HYUNDAI iLOAD 2017
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: It has substantially less cargo volume than the market-leading HiAce (4426 litres vs 6000 litres) but offers numerous features the venerable Toyota can't match, including one tonne-plus payload capacity, the ability to carry pallets, a choice of rear door options, greater power and torque, superior driver comfort and unmatched warranty/service/customer support. While not perfect it's a great all-round package worthy of serious consideration.You can read the full review here.
The 2017 Hyundai iLoad carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2000 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Hyundai iLoad Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai iLoad here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Hyundai iLoad 2009: Can I replace the engine?
I don't believe there is one, but try the Castlemaine Rod Shop (03 5472 2853) as they do a lot of that sort of thing and might have something they could help you with. If they don’t you could have the conversion done by a Vicroads accredited engineer, but it would an expensive exercise and I would think it would be more economical to buy a replacement diesel engine for your van.
Hyundai iLoad: How reliable is the engine and turbo?
The key to getting a decent run out of the iLoad is to change the oil more frequently. Change it every 5000 km. But if you’re not sure about its reliability certainly walk away. The HiAce is probably the best bet for you, but you could consider a VW Transporter, Mercedes-Benz Vito or Renault Trafic.
Hyundai iLoad 2015: Common problems?
The iLoad was plagued with turbocharger problems, but that was put down to inadequate servicing. It was determine that more frequent oil changes were needed to avoid the problem. Check the car you’re looking at to make it has been regularly serviced, and preferably every 10,000 km at the maximum, not the 15,000 km that was recommended.
Do Hyundai iLoad turbochargers 'blow up'?
The problem was caused by sludge building up in the oil and starving the engine and turbocharger of oil. It was recommended that oil changes should be done much more frequently than the recommended 15,000 km/12 months to keep the oil fresh and clean.
Buy the latest model you can afford and have it serviced every 5000-7000 km. Do that and you should have a good run.
