2009 Hyundai Grandeur

In something of a ‘show and tell’ exercise Hyundai has shown off its revised 2009 Grandeur, including an all-new diesel powered model, which is expected to go on sale in Australia in about four to six weeks. Delays in shipping meant the assembled media were not able to drive the new cars but only look and touch two of the latest cars; media testing of the cars will have to wait until the full shipment arrives.

Hyundai has hopes that adding the diesel engine to the Grandeur will revitalise the car, which has been an extremely slow seller for the Korean company, with just 297 finding homes in Australia last year.

2009 Hyundai Grandeur-12009 Hyundai Grandeur-2The diesel Grandeur gets Hyundai’s 2.2-litre Common Rail Direct injection (CRDi) with 5-speed Selectronic automatic transmission. This engine pushes out a generous 343Nm of torque between 1800rpm and 2500rpm, while power is 114kW at 4000rpm.The engine is suitable frugal using just 7.9L/100km.

For those who want to stay with petrol the 3.8-litre V6 with 5-speed Selectronic automatic puts out 194kW of power at 6000 rpm and 348Nm of peak torque at 4500 rpm. And it offers respectable 10.8L/100km fuel consumption.

Doing away with a previously offered cloth trim option means the Hyundai Grandeur now comes with leather only trim, making the decision rather easy, petrol or diesel.
The V6 petrol is priced at $39,990 and the CRDi diesel variant comes in at $41,990.
