Hyundai Motor’s flagship sedan Grandeur has returned in 6 years as a 7th-generation full-change model.
Hyundai Motor said Monday that it will release and start selling “The all-new Grandeur”.
The Grandeur, which was first launched in 1986, has been popular as a luxury sedan in Korea for more than 30 years.
Although Grandeur’s public image has been strengthened since the launch of Hyundai Motor’s luxury brand Genesis, it is still considered the No. 1 popular car among middle-aged people. In fact, the pre-ordered volume of ‘The all-new Grandeur’ reaches 109,000 units.
The all-new Grandeur is inspired by the first-generation Grandeur’s angular design. In addition, it has the longest wheelbase in its class, emphasizing its classic and luxury sedan image.
The all-new Grandeur has 45mm, 10mm, and 50mm longer front, wheelbase and rear overhang, respectively, compared to the previous model. In particular, its 2,895mm wheelbase is the longest in its class.
Looking the front, The all-new Grandeur integrated DRL, positioning lamps, and indicators into a ‘Seamless Horizon Lamp’ design, creating a future-oriented image.
In addition, it provides a 20-inch sputtering wheel option inspired from the wheel design of the first-generation Grandeur.
The interior is spacious with its ergonomic slim design.
In particular, it made the console space wider by integrating all control systems, including electronic shift lever, into a one-spoke steering wheel inspired by the first-generation Grandeur.
The all-new Grandeur also installed new infotainment system ccNC for the first time, and has greatly expanded the scope of OTA (Over-the-Air) software updates.
As a result, consumers can add or upgrade various features at any time and place they want without visiting the service center.
The driving comfort and quietness have also improved.
It is equipped with an electronically controlled suspension with road preview that can recognize road quality through front cameras and navigation. In addition, it greatly reduced road noise by applying ANC-R technology, double-glazed soundproof glass, and triple sealing doors.
The all-new Grandeur is offered with four options: 2.5L GDI gasoline engine, 3.5L GDI gasoline engine, 1.6L gasoline turbo hybrid, and 3.5L LPG.
The engine models produce 198-300hp output and 25.3-36.66kgf·m torque. The fuel efficiency is also 10-11km per liter, which is quite good for a large sedan.
According to Hyundai Motor, the hybrid model improved its output, torque, and fuel efficiency by 13.2%, 28.6%, and 18.4%, respectively, compared to the previous model.
