Hyundai has added a new Premium variant to its Staria Load range with additional safety,
technology and convenience features.

Just to set the scene, Staria Load is the van version of the Staria people mover which
arrived here in mid-2021, to replace the previous iLoad and iMax.

There was more than a name change when the two vehicles arrived her because they
brought a futuristic new style unlike anything else on the relatively bland van/people mover

Staria Load models come with either two or five seats and with the choice of Liftback or
Twin Swing rear doors. Premium is only available as a two-seat Liftback.

All variants are powered by a 2.2-litre CRDi turbo-diesel engine paired with an eight-speed
automatic transmission and front-wheel drive

All Staria van and people mover variants have a 5-star ANCAP safety rating with the
Premium adding a blind spot view monitor and high beam assist.

In addition to the highest ANCAP rating Staria is the first vehicle in its segment to be
awarded Platinum status in ANCAP’s Commercial Van Safety Comparison analysis for
occupant and pedestrian protection with a score of 90 percent.

Other new features in the Premium include a 10.25-inch supervision instrument cluster
and 10.25-inch navigation multimedia unit, LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels,
automatic climate control, smart key with push button start, and a smart power tailgate.

Premium also gets additional exterior colour choices with Abyss Black, Graphite Gray and
Moonlight Blue joining the existing Creamy White and Shimmering Silver in the standard
Staria Load range.

The extra features come at a price with the Premium costing $5,500 more than the
standard 2-seat Liftback.

Staria Load Liftback 2-seat van: $45,740
Staria Load Twin Swing 2-seat van: $45,740
