Is Hyundai going to make a Multi-Purpose Vehicle?

Hyundai has been making a lot of strides towards providing different mobility options than what they traditionally offer. Now, they’ve given us a sneak peek at the upcoming Hyundai STARIA, the brand’s new Multi-Purpose Vehicle. Adopting an iconic and futuristic design, the vehicle follows what they’ve dubbed the inside-out approach and will make its official world premiere sometime in the first half of this calendar year, 2021. Until then, we thought we’d give you the rundown on a few of its cool aspects and amenities.

“STARIA is Hyundai’s first mass-produced vehicle model that is designed with the ‘inside-out’ design approach. STARIA will provide a completely new experience and value proposition to customers through its unprecedented design and innovative features.”

– SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President & Head, Global Hyundai Design

Exterior Design

The innovative exterior of the vehicle was designed to resemble a minivan-shaped spaceship. The simplified front fascia features horizontal daytime running lights, a wide radiator grille with intricate and unique patterns that create something to be recognized very easily and headlamps that are placed very low on either side of the grille. The back is equipped with equally unique tail lamps that are vertical, a rather wide rear window and a lowered rear bumper.

Interior Design

Adopting that inside-out design philosophy we mentioned earlier, the interior cabin of the STARIA was definitely a focus on the design process. The cabin feels like the lounge of a spaceship, adorned with luxury amenities and premium technologies that lend to its relaxed atmosphere. Features of the interior include a 10.25” infotainment system, a versatile selection of seating options like one-touch relaxation mode or 180-degree swivel depending on which STARIA configuration you opt for, and so much more.
