The Korean car manufacture Hyundai has produced the microbus Hyundai H-100 / Hyundai Grace (on the Asian market) since 1986 - 2004. This model was famous on the national market due to its low price (in comparison with the Japanize analogs), the fine quality of the fitting, quite luxurious for the micro cars interior trim and the possibility for the transformation of the cabin. So, the seat back of the front row could be turned around and could be unfolded to get the big sleeping berth. The rear seat at its standard position did not leave the spare space for the baggage, so it could be fully fold up ahead. And if there was a necessity, they could be demounted to transform the microbus into the wagon.
The salon had the installed individual management for the heating and the ventilation. Also there were a lot useful ash trays and small pockets. By the driver the one-and-a-half seat was situated, but it was tight for two passengers there. The floor-standing shifting handle and the pedal unit were very close to the driver. The inclined windscreen with the wide antidazzling strip narrowed the observation, though the all-around looking was quite good due to the construction of the side mirrors.
All models of the Hyundai H-100 were equipped with the 2.5L diesel engine with the capacity of 78 hp or 2.4 L 120 hp gasoline power unit, but the last one was less economic. It was also installed the 5-level manual transmission.
The driving control is typical for the wagon with huge windage, so even at the speed of 90-110 km / h, the car began to lean. The front suspension was torsional, the rear one was dependent sprung.
The front disk brakes were not out of place for the microbus. The improved sound insulation was rather good.
You should also take into consideration that the passive safety at the head-on impact was missing.
The Korean Hyundai H-100 is much cheaper than the similar Japanese version is the cause of its success among the countries with the rather low profits of the population.
