2002 Hyundai XG350 Owners Manual – The XG300 gets to be the XG350, as engine displacement is knocked up .5 liters to 3.5. Although horse power is only elevated by 2 to 194, 39 a lot more lb-ft is on the faucet for a fantastic full of 217, which should offer faster velocity.
The 2002 Hyundai XG350 is the automaker’s Deluxe Sedan featuring plenty of refinement, stylish design plus an inexpensive price label when assessed facing comparably outfitted cars in the course. The XG350 is supplied in two trim levels – the XG350 and the XG350L – with a 194 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 mated to a 5-velocity overdrive-turned on an automatic transmission. The L comes installed with an excellent lineup of improvements, including natural leather and wood grain interior sessions, a moon roofing and heated seats. Standard gear on the base involves a getaway PC and Ab muscles.
Leather material chairs types of surface and the standard energy accessories are typical both in grades of XG. The plastic material components are perfectly textured, and set up finish off is accurate. Over and above that, the L edition gets recollection and warming elements for the entrance seats, a tilt-down feature on the aspect-look at mirrors when the car is in opposite, a sunroof, two further spokes in each tire (for a complete of 12), additionally Infinity speaker systems and a 210-watt amp for the AM/FM/CD/cassette audio system. Inside an era of in-dash Disc changes and wallet-dimensions 7500-song MP3 participants, the optional 8-disc changer in the trunk area is throwback technology. No, the navigation program is provided, but there are road map wallets on every door!
The interior seems very Toyota-like-circa 1993. And 1993 was a dang excellent year for Toyotas. The XG is a bit more large in the front legroom than the Avalon, but virtually about three ins stingier in rear legroom with a bit a lot less in shoulder blades squish place. It’s as if the XG were channeling the aged Cressida’s soul.
Hyundai’s 3.5-liter Sigma V-6 is not related to the 2.7-liter Delta V-6 Hyundai shoehorns into the Tiburon sports coupe and Sonata sedan. Built with an iron block and lightweight aluminum heads, the Sigma has big 93.0-millimeter tube bores and a reasonably short 85.8mm crankshaft heart stroke-measurements similar to Nissan’s VQ35 family of all-aluminum 3.5-liter V-6s. But the deficiency of a factor-control device-timing structure leaves the Sigma-at 194 hp-lagging behind the VQ35’s productivity: 245 horse power in the Altima, 287 in the 350Z. The Hyundai’s 216 lb-toes of torque is also moderate, but the engine does run on standard-grade gas. Generating productive use of the Sigma’s energy is a several-rate automatic transaxle.
As a comprehensively prepared street glider, the XG350 is extensively capable. The composition is small, the control-arm-top and multilink-rear suspensions are certified, there’s very little wind or tire noises, and the drivetrain is appropriately sturdy and unobtrusive. Force it, and the XG’s constraints are evident. The P205/60HR-16 all-time of year Michelins don’t provide a lot get in touch with an area for 3650 weight (about 200 more than an Avalon) on what to slice and thrust, and though the carrier-and-pinion steering is communicative, its preferred phrase is understeer.
At this particular price, it’s almost impossible to overcome the XG in sheer quantity of equipment or even for placid manners. But these kinds of cars as the similarly costed 240-hp Honda Accord LX V-6 supply a more dynamically rewarding driving experience and much more contemporary design elements, despite the fact that the seats are taken care of in material and need to be tweaked physically.
