Offenbach – Like in 2022, the Hyundai Staria has won the ‘Best Cars’ award of the German trade journal auto motor und sport. The models took first place in the “van – import” category. A total of 101,550 readers participated in the poll, voting for more than 422 cars across 13 categories. Staria went up against 15 competitors, making the win even more significant.
“Receiving the award immediately after Staria’s sales launch last year was a pleasant surprise. It had turned into an incentive for the entire team to repeat this great success,” said Jürgen Keller, Managing Director of Hyundai Motor Deutschland GmbH. “The fact that Staria was able to outperform these important competitors says a lot about our brand and the quality of our products.
The multi-purpose vehicle’s (MPV) strengths are spaciousness, flexibility, and safety equipment
We are proud to have received this award for the second year in a row. It confirms that our MPV offering remains unparalleled in the German market.”
FUTURISTIC DESIGN WITH EXCLUSIVE EQUIPMENT
With its futuristic and clean design, it stands out just as much as with its exceptionally spacious interior. Whether in its comfort-oriented seven-seater configuration (2+2+3 seats) with multi-functional Premium Relaxation Seats in the second row or in its eleven-seater variant (2+3+3+3 seats), the 5.25-metre Staria is unparalleled when it comes to roominess.
In addition to its attractive design, Staria also impresses with family-friendly features. With the help of the infotainment system, all occupants can communicate over a hands-free system, while a Bose sound system provides an all-around high-quality audio experience.
As with every Hyundai, Staria places significant importance on occupant safety. The luxury coach’s Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) alerts the drivers visually and audibly to remind them to check the rear seats once the engine has been turned off and the driver door is opened.
FLEXIBLE SEATING ROWS, TOP EQUIPMENT
With the eleven-seater available, Hyundai accommodates customers who prioritise seating over luxury. Nevertheless, Hyundai’s multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) customers do not have to opt out of any major extras. For example, both variants are powered by the same, efficient 2.2-litre VGTdiesel engine, producing 177 PS and a maximum torque of 431 Nm. In addition to the eight-speed automatic transmission, infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless charging for cell phones, and USB charging ports in all rows. The Staria Premium seven-seater comes with LED headlights and taillights. The seats are upholstered in Nappa Leather, while the 2nd row relaxion power captain seats can be adjusted to almost full recline for ultimate comfort. Customers will also find a comprehensive range of Hyundai Smart Sense safety systems in their Staria Premium seven-seater, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, Surround and Blindspot View Monitor, and High Beam Assist (HBA).
