BIRTH: Genesis reaches Europe
Hyundai have revealed their all-new Genesis in Europe for the first time.
The executive sedan will come to the continent in limited numbers, boasting refined performance, technology enhancements, multi-link front and rear suspension and near-equal weight distribution.
Available in a single, high-specification form, it will be powered by a 3.8litre V6 GDI engine paired with eight-speed automatic transmission.
Standard comfort features will include Smart Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Braking and the world’s first CO2 cabin sensor to protect drivers from drowsiness.
The Genesis is the result of a €342million investment by Hyundai over a four-year period.
“All-new Genesis offers a unique premium ownership experience that demonstrates the true breadth of our engineering and technological capabilities.”
