2021 Hyundai Grandeur Rumors, Facelift

2021 Hyundai Grandeur – Hyundai officially discontinued the Azera sedan in the United States for a model of 2018 years as vehicle demand was deficient.

In addition, South Korean producers now have an upscale Genesis brand, which basically leaves no room for Azera. The Model remained on sale in the home market, however, where it was called Grandeur.

Hyundai introduced Grandeur as its flagship model, but a large sedan lost its status a decade later when the dynasty was launched as a range-topping car.

In the sixth generation since 2016, this luxury sedan gained a large Mid-Cycle refreshment in South Korea, as previously shown by the teaser image.

Although it does not reveal much, the clip shows a part of the vehicle’s exterior, and what attracts our attention the most is the lattice radii illuminated.

That’s the feature we’ve seen on some BMW models, and apparently, it could turn into the next strange design trend in the automotive industry. From this first glance at the Grandeur 2020, though, we have to admit the LED elements behind the Grille look good.

Retired in 2017 from the US market, the Azera/Grandeur seemed just as special as the all-new Sonata and proved once again that Hyundai had raised the game in terms of design.

The new face might make you think this is an all-new car, but in reality, it’s a significant facelift applied to vehicles that have been around for about three years.

At this point, we can’t confirm whether we’re going to deal with a design that’s just subtle from a car or a great Makeover.

We doubt the majesty of 2021 will be the new model as the current generation launched in 2016. A Mid-Cycle facelift looks like the next logical step for the machine in South Korea, and we have heard we will see it next month.

The massive change applied ahead goes beyond the fancy lattice pattern. Hyundai has also installed a pair of sharper lamps in the same vein as the smaller 2020 Sonata, thereby patch the more rounded clusters than the pre-facelift model. The designers also took some time to tweak the front Bumper, which now looks a more aggressive tad.

2021 Hyundai Grandeur Engine

The Grandeur 2021 can get a new machine. It’s The 2.5-liter Theta 3 motor, which debuted with the eighth-gen Hyundai Sonata and could replace the current 2.4 liters Theta 2 units.

The 2.4 GDi is currently the basic powertrain option and offers 187 horsepower (140 kilowatts) and 178 pound-feet (241 Newton-meters) of torque. Three V6 engines are also available, and this is expected to bring to the facelifted model without significant changes.

Hyundai South Korea has also published technical specifications on the updated flagship, which will be powered by a 2.5-liter gasoline engine that is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

A hybrid model combines a 2.4-liter gasoline engine with a 38-kW electric motor, a six-speed automatic gearbox, and a lithium-ion battery pack.

2021 Hyundai Grandeur Features

Being positioned at the top of the Hyundai hierarchy, it goes without saying 2021 the Grandeur comes loaded with features.

The large 19-inch wheels are available, along with Goodies such as head-up displays, sunroof panoramas, ventilated seats, and the 12-speaker JBL sound system.

The list goes on with full LED lights and electric seats, not to mention a large number of safety and relief systems as you would expect from an excellent car.

  2. I hope they sell this in the US too. What a beautiful car!

  3. JAMES M BEATTIE says:

    I have had 2 Azeras. Great autos! So sad to know they are not sold in the US market. Hyundai could sell 30k in year one with marketing know how. They claim it is not being sold due to cannibalizing Genesis sales, however the Genesis is not a hot seller. Adding the Azera to the Genesis line would give the Genesis the knockout punch in the USA.

    My wife had a 2016 Azera that was caught in a flash flood, causing the insurance company to total it. We drove 7 hours one way to buy a 2017 Azera, which see still has. She travels a lot for work, so she is looking for another car. She is not interested in anything except the Azera.
