Updated engines, new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language featured on full-size Hyundai sedan
Unveiled at a private gala in Seoul, S. Korea, Hyundai revealed the next Genesis sedan in the metal to VIPs and invited media members.
The next generation of Hyundai’s rear-drive full-size sedan will benefit from an updated line of engines – ranging from 3.0L to 5.0L, of which only the 3.8L V6 and 5.0L V8 are sold here – and a newly developed HTRAC all-wheel drive system.
Genesis also sees an increase in high-strength steel utilization resulting in stiffer torsional rigidity.
Hyundai, aiming at the Germans, doesn’t want to be left behind on the technology front either. A new cabin CO2 sensor, multiple driving modes (Eco, Normal, Sport, and Snow), emergency steer support, haptic steering warning system, and a full suite of safety alert systems are included to keep you out of harm’s way and between the ditches.
The new Genesis is also the first Hyundai to receive the next evolution “Fluidic Design”. Expect other models within the Korean automaker to follow suit.
