Undergoing winter testing

At one time, it was believed that the Hyundai Dynasty would be replaced by the new GH platform, but that went to Kia as the Opirus (launched in March 2003). It was also once expected that Dynasty will be dropped following the 2004 model year but apparently there is an active program to replace the car in 2007 with an all new rear-wheel-drive platform that also will provide the basis for the replacement for the Equus luxury car, snapped here undergoing hot-climate tests in Arizona. The replacement for the Dynasty likely will benchmark successful rear-wheel-drive sport sedans like the Infiniti G35 and the BMW 5-Series (less iDrive, of course). It will be interesting to see how Korean engineering translates to this type of car... a first for a Korean manufacturer. When the BH is launched, it should be worthy of being added to Hyundai's lineup in North America and in Europe. Video after the jump
