According to Hyundai, both provide an alternative to a half-ton bakkie, a segment currently occupied by the Nissan NP200.

Grand i10 Cargo returns as Hyundai's flagship car converted van.

Having launched the new Grand i10 last year, Hyundai has re-introduced the Cargo panel van converted model while also announcing availability of a load-lugging version of the Atos.

Said to offer an alternative to a half-ton bakkie, a segment currently only occupied by the venerable Nissan NP200, both the Grand i10 and Atos Cargo lose their seats in favour of a flat floor while gaining wire mesh in front of the rear windows and a metal mesh cargo partition between the boot and front seats.
