Overview & Review:
“Hyundai Grand Starex facelift gets a redesigned front grille adding premium looks to the van. Slim headlights add up to sleekness giving the Starex a luxury feel”
Hyundai’s are usually cursed for their non-premium looks and cheap plastic interior in the room. While the Korean manufacturers provide competitively cheaper vehicles than the others, people will pay extra for the looks and feel if they have some extra bucks in their pocket. However during the past year and so there seems to be a change in the trend of styling and design in Hyundai’s lineup which can be noticed right from Hyundai Sonata to all the way Grand Starex. This means that Hyundai is finally launching its vehicle up to the mark in order to compete and claim the market shares. Hyundai Starex, therefore, has now differentiated itself from the regular people carrier vehicle. As for the lower trims of 2nd gen Hyundai Grand Starex 2019, they remain the same while the higher-spec trim has availed all the updates stated.

The 17’inch wheels add to the styling and beauty of the van paired with side steps boards. The premium look further extends to the interior of the van where the two-tone interior is offered to serve as a more up-notch look.
