Maybe you remember when a month ago we showed a spy shots of a mysterious Hyundai model with the same Genesis rear end, but different side and front design. Later we known that Hyundai will unveil this car in a concept form at the upcoming Busan International Motor Show, scheduled on May 29.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]Today and thanks to our sources, we know is expected that Hyundai will launch into the South Korean market a new RWD luxury sedan any time between September and October. The model, developed under the project name “AG,” is bigger than the midsize Grandeur and smaller than the Genesis, a mid-size luxury sedan.

Detailed specifications have not been revealed yet, but the model is likely to have a larger chassis than the Grandeur’s and an engine bigger than 3 liters. It is expected to have features and functions comparable to the Genesis sedan but with a more luxurious interior.

In order to appeal to female consumers as well, Hyundai will apparently focus on providing a smoother and more comfortable ride with reduced noise. Prices are likely to range between W35 million and W45 million (US$33,250 to US$42,750). “With the launch of the new model, we will speed up sales of our compact and larger sedans,” a Hyundai spokesman said.
