They're everywhere in Seoul. But what makes Hyundai and Kia's vans cool isn't the fact that they're narrow enough to navigate the tight urban streets (with just three seats per row instead of four like in most North American buses) or the fact that they have velour drapes for every window. Comfortable seats with BMW-quality leatherette and cupholders for every seat don't do it, either. No, what makes them cool is the fact that almost every bus on the market comes equipped with a five- or six-speed manual transmission. Because bus drivers didn't have enough to worry about as it is.
