Hyundai is launching a new range of van models, starting with the Hyundai Staria. The manufacturer intends to continue to offer modern mobility solutions in the future that can be used by private individuals as well as for business purposes. Hyundai has released new teaser pictures and more information. The Staria will be futuristic and extravagant.
Things get futuristic with the new van models from the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai. The Staria will be the first model and has now been teased.
The name Staria is a combination of “Star”, which refers to the future-oriented technologies of the model, and “Ria”, which in geography means a deeply incisive area, which is created by the flooding of a former river valley. This should indicate the streamlined shape of the transporter.
The so-called “inside-out” concept describes the design of the Staria, which begins in the interior and continues outside. The main focus, however, is on the use of the interior space to focus more on customer needs.
The information about the Hyundai Staria is still very little, Hyundai has only announced that the new transporter series will celebrate its market launch in the second half of 2021. The van will be presented during a digital premiere in the first half of 2021. What price will be called for the Staria is still unclear.
As the new teaser images show, the design is very clear, straightforward, and at the same time a little playful, because there are hardly any corners and edges. The Staria will be very futuristic; the new design concept for intelligent mobility solutions announced by Hyundai will first have to establish itself on the market. The silhouette is streamlined and flows through like a curve from front to back.
Horizontally mounted daytime running lights extend over the front and extend over the entire width of the Staria. The radiator grille has a honeycomb structure that is very easy to recognize. Deep headlights are attached on both sides and stand out when looking at the front – somehow it reminds a bit of a spaceship.
A look at the rear shows that eye-catching, vertical taillights are also used here, as well as a wide rear window that throws a lot of light into the interior. A very low rear apron makes it easier for passengers to get in and out of the van. There are also design elements such as chrome strips, tinted brass on the Hyundai logo, and exclusive aluminum rims, which further reinforce the futuristic design.
Hyundai Staria Interior
The interior is just as futuristic and modern as it is outside. The interior was inspired by Korean architecture called Hanok, which stands for the coexistence of man and nature. In residential buildings or the Staria, the impression should be created that the outside and the inside are connected. Hence the large panoramic windows improve the all-around view and emphasize the feeling of freedom.
The comfortable-looking seats are more reminiscent of living room armchairs with a massage function than of car seats. There is also a pull-out leg rest for the rear passengers, making longer journeys very comfortable and convenient. The headrests also seem to be fully designed for comfort, because they have lateral support.
Overall, the interior seems to be quite clean and tidy, especially the needs of the driving person are given a lot of attention. The fully digital cockpit is equipped with a 10.25-inch display and has a touch function. Instead of a selector lever, you get buttons that work via shift-by-wire.
There is enough storage space in the Staria. Also, there is space for all kinds of small items in the overhead console, under the instrument cluster, and above and below in the center console. More information will follow in the next few weeks.
