The newly introduced Hyundai Grand Santa Fe might as well be the most attractive crossover yet given the enormous progress the South Korean automaker has infused in terms of design, build quality and engineering.
Emerging from a total makeover, the new Grand Santa Fe according to Hyundai Motor Company replaces its predecessor – Vera Cruz, but essentially remains the same Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), except that it fulfils the criteria for a typical 6-seater SUV commonly referred to as ‘Captain’s Chair.’
The Grand Santa Fe is 225mm longer than the regular Santa Fe, incorporating an extended 100mm wheelbase with higher and wider dimensions, which incidentally gives the Grand Santa Fe a deserving place in the entire large crossover/SUV market.
Powered by a 3.3-litre V6 engine which produces 270 hp and 318 Nm of torque, the Grand Santa Fe has one of the smoothest engines on the market with a six-speed automatic transmission.
As for safety, the Grand Santa Fe offers Electronic Stability Control (ESC), driver/passenger side and curtain airbags for maximum defense against injury. Depowered driver and passenger airbags minimize injuries from frontal impact while side curtain airbags ensure that your passengers are protected from side impact.
