And looks seriously ugly too. :(

Though, like Steer says, the depth and breadth of the Hyundai protfolio is simply amazing.

That's an excellent concept that needs to be emulated (or rather enforced) in India. In their quest for load-maximising, most truck makers in India have shifted to flat load beds which involves raising the height of the load bodies. This results in higher CG, a common cause of overturning.

It can be made up by changing other parameters like tire construction, # of plies, width tire pressure etc.
