Hyundai Motor Company has released teaser photos of the all-new Hyundai Starex, also known as the Staria. Aside from the vehicle’s exterior, the following images also showcase the van’s cabin, and it’s quite evident that Hyundai is continuing its futuristic vision on this upcoming model.
The Staria nameplate was derived from the words ‘star’ and ‘ria’. As per the South Korean automaker, the name goes by the van’s “future-oriented product values and streamlined design characteristics defined by one curve gesture silhouettes as well as clean and pure body volume.”
As mentioned, the van features Hyundai-fashioned futuristic vibes which blend in with some of its stablemates, including the all-new models like the Tucson and the Sonata. Upfront, it gets a unified horizontal strip of Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). The grille appears to be large and is executed with a mesh pattern. Like the Tucson, Santa Fe, and Kona, the main lighting system of the Hyundai Staria is situated at the middle portion of its fascia.
The boxy dimensions of the Staria is well-presented on its side profile. While the rear gets a pair of vertical taillights, which seem to be treated in LEDs for that modern look. And instead of a shark’s fin antenna, the Hyundai Staria gets a stubby-type unit.
Inside, the Hyundai Staria embarks that business class experience through its futuristic and well-laid out cabin. Upfront, both the driver and passenger get individual armrests for added comfort. It even gets some additional ambient lights that uplift the overall feel of the cabin. The dashboard layout is somewhat reminiscent of the Tucson’s, however, there are some contrasting elements including the floating-type infotainment system and the integration of the button-type shifter below the screen.
This Hyundai Staria Premium, which is the range-topping trim of the van’s variant range, features captain chairs for the second row, making it a viable competitor of the Toyota Hiace Super Grandia. Presumably, Hyundai might also have optional bench-type seats for the middle row passengers.
Staria will provide a completely new experience and value proposition for customers through its unprecedented design features.
While we’re still a bit short on info, Hyundai is set to release more details surrounding the Staria in the coming weeks, perhaps, it might include the exact date of its global launch.
