The Kids Want a Hyundai iMax N “Drift Bus”

Parents also want the Hyundai iMax N “Drift Bus.” We think this should be much more than a unique experiment.

This is proof that minivans have a bright and wonderful future ahead of them! Mark our words: They will make a comeback! Well, maybe not but all of we at Motor Illustrated Towers would opt for a minivan almost any day as we’re all parents. And the Hyundai iMax N “Drift Bus” would be on the top of our want-list.

The lads down-under at Hyundai Australia created this super-van to demonstrate that “N” can be many things. The basic Hyundai iMax minivan got a one-off “N” treatment where the standard 2.5-litre CRDi diesel 4-cylinder engine got binned and replaced with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 engine good for over 400-horsepower and 409 lb.-ft. of torque. The 5-speed automatic transmission is replaced with an 8-speed unit and the rear differential gets a once-over.

Everything else about the Hyundai iMax, or nearly, gets the “N” once-over too. The suspension lands electronically-controlled dampers, i30 N 19-inch wheels and a series of interior upgrades such as a steering wheel and upgraded seats.

As you can see, the drifts come easy. Fun fact, Hyundai Australia says that with 8 passengers aboard, the weight distribution moves to a perfect 50/50 balance.

Sadly, the Hyundai iMax N “Drift Bus” will not be produced. We think, however, the time is perfect for Toyota to consider Matt’s idea of tracking a Toyota Sienna SE AWD next year…
