The roomy and distinctively designed interior of Hyundai’s startlingly futuristic STARIA multipurpose vehicle (MPV) is opening up new opportunities and comfort levels for families and enterprises in the Sultanate of Oman.

The new model’s exterior gives off the sleek silhouette of a spacecraft. Interior space optimization features that are unequaled in the MPV sector enable second-row passengers to swivel their seats and sit face-to-face with loved ones, friends, or coworkers in the third row.

Additionally, STARIA’s adaptable storage and unloading options in the products carrier variant make it the perfect business partner for contractors offering delivery and other services.

The STARIA is characterized by its distinctly futuristic exterior, which makes it look very different from anything else on the road. A positioning lamp and horizontal daytime running lights (DRLs) that span the width of the car are added as decorations to the front. A pair of low-set headlamps further emphasizes its attractive appearance.

The STARIA has been introduced in Oman with four variants:

  • STARIA 3-seater goods carrier
  • STARIA – 7-seater Luxury
  • STARIA – 9-seater Premium and
  • STARIA 11-seater in Comfort and Premier trims

With tinted brass chrome treatment given to the Hyundai symbol, grille, headlight bezels, front and rear bumpers, wheels, side mirrors, and door handles to enhance the vehicle’s premium and contemporary appearance, the STARIA 7-Seater Luxury is at the top of the lineup. The increased visibility provided by panoramic side windows gives passengers the impression that the outside environment has been integrated into the car’s interior. A wide rear window and long, vertical tail lamps add to the vehicle’s striking appearance.

The STARIA is in a class of its own because of its creative design architecture and interior that take cues from cruise ships. The STARIA Premium has additional functions that should improve the traveler’s mobility. Individual seats in the second row of the 9-seat Premium variant may turn 180 degrees to face third-row passengers, rapidly transforming the MPV into a mobile office for business professionals. Families can converse face-to-face in opulent settings as well.

A 64-color ambient mood lamp that is complemented by the Bose sound system adds to the luxurious interior ambiance seen in all Premium models. Thanks to the flexible long sliding seat feature, there is plenty of cargo space when all the seats are pushed together. The MPV is a great option because of this characteristic for hobbies that call for a lot of space, such as camping gear, golf equipment, and so forth.

Additionally, the brand has attained the highest level of automobile safety. All seats have three-point seat belts and headrests, and there are options to add up to six airbags. Smart features like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) and Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), ABS, Electronic Stability Control, Hill Assist Control, surround view monitor, and smart cruise control are available on the 9 and 11-seater Comfort and Premier variants, further enhancing safety.

OTE Group is the sole distributor of the STARIA lineup in the Sultanate of Oman. Hyundai shops scattered throughout the Sultanate of Oman have a wide selection of variations and color choices on display.
