Hyundai Will Show off European Grand Santa Fe SUV in Switzerland

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."
