If you're itching for a chance to lay an eyeball on the interior of the next-generation Hyundai Azera, itch no more. The Korean motoring press have gotten their hands on the Grandeur, as the vehicle is known in its homeland, and someone has been kind enough to shoot a quick, techno-laden video of the vehicle inside and out for the world to enjoy. The clip gives us an unobstructed view of the sedan's new lines as well as an extended peek into the cabin. Judging from what's shown here, it looks as if Hyundai is continuing to expound on the design language the company pioneered in the Sonata and grew with the Elantra. We like what we see.

The redesigned Azera has already been confirmed for the U.S., so it's only a matter of time before we see the big four-door cruising around on our streets. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself.

      I had a chance to drive one extensively while I was in its home country Korea. While its exterior is quite striking, its proportions are a bit awkward in some angles. Heavy mess of the body, especially rear quarter body panel, combined with sculpted surfaces makes its 18 inch wheels look very small. Interior is definitely quite impressive with nice fit and finish, materials, featuers and amenities. However, when I sat back to back with Infiniti M35 (while different class) difference in what is 'luxury interior' to each brand is very apparent. To my tastes, Grandeur(Azera)'s interior is too fuzzy and lacks finesse and restraints of the other. How does it drive? You will like it if you like floating on the road with light steering with no input from the road and cushy ride. Not my cup of tea.

        If you're not interested, don't open the article and waste your time writing a negative comment that contributes nothing.

      The Avalon hasn't got @#$! on this. The masses can have their appliances. I'll go with cars like this which have a little more 'Seoul' in them. (see what I did there!?)

        how can you have respect for a company that does nothing more that copies others and smushes them together? its pathetic and a weak business model.

      Looks very good and definitely a major step up over the current uninspired model.

      Normally I'm not a big fan of the Hyundai "fluidic sculpture" (the Elantra looks disproportioned with it and the Sonata's design is very handsome but will wear off quickly) but I think that in this case, it looks stunning on this car. I think the fluidic sculture works a lot better on bigger vehicles. The interior looks very upscale and the specs which have been released so far are excellent. Hopefully Hyundai paid attention to the driving dynamics and made it more like a Maxima or Charger kind of vehicle than an Avalon. The Maxima and Charger are the driving dynamic benchmarks in this class. Can't wait for the fullsize wars in auto magazines to begin. 2012 Charger/300 with 8 spd vs. Maxima vs. Azera vs. 2013 Taurus vs. GM Eplison fullsize vs. Avalon.

        I totally agree and could not have said it any better.

      Looks like they went a little overboard on this model with that whole fluid sculpting design theme.
