2022 Hyundai STARIA FULL Revew - INTERIOR _ 7 seater, 9 seater & 11 seater | Cars Blog

Starting price is about $48,500

Hyundai has taken on a lot of bold challenges in recent years - launching a range of performance cars, expanding into electric vehicles and introducing a whole new design language - but its latest move could is the most difficult.

Hyundai is trying to make people interesting.

While some countries around the world have embraced the utilitarian nature of human mobility, Australians are still interested in our preference for seven-seat SUVs. Space style is a local creed, with many SUVs being used as larger family transport rather than passenger vans – or as some moms call them trucks.

That's despite the obvious benefits of an engine for people based on vans, like the recently replaced Hyundai iMax. It has space for eight people and their luggage, more than many SUVs can boast, plus getting in and out of the minibus is easier than any SUV you can buy today.

But drivers have a history of driving more like a delivery truck, which puts it at a disadvantage compared to SUVs. Kia has been trying to push its Carnival closer and closer to an SUV, and now, Hyundai is following suit - albeit with a unique twist.

The all-new Staria replaces the IMAX/ILOAD, and instead of being a Mover based on a commercial vehicle it's the opposite - the Staria-Load will be based on the people mover platform (borrowed from Santa Claus) Fe ) .

What's more, it has a new look that Hyundai claims is "not only great for a commuter, it's a great complete stop". It's a big call, so let's see how the new Staria forms.

The futuristic Staria looks like a Robocop helmet from the front; Take the wheel off and you can almost imagine it taking a crew of Starfleet to the rendezvous with the USS Enterprise.

The beautifully curved silhouette and deep panoramic windows create a visually appealing design that differs from the iMax with its van-like proportions. And there is a commercial-van version - with Staria-Load replacing iLoad.

And it is the van that’s spun off the people-mover this time. The Staria has switched to the Carnival’s front-wheel-drive, passenger car platform that’s also shared with the Sorento and Santa Fe SUVs.

It takes a big car to make the Carnival look relatively small, and the Staria does achieve that feat.

At 5253mm nose to tail, it’s about 14cm longer; at 1990mm ground to roof, it’s nearly 22cm taller. (The Staria is still slightly shorter than a long-wheelbase VW Multivan, though.)

As with the third-generation model, the Carnival fuses various body styles – wagon, SUV and MPV. Many would say successfully.

Hyundai is offering a sizeable Staria range with three specification levels with the choice of either a 3.5-litre V6 petrol 2WD or 2.2-litre turbo diesel with AWD across all variants.

The range begins with the entry-level model, known simply as Staria, which starts at $48,500 for the petrol and $51,500 for the diesel (MSRP - all prices exclude on-road costs).

Standard equipment on the base grade includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, keyless entry, multi-angle parking cameras, manual air-conditioning (for all three rows), a 4.2-inch digital instrument panel, a leather-clad steering wheel, cloth seat trim, a six-speaker stereo and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a wireless smartphone charging pad.

Stepping up to the Elite means pricing starts at $56,500 (petrol 2WD) and $59,500 (diesel AWD). It adds keyless entry and push-button start, power-sliding doors and a power tailgate, as well as leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver's seat, DAB digital radio, a surround view camera system with 3D view, tri-zone climate control and a 10.2-inch touchscreen with in-built navigation but wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Finally the Highlander tops the line-up with a starting price of $63,500 (petrol 2WD) and $66,500 (diesel AWD). For that money you get a 10.2-inch digital instrument panel, dual power sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, rear passenger view monitor, cloth headlining and the choice of beige and blue interior colour finish, which costs $295.

On the topic of colour choices, there is only one no-cost option for paint, Abyss Black (you can see it on the base model diesel Staria in these images), while the other options - Graphite Gray, Moonlight Blue, Olivine Gray and Gaia Brown - all cost $695. That's right, there's no white or silver available - those are reserved for the Staria-Load parcel van.
