2014 Hyundai Genesis saloon spied less disguised

Next-generation Hyundai Genesis saloon has been caught less disguised testing on the Nürburgring, revealing more of the front and rear. Overall design is much sleeker and sportier, showing a new bigger grille at the front.

The new Genesis saloon will continue to use the rear-wheel drive architecture, though an optional AWD system is also expected.

Engine lineup is expected to include a 3.8-litre V6 and 5.0-litre V8 linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission, while a brand new 10-speed automatic is also rumoured. There are also reports about a possible hybrid model.

Current generation Genesis saloon is not sold in Europe, but back in 2011, Hyundai’s European boss, Allan Rushforth, hinted the next-generation Genesis should be engineered for Europe, to offer an alternative to BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class. We’ll see soon is Hyundai bringing the new Genesis to Europe as well or will the i40 stay their biggest model for European customers.
