It will not be sold in Canada as the once-available Azera.
Hyundai’s premium and luxury efforts in North America are focused on Genesis.
Before launching the Genesis brand, Hyundai attempted with varying levels of success to break into luxury segments. It began with the Hyundai XG300 and more or less ended with the Equus before Genesis was founded. Despite this, what is known as Grandeur in other markets carries and looks convincingly luxurious.
Hyundai’s all-new 7th-generation Grandeur flagship sedan is a sight to behold. The exterior and interior designs are both modern and luxurious, while still paying homage to the legacy of the Grandeur name. The stretched wheelbase and receding cowl point give the sedan a sporty feel, while the spacious interior is perfect for relaxation and recovery.
“The seventh-generation Grandeur expresses our respect for the past and commitment to move on to the future,” said SangYup Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of Hyundai Design Center. “We are creating a new standard for the premium sedan market through emotive design and a refined customer experience.”
The Hyundai Grandeur’s design is defined by a Seamless Horizon Lamp which emphasizes the sedan’s width and visual power. The philosophy is also applied to the rear combination lights. The cabin is covered in premium and sustainable materials including eco-process Napa leather and anti-bacterial leather applied to various touchpoints. Fun fact, the Grandeur’s steering wheel was also inspired by the single-spoke design of the first-generation car.
The all-new 2023 Hyundai Grandeur will not be coming to North America.
