In Korea, a partially disguised prototype of the next generation Hyundai Grandeur full-size sedan was photographed on the roads. The car is only partially covered with camouflage film, so some of the exterior features are visible.
In particular, it is worth paying attention to the glued triangular window visually separated by the rear pillar of the body from the door windows – this solution evokes associations with the Genesis GV70 crossover, which is also produced by the Hyundai Motor concern. The short stern and bunk headlights with vertical low and high beams attract attention.
The code for the next Grandeur is GN7. According to the portal The Korean Car Blog, the length of the car is 5015 mm, that is, relative to the current Grandeur, the figure is increased by 85 mm.
GN7 is created on a single basis with the KIA K8, an executive sedan produced since 2021. The platform assumes front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
The engine lineup will also be borrowed from the K8, that is, for the new Grandeur, a choice of four options is expected – petrol engines with a volume of 2.5 or 3.5 liters, or a 3.5-liter bi-fuel unit (petrol + propane-butane), or a hybrid powertrain composed around a 1.6-liter petrol turbo.
The next generation Grandeur should hit the market in the third quarter of 2023. The current Hyundai Grandeur has been produced since 2016.
