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!

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.

2013 Hyundai Sonata: A Toyota Beater?
Hyundai is a manufacturer that has identified it's mission, sought a
solution and acted on it. The mission: To defeat Toyota. Toyota's the
giant. The 2013 Hyundai Sonata, if it meets or exceeds it's promise, has
the chance to intrude heavily on the Japanese giant.

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

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.
