1999 Hyundai TRAJET concept
HYUNDAI MOVES PEOPLE WITH TRAJET It’s pronounced "tra-ZHAY," in case you were wondering, and it’s French for journey. Hyundai’s first conventional minivan is a fairly conventional effort, as it turns out, with dual airbags, a 140-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a 170-hp 2.7-liter V-6 powerplant, and a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. Slotted in the smaller, nimbler category of family haulers, the Trajet is a little smaller than the new Mazda MPV; its rear seats don’t disappear into a load floor like the MPV, but do release and roll away for maximum storage area. You’ll have to head to Asia or Europe to drive a Trajet: it’s not going to make the journey to North America – that’s to be the job of the Sedona, the 2001 minivan coming form new Hyundai subsidiary Kia.
