The Hyundai XG is part of the Hyundai Grandeur product line that has been in existence for more than 25 years. Hyundai introduced the Grandeur in 1986 as full-sized vehicle marketed internationally. The product line has undergone a number of updates and redesigns that have occasionally included relabeling the product. The 1998 redesign that generated the XG label also moved the car from the full-sized to mid-sized category.
The 1998 redesign of the Grandeur produced the Hyundai Grandeur XG which was marketed in North America as the Hyundai XG. This marked the first design of the Grandeur line that was entirely developed by Hyundai rather than as a shared product with Kia.
The original design of the vehicle boasted a choice of one of four v-6 engines. The base engine in most locations where the XG was offered was the 3.0-liter 193 horsepower engine with the car marketed as the XG30. In some locations the cars were equipped with a 2.5-liter engine with the cars labeled as the XG25.
In 2002, the XG350 was introduced with a 3.5-liter engine. This model was the top-of-the-line product boasting the most power along with a multi-disk CD changer, luxury trim and a better sound system.
<p>The 2006 redesign of the Hyundai Grandeur changed the product line’s labeling. The North American version of the Grandeur was renamed the Hyundai Azera. The car was also known under this label in Asia, South America and Africa.
While the Hyundai Grandeur product line has lasted more than 25 years, its changes have made the more recent models almost unrecognizable when compared to the early year’s designs. The early year’s Grandeur was a rather boxy full-sized car similar to any of the sedans of the era. The 2012 is touted as featuring a “fluidic sculpture” design.
The modern design includes a choice of four-cylinder and V-6 engines ranging from about 176 horsepower to nearly 300 horsepower. The vehicle is designed as a four-door sedan and continues to use a transverse front engine powering a front-wheel drive configuration. The Azera competes with vehicles such as the Chrysler 300, Chevy Impala and Ford Taurus. The new design of the Azera is anticipated to continue the product line’s life for the foreseeable future.
