Default What's brewing at Hyundai?

Geneva Motor Show

Hyundai introduced its Genus concept, an attractive crossover that looks like it could go into production tomorrow and sell equally well in the U.S. and overseas.

Designed in Europe, the Genus rides on the Sonata sedan's platform. Inside, it resembles a minivan, with a roomy cabin and a rear seat that is a traditional bench seat, or folds flat into the floor or slides outside of the vehicle's body to carry a bike. It also features a panoramic glass roof and has all-wheel drive.

Hyundai executives have said they intend to emphasize crossovers in their future product portfolio. In fact, the Genus is the second crossover concept unveiled this year. The sporty Talus made its debut at Detroit's auto show.

I saw this car when i visited the Geneva Motorshow. Honestly, I quite liked the overall profile of the car. Its fresh and away from some quirky hyundai's of the past.

The cabin looks roomy and the package seems really good. This car should sell well around the world, if put into production.
