Hyundai's all-new luxury 7-seater MPV, the 2021 Hyundai StariaPremium, which will debut in Malaysia soon, is positioned as Hyundai’s most luxurious Hyundai MPV targeting professionals and active urban families.
Hyundai’s Smart Mobility Solution via the new vehicle as its response to shifting consumer needs by offering them purposeful, innovative features and redefining in-car travel experiences in line with the company’s vision of ‘Progress for Humanity’.
Featuring Hyundai’s new design language that is futuristic and iconic, the Staria Premium evokes the streamlined form of a spaceship.
The Staria's front is embellished with horizontal daytime running lights (DRLs) and a positioning lamp on its front, both running across the width of the vehicle. This is complemented by a bold, wide radiator grille with a unique pattern. Its clean silhouette is further accented by a pair of low-set headlamps.
It also embodies Hyundai’s ‘inside-out’ design methodology that emphasises interior spaciousness and usability. Its interior takes after the design of a cruise ship.
Like a cruise ship, the vehicle’s lower beltlines and panoramic windows create a spacious and stimulating environment for all passengers.
The driver and passenger seats in the first row are designed to offer a feeling of space and comfort. The simple interior layout focuses only on the essentials to provide more room and flexibility, such as the glove compartment in the first row passenger seat which has been moved forward to provide extra legroom space.
The cargo space availability varies depending on how the seating configurations are arranged. The two- and three-seater, optimised for business use, offers maximum cargo space of almost 5,000 litres.
The 7-seater MPV Staria Premium will be driven by a 2.2-litre CRDi engine. The newly improved diesel engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, delivering an estimated power output of 177 PS and 431 Nm of torque.
Its high-efficiency, air-cooled turbocharger has an improved compressor and turbine wheel performance for better low speed torque.
The Staria Premium is now open for booking at all Hyundai authorised showrooms. Interested parties can also book online via Hyundai’s new online shopping platform, Cl!ck to Buy (www.hyundai.com.my/clicktobuy/).
