The launch of the next-generation Hyundai Genesis is drawing closer and closer, and this latest set of spy shots gives us our best look yet at the Korean automaker's new sedan. Caught testing on the Nürburgring, we're not only getting a better look at the finer details of the Hyundai's exterior, but this set of photos gives us a clear view inside the cockpit, as well.

Hyundai Genesis interior spy shotFor its new generation, the Hyundai Genesis appears to be moving a bit more upmarket in terms of materials and layout, with a redesigned steering wheel, gauge cluster and center stack. The current car's analog clock appears to be left intact, smack dab in the middle of the heating and cooling controls, but the rest of the updates look decidedly more modern and, if we're honest, a bit German.

Outside, it's obvious that the new Hyundai will wear a more aggressive front fascia, along with what appears to be a more rakish rear deck. Earlier reports have stated that the next Genesis will be much lighter than the current car, and with a much more sporty tune to the suspension. We'll know more when the car is officially revealed, though it's still unclear exactly when that will be.

      Note to automakers: I know you are all jumping on the bandwagon with radar-based adaptive cruise control (a feature which many of us don't need and will never use, though that's beside the point.) But please, engineer a better solution than the black plastic plates stuck on to the grille. No matter how you try to disguise them, they stick out... badly. Put it in the glass, or incorporate it into the lower front fascia or maybe even the headlights... there's got to be something else you can do. But I do not want an ugly black plastic plate stuck on the front of my luxury sedan.

        While you may not want it, others do. I'm sure many would be complain if something like that which is available in non-luxury cars wasn't available on a luxury car. I will agree though that the system should be better integrated and not stick out aesthetically. First cars that come to mind are the Chargers system and the Audi S6 which has it in place of fog lights.

        The Genesis does NOT compete with teh Camry. At all.

          You're right, the Camry is a much better car.

        Nerdflight1, you only gave FIDTRO a -14, oh come on, I've seen your downvote more than that. Is Hyundai cutting back on your pay per clicks?

      I wonder if this one, like the current garbage car, will have leather that will crack and fade at just 10,000 miles?

        What Hyundai's leather started cracking at 10,000 miles? Please provide a source.

          Methinks he had a bad experience with one. That or he is to Hyundai what Laser is to GM.

      apparently they've decided to keep it generic with a fugly interior....then again, it is an authentic 2nd rate Lexus.

      Why would you set up the suspension of a posh car like the Genesis on the Nurburgring.
        MrMonkaroo
        • 1 Year Ago
        @Julio B
        Ah Julio, most of the German luxury cars BMW, Mercedes, Audi etc. have their suspensions tuned on the Nurburgring...from their they adjust the suspensions accordingly depending on the trim levels. The ring helps establish dampening rates, yaw rate etc. This is what gives the car a good balance between smooth ride and handling.

      As a die hard Audi fanboy, even I must admit this car is sharp looking, full of performance, and hands down one of the best values on the market today

        No haters arriving here, the Genesis is a great sedan and has the RWD a lot of people like to see before posting crap. An article on an Acura on the other hand.....

      I recently moved to South Korea and the Genesis, Equus, Kia K9 are everywhere. Great looking cars with road presence. It's an anomaly to see a luxury car other than those around here. The current Genesis is a pretty good car. I can only imagine that Hyundai is going to improve that formula.

      Looking at the second to last photo, that interior looks very German like it came right out of BMW\'s current interior design language. I\'m not sure that is a good or bad thing. After seeing the new Azera interior I was looking for a little more wow, but I guess they are going for that austere understated feel.

        Well, Hyundai needs to do something if they want to achieve the premium look.
