Hyundai Aslan

Hyundai Motor Company has always tried to create innovative methods to please its customers. The company leads Korea’s auto industry and it is also an important auto company in the world. Ingenious thoughts have reunited in the form of a new luxury compact sedan which is the Hyundai Aslan. The vehicle has been previewed by the Hyundai AG at the Busan Motor Show in May.

The Hyundai Aslan makes room in the Hyundai fleet between the Grandeur and the Genesis. It is characterized by the company’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language with a massive chrome radiator grille and projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights. The vehicle also features double glasses on the windshield and the side windows to reduce the outside noise.

The inside of the Hyundai Aslan is inspired by the Genesis and this means we have leather seats, wooden trim on the dashboard and the door panels and electronic systems such as the adaptive smart cruise control, the forward collision warning system, the lane departure warning system and the blind-spot detection system. As standard we also have a set of 18-inch alloy wheels, 9 airbags, an adaptive suspension, ABS with EBD, ESP, a tyre pressure monitoring system, an electronic climate control etc.

The Hyundai Aslan is powered by two V6 petrol engines, a 3.0-liter unit developing 270 PS (199 kW) and 310 Nm (229 lb-ft) of torque and a 3.3-liter units producing 294 PS (216 kW) and 346 Nm (255 lb-ft) of torque. Both work linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and drive the front wheels. Pricing in Korea begins at 39.9 million won (around 37,000 USD). The producer’s target is to sell 22,000 units of the model next year. Let’s see if this will happen.
