The Hyundai Grandeur is an important car for the Korean company – it is their first business class sedan, which has a very long history, starting in the 1980s: today we meet the seventh generation of the model! Moreover, under the condition of the possible liquidation of the Hyundai Sonata car, the importance of the Hyundai Grandeur sedan for the company is growing even more – before us is the real flagship of the “Koreans”, only cars of the separate Genesis brand are higher than it. So how did the new flagship turn out?
It is immediately clear that it is very stylish: the Hyundai Grandeur business sedan combines the classic silhouette of the first Grandeur and the modern “face” of Hyundai – with a thin LED strip, a wide radiator grill, and hidden headlights. The rear is also eye-catching: just look at the double red lines, the top of which functions as lights. The side surfaces of the new Hyundai Grandeur sedan are decorated with frameless windows, retractable door handles, and noticeable horizontal “shoulders”. In general, this design concept received its own name Seamless Horizon.
The interior also combines retro style with modern technology. For example, the steering wheel with a highlighted central spoke and the general shapes of the front panel are again a hint of the first Hyundai Grandeur. But three color displays (instrument panel, multimedia system, climate control) are from the modern world. According to its status, the Hyundai Grandeur business sedan offers Nappa leather, wood veneer, and aluminum interior trim.
Technical data of the new car have not yet been made public. But from general information, it is known that the new Hyundai Grandeur will be larger than its predecessor and will receive a platform with a transverse arrangement of engines.
However, what exactly these engines will be is still an intrigue. Some sources report a hybrid based on a 1.6-liter “turbo”, an atmospheric 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, as well as a 3.5-liter V6 for the maximum versions of the Hyundai Grandeur sedan. More detailed and complete information will be made public closer to the start of sales at the end of this year or at the beginning of the next.
