Hyundai has unveiled the design of its new MPV lineup.
Known as the Staria, the vehicle has its overall look based on an “inside-out” approach.
The new design methodology starts from the interior of the vehicle before expanding to the exterior. This shift reflects Hyundai’s response to recent changes in consumer needs that prioritise the use of interior space.
The exterior of the Staria is futuristic and pure, defined by a fluid curve running from front to back.
Up front, the horizontal daytime running lights and a positioning lamp stretch across the width of the vehicle. A wide radiator grille housing unique patterns give the car a unique facade.
Low-set headlamps positioned on each side of the grille further add to the space-age styling of the vehicle. The Staria’s flanks have lowered belt lines and expansive panoramic windows, improving overall visibility and lending the cabin a sense of openness.
Eye-catching vertical tail lamps as well as a wide rear window define the rear.
Inside, a futuristic look comes courtesy of a 10.25-inch front display screen, a touch-based centre fascia and a button-type electronic shifter. The digital cluster is located on top of the dashboard, providing an unobstructed view for the driver.
Storage space is available on top of the overhead console, bottom of the cluster, and top and bottom of the centre fascia.
The Staria Premium model will offer a variety of additional interior features that will transform the passenger’s mobility experience. The seven-seater high-end variant includes a one-touch relaxation mode on its second-row premium relaxation seats.
Activating this mode will automatically recline the seats to a position that comfortably disperses the passenger’s weight and improves overall body balance.
Meanwhile, the nine-seater Premium variant has second-row seats that also swivel 180 degrees to face passengers in the third row. A 64-colour ambient mood lamp will also be available in all Staria Premium variants.
The Staria is scheduled to make its digital world premiere in first half of 2021.
