Hyundai has revealed the 2018 Hyundai Grand Starex for South Korea. The people mover has received a facelift ten years after it first arrived.
The Hyundai Grand Starex has incorporated a new modern front fascia with Hyundai's signature Cascading grille flanked by sharper, rectangular headlamps featuring projector lights, a more dynamic bumper and reshaped fog lamps. Hyundai has raised the hood higher to reduce the impact on the pedestrian in case of a collision. At the rear, the 2018 Hyundai Grand Starex gets a revised license plate housing and tweaked tail lamps with LED lighting.
Like the front, the interior of the 2018 Hyundai Grand Starex has substantial changes. Highlights include a new 4-spoke steering wheel that looks more car-like, a completely redesigned dashboard, centre console and air vents and Hyundai’s 5th generation infotainment system with an 8-inch floating display.
The 2018 Hyundai Grand Starex is 5,150 mm long, 1,920 mm wide and 1,925 mm/1,935 mm/1,970 mm (4WD) mm tall. It is available in 9-seat Urban, 11-seat Wagon, 12-seat Wagon, 3-seat Van and 5-seat Van versions. The new Grand Starex’s 2.5-litre diesel engine produces 140 PS and 36 kg.m (353.04 Nm) of torque in the manual transmission model and 175 PS and 46 kg.m (451.11 Nm) of torque in the automatic transmission model. As an option, customers can go for the 2.4-litre LPi engine that develops 159 PS and 23 kg.m (225.55 Nm) of torque.
The 2018 Hyundai Grand Starex’s prices in South Korea start at KRW 21,100,000 (INR 12,55,970.115). The new people mover’s international rollout should commence next year.
