Refreshed 2016 Hyundai iMax and iLoad Series II on-sale in Australia

The refreshed 2016 Hyundai iMax and iLoad Series II have gone on-sale in Australia sporting key styling and specification updates.

THE REFRESHED 2016 Hyundai iMax and iLoad Series II people mover and commercial vehicle have gone on-sale sporting new-look grilles, front bumpers, wheels and foglights, and folding wing mirrors (iMax). The radio aerial has also been repositioned. But it’s what’s on the inside that really counts, with Hyundai making a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Siri Eyes Free (iOS) and Google New (Android) voice activation as standard across the range.

iMax Series II variants now get a “premium” steering wheel and gearknob. Both iMax and iLoad Series II variants feature steering wheel-mounted audio controls. iMax Series II also now includes climate-control front air-conditioning. Second- and third-row iMax Series II passengers still have access to dedicated separate manual air-conditioning controls and roof-mounted air vents.

iMax and iLoad Series II carry over Hyundai’s 2.4-litre DOHC sequential MPI petrol (127kW/224Nm and either five-speed manual or four-speed automatic) or 2.5-litre CRDi turbo-diesel engines with either wastegate-type (100kW/343Nm and either six-speed manual or five-speed automatic) or more potent variable-geometry turbocharging, depending on transmission (125kW/441Nm and either six-speed manual or five-speed automatic).

Improvements to safety, and standard across the commercial and passenger variants, include driver and outboard front passenger side (thorax) airbags these are in addition to the existing dual front SRS airbags. For diesel automatic variants cruise control is now standard on iMax and iLoad Series II. Both iMax and iLoad Series II liftback variants also now come standard with a rear-view camera. The camera image adds to the existing four-sensor rear park-assist system on iMax variants, and is displayed in the new seven-inch touchscreen.

iMax Series II comes standard in eight-seat configuration. Available with either liftback tailgate or optional twin-swing rear doors, iLoad Series II comes in either three-seat Van or six-seat Crew Van configurations.
