Hyundai reveals Genesis hybrid sedan concept in New York


Hyundai, under their newly formed luxury car brand Genesis, is showcasing an entry level sport sedan concept. Genesis New York Concept sports similar lines to the existing Genesis G90 and G80, and could provide an idea on what the G70 may grow into once it goes into production. Genesis G70 will take on BMW 3-Series, and others in the segment.

Clearly there’s no concrete insight into the future of Genesis G70 just as yet. The Genesis hybrid sedan Concept preview focuses on its exterior design, which is being termed as luxurious and modern.
