SEOUL -- South Korean carmaker Hyundai Motor revealed a teaser video that showed glimpses of the revamped version of "Grandeur IG", a full-sized sedan released in 2016.

The first version of Grandeur became the icon of successful businessmen when it hit the market in 1986. The sedan was popular for quality and its wide interior space. Its trunk, capable of carrying four golf bags, was a strong selling point.

The teaser video released on Tuesday highlighted key points of the car's renewed design. Polygonal design patterns were added to Grandeur's radiator grill and the tail light features a simple and unified design that resembles a thin red line streaking across the car's rear end.

The first actual model of the New Grandeur will be unveiled at Hyundai's vehicle research lab in Hwaseong on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Hyundai said it would launch a project to adopt "Unity", a 3D game engine, for design. By using the real-time rendering technology of Unity, the carmaker can slim down the size of 3D vehicle data files and create content based on interior and exterior designs.

Unity is a cross-platform game engine developed by San Francisco-based tech company Unity Technologies. The game engine is widely used by game makers and other companies related to 3D modeling such as virtual reality and augmented reality.
