The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

HYUNDAI has given the popular H1 nine-seater bus a makeover, which in­cludes 17-inch al­loys and a new in­fo­tain­ment cen­tre with a large touch­screen.

The steer­ing wheel now ad­justs for reach as well as height a rear cam­era is an op­tion on the H1 2.5 Tur­bod­iesel Bus.

“The H1 has never re­ally aged since we launched it in 2009, but the new makeover has re­ally given it a mod­ern look and a bold ex­te­rior that will at­tract many more buy­ers in this seg­ment,” said Stan­ley An­der­son, sales and op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor of Hyundai Au­to­mo­tive South Africa. He said the six-seater Mul­ti­cab de­riv­a­tive has been dis­con­tin­ued from the range, but in­di­vid­ual or­ders can still be placed.

The re­freshed H1 Bus is still avail­able two en­gines: A 2 359 cc petrol en­gine, (126 kW/224 Nm) with a fivespeed man­ual gear­box; and a 2 497 cc tur­bocharged diesel en­gine (125 kW/441 Nm with a five-speed au­to­mat­ics.

Prices for the three mod­els start at R499 900 for the H1 2.4 Ex­ec­u­tive Bus petrol, which in­cludes Hyundai’s five-year or 150 000 km war­ranty, and a five-year or 90 000 km ser­vice plan.
