Hyundai has unveiled the American version of the seven-seat Santa Fe and is going to present at Geneva the Grand Santa Fe or in simple terms the European version of the seven seater Santa Fe.
The Grand Santa Fe is 10mm taller, 5mm wider and 225mm longer than the Santa Fe and features a 100 mm longer wheelbase. As a result the luggage area will be 607 liters, the highest in its class. Stylistically it has 18 inch and 19 inch wheels, new grille, new front bumper and new fog lamps.
It will be equipped with a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine with 197 hp. Combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission and will emit 192 g / km of CO2.
Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO at Hyundai Motor Europe, commented, “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.”
