Available in 7 and 9 seat configurations and in two finishes, the Hyundai Staria takes mobility to the next level thanks to a range of innovative features and ‘premium’ finishes. The Staria is equipped with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel CRDi engine, which, together with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, develops an output of 177 hp. Traction can be front in the 9-seat version or 4-wheel drive in the 9-seat model. It has three driving modes to adapt the car’s handling to the driver’s needs: Eco, Normal and Sport.
Hyundai has optimized every mechanical option to achieve minimal noise, vibration and harshness and good acceleration. Likewise, the braking equipment, both calipers and discs, provide a powerful braking force, despite the large size of the vehicle (5.25 meters long). In addition to mechanical improvements, the upper and lower body designs result in a low drag coefficient for better fuel economy.
The original exterior design of the Staria is defined by a single line running from front to rear. The front of the Staria is accentuated by LED daytime running lights and a position light which together increase the width of the vehicle and are complemented by a wide grille. Hyundai uses the same color as the body color for all front end parts to maximize the vehicle’s styling. As standard on all trims, 18-inch wheels feature diamond patterns and graphics, accentuating Staria’s luxurious appearance.
The low beltline and panoramic side windows improve the overall view and create a pleasant opening feeling. The Staria makes great use of the interior space thanks to a long wheelbase of 3.27 meters, an overall length of 5.25 meters and a width of 1,997 mm. The overall height of 1.99 m has been optimized so that passengers can get in and out of the vehicle comfortably.
Inside the Staria there is plenty of space, with an eminently practical design. The vehicle’s low waistline and large panoramic windows create a spacious environment for all passengers. The glovebox for the front passenger seat has been moved forward to provide more legroom. The driving position has a futuristic look, with instruments that include a 10.25-inch screen, a touch center console and an electronic shifting system with buttons. The digital instruments are located at the top of the dashboard, giving the driver an unobstructed view. Depending on the passengers on board, the luggage space can be up to 1,303 litres; with nine seats occupied, it remains at 831 litres.
The large passenger legroom offered by the Staria is one of the best in its segment and can be converted into extra luggage space when all the seats are pushed together, made possible by its longitudinal sliding function. On the other hand, the completely flat shape of the rear seats makes this vehicle particularly suitable for those activities that require a lot of space and interior flexibility, such as camping and sports that require a lot of equipment.
The new Hyundai Staria is equipped with six airbags, in addition to other safety features such as the Hyundai Smart Sense protection system which includes, for example, Forward Collision Assist with Crossroads Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Corner Protection. . All of these are complemented by a browser-based Intelligent Cruise Control to anticipate upcoming bends or straights and adjust vehicle speed for a safer ride.
The HDA Road Driving Assistant controls the speed of the vehicle and maintains the distance to vehicles in front and the position within the lane on the road. Smart Speed Limit Controller warns drivers with visual and audible warnings when they are speeding and exceeding the speed limit; In addition to displaying the speed and warning the driver, the system can even adjust the speed autonomously. Finally, Safe Exit Warning Assist warns occupants if it detects oncoming traffic trying to get out of the vehicle, while Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance applies the brakes if there is a risk of a rear-end collision when exiting.
The Staria minibus offers advanced connectivity technology that enhances its high-quality character. The 10.25-inch full-touch screen includes connectivity via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, connectivity to Bluelink connected car systems and integration with multi-connection Bluetooth and a wireless smartphone charger.
