The Hyundai Staria-Load was introduced in New Zealand in August 2021 and Australia in September 2021. The ANCAP safety rating for the Staria-Load van is based on testing of the Hyundai Staria people mover. ANCAP was provided with technical information to show that the test results of the people mover are also applicable to Staria-Load variants with automatic transmission. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all automatic transmission variants, the manual transmission variant is unrated.
Dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (curtain) airbags are standard. A centre airbag which provides added protection to front seat occupants in side impact crashes is also standard on all variants. Installation of child restraints in the second row is not recommended as there is no top tether anchorages available.
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.
A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).
NOTE: The Staria-Load is a cargo-carrying van and is not suitable for transporting young children as it does not have top tether anchorages for child restraints. Child Occupant Protection (COP) has not been assessed.
