Since the Hyundai Staria launched in South Africa in November 2021, it has sold no fewer than 894 units.

The end of April marked six months since the Staria became available locally, and rarely have we seen a vehicle in the MPV category gain notoriety this quick.

Following only the Toyota Hiace, the new Hyundai has been one of the most popular MPVs in the country with its sales averaging 149 units per month since its debut.

For the past six months, the Staria’s sales have tracked as follows, according to Naamsa’s monthly new vehicle sales reports:

  • November 2021 – 155 units
  • December 2021 – 149 units
  • January 2022 – 147 units
  • February 2022 – 183 units
  • March 2022 – 149 units
  • April 2022 – 111 units

In comparison, the well-known VW Kombi sold 356 units during this same period.

Hyundai Staria specifications

The Hyundai Staria is not very cheap, with the commercial “Multicab” model priced at R764,900 and the passenger-focused variants from R794,900.

However, the MPV offers ample configurations in the form of multiple cabin layouts – a five-seater, nine-seater, and 11-seater – which makes it a practical option for families and businesses alike.

Additionally, the entire line-up is powered by a 2.2-litre, turbo-diesel engine that develops an SUV-rivaling 130kW and 430Nm, driving the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

This achieves decent combined fuel consumption of 8.7l/100km, a fast-for-an-MPV 0-100km/h time of 12.4 seconds, and a top speed of 185km/h – ensuring the kids get to school quick, the businessmen get to the airport quick, or the packages get to their customers quick.

The Staria also supports a maximum braked towing capacity of 2,500kg, allowing it to tow rather sizeable trailers.

Inside, the passenger-aligned models offer high-end features as standard including automatic headlights with daytime running lights, automatic airconditioning with rear vents, artificial leather seats, a multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, blind-spot collision warning, parking sensors, a rear-view monitor, and a wireless charger.

Moreover, the range comes with a 4.2-inch driver’s display and 8.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, multiple Bluetooth-connection support, and rear-seat quiet mode.

In the commercial Multicab, owners can expect the majority of the above features, along with five seats and a rear loading bay that carries up to 2,890-litres or 1,074kg of cargo.
