Hyundai iLoad (2009–2015)
Great value for money thanks to generous specification that includes air conditioning, twin front airbags, ABS and central locking.
Large load bay can cope with up to 4.3 cubic metres and 1062kg to make the iLoad one of the best medium-sized panel vans.
As well as two side-hinged rear doors, the iLoad has twin sliding side doors and can also be ordered with a lift-up rear tailgate in place of the two rear doors.
Punchy 2.5-litre turbodiesel is good in town and on the motorway. It’s also very refined and the five-speed manual gearbox has a light, precise action.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment, however there is no seatbelt reminder system.
The iLoad can feel a little nervous at higher speeds in crosswinds when it’s lightly loaded.
Only available in a single body style, though there is a crew van option, which limits the iLoad’s appeal to some buyers.
Glazed rear doors means security is not quite as good as it could be. We’d also like to see ESP made standard for the iLoad.
Engine of 2009 i800 suffered piston through block at 35,000 miles and less then 6 years old. Full service history.

Drivers would feel a lack of power form the engine and a possible smell of diesel. If the diesel pipe starts to leak and it is not replaced immediately is it possible for the pipe to split and the vehicle will break down. The diesel form the fuel filter will leak onto the road. Fix: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and replace the fuel pipes from the fuel filter to the high-pressure pump with a modified component.
