2017 Hyundai Grand Santa Fe Specs, Price

The Hyundai Santa Fe was introduced way back in 2001. The
Hyundai offered the mid-size SUV at an affordable price that
made it an instant hit in the market mostly to those who could
not afford models from luxury brands. Now, the automaker is
using the standard Santa Fe popularity to launch a full-size
SUV which is really a stretched out version of the Santa Fe.
The new model is dubbed the “2017 Hyundai Grand Santa Fe”.

2017 Hyundai Grand Santa Fe – Exterior and Interior Redesign

The Grand Santa Fe will be way larger than the regular Santa
Fe. Its structure will use high-strength steel which will make
its frame stronger. The model will be easily recognizable as it
will have the general Santa Fe look we are familiar with. At
the front, the Grand Santa Fe will feature the signature
3-dimensional grille as the standard model. This grille will be
flanked by HID headlights, LED DRLS and revised fog lights. The
rear will also feature LED taillights, a revised bumper, and a
modified tailgate. As of now, information about the Grand Santa
Fe is still scanty. However, we understand that the 2017
Hyundai Grand Santa Fe will feature skid plates, a wider
quarter glass, a rear spoiler, revised roof racks and dual
mufflers. The 2017 Hyundai Grand Santa Fe will ride on a set of
18-inch alloy wheels. However, 19-inch wheels will be available
on higher trim models.

Interior:

The inside of the Grand Santa Fe 2017 will be redesigned to
offer more comfort, convenience, and luxury. The interior will
accommodate up to 7 passengers i.e. 6 passengers when one opts
for 2nd-row captain seats and 7 passengers with regular seats.
The driver’s seat will have memory settings while both the
driver’s seat and the front passenger’s seat will be power
adjustable with lumbar support. There will be a large
infotainment TFT LCD screen mounted on the dashboard. For extra
convenience, the 2017 Hyundai Grand Santa Fe will feature an
automatic climate control system, a smart tailgate as well as a
multi-purpose steering wheel. There will also be an auto
defogger and a wiper de-icer. For audiophiles, the 2017 Hyundai
Grand Santa Fe will feature a premium audio system. A rear
entertainment system with a pair of tablets mounted on the rear
seat headrests will be offered as an option. For safety, the
SUV will feature electronic stability control, ABS, blind spot
monitoring, lane change alert, electronic stability control,
pressure monitoring, a wide view mirror, an emergency fastening
device and a pack of enhanced airbags.
