Hyundai PH Launches Improved Starex Cargo


Hyundai Philippines wants entrepreneurs to get into some K-style with the Grand Starex Cargo. Announced last year, the carmaker is highlighting some of the advantages of picking this for your next logistics, or maybe even mobile coffee van or pet grooming van.

For starters, it has a front-mounted engine design cuts down on noise, vibration, harshness and heat, and absorbs the impact in the event of a frontal collision, protecting the driver and front passengers.


Next, its longer body translates to 1,224 kilograms of payload capacity—higher than most pickup trucks! So, you have the freedom to flex that space. 

Third, the driver’s space is neatly organized with vehicle information and the familiar buttons and switches that are more intuitive than fancy or distracting, while loading and unloading is a breeze. The twin-swing rear doors and the signature dual sliding doors that conveniently open on whichever side you’re at allow you to attend to more customers while giving them a better view of what’s inside.

Fourth, partition panels serve as a safety barrier between driver and cargo. While available dual SRS airbags and ABS come together to give you added protection and control. Throw in a 5-year warranty and you’re in for better journeys all year ‘round.


Finally, Grand Starex Cargo’s three variants are powered by a 2.5 CRDi engine mated with 6-speed transmission to provide the power to get you through the coming months of mounting traffic and the fuel efficiency to help you save on operational costs.

The Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo starts at P 1.475 million, and is now available for order at all authorized Hyundai dealerships nationwide.

  1. I'm assuming the Staria Load (commercial van version of Staria) won't be sold here, and will be exclusive only as a passenger van (pero ang bagal ng HARI, talo sila sa mga gray importers). Same strategy Toyota did, old H200 for cargo and new H300 for passenger.

    1. Likely. The Staria Load would probably be too expensive for our market, so they'll probably keep the Starex in cargo trim for as long as they possibly can.

  2. WHICH DEALER HAS THE STAREX CARGO ON HAND ? CAN THE DRIVER SEE THE CARGO ROOM ? IS THE PARTITION GLASS OR METAL ?

  3. 2 airbags standard on a cargo vehicle while for passenger cars Hyundai makes do with 1 airbag. Stupid product planners.
