The top engine is a 2.5-liter common-rail diesel that makes 170 horsepower and 289 pound-feet of torque. In Korea and Europe, it can be ordered with either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. In other markets, a 2.5-liter turbodiesel, rated at 100 hp and 166 lb-ft, is offered with a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual.

Hyundai also offers a 2.4-liter four-cylinder gas engine, rated at 170 hp and 165 lb-ft.

Among the features of the new H-1 are dual sliding side doors, a backup warning system and 16-inch wheels and tires.

Production starts in August.
