Hyundai Australia reports enhanced availability of its STARIA LOAD model, with an increased inventory now accessible across the country.

This development occurs while Toyota's HiAce faces ongoing delays. Current figures show 944 STARIA LOAD units in dealership inventories, 210 in compounds, and 689 in transit.

For the current quarter, Hyundai has set the driveaway price of the STARIA LOAD at $49,490.

This price includes regional discounts, such as $1,391.50 in Victoria and $1,279.08 in New South Wales. Hyundai is also offering a 10% discount on new accessory packages for a limited time.

Comparatively, the STARIA LOAD and Toyota HiAce LWB Auto have similar specifications in some areas but differ in others.

The STARIA LOAD consumes 7.0L per 100km, which is less than the HiAce's 8.0L per 100km. Service intervals for the STARIA LOAD are every 12 months or 15,000km, more extended than the HiAce's every 6 months or 10,000km. Both vehicles provide 130kW of power; however, torque figures differ slightly, with the STARIA LOAD at 430Nm and the HiAce at 450Nm.

Dimensionally, the STARIA LOAD offers a larger cargo volume and higher towing capacity of 2,500kg, compared to the HiAce's 1,500kg.


  • 2024 Hyundai Staria Load: $46,240 (-$5,000)
  • 2024 Toyota HiAce LWB Auto: $50,886 (+$6,126)
