Hyundai Stargazer X Debuts at GIIAS 2023

The all-new Hyundai Stargazer X has made its debut at the ongoing 2023 GIIAS (Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show). With its SUV-inspired styling, the Stargazer X will compete against the likes of the Suzuki XL7, Mitsubishi Xpander Cross, Honda BR-V, and Toyota Veloz. Keep in mind the regular Stargazer is already available in Indonesia where 7-seat people movers have quite a high demand.

Compared to the regular model, the Stargazer X features larger grille slots in its front fascia, complete with a reworked extruded bumper with silver embellishments for a more rugged look. It also receives some aesthetic enhancements like front and rear wheel arches finished in black, roof rails, a tailgate spoiler as well as a new rear bumper with silver accents on its under garnish. Rounding up the exterior look is a set of 18-inch dual-tone alloys wrapped in low-profile tires.

Inside, the Stargazer X maintains the traditional Stargazer MPV design configuration, but it now has a revised dashboard with black accents on the infotainment system and housing for the digital gauge cluster. Digital controls for the A/C system and an electronic parking brake with auto brake hold are now included in the updated dashboard design.

The Stargazer X has many cupholders and storage compartments throughout the MPV, wireless charging, wireless Android Auto, and wireless Apple CarPlay, just like the regular Stargazer. However, it now also includes a built-in Emergency SOS button and a premium Bose sound system. Though it continues to offer captain’s seats for the second row, effectively creating a 2+2+3 seating arrangement.
