Spyshot Hyundai Grand Starex 2021, rekaan hadapan serba baru?

Hyundai Grand Starex Minivan dengan 4 baris penumpang popular Malaysia iaitu Hyundai Grand Starex ditemui sedang dipandu uji atas jalan. Beberapa intipan sudah dilakukan namun samaran yang digunakan agak baik, sehingga sukar untuk melihat apa yang berubah. Hyundai Grand Starex masih mengekalkan badan yang panjang dan lebar, sesuai dengan statusnya sebagai MPV 4 baris penumpang. Ciri ‘van’ yang masih dikekalkan dapat dilihat pada cermin sisi yang bersambung di bahagian cermin tiang A (A-pillar).

Hyundai has unveiled even more photos of the possible Starex replacement just a week after its teaser and it appears that the space-age look isn’t the only stand-out design for the Hyundai Staria. Also read: Hyundai Staria teased, is this the Starex replacement that's coming to Malaysia? The Korean carmaker says that the Staria provides a preview of space innovation and the overall look is based on an inside-out approach.

Hyundai Staria teased, is this the Starex replacement that's coming to Malaysia?

This is our first glimpse of the Hyundai Staria, the Korean carmaker's upcoming multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). Characterised by a smooth silhouette and clean lines, the Staria won't look out of place in your usual sci-fi movies. Take a look at the front fascia with its Robocop-ish prominent LED strip that runs the width of the hood. The strip gently flows into the sides which - other than the fancy wheels - have low belt lines and expansive windows, features that should lend to a rather airy cabin

Spyshot: Lower-spec Hyundai Staria spied, hours after teaser photos

Well, this is rather interesting. Earlier today, Hyundai dropped several teasers of the upcoming Hyundai Staria – essentially their upcoming sliding door MPV. The particular unit teased by Hyundai is a “Premium” variant, evident from its large alloy wheels, luxurious captain seats, ambient lighting, and large infotainment display. Now, Korean publications have begun publishing photos of what appears to be a lower-spec Staria, evident from its steel wheels and unpainted side mirrors. That said, t

Spied: RHD 2021 Hyundai Staria caught testing in Thailand – Is this the reborn Estima?

Last week, Hyundai officially released more photos of the 2021 Hyundai Staria and it wouldn’t be surprising if the designers’ mood board contains Daft Punk, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and NASA because it looks so futuristic. However, we recently discovered spyshots of a Staria undergoing testing in Thailand courtesy of Car News Update. Based on the photos, the camouflaged Staria was decked out in black cladding but we did see glimpses of the dark grey paint job. The overall shape is looking more lik

So, the sliding doors on your MPV decided to fail on you. It could be a Toyota Alphard, Toyota Estima, Toyota Sienta, Nissan Serena, Hyundai Starex, or a Kia Grand Carnival.

Still want a recond Vellfire? All-new Hyundai Staria debuts from RM99k in Korea

Over in Seoul, Hyundai has launched the all-new Hyundai Staria, a spacious MPV with a price range of 27 million won (RM 99,547) to 41 million won (RM 151,165), depending on options. Aptly named the Staria, Hyundai’s new MPV evokes the streamlined form of a spaceship, defined by a single stroke running from the front to the rear of the vehicle. According to Hyundai, this is inspired by the curve of light that illuminates the Earth’s horizon at sunrise when viewed from space. The Hyundai Staria is

The soon to be introduced Hyundai Custo compact MPV might be coming to Malaysia

When Hyundai Motor Group announced that their brand-new plant located on the outskirts of Jakarta, Indonesia will focus on sedans, compact SUVs and compact MPVs, it got us thinking, is there a possibility we will see Hyundai offering up a compact MPV in Malaysia? At the moment, Hyundai still does not have a compact MPV to offer, the only MPV they have is the Grand Starex, which is a full-size higher end MPV. But earlier this year, spy shots of a heavily camouflaged Hyundai MPV surfaced in China.

The price of the 2020 Kia Grand Carnival with 11 seats has been revealed to be RM 175,088 on the road without insurance. But what’s more surprising is that the 11-seater will replace the Grand Carnival with 8-seats entirely so there is only 1 variant. As predicted, the 11-seater Grand Carnival will be powered by the same 2.2-litre diesel engine that dispenses 200 PS and 440 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed conventional automatic gearbox. This means that the Grand Carnival will sit
