The 2021 Hyundai Staria MPV has been teased before its world debut, which was going to take place in the coming weeks. The Hyundai H1/Starex MPV sold in foreign countries will most probably be replaced by this new MPV.
This 2021 Hyundai Staria MPV comes with a wide, rounded-front cabin with a windshield, a light bar running from edge to edge, and a broad grille, with two rectangular headlamps located vertically at each edge. Depending on the variant, the grille and headlights are given chrome bits and LEDs respectively.
On the sides, the corner shape is distinctive and the cabin is tapering to the front and the rear box to allow a spacious headroom.
According to Hyundai, the entire architecture of the forthcoming Staria MPV is a spaceship. At the back is a slab-sided tailgate-style with two vertically positioned pixel-like tail lamps.
Hyundai has also launched a series of Staria MPV indoor teasers that display a multilayered, dual-toned dashboard. It comes with a centrally mounted monitor and environmental lighting and automatic variant change functions should be done by keys, much like those seen in the new Hyundai Santa Fe SUV, sold abroad. The second row of the Staria will feature individual captain’s chairs and other features which are identical to those seen on the Toyota Vellfire in India. However, with the lower versions, you should assume regular bench seats and multi-row seats.
On the powertrain side, not much is revealed, but depending on the demand, a range of oil and diesel engine alternatives are to be required for the MPV. The Staria engine and gearbox choices would probably be identical to those on the worldwide Tucson and Santa Fe.
Starex has a long-range with basic multi-seat options, premium trimmings with smaller seats, and more facilities. Although the 2021 Hyundai Staria MPV is not news to our shores, the Toyota Hiace, its arch-rival, has only sold in small numbers in India. Hyundai has also prepared an all-new MPV, based on the newest generation Kia Carnival, in addition to the Staria.
The next new Hyundai product launch will be a 7-seat brand Alcazar SUV focused on Crete. Furthermore, the latest AX1 micro SUV is scheduled to be introduced to the Indian market later this year.
