Hyundai is delving into the Australian light commercial vehicle market with its new iLoad three-seat van and six-seat crew van variants.
Both are serious workhorses aimed at meeting the needs of logistics customers, designed to rival current European and Japanese offerings.
The Hyundai iLoad in both van and crew van configuration is offered with the 129kW 2.4-litre petrol engine and five-speed manual transmission, and the high-output 2.5-litre CRDi turbocharged and inter-cooled diesel engine capable of 125kW and 392Nm with a choice of five-speed manual or five-speed Selectronic automatic transmission.
Clever optional twin-swing doors accept two fully laden pallets straight from a fork lift, whilst the standard single-piece tailgate lifts to create an awning allowing obstruction free loading from any side.
The Hyundai iLoad van features a single row of seating for three occupants with a dedicated driver's bucket seat, the iLoad crew van adds another three seats in a second row plus a load space partition with inbuilt window for maximum driver’s rear vision.
Dual front airbags, remote keyless entry (two remote keys are standard), alarm and Anti-Skid Brake System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (ABD) are all standard.
At launch, the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Traction Control System (TCS) will be optional with the high-output CRDi engine. ESP and TCS calibration for the 2.4-litre petrol engine variant is currently under development and will be brought to market as soon as possible.
