Hyundai launches range of small cargo carriers
Hyundai offers small goods transport solution with launch of Grand i10 and Atos Cargo models
Hyundai are looking to answer the needs of business owners looking for a small, safe, economical transport vehicle with a versatile range of Cargo models.
Converted Grand i10 and Atos Cargo hatchback models are two of the extremely versatile vehicles in Hyundai’s local range, offering a secure 1.2 cubic metre loading space. Hooks to secure goods or a cargo net and a strong wire mesh barrier between the cargo area and the front seats are simple yet effective modifications that transform these hatchbacks into working class heroes. Rear side windows are also covered with a strong wire mesh to keep goods safe.
Three derivatives are on offer in this configuration including the Atos 1.1 Motion Cargo manual, Atos 1.1 Fluid Cargo manual and Grand i10 Motion Cargo manual.
These models cater for the need of a small cargo transporter, particularly for delivery of smaller parcels that need to be kept in a secure cargo hold.
Making business sense
The Grand i10 and Atos 1.1 have also been homologated as commercial vehicles, which comes with the added benefit of allowing business owners to claim back the VAT on their purchase.
The Hyundai Cargo models are a very good substitute for half-ton bakkies, which are very popular for a wide variety of business needs and offer a very competitive cost of ownership.
The Atos and Grand i10 models that these commercial variants are based on are well known for offering excellent reliability. This is further backed up by a seven-year/200 000km warranty.
