The Hyundai iLoad has been named as Glass’s Used Van Hero for July, offering toughness and reliability alongside strong specification and value.
Each month, Glass’s commercial vehicle editors hold a meeting to name the current Used Van Hero in the UK market – the model they believe offers outstanding value, quality and ability.
Andy Picton, senior commercial vehicle editor, said: “The iLoad is not very well-known and doesn’t sell in large numbers but, to our mind, is one of the best used LCV choices on the market.
“It is a good looking, very reliable and practical van that has bags of equipment as standard spec. The only real downside for buyers is that there is no specialist van dealer network support from Hyundai. However, overall, we believe that it is an excellent choice for our first ever Used Van Hero.”
Picton highlights some key points that make the Hyundai iLoad a Used Van Hero:
USED VAN HERO: Hyundai iLoad 114 Comfort
WHY? Tough and reliable van, good engine, decent specification and has driveway appeal
