Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

First model of the Hyundai’s luxury sub-brand.

The Genesis G90 has made its European premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. It is the first product of the Athletic Elegance school of design that was penned by Hyundai’s Prestige Design Division, and is the first product of Hyundai’s ‘Genesis’ luxury division.
