The Hyundai Dynasty is a premium executive sedan that debuted in 1996.[2] The features of the Dynasty were electronically controlled suspension, dual climate control, and power memory seats (front and rear). In order to differentiate the Dynasty from its platform-shared smaller Grandeur, Hyundai used a different badge (stylized D logo) for Dynasty. The Hyundai Dynasty was produced in Ulsan, South Korea and it was discontinued in 2005. The Dynasty was the top level flagship at its introduction, but it was a front wheel drive vehicle. It had a higher level of luxury equipment and was available in extended length versions over the more basic Grandeur. When the joint luxury flagship Mitsubishi Proudia/Hyundai Equus was introduced, the flagship designation was then removed from the Dynasty and sales suffered as a result with cancellation. With the introduction of a separate rear-drive luxury channel launched called Genesis Motors, the market position formally held by the front-wheel drive Dynasty is being replaced by the Hyundai Aslan.
