Hyundai unveils a grander Grandeur luxury sedan in Geneva, with a 141kW V6 and ESP

15 Mar 2005

MARCHED out of showrooms in 2003 after Australian consumers didn’t take to the car, Hyundai’s Grandeur will be making a comeback late in 2005 – and this is what it has turned into.

In unveiling the all-new Grandeur in Geneva this week, the Korean manufacturer resorted to the usual claims of elegant European design and high levels of build quality and refinement, most of which still remains to be seen.

Resting on a 30mm longer wheelbase and 17-inch wheels, the new Grandeur is claimed to have been the focus of intensive development input.

It now uses a double wishbone front suspension with a redesigned multi-link rear configuration, with stability control fitted standard.

1 center image Engine performance is also improved via a 3.3-litre DOHC V6 developing 141kW at 6000rpm and 304Nm at 3500rpm, and mated to a five-speed automatic gearbox.

A 107kW 2.2-litre diesel will also become available, though is still unconfirmed for Australia.

There is extra room inside as a result of the longer wheelbase, with cabin features now extending to anti-whiplash headrests and front and rear curtain airbags.

Critical dimensions include 4895mm in overall length, 1845mm in width and 1490mm in height.
