at the North American International Auto Show in January 2013, and it is taking direct inspiration from the concept for the next generation of the Genesis luxury sedan.

“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,” said Moon Sik Kwon, head of Hyundai’s R&D Center.

The second-generation Genesis sedan uses Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language to combine long, arcing lines with a blunt front and rear. It has a new hexagonal, single-frame, waterfall grill that is broad and blunt at the front but a gently arcing hood.

The body has improved rigidity for better safety and has more ultra-high-strength steel than the previous generationZ3 2.2i AutomaticBMW Z3 2.2i AutomaticGermany, 2000 > 20031 photo

Hyundai did not release any images of the interior, but it says that it will have a tailored look with high quality materials and finishes. It will also get a new infotainment system that will be easier to use. It will also be the first Hyundai to use its new variable ratio electric power steering system.

Hyundai is not talking about engines for the new Genesis yet, but all-wheel drive will be an option for the first time. The concept used Hyundai's 5.0-liter V8 with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Genesis is the first of the company’s cars to use the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 language, but Hyundai says that all of its future cars will use it.

The new Genesis will launch in Korea first before the end of the year and be introduced to the US in 2014.
