What makes the Hyundai Starex perfect for family trips?
Updated: Jan 17
What’s inside this Korean van that makes it popular to car renters?
The front fascia of the Starex exhumes class and superior quality with chrome embellishments throughout its short bonnet. It’s then complemented by huge flared halogen headlamps and fog lamps to complete the flashy demeanor.
The Starex has tilting cabin doors that open at a distinct angle for easy ingress and egress, while having dual doors at the back for the passenger’s convenience. When seen from behind, this variant is accentuated with a rear spoiler with high mount stop lamp, which is a perfect match to its cluster taillights.
The best thing about the interior of the Grand Starex is its simplicity and flexibility that doesn’t compromise the comfort of its passengers. Billed as a 10-seater, the seats can be rearranged in a variety of ways to either let more cargo or more people inside – or both.
If you’re on a road-trip, 7 people (including the driver) can fit inside with plenty of space for baggage as the 4th row seats can be tipped up, slid, or reclined. Moreover, the 2nd and 3rd row seats can also be swiveled to allow more cargo options.
With its class-topping wheelbase of 3200 mm, it will make sure that the occupants aren’t cramped up inside. Air conditioning vents are also present up to the 3rd row (with separate controls) so you’re sure that everybody’s cozy during the trip.
Technology and safety
As a people mover, the Starex also makes sure that its passengers are in for a worry-free ride. It’s equipped with dual front airbags, along with individual seat belts for the passengers. The vehicle is also equipped with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Program (ESP). The latter makes sure that the car won’t go off its track even in tight winding roads. Additionally, it also has rear parking sensors for convenience, which is paired with rear under view mirrors for an added set of eyes at the back.
