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."

Filed under: Aftermarket, Car Buying, Convertible, Performance, Truck, Marketing/Advertising, Chevrolet, Design/Style Even when brand new, the Chevrolet SSR wasn't the most beloved car on the market. Its attempt to mix a pickup, convertible sports car and retro styling caused to be a love-it-or-hate-it design. With most people falling deeply into the latter camp, production only lasted from 2003 to 2006. But let's just say one of the most polarizing vehicl ...

Motor Mouth: Let’s face it, our cars look entirely the same

Aug 29 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Head down, fingers maniacally keyboarding my iPhone. Embroiled, as we baby boomers are seemingly always wont to be, in something we are sure is so earth-shatteringly important that it simply cannot wait. Not paying the slightest attention, as always, to anything around me, I spot a burgundy shape looking vaguely SUV-ish. Thinking it the reddish-hued MKC I was testing, I, without even a furtive glance up, flip the Lincoln’s keyfob and get … absolutely no response. You all know the st ...

2014 Kia Forte Koup SX

Aug 27 2014 11:10am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Coupe, Budget, Performance, Kia, New Car Reviews The Kia Forte and Hyundai Elantra have long followed similar paths, with each available in a four-door sedan, a five-door hatch and (most recently) a two-door coupe bodystyle. The recent death of the Hyundai Elantra Coupe in the US may be threatening to change the narrative on these two affordable compact lines, of course, but the Korean two-doors have a lot in common un ...

Consumer Reports says Ram 1500 tops fuel economy fight [w/video]

Aug 27 2014 9:27am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: MPG, Chrysler, Dodge, Toyota Consumer Reports takes its independent vehicle testing procedures seriously. In an era when we have to question the EPA's official ratings thanks to recent re-evaluations from Ford and Hyundai, an independent voice is important. So, when CR says something is the best, it's worth paying attention to. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has "about the same fuel-economy numbers that we typically see in a midsized SUV." - Jake Fishe ...
