The Hyundai i800 is a van built by the car manufacturing juggernaut, the Hyundai Motor Company in South Korea, and in Indonesia. It is the second generation of the original Hyundai H-1 series (it was called the Hyundai H200 in The Netherlands). It is also known by many other names, including the Hyundai iMax, the Hyundai iLoad, and most notably and most popularly, the Hyundai Grand Starex.
Production of the first generation of the i800 started back at 1997. The modern i800, or the second generation started being manufactured at 2007. The i800 was improved to provide more storage than the first generation of itself and to perform at better levels, containing a much stronger CRDi engine with a 2.5 litre, 4-cylinder in-line with a Variable Geometry Turbocharger, wherein the first generation utilized a 2.5 SOHC 8-valve turbodiesel engine. It includes a total of 8 seats, 2 of which are small seats, and 6 are full-size normal seats. The i800 comes in both manual and automatic transmissions, with a 5-speed and 4-speed type, respectively.
The Hyundai i800 has evolved from a long line of predecessors, but has truly been perfected, which is why it has earned consecutive awards from 2003 all the way to 2008, including "The Best MPV".
