Hyundai has launched details of its upcoming Staria people-mover line-up that will go on sale in some markets starting from the second half of 2021.

It will available in two variants, Staria and Staria Premium, the latter with exclusive finishes for a more luxurious look and feel.

Staria’s front has a wide radiator grille. There are horizontal daytime running lights and a positioning lamp, together running across the width of the vehicle.

Staria Premium features a variant-exclusive tinted brass chrome treatment, applied to the Hyundai emblem, grille, headlamp bezels, front and rear bumpers, wheels, side mirrors and door handles. Large side windows improve overall visibility and create a feeling of openness.

The seven-seat Staria Premium has Relaxation Seats in the second row that recline electronically. Even when the seats are reclined, there is enough room for an adult passenger to sit comfortably in the third row.

The nine-seat Premium model’s individual seats in the second row can swivel 180 degrees to face passengers in the third row.

Staria’s generous legroom can be converted into additional cargo space when all seats are pushed together – made possible by the versatile long sliding seat function.

Powertrain options are a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel with 130kW of power and 431Nm of torque. The petrol 3.5-litre V6 has an impressive 200kW and 331Nm of torque.

Staria will have seven airbags for Australia in and all seats come with three-point seat belts and headrests.

The Staria has Hyundai’s smart infotainment system. This system allows the driver and front passenger to communicate with rear passengers using a speaker function that allows all occupants to clearly hear one another.

Design details and features provided in this global press release and attached images may only be available in certain markets/regions.”
