The Hyundai i800 is simply a colossus. This mighty MPV has room to seat eight adults, and carry their luggage, in comfort. It's so incredibly practical that www.motors.co.uk called it “an absolute wonder when it comes to transporting people” – fine praise indeed.
The i800 looks imposing – and it is, with a massive 842 litres of luggage space even with all the seats in use. Sliding side doors make access easy, and the cabin is well designed, with user-friendly controls and a high driving position. Newer versions have a leather steering wheel and gearstick, and a height-adjustable driver's seat to help ensure you're comfortable.
On the road, the i800 is enjoyable and comfortable to drive: quick, agile, refined and balanced, with slick gears, strong brakes and responsive steering. It's equally at home on twisting back roads, motorways and even tricky terrain. In its latest incarnation, the model is powered by a punchy four-cylinder 2.5-litre CRDi diesel engine, which comes in two guises: a 134bhp version or a 168bhp variant. Top speeds are 104mph and 112mph respectively, and fuel economy gets up to 38 mpg in the less powerful engine.
Equipment levels are generous too: standard kit on 2008 to 2014 models includes air conditioning with separate controls for the middle row, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, electric mirrors and a heated driver’s seat. Safety equipment includes two airbags, electronic stability programme, anti-lock brakes and traction control.
In all, the Hyundai i800 is an excellent value vehicle, which packs a lot in for a reasonable price. What’s more, if your chosen model is under five years old, you’ll benefit from the remainder of the manufacturer’s warranty. At Carwise Group, our used car dealers have plenty of options for you to choose from.
