A living legend: Hyundai Starex
But you don’t have to be famous or a star. The premium features of the Starex already make the proud owner feel like one. Its string of awards received since 2001 says it all, elevating Hyundai’s flagship van to the motoring Hall of Fame—from Most Comfortable Ride to Best Safety Features, from Best Engine Performance to Best Full-size People Carrier, to Automobile of the Year. The list goes on and on: Beauty is in the details. But looks can be deceiving because every Hyundai-designed vehicle is not only beautiful but functional. That stylish, curvy exterior is engineered for smoother aerodynamics while on the move, making it stand out all the more in a segment packed with bulky passenger vans. Inside and out, the Starex is designed for relaxation, bonding, and long, happy naps. The long wheelbase not only assures ample legroom, but also makes the ride stable and noise-free even while moving at top speed. The A/C vents distribute the powerful air conditioning evenly throughout the van, while the distinctive double sliding doors make it a breeze to hop in and out of the vehicle. And even if it is famously spacious, there is always a place for everything, and everything has its place. Up front, the two-tiered glove box and overhead console accommodate driver stash while passengers can load their road trip essentials, like water bottles, snacks, or reading materials into the multiple door compartments. Beneath the hood is a beast powered by Hyundai’s signature 2.5L CRDi VGT Diesel Engine with maximum power of 170ps and a maximum torque of 45kg-m mated to a 5-speed Automatic Transmission with H-matic manual mode. This spells enhanced fuel efficiency while allowing the driver optimal gear control.
Hyundai’s all-time favorite van is designed and built to make you the star of your own show in ways that other vans can’t: outstanding comfort with dynamic possibilities. For better journeys, you can only replace a Starex with another Starex.
