What you see above is the Hyundai i800 as known as the H1 over in Korea. Not exactly the most inspiring design in the Hyundai portfolio, but if you have a huge family and a tight budget, you can't go wrong with the new 8-seater.

Tony Whitehorn, managing director of Hyundai UK said: “anyone wanting to carry eight people in car-like comfort currently has to take two cars – or spend a lot more than £20,000. We think the i800 will prove massively popular with families and businesses who need to move people in style.”

Even with eight people seated in the vehicle, the i800 still has 851 liters of space in the boot – twice as much as the average estate. Thanks for this space must go to the vehicles exterior dimensions, length stands at 5.125 metres and the width measures at 1.920 metres – try getting that into a tight parking sport before getting your 6 children out the back. Power comes courtesy of the new 2.5-litre four-cylinder CRDi diesel engine, which is intercooled and features a variable-geometry turbo power peaks at 170hp.

The i800 will go on sale in the UK on 20th June with a price of £19,495.
