India’s MPV market has grown like a weed in recent times. And guess what? Hyundai might just be eyeing India for a 2024 launch of their Stargazer. This compact MPV has been around since 2022, making waves in countries like Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines. And with the kind of response it’s been getting, Hyundai’s gone ahead and unveiled a new ‘X’ variant at the GIIAS 2023.
Hyundai Stargazer X
This Stargazer X? It’s like the cherry on top. It’s got a bunch of premium features that make it stand out. I mean, just look at those silver accents on the grille—reminds me of a race flag fluttering in the wind. And those triangular headlamps? They’re something else! It’s like Hyundai’s trying to give the MPV a fierce, robust personality. And don’t even get me started on that full-width LED strip on the bonnet. It’s a beaut!
The side? Well, it’s pretty much the same as the standard version. But those squared wheel arches and the black trim? They give the Stargazer a sporty edge. And those 17-inch wheels with the Goodyear tires? Pure class.
Now, the rear of the Stargazer is something you can spot from a mile away. Those H-style tail lamps are hard to miss. And the triangular lighting? It’s like Hyundai’s trying to make a statement. Inside, the Stargazer X is all about luxury. Leatherette upholstery, red stitching, Bose speakers… it’s like being in a high-end lounge.
Hyundai Stargazer Features
But what really caught my eye? The tech features. Wireless phone charging, an 8-inch touchscreen, ambient lighting, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. And the safety features? Hyundai’s not skimping out. The Stargazer’s got a whole suite of them, from forward collision avoidance to lane keeping assist.
Performance-wise, the Stargazer X is sticking with its 1.5-litre engine. And the price? In Indonesia, it starts at around INR 17.67 lakh for the Style variant. Not too shabby, right?
So, there you have it. My two cents on the 2023 Hyundai Stargazer X MPV. It’s a solid contender in the MPV market, and I’m eager to see how it fares in the coming months. Until next time, keep those engines revving!
