Four-door, heading the model line of the brand (the flagship role went to her after the appearance of a separate luxury brand Genesis), improved in all directions, from the exterior to the technology, and added to the premium.

All-new Design

The sixth generation Hyundai Grandeur retained the proportions of the previous model, but it got a more aggressive, aristocratic and refined look. The design of the front-end with the cold-blooded gaze of the lighting equipment and the four-door trapezoidal radiator grille reminds the Genesis G90, which adds to its solidity, and from the stern shows solid outlines with a proprietary “lintel” between the lights and figured nozzles of the exhaust system in the bumper. Positive emotions are caused by the solid silhouette of the car, and its dynamism is extolled by a long hood, sloping outlines of the roof and nices waves on the sides.

Even More Luxurious

The interior of the Hyundai Grandeur of the 2017 model year impresses with its exquisite design and abundant leather cover. The main focus of the inside of the sedan is on the tablet of the multimedia system installed with the latest fashion with a dashing curve of the frame, with which stylish analog watches coexist. In the lower part of the center console, the reference radio and climate control blocks settled, and behind the multifunctional four-spoke steering wheel there was a classic combination of instruments with dials and an onboard computer display between them.

Interior of the car provides riders with perfectly profiled seats and a sufficient supply of free space in front and behind. In the zone of the rear passenger’s reach there are buttons for folding the right front seat so that the car can be used as a representative sedan of the lower level.

But the trunk of the four-door is definitely not inferior to the consumer qualities of the trunk of the previous model.
