Choong Ho Kim, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor –
Amid tougher business conditions and fiercer competition, Hyundai Motor is continuously striving to provide products and services with solid fundamentals.
The Grandeur is updated with the company’s 2.2-liter R diesel engine used on other large Hyundais like the Santa Fe. It features a VGT and meets Euro VI emission standards. The 2.2L engine delivers 202 PS and 45 kgm of torque.
The Grandeur petrol variant has also been retuned. It retains the 2.4-liter GDI Theta II engine which has been “re-engineered to offer improved everyday drivability in the mid-low RPM range”. The engine outputs 190 PS and 24.6 kgm and the steering system has been improved for better responsiveness and stability.
The Grandeur also gets new front and rear styling with new audio equipment. The exterior receives new dual tone bumpers, new grille and LED taillamps. The cabin gets a remodeled fascia with revised HVAC controls and a new 8-inch navigation screen as standard.
Safety features on the new Grandeur include new Blind Spot Detection, Front Collision Warning System, Lane Departure Warning system, Advanced Smart Parking Assist System and a Smart Trunk.
