2013 Hyundai Grand Santa Fe Heading to Geneva
Introduced at last year's New York Auto Show, the Grand Santa Fe is crossing the Pond with "class-leading cargo capacity" and with slightly different features meant to suit European customer demands.
The Grand Santa Fe is 10 mm taller, 5 mm wider and 225 mm longer than the regular Santa Fe, and offers 607-liter cargo capacity and seating for up to seven people, topping the mid-size SUV class. The new grille, front bumper, fog lights and restyled rear quarter were especially designed for the European market.
Don't expect any extra engine options, as the Grand Santa Fe will only be available with a 2.2-liter diesel powerplant producing 197 HP and a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
"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."
