Enhanced Hyundai H-1 revealed
A regular sight on the country’s roads since its launch in 2009, Hyundai South Africa has introduced a revised version of its H-1 panel van and minibus.
Available once again as either a nine-seat bus, panel van or six-seat Multicab combination model, the entire range benefits from a redesigned grille and front bumper, with the bus and Multicab receiving 16-inch alloy wheels versus the van’s steel rollers.
Inside, the interior has also gone under the knife with the fitment of a brand new instrument cluster and slightly reshaped centre facia.
Along with the appearance upgrades, standard spec has gone up a notch with cruise control now fitted as standard on the van and Multicab, with the latter adding Bluetooth for the first time.
Boasting a payload of 1 100 kg, power remains unchanged with both continuing to make use of a 2.5-litre CRDI turbodiesel engine that makes 125 kW and 441 N.m of torque. A five-speed automatic is again the only transmission available with fuel consumption rated at 9.8 L/100 km and emissions at 257 g/km for both models.
Standard equipment includes a two-speaker MP3 sound system with USB, electric windows with one-touch down function for the driver, air-conditioning, coloured coded bumpers, height adjustable front seats, auto lock/unlock doors, keyless entry, dual front airbags and ABS with EBD.
Completing the range, the bus also remains mechanically as is with the diesel being supplemented by a 2.4-litre petrol that produces 126 kW and 226 N.m of torque. A five-speed manual is entrusted with sending power to the rear wheels with Hyundai claiming a combined fuel consumption of 10.2 L/100 km, and emissions of 240 g/km.
Comfort items include a four-speaker audio system with Bluetooth and USB, electric windows, rear park assist, colour coded bumpers and door handles, electric mirrors, front and rear foglights, auto lock/unlock doors, dual front airbags and ABS with EBD. Building on this, the diesel also adds automatic climate control, cooled glovebox, side airbags and cruise control.
A five year / 150 000 km warranty and five year / 90 000 km service plan is standard across the range.
