With a lot of space, diesel and all-wheel drive, Hyundai attacks the van competition
The Hyundai Staria wants to become a serious competitor for the Mercedes V-Class and VW T7. The test shows: its strength is comfort.
When it comes to drive, Hyundai relies on a diesel
Hyundai Staria (2021): New Presentation – Test – Bus – Van – Info
This is how the Hyundai V-Class drives
What is missing is a starry night – and the 1200 Euro one Panoramic roof (Apart from the paintwork, which is subject to a surcharge, the only selectable extra of the Signature Edition). The whole thing was developed by Hyundai, even if the Staria looks like a NASA Mars rover – big praise for that bold design. On the other hand, the drive that the company’s diesel engine supports has a very earthly effect 177 hp concerned. 430 Newton meters are enough 2.4 tons empty weight somewhat off. Given the heavy weight, they are round 700 kilometers range not a bad thing on this planet though. The same applies to the good interaction between the engine and the automatic.
The Staria is full of clever details
Well done: The ergonomics of the Staria are convincing, the interior has many practical storage compartments.

Roll comfort and Noise insulation did not fall by the wayside either. Hyundai has it for a long time, cars to vote cleanly. And even if the front side windows cannot be completely lowered, we hang ourselves a little out of the window and claim: In front V-class and T7 the Staria doesn’t need to hide while driving. In matters ergonomics not really either. Only the central display should be a tad towards the driver. Smart: the foldable shelves in front Speedometer display and behind the navigation screen. There is also a huge drawer compartment between the front seats. And the expedition through the interior promotes many other compartments, cupholders and USB ports revealed.
