The Korean brand revealed the design of the restyled version of its flagship “chetyrehdverki”. A full presentation of the transformed model will be held in the near future.

After the videotizer and a series of spy photos, Hyundai released an official picture of the Grandeur sedan with a new design. Also announced that the facelift, not the next generation. Recall that the model actual sixth generation with the factory IG index released in 2016, is the largest and most prestigious “cityradio” in the line of Hyundai’s, beyond the home market it is known under the name Azera.

Changes a lot – the sedan completely redesigned front and rear. The main feature is the huge grille with the diamond pattern: some of them (those located closer to the new headlights) performs the function of daytime running lights – they light up only after the engine is started. The first time a similar solution was applied on the concept of Hyundai Le Fil Rouge, which debuted last year in Geneva. Then unusual DRL appeared at the new Sonata, but it they are made in the form of lines, creeps on the hood.

According to unofficial data, the sedan got a new base engine – a four cylinder 2.5 GDI family SmartStream with a combined fuel injection (into the combustion chamber and the intake manifold).
