Hyundai has teased its upcoming 2014 Genesis by releasing a couple of images showing the front and rear three quarter views of the luxury four-door coupe.
Focus your attention towards the sloping roofline and we don't blame you for thinking about the Audi A7! The 2014 Hyundai Genesis previews the brand's Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language and some parts of the car can be traced back to the Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept that was shown in January this year at the Detroit Motor Show.
Hyundai say that it took over four years to develop the new Genesis and that its main strengths are outlined as a premium design, best-in-class chassis, European brands’ level of driving, ride & handling performance (thanks to testing on the Nürburgring), with modern safety and convenience features.
The new Genesis will first go on sale in Korea before debuting in other markets next year. Hyundai also points out that starting with this Genesis, all future Hyundais will adopt the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language.
Moon Sik Kwon, head of Hyundai Motor Group’s R&D Centre, said -
Launched in 2008, Hyundai’s first premium rear-wheel drive sedan Genesis surprised the industry with its outstanding product competitiveness. The evolved all-new Genesis is the product of Hyundai’s best resources and capabilities and we strongly believe it will be a game-changer in the market.
