Hyundai is testing a new passenger bus

September 24, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The H300 is Hyundai’s spacious and practical passenger van, which is also available in cargo versions. The current model has been on the market since 2007 but is finally gearing up for a generation change.

Hyundai launched its first Starex series in 1999. In Europe, the model was known as the Hyundai H200. In 2007, the second generation of the model was introduced, the H300, which is still available from authorized dealers. The H300, known in other markets as the (Grand) Starex, Starex Royale, H1, iMax and i800, has undergone several upgrades over the years.

Launched in 2018, a side-by-point session unexpectedly gave the bus a more modern look. However, this update could no longer hide the fact that the practical Korean product has been on the market for 13 years and is too outdated. A series of spy shots show that Hyundai finally has a head-to-toe successor.

The passenger bus is still heavily disguised, but some interesting details are already visible. The successor to the H300, for example, has a more sloped front end fitted with a grille that extends nearly the entire width of the front fascia. The headlights are already visible near the grille, which suggests that the next H300, like the Sante Fe and the new Tucson, will receive two-level lighting.

The large dimensions of the bus are also striking. In the front doors, Hyundai uses windows that go deeper into the body than in the current H300. The rest of the bus is designed with a well-known recipe, which means the H300 / Starex will soon be a practical bus again, equipped with sliding doors that should provide plenty of cargo space.

It is difficult to say anything definite about the interior of the new generation Hyundai H300. According to autoweek.nl, only the fact that the bus will have a dashboard with a large vertically oriented display on the center console seems indisputable.
