Sold as the Grandeur in Korea and as Azera on the export markets, Hyundai's flagship model reached its seventh generation six years after the launch of its predecessor.

When the Korean automaker introduced the 2022 Azera, it blurred the lines between its flagship model and the Genesis brand products, Hyundai's premium brand. The new top-shelf vehicle tried to attract more customers from other premium brands and carmakers that provided vehicles in the same price range. Still, they didn't offer the same level of performance and luxury.

For starters, the design was highly advanced for its era. It featured an LED strip named Seamless Horizon Lamp that ran across the entire front fascia from side to side. It was placed above the parametrically designed grille that was flanked by headlights. The vehicle's profile revealed its retractable door handles and the curved beltline that connected the front daytime running lights to the rear taillights. Moreover, the greenhouse emphasized the luxurious appearance by adding a third window behind the rear doors. Finally, at the back, the Azera featured another light strip from side to side like the front one; only this one was red.

The cabin boasted premium and sustainable materials to create a warm and welcoming interior. Translated into regular words, it featured man-made leather and recycled materials for the front bucket seats and the rear bench. Thanks to its generous wheelbase, the Azera provided plenty of legroom for rear passengers. The dash panel featured a neatly integrated digital instrument panel, continued by a touchscreen display for the infotainment system. Another screen was placed under the dashboard and above the center console for the HVAC unit. In a way, it resembled the design of older Hyundai vehicles.
