#1 of 4303 Hyundai's new premium sedan "TG"
Feb 09, 2005 (12:31 pm)
Hyundai readies premium sedan for Seoul show
The car has the name 'TG' and is successor to the Grandeur XG. The domestic sales campaign gets underway in May.
There is much speculation about the TG's powerplant. There are likely to be several displacement options: ranging from a 2.7-litre four to 3.3- and, it is rumoured, 3.6-litre V6.
Hyundai officials have let slip that the TG engine consumes five percent less fuel than the XG's transversely mounted 24-valve Dohc 3.5-litre V6 yet generates 25 percent more power. The XG put out 195ps, on which basis the TG is going to be capable of about 250ps. There are rumours of a 3.8-litre V6 option capable of 270ps or more.

And a cleaned up shot with photoshop...

I believe that last picture is an old Infiniti M45 with a Hyundai badge photoshopped on, but I may be wrong.

Sounds about right to me but no one knows how the TG will look like when it finally comes out.

That last picture is clearly a current model M45 with an H badge.
#6 of 4303 Grandeur L330

He's right - that pic is definitely NOT the front of the new Grandeur - how do I know? I've got photos. Luckily enough I managed to snap the cars undergoing filming for their commercial in Australia (they probably won't be released here). I am looking to offload these pics (which are great quality) as I am a hobbyist photographer who likes to make a bit of money on the side to pay for the gear! Anyhow, I was going to attach a sample pic, but I can't work out how to do it (anyone help?!).
Think - BMW type fin to the rear of the roof, wing mirror mounted indicators, plenty of chrome, dual exhausts (one either side of the rear bumper) horizontal chrome bars on the grill...
Anyway, if anyone out there is interested in further pics - email simon.westgmail.com
#7 of 4303 a new shot from Geneva 2005

unfortunately, the front shot from Geneva isn't available as of now, the second shot was taken in SK and still somewhat camouflaged. but you can definitely have a glimpse of it.
#8 of 4303 some more shots from Geneva

whatcha think about it? I've got a mixed feeling. It doesn't quite stand out tho, a tad disappointing and encouraging.
hopefully, the interior shots come out soon.

#10 of 4303 TG and Sonata both have very disappointing...

rear end treatments. Some kind of Sable thing, here. I guess Hyundai is going through the mid-nineties Japanese conservative binge.
