Hyundai’s entry into the compact MPV segment is finally here.
The 7-seater Hyundai Stargazer is powered by a 1.5-liter Smartstream engine that produces 113hp and 144Nm. This is mated to Hyundai’s Intelligent Variable Transmission (iVT).
The Stargazer stands out with its futuristic exterior. It has a boldly styled skid plate, flush-type radiator grille, unique multi-face reflector headlights, and a horizontal LED strip that cuts across and integrates the daytime running lights and positioning lamps.
A PVC-fitted delta glass between the A-pillar and flag-type side mirrors as well as the quarter glass melded toward the back provide better visibility.
Completing the sharp look are 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, sleek bumper and rear skid plate, and distinct H-signature taillamps.
Inside, there’s a 4.2-inch TFT-LCD instrument cluster, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless phone projection for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two device holders, and six chargers including a wireless power charger below the main AC panel. Storage won’t be a problem as there are 31 storage spaces incorporated into the dashboard, center console, seats, and door trims.
In terms of safety, the Stargazer is equipped with six airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, and rear parking sensors with camera. It also comes with Hyundai SmartSense, the brand’s advanced driver assist system that incorporates forward collision assist, lane keeping assist, blind spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross traffic alert, safe exit warning, driver attention warning, high beam assist, and lane follow assist.
The Hyundai Stargazer is available in three variants at the following introductory prices:
- 1.5 GL IVT: P998,000
- 1.5 GLS IVT: P1,128,000
- 1.5 GLS Premium IVT: P1,218,000
All variants are available in four colors: Creamy White Pearl, Magnetic Silver Metallic, Dragon Red Pearl, and Midnight Black Pearl. The MPV comes with a five-year/200,000km warranty (whichever comes first) and is now available in Hyundai Motor dealerships nationwide.
