Hyundai has added rain sensing wipers and Bluelink connected services to its 2025 Staria van and people mover range.

Bluelink gives owners the ability to geo-fence their car, adds voice recognition, live weather info, remote control of the HVAC system, send-to-car navigation directions and more.

Staria Elite and Highlander people mover trims, along with the Premium van, also benefit from a new key fob.

All Staria Loads now get aluminium badging and extra USB-C charging ports with a $500 price increase across the board. The Hyundai Staria and Staria Load range now spans $49,500 to $67,500 before on-road costs.

Also changed is the blind-spot safety, with the Korean brand introducing a new system with audio and visual warnings for the five-star ANCAP rated people mover.

A front-wheel drive 3.5-litre V6 petrol making 300kW and 331Nm is available on all three people mover trims. There is no update on the Staria hybrid for Australia at this time.

The basic Staria people mover is equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, cloth upholstery and an 8.0-inch touchscreen, while the Staria Elite adds power sliding doors, larger 10.25-inch multimedia touchscreen, push-button start and leather-appointed seats.

The top-spec Highlander gets a larger digital driver's display, heated and ventilated seats, premium cabin trims and a dual-pane sunroof.

Meanwhile, a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel (130kW/430Nm) paired with all-wheel drive is a $3000 option. This is the only engine choice for the Staria Load van.

The Load is offered in two and five-seat configurations, with the Premium van equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels and LED headlights to distinguish it from the base model.

Hyundai's van has a wide range of rivals, which include the Kia Carnival, LDV Mifa, Volkswagen Caravelle, Ford Transit Custom and Toyota Hiace.

“2025 Staria and Staria Load bring enhanced convenience and style while continuing to give customers a range of spacious and comfortable vans and people-movers with class-leading standard safety features,” said Hyundai Australia CEO Ted Lee.
