Hyundai H1 Starex — a spacious minivan at an affordable price

05.08.2015

Hyundai H1 Starex — is the largest of three minivans made by the Korean company. This kind of car can be described as something between a station wagon and a van.

It is perfect for travelling to the country with a big family and for carrying things. And this makes this class quite popular.

The minivan Hyundai Starex looks like a minibus. It is available in versions for 6, 9 and 12 passengers. The H1 has a simple design as it is designed for business trips to carry passenger or things.

The main advantages of this minivan is inside the car. The 6- and 9-seater versions have very comfortable seats. They can be moved easily and the seats of the middle row can be rotated. All seats are equipped with personal lightning. There is “upper” and “lower” air supply in the cabin and can be easily controlled by the passengers. The rear seats can be folded, in long journeys they can be arranged as beds.

From the analysis of the Hyundai H1 Starex operation in Russian conditions there are following conclusions:

The car has a high quality assembly and good protection from corrosion. Even if you buy a second-hand Starex, you can be sure it is reliable.

Despite its large size, the minivan is easy to drive and it is manoeuvrable.

The engine is based on the developments of Mitsubishi and the transmission from Pajero guarantees absence of defects.

The power of engine is weak. It is not dynamic at the speed of 60-70 km/h, although it has a 110-hp petrol engine or an 85-hp turbo diesel. It consumes more petrol in a city.

The suspension is also weak. Bad driving on bad roads can lead to some problems (replacement of shock absorbers, ball joints and others) after 40-60 thousand km. But the spare parts are not expensive.

Moreover, the rear air conditioner can stop working as a result of irregular use. Or electrical contact can be lost. This feature is associated with our Russian climate.

In general, the Hyundai H1 Starex is an excellent budget minivan.
