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
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!
