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

Many thanks to Bob Mayberry Hyundai in Monroe, NC for allowing me to make
this video! I forgot to do my usual dealer intro so I'm crediting in the
description. In this video I give a full in depth tour of the all new
274hp 2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T. This particular one being a Limited. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
