All variants of Huyndai’s Staria and Staria Load have recently received a five-star rating from ANCAP Safety.
The eight-seater Hyundai Staria, introduced in New Zealand in August 2021 and Australia in September 2021, has received excellent marks in all areas of assessment.
It scored 85 percent in Adult Occupant Protection, 86 percent in Child Occupant Protection, 65 percent in Vulnerable Road User Protection, and 74 percent in Safety Assist.
It offers a wide range of safety features across all variants including dual fontal, side chest-protecting, side head-protecting, and centre airbags.
It also has autonomous emergency braking (Car to Car and Vulnerable Road User), a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and blind spot monitoring (BSM) are standard on all variants.
“The safety rating for the Hyundai Staria will be well received by families and fleet buyers, with the Staria becoming the third vehicle in the People Mover segment to achieve a 5 star safety rating under ANCAP’s 2020-2022 criteria – the most stringent to date,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.
Meanwhile, the Hyundai Staria-Load, which was introduced in New Zealand in August 2021 and Australia in September 2021, is based on testing of the Hyundai Staria people mover.
“For so many small businesses and tradespeople their vehicle is their workplace. By providing the full suite of available safety specifications in the Staria-Load, Hyundai has shown strong commitment to the safety of Australian and New Zealand road users and we expect this 5 star result will be well-received by fleets and commercial buyers,” Ms. Hoorweg said.
