The 2009 Hyundai ix55 is not just a re-badged Euro-spec seven-seating Hyundai Veracruz SUV. Trying to meet expectation of picky European customers, Hyundai has retuned the vehicle’s suspension, reequipped its interior, and offered more powerful diesel engine mated to Hyundai’s first six-speed automatic gearbox.
Hyundai has finally revealed some official info on its Santa Fe Hybrid crossover SUV technology study.
Hyundai is expected to unveil its Santa Fe Hybrid concept SUV at the upcoming motor show in Paris.
The aging Hyundai Tiburon coupe will have its official successor presented to the public in September 2009, perhaps, at the next international motor show in Paris.
The 2008 Hyundai Grandeur (aka Hyundai Azera in the United States) is now offered on the European market with a 2.2-liter fuel-efficient diesel engine.
Considering the vehicle’s mass, the choice of engine doesn’t seem really adequate for the driver to feel comfortable during a long overtake on a rural road (unless they reprogrammed the automatic transmission that the powerplant is mated to), but if you plan to primarily use the car within city limits, it will allow you to save a euro or two on fuel.
