Hyundai iLoad

Model Update

At the business end, Hyundai have a vehicle that matches the very best courier and working vans around. A Hyundai iLoad offers superior cargo space, a modern design and powerful performance.

It’s hard to fathom just how far the horse and cart have come. The cutting edge design, engineering and technology used in the Hyundai iLoad is a far cry from even the van driven a decade, or so, ago. The new Hyundai iLoad is superbly safe, and supremely spacious and comfortable to drive. Hidden from view are two choices of engine. The petrol fed 2.4 is smooth and willing, while the 2.5 CRDi is diesel fed and very powerful – with almost 400 Nm of torque available for the full load.

Features onboard the iLoad impress. ABS and EBD come as standard active safety, with ESP and TCS also available on request. SRS airbags are available for both the driver and front passenger. Impact absorbing bumpers and side impact intrusion beams equip the iLoad with strength aplenty. A four speaker sound system, cup holders, electrically adjusted door mirrors, digital clock, and dual sliding doors either side of the van make a working life so much easier. Include the 2010 Hyundai iLoad to your working van fleet.

So you are interested in a van: a big van with a strong engine, a van that has reliability, and a van that has good service backup across Australia. Well, the new Hyundai H1 will easily make your list of “worth a looks”. If you’re checking it out online (which is why you’re looking here), be aware of the naming differences: the Hyundai H1 is called the Hyundai iLoad in Australia.

To look at, from any angle, the Hyundai iLoad has a style that differentiates itself from other big vans working the streets. Hyundai has gone to great lengths to produce a well engineered, and well designed, van for use as a main courier vehicle for working as part of a busy fleet, and as a large people carrier.

The Hyundai iLoad (aka H1) is delightfully practical – particularly with the big gaping doors that slide open on both sides of the vehicle, making entry into the rear sections of the vehicle an absolute peach. The rear door opens vertically, leaving a very wide and easily accessible loading compartment at the rear of the van. By now, most vans have got the art of folding the seats away for larger luggage capacity – and the Hyundai iLoad is no exception. If the luggage area is used to its fullest potential, a smidgen off 5.2 cubic metres can be swallowed in the back of this hardworking machine. You can really load the Hyundai iLoad up and pack it to the brim. Put all the seats up in the Hyundai iLoad and the vehicle will seat 8 in absolute comfort. There are other seating configurations available, as obviously the Hyundai iLoad can fit a number of luggage and passenger carrying capacities.

Inside the Hyundai iLoad, the woven cloth seats are beautifully crafted and supportive. Certainly to look at, and to sit in, the seats are pleasing and certainly mould to the shape of your body with remarkable ease. And as a driver of the van, you will appreciate the height adjustable driver’s seat and the fold down arm rest – the front passenger will also enjoy the arm rest comfort too. The pleasant two-tone interior boasts powered windows in the front, and a grunty 4 speaker sound system with MP3 playing capacity – which will be a welcome luxury item for those riding in the roomy and comfortable Hyundai iLoad. Also provided in the Hyundai iLoad is an auxiliary input jack. The air-conditioning system comes with a pollen filter and works very well to keep the temperature inside the big van a snug and relaxing temperature. If you are one who has to put up with all those little odds and ends that inevitably find their way into a motor vehicle, you will be pleased to know that the Hyundai iLoad is blessed with many practically placed storage compartments for both the front and rear occupants.

Take a look under the hood and you could find the gutsy 2.4 litre petrol motor that is capable of hurling the big van along at 185 km/h. This motor has a five speed manual gearbox as standard. The alternative is the exceptional 2.5 CRDi turbo-diesel motor. One can describe this engine as being, not only a very smooth turbo-diesel when underway but, a power plant which is very fuel efficient. This is quite special when you consider that there is a whopping 392 Nm of torque available between a very low 2000–2500 rpm. The diesel motor provides seamlessly endless power for large and heavy loads – just what you want in a commercial vehicle.

With a lot of weight onboard it is comforting to know that, if required, the Hyundai iLoad has ABS, ESP and two front airbags as standard equipment.

The Hyundai iLoad has all the space you could want in a van; and the Hyundai iLoad proves to be a very competitive package – even if you prefer calling it the Hyundai H1.
