Default Hyundai Genesis concept

Hyundai showcased the Genesis concept, which could lead to a RWD tubiron.

After copying the Accord, it seems Hyundai are after the new Camry design now.

I must admit, even though it is a copy of the Camry, that concept looks amazing!

The Genesis concept has been around for about 4 years now - long before the new Camry was released. So the only angle we could use is industrial espionage.

I think it looks bloody hot - way better than any Camry. Better than most or all of its competitiors, in fact. At least in concept - unfortunately with concepts what you see isnt what you get.

Nice to see the level of detailing, though - plenty of attention to the little details.

The car looks very good, though a bit Camryish but so what, i am sure they have done lots of efforts to come up with this.

The spy photos were both detailed and plentiful, and today, any remaining mystery about the new Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan's looks can be put to rest. The car was previewed to the media in Korea this week, and the photos released by Hyundai show the Korean-market version of the car au naturale.(Note the newly-unveiled winged Genesis emblem on the hood and wheel centers.) Specific technical details are not given save for confirmation that the four-door Lexus-fighter will be offered with a 375 horsepower Tau V8 and a pair of Lambda V6's (3.3L and 3.8L). According to a company spokesman, the most expensive version of Hyundai's new flagship should come at around $40,000 USD depending on equipment (the V6 should sticker under $30K). Koreans will be able to buy the car in January, with US and Chinese sales to follow later in the first half of '08. The car's full dog-and-pony show reveal will take place next month at the Detroit Auto Show, and we'll be there to bring you all the details.

Another link with pics

On paper looks mighty impressive, and so do the pics. Hyundai wants to play with the big boys for sure.

Looks good! Hyundai seems to be revamping its designs and the stuff to hit the roads really is eye-catching.
Hats off to Hyundai!!

That is striking similar to Camry! For a second I got confused looking at the front of the car.

It looks great though.
