Fancy a vacation with the family? Cup holders and a cargo curtain help keep things organised, as do the separated foldable rear seats with a 60:40 split that provides extra luggage space when you need to squeeze as much as you can into the compact SUV.

Each H1 model comes with a 5 year or 100 000km warranty for added peace of mind.
