Amanda Osmer Hyundai 1 Comment

Hyundai has added some new features to the 2014 Hyundai Tucson. Previously on the Tucson you had a choice between cargo rails on the roof or a panoramic sunroof. Now, the 2014 model allows you to have both features. The Tucson allows key less entry so you don’t have to fumble around looking for your keys,  and a push to start button. During cold New England winters the Tucson’s key less entry will come in handy. The 2014 Hyundai Tucson features a GDi engine which stands for Gas Direct Injection. This system helps you to have better fuel economy and get more power. You also have the active eco feature which gives you up to 7% better fuel economy on your daily commute. Hyundai also made sure to add great tech features in the interior of the Tucson. There is a touch screen, heated seats, a navigation system, a back up camera, blue tooth, controls on your steering wheel. Hyundai also gives you 3 years of Blue Link which was not featured in the 2013 model. Blue Link is used for road side assistance, SOS emergency and vehicle diagnostics.

Amanda Osmer Fun Facts 1 Comment

The question of the week has been: What car would you want to have during the Zombie Apocalypse and why? Each person has different priorities when they think about surviving zombies, which means different cars will help them survive. Whether zombies will ever come about is another story, but we had fun thinking about the best car to survive with. Here are some answers from Grappone team members: – Toyota Tundra Diesel: it’s a big truck and the diesel fuel will last longer. – Hyundai Tuscon: it is used in the Walking Dead and has worked for them. – Ford Raptor: great for off roading which will allow you to escape zombies in any terrain. – Ford F150 Ecoboost: get’s more gas mileage than the Raptor would but still packs a punch. – Toyota Camry Hybrid with Run Flat Tires: great fuel economy and the tires will help you run over debris. – 1975 Toyota Celica: aerodynamic, minimal electronics, easy to fix, wedge body style is good for shin breaking. – 2014 Ford Focus Electric: nice and quiet so zombies won’t be able to find you. – Ford F350: huge truck you can squish zombies with. – Ford Escape: Fuel efficient, lots of room for cargo, AWD will allow you to run over zombies. – Toyota 4Runner: great for off roading, a lot of room inside. – Honda Pilot Touring: AWD, sunroof will allow you to shoot on the move, …

The Hyundai Sonata has something for everyone. With New England winters getting colder heated seats are becoming a must have and you get that with a Sonata! The panoramic roof allows natural light in, I mean who doesn’t love a moon roof especially two of them! Whether you get the hybrid version or not you will still get great gas mileage. The Sonata has a pretty great color scheme, the Limited featured below has a black exterior look but the interior is a maroon leather complimented with a black dashboard. Come see the amazing Sonata at Grappone Hyundai.

Equus

Amanda Osmer Hyundai Leave a Comment

The Equus is Hyundai’s flagship vehicle. It is the most expensive and largest sedan that Hyundai makes and sells. The list of luxury and safety items is longer than you could imagine, but here are a few highlights of this luxury vehicle: The Equus is home to a V8 engine, 429 horsepower, and an 8 speed automatic transmission. The luxury feeling of this car extends beyond the driver’s cabin and reaches the back seats. With only 4 seats in this sedan instead of the typical 5, the back seats are much more spacious. The center console in the rear gives you the options to adjust the radio, recline your seat, put on the heated seats and use the chair massager. The driver’s seat can be adjusted 12-ways with power controls and the steering wheel is heated to help with the New England winter driving. With the Equus you don’t have to worry about fighting over who gets shotgun anymore.
