The ten-seater model of the Staria made its native debut on October 5, becoming a member of the seven-seater Top rate that was once introduced in October 2021.
“With greater than 200 gadgets bought since its release in early October, we’re inspired that the Malaysian public recognises the options of Hyundai Staria 10-seater as a dynamic MPV which provides the most efficient of each worlds, in the case of practicality and function. We predict call for to just proceed to upward push in the rest months and into the brand new 12 months,” stated Jeffrey Gan, MD of retail and distribution at Sime Darby Motors Malaysia.

A folks provider designed for large households and companies, the 10-seat model of the Staria is the actual alternative for the Grand Starex, which has in spite of everything been retired. 3 variants are to be had. The entry-level Lite begins at RM179,888 on-the highway with out insurance coverage, however at the moment, HSDM costs its vehicles in BMW model, because of this that the bottom worth comes with a two-year/50,000 km guaranty. If you wish to have the five-year/300,000 km guaranty plus three-year/50,000 km unfastened provider, upload RM10,000 to the associated fee. That’s RM189,999 for the general public then.
The mid-spec Plus is yours for RM196,888 and the range-topping Max is priced at RM209,888. Opt for the “prolonged” guaranty and repair bundle and it’ll be RM206,888 and RM219,888 respectively.
The Starex is among the biggest passenger cars on our roads, however the Staria dwarfs it. At 5,253 mm lengthy, 1,997 mm large and 1,990 mm tall, the Staria is 103 mm longer, 77 mm wider and 55 mm taller than the Starex, and its 3,273 mm wheelbase is 73 mm longer than the previous van. Each the Top rate and this 10-seater percentage the similar frame.
The Lite and Plus trip on 17-inch alloys (215/65 tyres) whilst Max tyres are sized just like the Top rate – 235/55 – with star-shaped two-tone 18-inch rims. Spot the delicate bodykit? It’s same old on all 3 variants, unique to the 10-seater.
HSDM says that the Staria’s top permits for passengers to comfortably input and go out the automobile and is top sufficient for a median school-aged kid to face upright and transfer within the automobile conveniently. The ten-seater’s seat format is 2-3-2-3 and all 3 rows of rear seats will also be folded flat – when that is achieved, you’ll be able to are compatible in a mattress. Through the best way, this isn’t imaginable within the 7-seater, as the person Top rate Rest chairs can’t be folded.
Face apart, some of the largest design issues that make the Staria stand out is the tremendous low beltline, which supplies the MPV one of the largest window panels I’ve ever noticed on a passenger automobile. Hyundai says that that is impressed by way of conventional Korean hanok structure and “creates a sense of openness”. That’s an underestimation – this may smartly be the most efficient automobile to be sightseeing in.
The LED headlamps are matched by way of the original tetris-style pixel back lights on all variants apart from for the Lite, despite the fact that the Lite’s bulbs are rather well disguised with a pixel-patterned duvet. LED daylight hours operating lighting are same old around the board.
Roof air-con vents for all rows are same old around the fluctuate, whilst Plus and Max variants get energy sliding doorways. The Max provides on a powered tailgate. The seats of the Lite are in material, whilst the Plus will get part-Nappa leather-based seats. It’s black Nappa leather-based for the Max variant, which is the the one one right here to get a powered motive force seat (eight-way adjustment with four-way lumbar).
Up entrance, the driving force appears to be like at a ten.25-inch virtual software cluster (analogue dials with LCD MID for Lite), and the pinnacle unit touchscreen is an 8.0-inch merchandise with wi-fi Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and steerage buttons. The Max provides on a 360-degree parking digicam, two further tweeters (six audio system in general), dual-zone air-con and a wi-fi charger. Talking of charging, this giant van has 8 USB ports, seven of which might be for charging.
The button equipment selector within the Top rate has been swapped for an ordinary shift lever, however all 10-seater variants get an digital parking brake with auto dangle, which is good.
Protection sensible, it’s six airbags around the board, in conjunction with ABS/EBD/ESC/VSM/TCS and hill get started lend a hand. Isofix kid seat anchors are to be had on the second one row (two outer seats). Hyundai Smartsense is reserved for the Max. The lively protection and motive force lend a hand suite comprises Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Help with Rear Go-Visitors Collision-Avoidance Help, Lane Holding Help, Lane Following Help and Sensible Cruise Regulate with Forestall and Pass.
Just like the Top rate, the engine here’s a 2.2 litre turbodiesel with 177 PS and 431 Nm of torque from 1,500 to two,500 rpm. The CRDi is mated to an eight-speed torque converter automated transmission. Power is shipped to the entrance wheels, now not the rear like within the Starex. With rear multi-link suspension as a substitute of the Starex’s are living axle, Hyundai guarantees a extra comfy trip with its newest giant MPV.
As for colors, Abyss Black Pearl and Creamy White are choices for all 3 variants, with the Lite including on a Shimmering Silver metal choice and the Max getting further Graphite Gray metal and Moonlight Blue Pearl alternatives (the latter is proven right here). HSDM has an choice checklist that incorporates aspect steps (same old or digital), rear roof-mounted infotainment and Alcantara inner trim.
The large hole in worth between this 10-seater and the seven-seat Top rate is on account of Malaysia’s automobile tax construction, which supplies a business automobile loophole of types to four-row MPVs.
