Hyundai launches new LPG Staria Kinder minivan in South Korea

South Korean manufacturer Hyundai has launched a school bus based on the new 2022 Hyundai Staria multi-purpose vehicle. The Staria Kinder is an 11-seat minivan (also available in 15-seat form) that features vibrant school bus yellow paint.

In line with the South Korean government’s environmentally-friendly policy, the Staria Kinder is powered by Autogas. In its home market drivers can receive a seven million Korean won subsidy on LPG-powered school vehicles. If a diesel bus is traded in on a new Staria Kinder, purchasers can receive up to 13 million won in discounts.

The new vehicle incorporates additional light bars on the roof, and the requisite stop sign that flips out when the doors open. The four-row interior incorporates black-and-yellow troop-carrier seats. Being a school bus, safety is also paramount. Hyundai points out that the Staria Kinder is fitted with a ‘seat belt adjustment device’ on all pews in the 11-seat version so that children can fit the seat belt correctly to their height.

In addition, the Staria’s active safety technologies – including autonomous emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and rear cross-traffic collision avoidance system – are applied in force. For more information, please visit this link.
