Photos of the Hyundai Genesis

Hyundai Genesis Photos: Hyundai Genesis front

Large angular grille opening has a strong whiff of Audi. No fog lamps--this is the 3.8.

A good angle, accentuating the strong forms through the body side while shrinking the heavy tail.

First-gen Genesis had a much stronger Lexus vibe. More fluid and less distinctive.

Hyundai Genesis Photos: Cadillac CTS front quarter

CTS Vsport trimmer, sportier. But the rear 3/4 have had too much edge removed, too much E-Class.

Pull back, and that heavy tail comes into view. The 5.0's larger wheels help. This is the 3.8.

A Genesis 5.0. Note the LED fog lamps and larger, more dramatically styled wheels.

Long wheelbase, a fair amount used to put distance between the passenger compartment and front axle.

Another good angle despite the excessive visual bulk in the rear fascia. Some BMW influence here.

My favorite detail: how the shoulder flows into the tail lamp, then dips under it.

Hyundai Genesis Photos: Hyundai Genesis interior

Very warm interior with tan leather, brown piping, and extensive matte-finished wood.

Idiosyncratic styling with downscale trim. Even in the R-Spec the old buckets lacked side bolsters.

The primary inspiration for the interior in the new Genesis?

Hyundai Genesis Photos: Cadillac CTS interior

A whole lotta design inside the CTS. Too much for some tastes.

Does the gray aluminum in the middle fit with the rest?

Big knob, touchscreen, or conventional knobs and buttons? All of the above!

Big win here. Cushy AND supportive.

The back seat could be more comfortably positioned, but it's nicely shaped and roomy.

A usefully large trunk, but unlike in competitors the rear seat cannot fold to expand it.

For once a Hyundai engine cover that implies a longitudinal powertrain isn't lying.

Extensive bracing for handling and safety. With a little dressing up, cover wouldn't be needed.
