Hyundai successfully executes simple, elegant interior design with logical button and control placement and layout. Look for modern touches such as LED elements in the headlights and advanced camera and radar monitoring systems. Seeing the 5-Series next to the prototype, it's clear where Schreyer gets his inspiration.The next generation of Hyundai's luxury sedan, which is being designed to take on the competition not just in the U.S. and Asia, but in Europe, too. The new Genesis sedan will sport Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture styling language: Even though the example caught by our spy photographers at Hyundai's Rüsselsheim, Germany, R&D center is heavily camouflaged, the sculpted flanks and coupe-like roofline are clearly visible. The second-generation Genesis sedan will brim with new tech features, such as full LED headlights and a number of assistance systems.
Engine lineup will probably include a V6 3.8-liter delivering 333 bhp (248 kW) and 394 Nm (291 lb-ft) of torque, together with a beefier V8 5.0-liter rated at 429 bhp (320 kW) and 509 Nm (376 lb-ft). The luxury of this sedan lies in its chrome side strips, and illuminated door sill plates. LED headlights, grill, which is normally divided into vertical stripes, elegant roofline, Folding mirrors, all this gives to this car an irresistible touch. Hyundai Motor Co. team of experts has enriched the new Genesis with new technical features such as the back camera, DVD navigation system and a touch screen. This mid-size sedan will also get an advanced navigation system, which normally has a voice recognition feature. Exceptional materials consumed in the interior of the vehicle, almost to perfection to detail give this vehicle a very luxurious exterior appearance.Those who want a real coupe, however, may still consider the Hyundai Genesis two-door. While the current car can’t fit a V-8 under its hood, Krafcik says the next-gen Genesis Coupe may offer power from a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 or even a naturally aspirated V-8.
The 2014 Hyundai Genesis will ride on an updated version of the current Genesis’ platform. In an effort to make it more competitive with its American, Asian, and European rivals, Hyundai is rumored to have dropped several hundred pounds from the sedan, and spent much time working on a sportier, revised suspension. Though Hyundai’s 3.8-liter V-6 and 5.0-liter V-8 will likely carry over with the eight-speed automatic, our source tells us a 10-speed automatic transmission .Seats are perforated leather, with the driver's seat being both heated and cooled. Front passenger and rear outboard passenger seats are heated, too. The front seats feature fairly flat bottom cushions and well contoured back cushions. The driver's seat has two memory settings and there's a power tilt-telescope steering wheel that powers up and away when you exit the car. Hyundai recently previewed its next-generation Blue Link telematics and infotainment system, which featured Apple Siri voice-activation and Eyes Free as well as Google Maps navigation services. Look for more Internet services as well on future Hyundai models, with full access to popular entertainment features like Pandora, HD Radio and SIRIUSXM.
The next-generation Genesis sedan will use an evolution of its current platform, a rear-wheel-drive architecture that can be modified to accommodate all-wheel drive. This platform is shared with the slow-selling Equus, as well as the Kia K9/Quoris. We expect the Genesis to receive far sportier tuning than in past models—Hyundai is serious about targeting Audi and BMW. The second is a 5.0 liter V-8 with the productive force of 429 horsepower and 386 Nm of torque. It is also worth noting that the European market will be offered as a diesel hybrid engine and a four-cylinder diesel with a production capacity of 220 horsepower. As for the drive, it will biit the rear-wheel drive and all-wheel. It is interesting the fact that this vehicle will be presented at the end of this year or early 2014, when it will be for 6 years from the first appearance of Genesis.
