Unless they are upsizing the Elantra again, it's probably the new Sonata.

Looks like a Toyota somehow.

Again, if its hyundai, IMO, it had taked design from other cars. The rear quarter glass after rear door is just like we have in Audi. The overall profile reminded me Mazda 6 just ahead of what we have now ( the one sold just before the present generation ).
Can also be infact peugeot or citroen or even Renault, that is what the overall profile hints to me.

Adding images.

The rear and the tail lights reminds me of Passat

Its not the Genesis, which has already been launched. YOu can check out Genesis pics and specs here - the roofline is definitely different:

this is a super luxury limo and a likely replacement for Hyundai Equus.
