According to The Korean Car Blog, Hyundai isn't too happy with the sales of the Aslan premium sedan.

The Aslan, currently sold only in Korea, is positioned between the Grandeur and Genesis, and comes with 18-inch wheels and 9 airbags.

Positioned below the Genesis in the domestic market, the Hyundai Aslan launched in November last year. It managed 1,320 units in the month of November, dropped to 992 units in December, and was recorded at 1,070 units last month. The Grandeur and Aslan together managed to sell 7,583 units last month, which is lower than what the Grandeur alone managed (at 8,134 units) in January 2014.

In a move to increase sales, Hyundai is reported to have slashed the prices of the car. Korean media reports from the launch had said the Aslan's sales target for 2015 was 22,000 units.
