Hyundai XG flagship will cost less than £25,000

HYUNDAI will reveal its new flagship model at next week's Paris Motor Show with the XG due to go on sale in the UK next year costing under £25,000. The model is built on the Hyundai Sonata platform and will come with a choice of a 2.5-litre V6 163PS or 3.0-litre V6 182PS petrol engine, both coupled to a five-speed switchable automatic transmission - the former engine already serving the Sonata.

Hyundai promises that the all-new model will offer an abundance of luxury equipment for driver and passengers including: traction control, electronically controlled suspension, power steering, twin front and side airbags, seat belt pretensioners, immobiliser and alarm, solar control glass, multi-code keyless entry, cruise control, integrated memory on the driver's power adjusted seat, hi-fi system and an audio-visual navigation systems.

The XG will take Hyundai into new sectors of the European market and it claims the XG will compete against models from other manufacturers where such specification levels usually attack higher prices.
