Last updated 5 May 2015

16' Korean limo with 235PS chain cam V6 and 5-speed auto. Drives and handles surprisingly well. Decent 27.5mpg.
Very few in the UK.

Very good looking XG30 replacement, with luxurious interior and good driving position. Power comes from 3.3-litre chain-cam V6, with 233PS. Prices start at £27,100.

Chances are the Grandeur is a car you've never seen or even heard about. It's imported in very limited numbers, to order only and the loan of this one was a rare privilege. I first became aware of it at the UK launch of the Hyundai i30, when Ken Lee, Hyundai Motor UK's President, turned up in one. Nice shape, I thought. Luxurious interior. Popped the bonnet and found a transverse 3.3-litre quad-chain-cam V6 lurking underneath. So, naturally, I expressed an interest. The old Hyundai XG30 was a reasonable enough luxo-barge. But Hyundai has moved on since those days. So how much better could the Grandeur be?
