2008 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Hyundai i800

This all-new people carrier looks a good bet for people with their own tribe or football team because – with eight seats – it goes one better than what has become the MPV norm.

There is bags of space for, um, bags; it is powered by a newly developed 2.5-litre turbodiesel engine that drives the rear wheels, and, true to Hyundai form, it arrives with a sensible price tag of £19,495 and an unlimited mileage, five-year warranty.

Inside is more estate car than minibus, with privacy glass, a six-speaker sound system and air-con throughout. And with fuel costs high on everybody’s mind right now, the i800 turns in a healthy 33.2mpg.

MM verdict: a lot of car for the cash.
