This newly adopted power plant generates 202 ps and 45.0 kg/m torque.
Customers will also enjoy enhanced performance, benefitting from the Theta II 2.4-liter GDI petrol engine, which has been re-engineered to offer improved everyday drivability in the mid-row range of rpm. The engine delivers 190 ps and 24.6 kg•m torque. Furthermore, improvements to the motor-driven power steering system result in a greater handling responsiveness and stability.
Grandeur has also been upgraded with redesigned exterior front and rear styling, as well as enhanced audio equipment. The cabin receives a remodeled central fascia with the latest HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) controls, as well as a new 8-inch navigation screen as standard.
The upgraded Grandeur is 10 millimeters longer (length) than the previous model. A high-gloss two-tone rear bumper design provides a wide and elegant appearance, while a stylish new grille and front bumper complement the LED fog lamps to create a cutting-edge front visual aspect.
New safety and convenience features have been added to Grandeur to maximize customers’ satisfaction. While cutting-edge technologies such as Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Front Collision Warning System (FCWS), and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) features secure drivers’ safety, Advanced Smart Parking Assist System (ASPAS) and Smart Trunk offer more convenience.
