2012 Hyundai All New Azera, Grandeur (HG) (It's not spy shot)
We have just gotten a hold of the latest spy pictures of the next-generation Hyundai Azera/Grandeur, code-named "HG". Due to be launched later this year (though word is that unveiling might occur within a month), the new Grandeur is gearing up for a significant redesign for the 2012 model year.
As of this posting, details on the new Grandeur are relatively slim. We do know that it will share the front-drive configuration platform with the Kia K7/Cadenza sedan. Powertrain details are ballpark guesses at this point, but judging by the new Grandeur's position in the Hyundai line-up - slotting between the Sonata and the Genesis - we can definitely expect the 3.5L or 3.8L Lambda II V6 (280-300 hp) powerplants as plausible options. With Hyundai's efforts for better fuel economy, the turbocharged gasoline direct-injected (GDI) 4-cylinder found in the Sonata is also a possible candidate.
In addition to the new Azera/Grandeur, we have a lone spy photo (found after the jump) of a Hyundai prototype that we can't quite put a finger on as to what it is. The subcompact test car is a near dead-ringer of the already-unveiled 2012 Accent/Verna, yet the front fascia sporting a new design arouses questions as to what the prototype is really. Leave us your guesses as to what it might be in the comments below!
► 2012 Hyundai Azera [design]
Hyundai Motor America today introduced the all-new Azera in a North
American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Azera is the fifth vehicle to
adopt the company's signature Fluidic Sculpture design language.Tucson,
Accent, Elantra, Sonata and Azera now all have a modern, sleek,
sophisticated style, creating the illusion of constant motion. This
flagship Fluidic Sculpture sedan also features a more powerful Lambda II
3.3-liter GDI engine, six-speed transmission, best-in-class combined fuel
economy of 23 miles per gallon and a wide range of advanced safety
The Lambda II 3.3-liter GDI engine is the heart of the 2012 Azera. It
produces a best-in-class specific output of 88.8 horsepower per liter, while
having the smallest displacement V6 in the segment. This engine has a
high-pressure direct injection system (over 2,200 psi), which dramatically
increases power and torque, while reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
This system eliminates the need for a large displacement V6 engine and
increases the compression ratio from 10.4 to 11.5 for greater thermal
efficiency and output. It also features all-aluminum construction, four
valves per cylinder, piston cooling jets, roller timing chain, CrN Physical
Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating on the top ring chamfer and Dual
Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) for a broad power spread. A
three-stage Variable Intake System (VIS) further broadens its power curve
to improve the vehicle's off-the-line acceleration and passing performance.
EPA fuel economy estimates for the Azera are 20 mpg city / 29 mpg highway /
23 mpg combined.

Just like the Elantra and Sonata, the popular subcompact was completely
redesigned and will be offered in four-door sedan and five-door hatchback
versions. Everybody was unanimous: the South Korean manufacturer has
introduced yet another quality product that gives the impression of having
much more than what you pay for.

Positioned between the Sonata and the Genesis, the 2012 Hyundai Azera will
come onto the market next summer and feature the automaker's latest take on
the `fluidic sculpture' design philosophy. The video shows the South Korean
market Grandeur but the car sold in the U.S. should be very similar. It
appears to be a very stylish sedan, with the best elements of the Sonata
and even some influences from Hyundai's Equus flagship featuring.

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.
