Hyundai has introduced the Grandeur facelift and AG luxury sedan at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea.
The revised Grandeur/Azera has received a reshaped front bumper with LED fog lamps, different front grille and two-tone high-gloss rear bumper while the overall length has been extended by 10mm. The central area of the dashboard has been remodeled and benefits from new HVAC controls along with a standard 8-inch touchscreen navigation display. It also comes with a generous list of safety and assistance systems such as Front Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Smart Trunk, Advanced Smart Parking Assist and Lane Departure Warning.
Engine lineup includes a newly developed Euro 6-compliant 2.2-liter R diesel benefiting from a variable geometry turbocharger and developing 202 PS (149 kW) and 441 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque. There's also a reworked Theta II 2.4-liter GDI gasoline motor which produces 190 PS (140 kW) and 241 Nm (178 lb-ft).
Moving onto the AG, it's described as an "elegant large sedan" benefiting from Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language featuring a long hood and a prominent character line that runs the entire length of the wheelbase. It adopts a front-wheel drive layout and promises to provide "quiet and sophisticated driving comfort" once it goes on sale in the second half of the year.
