2019 Hyundai H1: Now with 12 Seats

Hyundai H1 1

The Hyundai H1 is one of the popular entries in the people-moving minivan segment and now the range has been bolstered with a 12-seater version. Here's how much it costs.

The Hyundai H1 recently received an update in 2018 and now for 2019, the range receives a 12-seater derivative. For those wanting to carry large numbers of people, the 3-3-3-3 setup is available, but customers can fold the final row of seats down to increase the luggage capacity. 

“The H-1 has been a top-seller since we launched it in 2009, and last year’s make-over combined with the addition of an extra row of seats have really added features that will attract many more buyers in this segment,” says Stanley Anderson, sales and operations director of Hyundai Automotive South Africa.

The Hyundai H1 features a 2.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine, which delivers 125 kW and 441 Nm which drives the rear wheels via a 5-speed automatic gearbox.
