MPVs seemed to be almost completely extinct, swallowed up by SUVs and crossovers: there is still life beyond “high-wheel” bodies. The reference is the new Hyundai Staria, a proud little car, boasting a turbodiesel. In Italy, the car will be available for preparation with seven or nine seats and a price starting from 43 thousand euros.
Among its trump cards is, surprisingly, the design, with the edge of the future – created by minimalist lines and large glass surfaces – but which does not contradict the reasons of space and comfort. With a length of 5.25 meters and a wheelbase of no less than 3.27 meters, the Staria offers a boot volume from 831 to 1,303 liters in volume. Inside, the dashboard has two 10.25-inch displays, one for the instruments and the other for infotainment and climate control.
Under the bonnet is a 2.2 liter turbodiesel engine, 177 HP of power and 430 Nm of torque which is connected to front wheel drive and a manual gearbox. On request, 8-speed automatic, which is standard on the four-wheel drive version. Standard or premium accessories include LED headlight clusters, 18-inch rims, automatic climate control, a rearview camera and electronic driver aids.
