The Hyundai Trajet is a South Korean multipurpose 7-seater minivan manufactured by Hyundai Motor Company from 1999 to 2007. The model is based on an elongated Sonata IV platform. The name of the car comes from an expression in French, literally translated as “travel from one point to another.” The car was manufactured in the South Korean city of Ulsan. In 2001, a version with a turbo diesel equipped with a common-rail was released, and in 2004 the model underwent a facelift.
The Hyundai Tradjet had three rows of seats and seven seats, and the interior had ample opportunities for transformation: for example, the front seats could be turned 180 degrees while parked. In the Korean market, the model also had versions with six and nine seats.
Four-cylinder engines with a volume of 2.0 liters were installed on the car: gasoline with a capacity of 133-147 hp and diesel with a capacity of 113-126 hp in combination with a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic transmission. Under the hood of the top version were a V6 2.7 gasoline engine developing 173 hp (the version for Korea – 185 hp) and an automatic transmission.
In 2004, Hyundai Trajet was updated and received a new two-liter gasoline engine. The production of the model continued until 2008. This car was replaced by the Hyundai Entourage.
Hyundai Trajet is a real family car, both in spirit and in embodiment. Outwardly, this minivan is no different from most other minivans of that time.
The driving position is comfortable and designed to cover long distances with ease. In versions with automatic transmission, the selector is located on the steering column, with manual transmission, the location is quite traditional.
But inside, he falls in love with anyone who loves comfort, convenience, interior transformation and plenty of space. Hyundai Trajet has three rows of seats for seven passengers.
At the same time, each seat has separate adjustments, and here we are talking not only about the angle of the back, but also the adjustment in length, and the front seats can also be adjusted in the longitudinal direction.
The 2.0-liter Hyundai G4GC engine was assembled at the plant in Ulsan from 2000 to 2011 and was installed on such popular models of the company as the Sonata, Tucson, Kia Seed, Cerato and Soul. This unit belongs to the updated Beta II line and has an analogue for L4GC gas fuel.
The 2.7-liter V6 Hyundai G6BA engine was assembled at an enterprise in Korea from 1999 to 2012 and was installed on top versions of such popular models as Sonata, Magentis, Santa Fe, Tucson. There was a gas modification of this power unit under its own index L6BA.
The 2.0-liter Hyundai G4JP engine was produced from 1998 to 2011 at a plant in South Korea under license, because structurally it was only an analogue of the Mitsubishi 4G63 power unit.
The 2.0-liter diesel engine Hyundai D4EA or Santa Fe Classic 2.0 CRDi was produced from 2001 to 2012 and was installed on almost all mid-size models of the manufacturer of that time. This motor was developed by VM Motori and is known as the Z20S on GM Korea models.
