The Grandeur was Hyundai’s full-size luxury sedan until 1998. After 5 generations, Hyundai could be working on the next generation of its mid-size luxury sedan (from 1999) according to the latest spy pictures we received from South Korea.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]Released in 2011, the current Grandeur is available in different markets around the world, with a different choice of engines, for example, in South Korea is available with hybrid, diesel and petrol engines while in North America its only available with V6 engine.

Under Sonata’s body of this test mule, Hyundai wants to hide the next-gen Azera (as its called in North America). Looking at the pictures we can see

Looking at the pictures, Grandeur (codenamed as YG) test mule showed something unusual in the A and C-pillars of the vehicle. The car have a large piece of sheetmetal riveted before the front door and also behind the rear doors to stretch the body plus a longer wheelbase. Alongside this, the car showed YG appellation in one of the windows.

    This looks like the new Sonata, not the Grandeur. I’ve seen them on Seoul streets already on some of the newer taxis.
