Hyundai hasn't been to keen about sharing details on the new Azera / Grandeur, but a promotional video has unmasked the secretive model.

As previewed by the teaser photos, the next-generation Azera adopts a "fluidic sculpture" design that mixes elements of the Sonata and Genesis. The styling is tastefully elegant and there are a number of high-end touches such as LED daytime running lights and a panoramic sunroof.

Inside, the cabin echoes the Sonata with a massive touchscreen display and metallic accents. However, the luxury-oriented Azera also boasts a "supervison" instrument cluster, wood trim, and a prominent center console.

Powertrain details remain elusive, but the leading candidate is likely the Kia Cadenza's 3.5-liter V6 with 290 hp (216 kW / 294 PS) and 338 Nm (249 lb-ft) of torque.

The Azera is expected to be launched sometime next year, so stay tuned for continuing coverage.
