The seventh generation Hyundai Grandeur sedan will receive a steering wheel in the style of its predecessor of the 80s of the last century. This is evidenced by spy photos that were at the disposal of the site The Korean Car Blog. It is also known that outwardly, at least from the front, Grandeur will resemble Staria / Telluride, that is, it will receive two-story optics. In addition, it will lose almost all buttons, which will be replaced by touch panels.
The new Grandeur is expected to share a front-wheel drive platform with the Kia K8. The range of fuel engines, most likely, will also be common. It will include a 2.5 GDI Smartstream unit, a naturally aspirated V6 3.5 GDI petrol, V6 3.5 LPI propane, and a hybrid unit based on a 1.6 T-GDI turbo engine. At the same time, the Grandeur will also have a fully electric version, as well as a version with two separate second-row seats.
One of the features of the model will be a panoramic Magic Roof that changes transparency, which is also promised to the Genesis GV90 electric crossover. Externally, the Grandeur will resemble the Staria / Telluride (full-width illumination, massive headlights), but with the addition of design elements that refer to the first generation car. In addition, the pictures of the interior show a retro-style steering wheel with a massive central part – almost the same one is on the Grandeur EV restomod.
The sales of the new Grandeur will begin in the third quarter of 2023. In the meantime, the sixth generation sedan is being sold in South Korea, and it was introduced in 2016. There are no four-doors in global markets so as not to create internal competition for Genesis.
