Korean car-maker Hyundai showcased its new sedan called the Azera in its hometown. Called the Hyundai Grandeur in Korea, it is said to be a country-exclusive for now as the company hasn’t announced any plans for launching it abroad.

The new car makes a stand for the company’s fight in the sedan segment and comes with Hyundai’s new hexagonal grill which was seen on the new Elantra. It also comes with with a long hood as well as elongated double headlights with rounded edges which somehow looks a lot like the BMW 5 Series.

It is a more formal looking car with the sides featuring flowing character lines that add a bit of a muscular look. At the back, the Azera gets new full width taillights which look stunning.

Even on the inside there are some major changes. Instead of the downward flowing dash of the old model, the new version features an instrument panel with a dark top portion and lighter lower section. Between the two halves of the dash is a section that rises up at the center stack that has a large touch screen and an analog clock. With this launch, Hyundai has given us glimpse of how the next Sonata could look like.
