2014 Hyundai Genesis, codenamed DH, spy shots
A heavily-camouflaged 2014 Hyundai Genesis RWD luxury sedan was snapped testing in South Korea today!
Codenamed DH, the new Genesis sedan will build atop the success of its predecessor which has been launched in the USA in 2009 and is rumored to incorporate a more dynamic exterior design.
Design-wise, the fully-remodeled Genesis sedan will incorporate Hyundai’s latest styling cues including the hexagonal signature grille, front and rear LED lamps and prominent side profile line.
The 2014 Genesis will be based on a heavily-upgraded rear-wheel-drive architecture which will provide significant contribution to the car’s overall weight reduction. According to sources close to Hyundai, the new model will lose more than 100 kilograms in overall weight.
Rumored to make its official public debut in the second half of 2013, the 2014 Hyundai Genesis will also provide sportier driving experience thanks to its upgraded suspension set-up.
Under the hood, the forth-coming Genesis sedan will feature a range of highly-potent V6 and V8 engines mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission.
Additionally, the fuel-savy hybrid powertrain is rumored to be available as well, however, we have no technical details about it at this point!
Thanks for sending us spy photos, Kim!!
