Hyundai has provided further details of its new people-mover, the Staria. Saying that it’s designed for both families and businesses.

Hyundai Staria’s has a wide radiator grille to give it what the Korean maker says is a space-age appearance. It uses the same body colour for all frontal parts. It has a low belt lines and large side windows. The rear has vertical tail lights and a wide rear window. It’s not all about style – the rear bumper is low to help make it easier to load and unload.

The Staria is available in multiple variants and seating configurations: from two-seater to eleven-seater. It seems unlikely Australia will get all variants, but who knows?

The driver-focused dash has a high-tech look with a 10.25-inch front display screen operated by a touch-based centre fascia. It has a button-type gear selector.

The centre console has cupholders, USB ports and more storage space for both driver and passengers.

Storage space is plentiful, with areas on top of the overhead console, bottom of the instrument cluster and top and bottom of the centre fascia.

Hyundai Staria Premium is seven-seater with pair of second-row relaxation seats which automatically reclining to a seat posture that disperses the occupants’ weight.

The nine-seater Staria Premium has second-row seats that can swivel 180 degrees to allow easy conversations with those in the third row.

The 64-colour ambient mood lamp which is available in Premium variants has direct and indirect lighting on the cockpit, floor console and door and luggage trims.

“Staria is Hyundai’s first mass-produced vehicle model that is designed with the ‘inside-out’ design approach, said SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Hyundai Design. “Staria will provide a completely new experience and value proposition to customers through its unprecedented design and innovative features.”

Hyundai will debut Staria through a digital world premiere in the first half of 2021. More information about the Staria will be provided soon and we will report on it as soon as it comes to hand.
