Most Pinoys are known to be frugal, as we are always on the lookout for something that has value for money. When purchasing anything, we look for ways and means to look for a discount. Such is the case, when buying cars, where we always want to get the best that our money can afford.
For the typical family man or woman, or even for those into business, politics, or the entertainment industry, a van is usually the most practical type of vehicle to get, because of its versatity as people carrier, cargo carrier, or anything and everything in between.
Out of all the vans available in the Philippine market, the Hyundai Starex is arguably one of the best you can get. Not only does it feel very car-like to drive compared to others in its class, as a passenger, it gives you a sense of spaciousness and luxury, and is well-able to give a feeling of isolation from the disturbances of the outside world. And speaking of value for money, it can be had for a song at around Php 1.2M for the base model. And if you really look around through various dealers, you may even be able to get fantastic discounts and freebies with it! Those last two keywords like music to a Pinoy’s ears.
But of course, there are people who have more special requirements – these are the people who will only settle for nothing but the very best. And the best Hyundai Starex you can get your hands on is the Hyundai Starex Limousine. With this top-of-the-line Starex, you get a bubble-top roof for extra headroom and luxury ameneties, such as a wide-screen TV with DVD. You also get a custom theater-like audio system, plush swiveling seats, and of course a deluxe leather interior, with curtains, mood lights, and many more. But at a price of around Php 2.7M, this might not be something you’d consider as value for money. That’s where Atoy Customs comes in.
Little do you know, Hyundai actually employs the services of a third-party luxury coach-builder in Korea to modify stock Starex vans and turn them into these things of beauty. Well lo and behold, these coach-builders are simply the Korean versions of the Philippines’ very own Atoy Customs.
How do you get value for money while still getting your very own Hyundai Starex Limousine? Here’s a simple formula for you:
1. Buy the mid-ranged Automatic Hyundai Starex priced at around Php 1.4M;
2. Bring it to Atoy Customs
3. Cash out Php 650k
4. You get your own customized Hyundai Starex Limousine at a total price of roughly Php 2.05M. You save around Php 650k from the standard Hyundai Starex Limousine!
And despite the Atoy Customs version already being a Limousine, I still mention the word “customized”. Why? Because with Atoy Customs, no longer are you subjected to the limited choices offered by the built Hyundai Starex Limousines from the dealer. Atoy Customs can customize and cater to your choices of material, fabric, finish, and many other specifications suitable to your requirements. It’s your ride, your call. Not only that, the procedure of the limousine modification does not violate the Starex van’s stock suspension, drivetrain, or electicals, and therefore does not get in the way of the dealer warranty. Now is that value for money or what?
Here are some examples of actual Starex Limousine conversions owned by customers of Atoy Customs:
Inside the bubble top. Overhead space for a flat screen TV!
And overhead storage compartments too!
Posh interior don’t you think?
What you see fitted here is the Lazy Boy option.
Oh yeah… Relaxation while on the move.
The next photos are from an actual Starex Limousine from the dealer, where the customer wasn’t exactly satisfied with what it came with. Hence, the owner took it to Atoy Customs to modify it further to suit the owner’s needs:
This is the Sofa Bed option.
Swiveling Captain Seats.
This is the privacy wall option.
Atoy Customs also does limousine conversions for various other vans such as the Ford E150, Toyota HiAce Grandia, and the Foton View.
