyundai Chorus was a classic one-volume carriage bus layout. The location of the power plant and gearbox is the same as that of the closest relative, the Hyundai HD65 / 72/78 (Hyundai Mighty) truck - above the front beam. Body dimensions of the Hyundai Chorus Long 7080/2035/2755 mm with a wheelbase of 4085 mm. Dimensions Hyundai Chorus Short - 6345/2035/2755 mm, and its wheelbase - 3350 mm.

The standard configuration option for Chorus provided three types of seating design with a total number of seats 14 + 1, 15 + 1 or 24 + 1. In the Long variant, the layout was carried out according to the formula 24 + 1, 28 + 1, or 29 + 1. The internal dimensions of the bus as standard were 5498/1800/1792 mm.

The line of Hyundai Chorus engines was represented by four diesel units. The 3.3-liter base engine developed 115 hp. at 3,400 rpm The 3.9 liter engine had three modifications: 120 and 155 hp. Euro-I, as well as 131-strong Euro-II. Powerful, economical and reasonably reliable engines Hyundai Chorus deserved popularity due to the fact that their failures occur very rarely. The dynamics of the bus is such that even with a basic power plant acceleration to 100 km / h took 20 seconds, and with the most powerful - 14 s, which is a good indicator for cars of this class.

The bus was equipped with a manual gearbox. The drive to the rear axle reducer was carried out by means of a cardan shaft. As an option, it was possible to equip the Hyundai Chorus with an LSD cross-wheel lock system.

Car front suspension dependent spring or air bags with a crossbeam; back - spring or pneumatic belts and a continuous bridge. Both front and rear Chorus has anti-roll bars.

Hyundai Chorus suspension effectively copes with minor defects of the roadway, with high-speed traffic on the highway there is no longitudinal swaying effect common to most buses. The anti-roll bars of the front and rear axles protect the machine from lateral tilting. At the expense of the hydraulic booster which is included in the standard package, the steering of the Hyundai Chorus is light and quite informative, quite comparable with the control of a car.

The simplicity of the design solutions used on the Hyundai Chorus, such as pivot steering, leaf spring suspension and an unpretentious turbo-diesel engine, is what made this car one of the best in the class of small buses. The most expedient is its use in the field of passenger traffic in urban conditions and outside the city, where the capacity of the minibus is already insufficient, and the use of a large bus is economically unprofitable due to increased operating costs, and also as a corporate vehicle. The most preferred option when buying a Hyundai Chorus from the "second-hand" version is with a 3.9-liter engine 3.9.

Despite the completion in 1998 of the main production of Chorus, due to the successful combination of the price and quality of this car, it continued to be produced in parallel with the successor to Hyundai County until 2000. Similar Korean cars are KIA Combi and Hyundai County.
