We already have talked a lot about the new generation Hyundai Grandeur (codenamed as GN7), but almost every day there are new pictures like these from Cartopia who captured the three prototypes (with alloy wheels from 18, 19 to 20 inch) that are undergoing testing and again we can have a look to the front, this time with the DRL LED lights on.
What we know so far?
According to staff source, Hyundai plans to apply a design inspiration from the first-generation Grandeur to the seventh-generation Grandeur. Hyundai’s next-gen flagship design will drink from first-generation Grandeur DNA combining retro and futuristic design but it will also have latest tech available at HMG.
The informant said buttons will disappear in the new Grandeur, now will be touchscreens all over. The length of the car will grow to 5015mm from 4930mm. Inside, the rear seats could be reclined while the gear selector will be the same as IONIQ, so steering mounted.
The 18” inch wheels are borrowed from Kia K8
The front design is very close to Staria/Telluride, (that means will have vertical headlights) while the rear design is similar to Lucid Air, and similar to the rendering above.
A key feature of the All-New Grandeur will be the Magic Roof, like Mercedes Benz, instead of a regular curtain, will be capable of blocking light and heat or become transparent depending on drivers choose.
Talking about powertrain, it is expected to carry over the same engine line-up as K8 with which shares platform. The K8 is availble with a choice of 4 gasoline engines. A 2.5-liter and 3.5-liter GDi engines, a 3.5-liter LPG and a 1.6 Turbo Hybrid.
But compared to the K8, the Grandeur will have an all-electric and in addition to the existing five-seater interior configuration, it will also have a four-seater luxury variant with independent rear seats. Next-gen Grandeur is expected to go on sale during third quarter of 2023.
