Hyundai premiered two new models at the 2014 Busan International Motor Show including the all-new AG premium large sedan and the revised Grandeur. The new AG is scheduled to debut in Korea later this year between the Grandeur and Genesis sedan.
The AG will "offer quiet and sophisticated driving comfort, while adopting a series of advanced convenience features", while the Grandeur will offer a more refined, almost Teutonic look combined with an upright face.
Under the hood, there's a new (Euro VI) 2.2-liter R turbo diesel unit that produces 202PS (199hp) and 441Nm (45 kg/m) of peak torque, while Hyundai made some improvements to the standard Theta II 2.4-liter GDI petrol engine that delivers 190PS (187hp).
Other enhancements for the 2015 Grandeur include the revised motor-driven power steering system, and added standard content such as the Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Front Collision Warning System (FCWS), and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) systems.
