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."

Pros and Cars: The baker and her Honda CR-V

Nov 4 2014 8:12am CST | Source: Driving Canada

Welcome to Pros and Cars, a video series that explores how people’s cars help them do their jobs. In this episode, we meet Laurie Waldman, owner of Petal Dust Bake Shop in Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto, Ont.

Nov 3 2014 11:36am CST | Source: Cars.com

An all-new Ford Mustang is a rare thing indeed and that's why it's no surprise the redesigned pony car was the fastest-selling car in the country last month. New looks and a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine have made it a much-talked about commodity to be sure. But hold the phone.

Nov 3 2014 10:44am CST | Source: Car and Driver

“Reliable power, guaranteed,” says Bisimoto, a tuner based in Ontario, California, east of Los Angeles. And that’s a good thing. Wouldn’t you be slightly concerned about squeezing 708 horsepower out of a rather pedestrian four-cylinder engine? The object of manipulation, in this case, is a Hyundai 2.4-liter Theta II engine, fitted in a Sonata four-door sedan. A Turbonetics TNX 82/64 turbocharger complete with a Turbonetics wategate and blow-off valve (we can already hear ...
