Hyundai has been advertising the all-new generation of its Grandeur for quite some time and now, the automaker has officially launched the large sedan in its home market. The Grandeur (aka Azera in various markets) is now larger than the preceeding model with an overall length of 4,910 mm, 1,860 mm wide and standing 1,470 mm tall. The wheelbase, now 2,845 mm, has been extended by 65 mm over the previous generation.


Topping the range under the hood will be a Lambda II 3.0 liter GDI (direct-injection) with 266 bhp and 310 Nm of torque. Hyundai's Theta II 2.4 liter GDI, which is used on the Sonata, will also be available in the Grandeur. It produces 198 bhp and 250 Nm of torque. Technologies on the new Grandeur include Vehicle Dynamic Control, Vehicle Stability Management, a tire pressure monitoring system and Emergency Stop Signal.

Hyundai plans to export the Grandeur to international markets in 2012.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

The front design is a direct Camry rip-off. The rear is copied from the K5 and Saab 9-5. Interior is a bland of Genesis and Avante. Hmm....
