Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t bother about a stiff ride, although the SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be a good bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide range of options, to help you pick and choose those that are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be most of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the New Hyundai Grandeur. Coming off a redesign just a year ago, the New Hyundai Grandeur is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and lots of options to select from.
As has been the case for a time, you may get the New Hyundai Grandeur with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a better V6, or you can get the miserly New Hyundai Grandeur Hybrid. On the highway, the New Hyundai Grandeur is comfortable and compliant. New Hyundai Grandeur also offers two sporty versions that infuse the New Hyundai Grandeur with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the New Hyundai Grandeur provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you opt for one of the upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to select from along the way.
The New Hyundai Grandeur is as competent while they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content makes it supremely easy to drive. If you’re trying to find something with much more class and space than the usual small sedan, the New Hyundai Grandeur might just be the sedan for you.
The New Hyundai Grandeur is the base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every New Hyundai Grandeur Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features on the upper trim levels may be put into the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL audio system coupled with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the New Hyundai Grandeur stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is simple to fold down to suit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to produce most people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The New Hyundai Grandeur features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so the front seat will not need to be scooted completely forward.
