Hyundai has whipped the wraps off the Stargazer, with the South Korean carmaker’s new MPV boasting “dynamic” and “expressive” exterior design language and various technologies to make it set a new benchmark for a family-mover.

Outside, a horizontal LED light bar spans the front fascia. The rear end features an H-shaped lighting arrangement comprising a duo of LED items on the tailgate’s left- and right-hand sides linked by a singular light strip. According to the company, “The symmetrical H lamp symbolises balance, unity and harmony.” Fifteen- and 16-inch wheels are on offer. 

The Stargazer measures 4 460 mm bow to stern, 1 780 mm in width and 1 690 mm in height. The wheelbase measures 2 780 mm. 

The exterior carries Hyundai’s ‘Sleek One Box’ typology with ‘One Curve Design’. Hyundai says this design makes the cabin height even more optimised. Practicality is improved thanks to the interior design concept of ‘Multifunctional Storage Space’. Hyundai says this allows Stargazer passengers to feel pampered. The seating arrangement comprises a duo of pews for the front and rearmost occupants and two captain’s chairs for the middle row. A seven-seat set-up is also on offer. 

With all the seats in the upright position, luggage capacity measures 200 litres (behind the third row). However, folding down the rearmost items increases space to 585 litres.

Only one engine option is on offer, a 1.5-litre petrol unit. The four-pot produces 85 kW and 144 Nm of torque. Transmission options include a six-speed manual and CVT. 

“[The] Stargazer is designed with the feel of a spacious cabin and maximum space utilisation while prioritising comfort. This product is specially designed as a new benchmark in its class,” said Woojune Cha, president director PT Hyundai Motors Indonesia.
