It’s a Yuletide gift from Hyundai to you.

Ever since its introduction in the local market, the Hyundai Starex has primarily been considered as a family vehicle. Its long wheelbase offers lots of room for little tykes and adults alike, and the large and welcoming double sliding doors make it easy to get in and out of.

In connection to that, Christmas is the season for the family. It’s the usual time to go out somewhere as a group to view the Yuletide cheer that’s spread all around the city. As such, Hyundai is making it easier to acquire a Starex through the MerrygaLOW Promo.

This is a pretty good deal because apart from being spacious, the Starex is already a proven platform. It’s been around since 1997, and its 2.5 CRDi VGT diesel engine is smooth, reliable, and suitably economical for the Starex’s size. It’s also powerful since it can make up to 170 horsepower and 441 Nm of torque.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic gearbox or a five-speed manual for the lower-spec variants.
