    "Fantastic value and feels more like driving in a car than a van!"



    We just bought a 2016 Hyundai i800 Se after driving a 2016 Santa Fe.
    Sure, it doesn't have as many bells and whistles, but it took us across Europe very comfortably, and although the accelaeration was not as sporty like the Santa fe was (to my preference as it would make me feel sick when my DH would put his foot down!) It was fast overtaking, and my other half was pleasantly surprised by it!
    Infact, by the end of the week, he was no longer mourning the loss of the Santa Fe, and was quite proud of our new purchase!
    It handled well, did not feel like riding in a van, but much more car like than any other van we have rented over the years, and in black, it looks rather smart.
    We now have room (LOADS of room) to spread out and take plenty of luggage and or bargain finds back from Europe, and the kids were super excited when they realised that it has colour changing mood lights in their cabin, so that was the final winner for them!
    Compared to almost double the amount we would have had to have paid to get a mercedes Vito, or a Transporter, I think we got a pretty good deal and we aren't embarrassed to be seen in it!
    With 5 kiddies, (and NO WE AREN'T CATHOLIC!) it was the best choice for us!
    No one promised it was a MacClaren or a Lambourgini, and it shouldn't be measured against one!
