Hyundai Will Show off European Grand Santa Fe SUV in Switzerland

European version is modified specifically for the market

Despite the increasing price of gasoline around the world, many shoppers are still leaning towards larger SUVs. Hyundai is set to unveil a version of its Grand Santa Fe for the European market promising class leading cargo capacity. The SUV has been tweaked to offer different features to suit European customers and will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Grand Santa Fe is 10 mm taller, 5 mm wider, and 225 mm longer than the standard Santa Fe SUV. Cargo capacity for the vehicle was 607-liters and its capable of carrying seven people. Hyundai is restyling the SUV to appeal to European buyers with a new grille, new front bumper, fog lights, and restyled rear quarters.

The only engine option offered will be a 2.2-liter diesel mated to a six-speed automatic. "The addition of Grand Santa Fe to the Hyundai portfolio will help meet the rising demand for E-segment SUV models in Europe. Grand Santa Fe upholds the company’s tradition of offering high levels of quality and standard specification, without the premium price. A powerful-yet-efficient engine, European-tuned chassis and the ability to accommodate people and luggage makes Grand Santa Fe the ideal choice for large families."

Pondering perplexing parking puzzles

Sep 19 2014 2:34pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

In the long lineup of vehicles, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata I’m picking up is perfectly parked in the centre of its space, making door dings unlikely. I notice things like this about parked vehicles. I get in and press the start button and, after a welcome chime, there’s a warning sound and a message flashes in the centre window of the instrument cluster that reads ‘Align steering wheel’. A graphic below the text shows the ...

Hyundai Works With Congress to Launch Fuel Cell Infrastructure

In June of 2014, the United States saw Hyundai offer the first commercial, for-lease hydrogen fuel cell car, the Tucson Fuel Cell (check out our test drive, here). The problem with fuel cell vehicles, though, is that there isn't an infrastructure to support them.

Hyundai Sonata - Drive Notes

Sep 17 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

You may recall my first drive experience with the all-new 2015 Hyundai Sonata. It took place in the heartland of Alabama, along I-65 at Hyundai’s Montgomery Assembly Plant. There I spent time in with all three Sonata models: the 1.6-liter, I-4 Turbo in the Eco model, the 2.4-liter, I-4 volume engine, and the sportier, 2.0-liter, I-4 Turbo. All three made a positive impression during the short routes over the busy afternoon. A ...

Sep 17 2014 3:46am CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis and 2015 Kia K900 are two hot contenders for the Luxury Sedan crown, but do they have the punching power to keep up with the established luxury brands? If you think that the Korean brands are just for inexpensive little runabouts, you’re in for a rude awakening. Both Hyundai and sibling Kia have gone upscale, hoping to keep happy current owners in the fold as earnings and desires rise. And there are also lots of buyers from t ...
