Hyundai New Zealand will launch the mid-duty Hyundai Pavise during July, joining the Mighty light-duty and Xcient heavy-duty models as the brand’s key models locally.

Power for the Pavise comes from Hyundai’s 5.9-litre turbodiesel engine with a power output of 183kW (246hp) and max torque of 853Nm. The six-cylinder engine features ‘low friction’ piston rings and improved cooling performance.

It is married to a new ZF AMT, which continuously monitors the driving scenario to ensure optimal efficiency of the gear shifts and fuel consumption. In addition, Hyundai’s Advanced Eco Roll shifts into neutral gear to improve fuel efficiency and fuel economy by two to three percent by taking advantage of downhill coasting and flat runs.


As the medium-duty model in the range, two wheelbases are on offer – Extra Long Medium at 4900mm and Ultra Long at 5700MM. GVM weighs in at 15,500kg / 12,000kg and GCM, 25,000kg / 21,000kg. The rear air suspension allows for adjustment of the cargo bed height when loading and unloading.

For the Pavise, Hyundai is able to build factory box and refrigeration bodies in Korea.

The driver-focused cab is fully suspended and Hyundai claims it is 31% larger than the industry standard truck. The cab includes a bed and a tip-up passenger seat that provides extra room. The backrest folds flat to provide a flat workstation area. The Pavise even features a heated leather steering wheel.

The five-inch dual-mono TFT in the gauge cluster displays a wide range of information with clarity and easy-to-understand graphics, while the eight-inch touchscreen infotainment unit comes with navigation capabilities. There’s Bluetooth support for smartphones with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.

The Pavise features Hyundai SmartSense active safety technology. These include forward collision avoidance, lane departure warning, vehicle dynamic control, autonomous emergency braking system, electronically-controlled brake system, and both driver and passenger air bags.

A rear view camera provides an extra-wide angle view of the rear when. Water repellent glass ensures water droplets never get a chance to form but flow easily down the glass for excellent visibility.
