The new H-1 is the answer when a regular, car-based station wagon is just not big enough. With a choice of nine or twelve seats, the wagon is at home in a variety of business and leisure roles –
as a hotel shuttle, for tourists on sight-seeing trips or for taking sports club members (and all their gear) to the big event. The strong, modern exterior is complemented by a comfortable, convenient and spacious interior. And because it’s a Hyundai, reliability and economy are part of the DNA.
The scene is typical of modern living. The H-1 effortlessly whisks agroup of colleagues – or perhaps old mates – from the city to the airport. The travel arrangements are in order, bags are packed, and the excited babble is about the developments the next few days will bring. The wagon is in its element in these circumstances, so easy to get into and out of. With nine or twelve seats, it has all the space needed by the travellers, and their luggage and a superb interior enhanced by flush-fitting side windows for great visibility. In fact, every element of the up-to-the moment design is like an assurance that the journey will be a success.
The wagon that's just like a car
Hyundai’s design team has developed an interior equal of those in most of today’s high class passenger cars. You only have to look at, or to feel the great fit and finish of the components, and to appreciate the achievements of the designers, engineers and technicians. Comfortable and convenient, spacious and flexible, stylish and luxurious – welcome to the twelve-seat H-1. In this quiet cocoon of sanity, the driver and passengers lack nothing of any substance. The general sense of roominess is helped by having the gear lever located on the central console, thus helping to create a full-length floor that is flat and safe.
There’s no denying the messages sent out by the muscular, purposeful looks of the van version. In the busy city and out in the boondocks, Hyundai’s latest van is the lifeblood of commerce. Packages to collect here and to deliver there, always against the clock, always with the utmost reliability. With a spacious cargo area, low running costs and high levels of refinement, this is the vehicle you told us you need.
