grille and rest copied from evo concept
those panzees at hyundai better quite copying other peoples designs and come up with their own before law suits are dropped on them.

plus no matter how exciting the design the performance numbers and drivetrain can never match evo's bmw's or subaru's so they are no competition at all.
juss good looking below average performers...yawn

Those headlights have been going onto concepts for far longer than the current 5 Series, Infinitis and Evos have been around. Though I do agree with the yawn. Reminds me of the Mercedes R-Class, trying not to be a van, but pretty much is.

Hyundai is doing something right I tell you.

Their latest rounds of cars have been killing the competition, usually at cheaper prices, and their concepts, well they haven't been horrible either. I can see allot of design elements that could easily be encorporated into their next generation vehicles.

If only they had released that little hatchback without butchering it.

Considering that Hyundai will have access to the new DCX/EVO/Hyundai 2.4 T engine, I think we can expect to see some interesting cars from them very soon. Even Toyota has said that they are the Manufacturer to watch. The only thing that I can see them missing at this time is a mass produced Halo/sports car to enhance there reputation.

Something similar to the release of the 240Z in 1969 for Nissan.

Yeppers. They've come a hell of a long way since the days of the Pony.

That said, haven't they been showing around a RWD Tiburon lately? Or is it just still a rumor?

They have shown Several intersting concepts in the HCD cars, but none have made it to production with the promise they showed in concept form.

It's still a rumor, although a very persistent one. It's pretty safe to assume that Hyundai is going to offer RWD luxury sedans in a few years. The question is whether they will use that platform on the tiby or not. I personally think they will, if thre is a problem with Hyundai right now then it's certainly not being too cautious, it's being too ambitious.

Well, they've got the boot lacing part of snowboard unloading taken care of.. but no solution to the biggest problem finding a place to put the snowboard to wipe snow off of it before you pack it up. The concept car in that pic is one gust of wind away from getting a large gouge in the paint from some sharp metal edges.

[edit]Otherwise, I really like the styling.. especially the HR Giger headlights.[/edit]

^ Don't normally see roof racks on concepts but it will have one (or as option) when and if it goes to production.

Default The Hyundai Genus

Hyundai Unveils GENUS New Generation Wagon

Seoul, Korea - April 10, 2006: When the Genus concept vehicle made its international debut last month at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, Hyundai Motor Co. revealed a preview of future European customer demand in the D-segment. Created at the Hyundai European Design Center in Rüsselsheim near Frankfurt, Genus combines the sporting dynamism of a coupe with the versatility of a traditional wagon.




"The dynamic five-door concept blends roominess and comfort with elegance and practicality. The Genus challenges the traditional compromise of vehicle choice faced by demanding modern lifestyles. It offers space and comfort, similar to a traditional wagon, but has an elegant, dynamic exterior. The Genus thus provides the answer to emotional desires and practical necessity, " explains Thomas Bürkle, Chief Designer at Hyundai's European Design Center.

Capability

The Rüsselsheim design team developed the Genus as a D-segment vehicle with a broad appeal to many target groups. Thus, with its multi-use concept the Genus can be used for work, extensive shopping tours, family holidays as well as for numerous free time activities.

A long wheelbase, reduced front and rear overhangs and a wide stance enable increased interior comfort and loading capacity without compromising the fundamental proportions inherent to a coupe. For maximum versatility, the floor features an integral hatch which can be lifted to reveal a retractable bench seat. The bench extends out to rest over the trunk sill and together with a sliding deck that is concealed in the bumper, it forms a multi-use outside seating area. The sliding deck can also be used separately for transportation of bicycles and other sports equipment.

Due to an inset B-pillar, the side windows form a continuous line. They are fully retractable and together with a large panoramic glass roof enable multi-sensorial experiences normally associated with coupes and cabriolets.

The medium-size wagon is powered by a 2.2 liter Common-Rail Diesel engine (CRDi) and equipped with a 5-gear automatic transmission for a dynamic, yet comfortable and economic ride. The 4WD underlines the sporty character of the Genus.

Exterior Design



The formal language of the purist concept has been defined by the free-flowing form of a wave. Expressive Front and rear blend in a harmonious fusion through a constantly evolving extruded body, painted in metallic champagne.

The face is defined by a hexagonal mouth taking up the whole front like the air intake of a fighter plane, where all surfaces start around it and develop into the body side. The jewel-like swept-back headlamps are similar to birds' eyes that sit on the flanked side of the truncated triangular shaped front end.

Strongly looking A-pillars are firmly routed in the sculpted bonnet producing a flight of an arrow section, which shoots towards the front grill.

The flowing silhouette of the car has a sleek cab forward configuration with a tapering roofline dropping dramatically away at the rear. Uninterrupted negative shoulders connect the slanted narrow greenhouse onto the tall body, giving it almost coupe-like attributes.

The interplay of the shoulder line between the front and rear lamp reminds of a silk cloth draped over the string of a bow which is fixed under tension at both ends. The panoramic side glass is chopped by the clamshell tailgate. The shut lines of the tailgate orbit around the rear glass producing a ring structure, which doubles as the D-pillar. This element, which intersects the rounded tail, is held in place by the tear trop shaped rear lamps.

Interior Design

The interior's visual forms mimic the continuous flowing nature of sand dunes. Vast surfaces seemingly sculpted by gently flowing wind, generate tension and dynamism whist retaining a sensitive fluidity. The focal point of the interior is the elegantly contoured instrument panel combined with the floating frame of the foldable centre stack that conceals the blue illuminated menu-screen.

Vast swathes of natural aubergine leather and contemporary silk-like reflective textile drape over the primary surfaces, which contrast with light beige leather inserts. The free flowing sculpted form is complimented by intricate anodised metallic details such as the longitude air vents or instrument surround.

The Genus' interior represents the concept of a versatile living space, a cocooning environment with a high beltline in which to feel safe and protected. In being surrounded by the rhythm of curved flowing volumes creating a sensory spirit, passengers will experience a relaxing environment. The cosseting wave inspired form of the seats provides an exciting invitation for occupants. Seeking to encapsulate passengers, an integrated supporting shell flows in a serene wavelike form, which is repeated in a perforated graphic on the seat upholstery. The shell embraces the seats and forms a visual alliance from the centre console to the integrated armrest.

The wrap-around roll-bar with an integrated almond-shaped roof light separates the front from the rear passengers' compartment. The individual rear seats slide forward and build a visual unit with the sliding two-layer trunk floor, providing a flexible wrap-around cargo space.

Genus' Specifications

Configuration 4WD, 2+2 coupe-wagon Wheelbase 2,850 mm Overall Length 4,750 mm Overall Height 1,565 mm Overall Width 1,870 mm Wheels 20' aluminium Engine 2.2 liter CRDi Transmission 5-gear automatic
