In need of a new vehicle to transport more than several passengers at once? Hyundai has just the ride, and it will be showcased at the paultan.org Auto Car Expo (ACE) that takes place over the weekend of November 5 and 6, 2022.
The latest people-mover from the Korean brand is the Staria 10-seater, and this is available in three variants – Lite, Plus and Max. Given the passenger count that can be accommodated in this version of the Staria, the 10-seater can be pressed into duty for a variety of applications; this may include transport for larger families or corporate outfits, tour groups and travel agencies, upscale private hire transport and more.
Key features for the Staria include the smart powered sliding doors and tailgate, eight USB ports, of which seven can be used for charging devices, as well as seats which fold flat and slide to suit the space and configuration required.
Smartphone connectivity is convenient with wireless connection for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the Hyundai Smartsense active safety suite brings Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist and Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go.
Motive power for the Staria 10-seater comes from the manufacturers’ 2.2 litre turbodiesel engine which produces 177 PS and 431 Nm of torque, driving the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Here, the Staria employs multi-link suspension layout at the rear, which promises a more comfortable ride than from its predecessor the Starex.
Pricing for the Staria 10-seater starts at RM179,888, and if this looks like just the ride to serve your needs, be in quick – stocks are limited and this model is selling, fast. Happily, there are a host of great deals not just from the participating brands, but also from us at paultan.org.
Co-sponsored by Petron, Yinson GreenTech and myTukar, ACE 2022 event promises amazing deals on a wide variety of vehicles.
