CLOSE UP+DRIVEN: Hyundai Grand Starex Royale 2.5 CRDI VGT

 In this blog entry, I'm doing a CLOSE UP of Hyundai GRAND STAREX ROYALE PREMIUM 2.5 CRDI Turbodiesel.  I'm glad to add that I've also TEST DRIVEN the HUGE XXXL MPV.  In fact, drove it AT LEAST 3 occasions hence Accurate review.              
                                                       
   YOU ARE LOOKING AT Brand NEW CBU from Korea 11 seater LARGE MPV. Beats Recond Alphard OR Vellfire anytime in Fuel consumption, SIZE and Price. I'm talking about almost 1/2 price. The LARGE MPV Name is Hyundai Grand Starex 2.5 Diesel VGT Auto.
