UPDATED Friday November 19 at 10:30 with comment from Hyundai Australia.
Hyundai has released the first official renderings of the all-new Hyundai Grandeur.
Little is known about the new Grandeur, with production details, performance data and specifications still to be released.
What is clear, however, is that the Grandeur will finally adopt Hyundai’s “fluidic sculpture” design language – the front especially sharing much with the current Hyundai i45.
The flowing rear LED lights are an evolution of the current design, but appear much sharper and more cohesive.
Hyundai says the new Grandeur will combine “tradition and high technology, setting a new standard for the premium large sedan segment”.
Hyundai Australia confirmed the new Grandeur will not be introduced in Australia, making the current model the final to be sold Down Under.
The current model Grandeur sold in Australia received a facelift in June this year, although the vehicle has always been a slow seller.
Just one was registered in October, taking the total to 20 for the year (compared with 45 after 10 months in 2009).
