The 2025 Hyundai Staria Load van has received identical updates to its people mover sibling, dropping a safety feature but gaining a handful of tech upgrades for no additional cost.

    Hyundai says the updated Staria Load is now in showrooms, running concurrently with an end of financial year (EOFY) drive-away offer detailed here.

    It now goes without an active blind-spot assist system to prevent drivers from moving into an occupied lane, reverting to a more basic warning system.

    All versions of the Staria Load are now fitted with USB-C ports, while the Premium gains rain-sensing wipers and Hyundai’s Bluelink connected services.

    The Hyundai Staria Load lineup continues to open from $46,740 before on-road costs, rising up to $51,740 before on-roads for the range-topping Premium.

    It remains as the second-most popular 2.5-3.5 tonne van in Australia, behind the Toyota HiAce.

    Prices exclude on-road costs.
