2011 Hyundai Grandeur Released in Australia

The Australian division of South Korean manufacturer Hyundai announced yesterday the launch of the 2011 Grandeur, a revised and tweaked version of the existing model. The changes are not that extensive and mostly tackle visual issues and trim levels, but Hyundai hopes the facelift will give the car a new appeal.

On the outside, the Grandeur (also known as the Azera) features a new radiator grille design and black-bezel headlights. A lower air dam, located between the new front fog lamps, now comes in black-mesh covering.

From the side, the visible changes are the addition of the seven-spoke alloy wheels and outside mirrors with LED indicator lamp, made to match the new LED headlights. The b-pillar received a black piano finish.

At the back, the stop lights are more pronounced, while the new moulded bumper with chrome insert houses the updated twin-exhausts. On the interior, Hyundai added only a revised metal finish centre floor console.

The 2011 Hyundai Grandeur comes equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control System (TCS), four-channel, four-sensor Anti-skid Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and eight airbags as standard.

For the facelift, Hyundai added to the model one-touch triple turn signal, combined key and remote device, as well as outside mirrors fitted with ‘puddle lamps’ which illuminate the ground on approach to the vehicle.

The new Grandeur is subject to a five year/unlimited kilometer warranty and Hyundai Premium Assist.
