Dealers of the brand began to take orders for a restyled flagship model two months ago. Now, the automaker has announced the official start of sales of luxury items.

Hyundai dealers in South Korea received the first commercial copies of the updated Hyundai Grandeur sedan, which the other day officially went on sale. This model, also known as Azera, currently bears the title of the largest sedan in the model line of the Korean brand. The “pre-reform” car was introduced back in 2016.
