Sited as the biggest sedan in the Hyundai range, the new Hyundai’s Grandeur provides a lot of comfort, safety and satisfaction. One of the biggest draw cards that the luxurious Grandeur holds is its competitive price. There aren’t many cars that can offer quite as much as the Hyundai Grandeur for the same price. Both the petrol 3.8 V6 and the diesel 2.2CRDi are equally sumptuous.
Styling on the outside is pleasant, boasting some nice little touches like the car’s high waistline, ridged hip, side mirror indicators and chrome stripped door handles. The Hyundai Grandeur is a car that you’d feel happy taking to a special event – such is the car’s charisma.
Inside the Grandeur’s interior are leather upholstered seats, leather door inserts and leather centre arm rests in both the front and rear. A premium JBL sound system is linked to eight speakers. USB connectivity allows you to play MP3 or WMA media files. The Hyundai Grandeur is simply loaded with comfort features. Illuminated vanity mirrors, chrome scuff plates, heated seats, electrically adjusted seats in the front, heated and electrically adjusted door mirrors, and cruise control are a start for giving you a taste, on paper, of what the 2010 Hyundai Grandeur is actually like. But experiencing the car in a test drive will effectively show you just how nice the roomy Grandeur is.
One thing the modern Hyundai car manufacturer has learned to perfect is the art of creating stunning car designs. Hyundai has successfully fashioned the Hyundai Grandeur sedan to look unique and utterly gorgeous to the human eye. The sleek, low -slung roofline, and the sharp looking headlight and grille arrangement capture a look of superiority and stealth. The very suave tail lights and twin exhausts complete the package beautifully. The high lip boot is reminiscent of the BMW seven series.
Available in two guises, the Hyundai Grandeur comes as the Grandeur V6 and the Grandeur Limited. No prizes for what the word Limited might suggest. Obviously, it points to the added bells and whistles found inside the Hyundai Grandeur Limited compared to the V6.
Inside the Hyundai Grandeur V6, there is a real sense of quality in the craftsmanship. Luxurious touches are evident all through the highly appointed interior. The sensual interior boasts premium leather seats that are oh-so-sumptuous and comfortable, while providing wonderful legroom front and rear. There is a dual zone climate control unit that keeps the cabin temperature as balanced as the fine ride that the Grandeur offers. The in dash 6-stack CD player system that has eight high out-put speakers is simply orchestral. And the cruise control adds to the overall relaxed yet swift progress of any high speed motorway work. Getting comfy is not hard, especially in the front seats. The driver seat is a ten way adjustable seat so the driving position is second to none. Let’s just add the word Limited in for fun?ahh yes: the impressive list just keeps on growing. Let’s have a power driven rear sunshade; heated external door mirrors; an integrated memory system that controls the seats, mirrors and steering wheel, and heated driver and front passenger seats to name a few more bells and whistles that are available in the Limited Grandeur variant.
Ignite the engine and the adjectives smooth, refined, and lusty come to mind when listening to the quiet low burbling of the 3.8 litre V6. Power is instant and can be as much as 194 kW at a silky smooth 6000 rpm, and overtaking manoeuvres are a breeze on the way to those ever so important board meetings with 348 Nm of torque at 4500 rpm.
Safety is off the top shelf for both models, with active safety features boasting a full house of ABS, ESP, EBD, and TCS. Seat belt warning lights are triggered when a seatbelt has not appropriately been fastened. Eight airbags are ready to function in the event of a collision, including curtain airbags for the rear passenger seats. This gives an added sense of security in the already impressively solid Hyundai Grandeur.
The ride is nice and balanced between tautness and comfort, and there is loads of grip in cornering or heavy braking.
There is not much else to add to the Hyundai Grandeur’s praises. This is one fine car and the world is well down the track of accepting the Hyundai brand as one of the best luxury car packages available. This one’s great.
