Hyundai has published two renders of the 2014 Genesis. This is the first Korean model that adopts new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. The new philosophy brings a big, singular hexagonal front grille and a more sex-appealing look.
“Launched in 2008, Hyundai’s first premium rear-wheel drive sedan Genesis surprised the industry with its outstanding product competitiveness,” said Moon Sik Kwon, head of Hyundai Motor Group’s R&D Centre, in his welcome remarks. “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.”
Its interior design aligns with the premium exterior, adopting consistent design details that fully reflect careful consideration of ergonomics and intuitive operation. The 2014 Genesis sedan also focuses on Human Machine Interface (HMI), which lets drivers intuitively recognize vehicle functions, allowing for more convenient and effective use of those functions.
The upcoming 2014 Hyundai Genesis will feature the new all wheel drive system, dubbed HTRAC. It can electronically control torque split between the wheels depending on surface conditions.
With improved suspension and application of various advanced technologies, the Korean model offers top-class driving and ride and handling performances. Greatly improved lateral stiffness of the front and rear suspensions and excellent weight balance contribute to the making of a stable chassis. Meanwhile, application of electronic control suspension such as Advanced Traction Cornering Control (ATCC) enables greater stability in corners.
Furthermore, Rack-mounted Motor Driven Electric Power Steering (R-MDPS) was first applied to the model with a variable gear ratio, which provides high-speed stability and direct response at low and medium speeds.
