The new Hyundai Genesis will soon be released
What we can expect from the new 2017 Hyundai Genesis?
Hyundai shot back European giants with a face-lifted version for the 2012 model year, but now Hyundai is working even harder for the second generation Genesis.
This company has always had the shortest product cycle. This allows Hyundai to keep its models fresh and with BMW and Mercedes in the loop of competition.
Hyundai hasn’t announced any details on what changes the company will apply, but we expect a new design language. The sedan version will feature major changes on the front grille – similar to the one found in the new 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, new headlamps, a new bonnet and new bumpers. The interior will also receive a series of new technologies and equipment.
The cabin has received an improvement over the previous model, and is equipped with luxurious materials. As a result of changes inside the boot space is increased to 3.7 liters, and now stands at 26.9 liters.
New Genesis is 4,990 mm long, 1,890 wide and 1,480 mm high, with a wheelbase of 3,010 mm. It is available with wheels of different sizes – from 17 to 19 inches, and comes as standard on the rear of the drive shaft. HTRAC operating system on all four wheels is optional.
