The Hyundai Stellar (Hangul: í˜„ëŒ€ ìŠ¤í…”ë¼) was a midsize car, the Hyundai Motor Company produced. The Stellar was released in July 1983 as a successor to the Ford Cortina, the Hyundai had previously assembled and marketed for Ford in South Korea. The Stellar was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, but the platform of the Ford Cortina was used.
Engine and transmission were manufactured under License from Mitsubishi. Four-cylinder in-line engine (4G33) and 1.6 liter – four – cylinder inline engine (4G32) – By 1986 the 1.4 liter was the same as the Hyundai Pony, together with the manual 5-speed transmission KM119 or 3-speed Borg Warner automatic 03-55L used – and a 2.0 liter -. motor in 1987, the trim levels were "L" (basic equipment), "GL/CL ‘and’ GSL/CXL". The GSL/CXL had electrical Windows, power central locking, power mirrors, an openable from the inside trunk lid and fuel filler flap, a first-class stereo, full instrumentation (speedometer, trip odometer, fuel gauge, water temperature gauge, vehicle power supply voltage indicator and oil pressure gauge) and on request air conditioning. This was a long list of features for the type and year of the car.
In the fall of 1987, the Stellar II was (or Stellar 2.0 in Canada) revised: The changes included a 2-way catalytic converter, a new instrumentation, the larger Mitsubishi engine with 2.0 liter displacement and exhaust gas recirculation, a more powerful gear, larger headlights and revised taillights. The front wheel suspension with double wishbones were replaced by MacPherson struts, the car got bigger brakes and two-piece Drive shafts. On request, the car with different alloy wheels and (in Canada) was equipped with all-weather tires the tire manufacturer Michelin. There was also this year to request an automatic transmission with overdrive. The Stellar was not introduced in the U.S. (and even after Germany, translator’s note) because he could not meet the local emission standards, but in Canada and other countries.
