New Hyundai Staria: As A Bold Minivan For The Modern Age

The 2021 Hyundai Staria has been revealed in full and it truly looks unlike any other vehicle on the market.

The people-mover is dubbed a Purpose Built Vehicle (PBV) by Hyundai and has a futuristic exterior design that includes a bold front-end with LED daytime running lights and a light bar that run across the width of the vehicle. Hyundai’s designers have also equipped the Staria with a low and wide grille while the main headlamps are located on either side of this grille.

Unique design touches continue along the sides where the windows extend lower than is usual. Meanwhile, the rear includes large vertical taillights with a Parametric Pixel lamp design similar to the all-electric Ioniq 5. Shoppers will be able to buy the new Staria in Abyss Black Pearl, Creamy White, Graphite Gray Metallic, Moonlight Blue Pearl, Shimmering Silver Metallic, Dynamic Yellow, Olivine Gray Metallic and Gaia Brown Pearl. 

This is a big minivan

The new Staria has a 3,273-mm wheelbase (129-in.) with an overall length of 5,253 mm (206.8-in), width of 1,997 mm (78.6-in) and a height of 1,990 mm (78.3-in). Hyundai says that cargo space varies depending on how the seating configurations are arranged. The 2- and 3-seater, optimized for business use, offer maximum cargo space of almost 5,000 liters (176 cubic feet). The cargo space dimensions have also been increased to carry three Euro pallets at once.

Hyundai will sell its new PBC in standard Staria and flagship Staria Premium guise and offer 2- to 11-seat configurations. The Staria Premium includes unique features like a tinted brass chrome treatment across various parts of the exterior, including the Hyundai emblem, grille, headlamp bezels, front and rear bumpers, wheels, wing mirrors, and door handles.

The interior of the Staria is a significant step on from previous people movers produced by Hyundai. Key features include a 10.25-inch front display, a button-type electronic shift lever, and a large touchscreen infotainment system.

Staria Premium models takes things one step further. In the 7-seat Premium model, for example, it features ‘Premium Relaxation Seats’ in the second row that recline electronically and have sliding capabilities. These seats also include a one-touch relaxation mode that prompts them to recline automatically. Meanwhile, 9-seat Premium models have second-row seats that can swivel 180 degrees to face passengers in the third row.

All Premium models also come with 64-color ambient lighting and the cabin can be finished in Black, Black and Beige two-tone, or Black and Blue two-tone. Premium models can also be equipped with a Gray and Brown two-tone cabin and a Gray and Light Gray two-tone interior.

New variants coming in the near future

The Korean carmaker said that it will expand the Staria lineup with additional variants over the next couple of years, including limousines, ambulances and a camping model. In addition, eco-friendly variants of STARIA are scheduled to be added in upcoming years.

What powers the new Staria

Two engines will be offered. The first is a diesel 2.2-liter VGT four-cylinder that delivers 174 hp and 318 lb-ft (431 Nm) of torque. This engine can be coupled to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Sitting at the top of the range is a Smartstream 3.5-liter MPI engine with 268 hp and 244 lb-ft (331 Nm) of torque. This engine is offered exclusively with an eight-speed automatic.
