More 80s than a neon disco – the Hyundai Grandeur

Hyundai Grandeur

Hyundai continues to explore its heritage with a fully electric version of its 1986 flagship the Grandeur 

No one would begrudge a car brand mining its archives for inspiration. Even the most moriband of OEMs has at least one classic in the back catalogue. However, it is also fair to say not many expected Hyundai – the South Korean automaker, which is on a winning streak of designs that would make Martina Navratalova blush. And if that culture reference seems a little stale, try placing it in the context of Hyundai’s revamped Grandeur, which is more 80s than the A-Team.
