Here are some new spy images of the 2021 new-gen Hyundai H-1. The all-new MPV has been snapped several times while getting tested.
The upcoming new-gen Hyundai Starex has been spotted again on a road test. Earlier, the all-new MPV has been snapped a lot of times during testing in South Korea under heavy camouflage. The new-gen Hyundai Starex was first spied in March this year. Talking about the Hyundai H-1, the MPV was first introduced back in 2007, but the current-gen H-1 is way too old now. The car received a facelift back in 2018. By next year, it will be replaced by an all-new model. You can see images of the upcoming new-gen Hyundai H-1 embedded below. The next-gen Hyundai MPV will have a more modern silhouette that doesn’t make the car looks like a boring boxy van like the previous model.
Once launched, it'll directly compete with the likes of Kia Carnival
If we look at the front fascia of the car, the side has a curvy look and this makes the MPV look more eye-catching. At the front, the all-new Hyundai H-1 will employ a wide radiator grille, LED headlamps and fog lamps. The ongoing-model features projector headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, powered sliding rear doors, 360-degree camera, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and much more. Moreover, the MPV is retailed in several different versions like a wagon, school bus, ambulance, window van, panel van, camper and commercial van. Mechanically, the current-gen Hyundai Starex is powered by four different engine options. The first one is a 2.4-litre MPi petrol unit that produces 175 PS of peak power.

The second engine option is a 2.5-litre TCi diesel mill, which puts out 100 PS of power output. The MPV is also offered with a 2.5-litre CRDi WGT and 2.5-litre VGT diesel engines. The former belts out 136 PS of power while the latter makes 175 PS of power output. In our market, the all-new Hyundai H-1 will rub shoulders with the likes of Kia Carnival and even the Toyota Innova Crysta. Right now, the carmaker has not revealed any details regarding the India launch of the new-gen Hyundai H-1, but if launched, the Korean automaker will try to locally manufacture the new-gen H-1 to keep its cost low.
