HYUNDAI GRAND STAREX ROYALE
SPOTS A DYNAMIC NEW LOOK IN LATEST FACELIFT
SHAH ALAM, 23 November 2016 - Family favorite MPV, the Hyundai Grand
Starex Royale, has been given a makeover, featuring an exciting new look,
making its presence on the road even more distinct and bold.
The most evident cosmetic change to the exterior is the front chrome grille that
carries an entirely new and original look. "The all new Grand Starex Royale 2017
facelift comes with a superior bold look that can best be described as daring,
fearless and brave,” said Mr. Lau Yit Mun, Managing Director of Hyundai Sime
Darby Malaysia (HSDM).
“Breaking away from the previous design and identity, the aero dynamic side
cladding and bent high glossy black sculpture rear design sees the Starex being
transformed totally,” Lau added.
While the earlier version has a more traditional grille that sits just above the front
bumper, the 2017 facelift has a grille design that continues downward and
become part of the bumper design. This naturally add changes to the fog lights
on the front bumper. While the Grand Starex Royale wins hands down as a
favourite and affordable family MPV, the new design will also be equally
appealing to the younger generation, which makes it an ideal MPV for everyone.
Overall it is suitable to all Malaysian.
Hyundai first produced the Grand Starex Royale in 1997 which made its debut in
the Malaysian market in 1998. Since its inclusion into the Hyundai product range,
the Grand Starex Royale has not stayed docile and has grabbed numerous car
awards in its category, both locally and abroad.
