Hyundai Grand Santa Fe

Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. has a new model in its product lineup for the Philippine market, and it's the Grand Santa Fe 2.2 6AT 4WD Premium, which is essentially the long-wheelbase version of the Santa Fe midsize SUV. Supposedly the Korean carmaker's replacement for the discontinued Veracruz., the Grand Santa Fe has a seating capacity for six passengers, according to the spec sheet sent to us, which is a little odd since the short-wheelbase Santa Fe can already seat seven--unless the Grand Santa Fe has six captain's chairs, which is most likely the case.

Called the Maxcruz in South Korea, the Grand Santa Fe is powered by the same 2.2-liter eVGT CRDi turbodiesel engine found under the hood of the standard Santa Fe, rated at 194hp and 422Nm. As the official variant name suggests, this vehicle comes equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.

How much longer is the Grand Santa Fe compared to the regular Santa Fe? The spec sheet says it has a wheelbase of 2,800mm, or a mere 100mm more than the Santa Fe's 2,700mm wheelbase. The more pronounced increase can be found in the overall length: The Grand Santa Fe measures 4,915mm from bumper to bumper, while the Santa Fe is at 4,690mm.

Even so, think of the Grand Santa Fe as not just a bigger version of its regular sibling, but also a more luxurious one. Check out the complete list of features below.

The Grand Santa Fe--which comes in five colors (Arabian Mocha, Hyper Metallic, Timeless Black, Mystic Beige and Creamy White--is priced at P2,498,000.
