The Hyundai Trajet (Hangul: 현대 트라제; pronounced as tra-jay, derived from the French word, meaning "travel from one point to another"), ) is a 7-seater multi-purpose vehicle that is manufactured by Hyundai Motor Company. The series was launched in 1999 with the 2.0 GSI models and a choice of gasoline, diesel or LPG power, followed by the limited edition SE 2.7 V6 in 2001.
The Trajet models have three rows of seats. With a number of ingenious seating configurations, they allow for extra luggage space, and with easily removable seating, can accommodate larger items. The front seats can rotate through 180 degrees to face the passengers at the back when the car is stationary, and the back seats can also be turned into tables, making a virtual office space or picnic area.
Used Hyundai Trajet
Standard equipment for the 2.0 GSI and 2.0 CRTD GSI (diesel version) comprise driver, passenger and side airbags, ABS with EBD, power steering, seat belt pre-tensioners, front and rear air conditioning, electric front and rear windows, stereo RDS radio/ CD unit, double folding second and third row seats (second and third row seats are removable), and sliding outer seats on second row.
The Trajet price range starts at £15,495 for the 2.0 GSI manual, rising to £18,345 for the 2.0 CRTD SE Automatic. With around £2,400 worth of extra equipment for only £1,000 more than the cost of the 2.0 GSI, however, the Trajet SE comes with a DVD player, privacy glass, SmartNav satellite navigation, and reversing sensors as standard. It is available with gasoline or diesel engines, and manual or automatic transmissions, prices starting at £16,495.
With the launch of the SE 2.7 V6, all previous Trajet models have been upgraded. The gasoline 2.0 GSI now benefits from the CVVT engine previously seen in the Coupe, increasing power from 133 to 139 bhp (99 to 104 kW), while CO2 emissions fall from 223 g/ km to 208 g/ km. Fuel consumption is also improved — the combined figure (average consumption on town and highway driving) rises from 30.4 mpg to 32.5 mpg, imperial gallons (9.3 to 8.7 L/ 100 km). All Trajets now feature a third three point seat belt in the rear, which means all passengers have the protection of a full seat belt.
Additionally, Hyundai models come with a full five-year unlimited mileage warranty which is transferable between owners. The manufacturer is still the only one in the UK to offer such warranties.
The Trajet competes in the same market segment as Kia's Carnival, and Toyota's Spacia.
