H1 Panel Van ticks all the right boxes, and carries them too
Hyundai Automotive South Africa’s H1 Panel Van was turned into the ultimate load-lugger with the addition of a turbodiesel derivative to the range.
With its reputation already established in the popular H1 nine-seater wagon, the 2,5-litre common-rail unit was added in this capacious carrier at the beginning of 2011. A 91 mm bore and a 96 mm stroke results in smooth operation from idle to red line, while a 16-valve 4-cylinder and all-aluminium construction confirm it to be of a thoroughly modern design. Headline numbers remain unchanged and on a diet of 500 ppm diesel it produces 120 kW at 3 800 r/min and 392 Nm at 2 000 r/min.
