All New 5G GRANDEUR(HG), AZERA 2012 promo & making of film(Behind the scenes)
Hyundai Takes Wraps Off 2012 Grandeur (Azera)
Back in November, Hyundai revealed a sketch of its upcoming 2012 Grandeur,
known as the Azera in the U.S. Now, we can bring you the first look of the
real thing thanks to a Hyundai promotional video and prelaunch site.
Rather unsurprisingly given Hyundai's recent design sketches, the
production 2012 Hyundai Grandeur is a dead-ringer for the sketches revealed
in November. And this is no bad thing as the Grandeur renderings were
rather striking, giving the Grandeur/Azera an upscale look befitting a car
far above the current Azera's starting price of just over $25,000.
The only notable changes we see are a slight redesign of the grille, toning
the styling down by making the edges slightly softer and the taillights.
Changes to the taillights are extremely minimal as the central portion is
now clear with wraparound brake lights rather than a u-shaped, clear,
central insert sandwiched by red brake lights.
In the video, Hyundai also reveals the interior for the first time, showing
what looks to be an extremely upscale cabin. We'll have to wait and see it
in person for ourselves to make a final judgment on materials, but given
our experiences with the new Sonata, we have high hopes.
Although the car shown here is technically the Korean market Grandeur, it
should be nearly identical to the U.S.-spec Azera. We'll reportedly see the
new Azera at the Chicago Auto Show in February. We're also curious about
exactly how Hyundai will position the Azera between the Sonata and Genesis
2014 Hyundai Azera Limited Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/azera/2014/?id=32972 You probably don’t
know what the Azera is. Hyundai does not sell many of these models in a
calendar year. That’s too bad because the 2014 Hyundai Azera is a good
looking car that has a bunch of great details. Every 2014 model comes with
the 3.3 liter V-6 that is good for 293 horsepower. Fuel economy is
rated at 19 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. This Limited model
tested here has a base price of $34,750.
On the inside there is a ton of room in the 2014 Hyundai Azera. The
interior materials are smooth and plush. The ride quality is great which
makes this car a good highway cruiser. Hyundai has done a good job of
making the interior feel upscale and there is great attention to detail
paid to the surfaces and buttons. Dynamically there is nothing to complain
about and more people should certainly buy the Hyundai Azera.
