Next Hyundai Genesis seen (Spy)

GENIUS GENESIS: The successor the Hyundai Genesis sedan shows a more sleek look with fluidic styling.

These spy shots reveal the next-generation Hyundai Genesis, successor to the automaker's current Genesis sedan.

Codenamed "DH", the new Genesis will ride on an updated version of Hyundai's rear-wheel-drive architecture though all-wheel drive is also likely. Other DH enhancements will include some weight reduction and a sportier tuning.

ELEGANT STYLING

The cars will also have a sleeker look – something evident even with all the camouflage in the spy shots. Up front there are revised diode running lights, 'fluidic' styling and more-elegant tail lights.

Powertrain options aren't expected to change much: the 3.8-litre V6 and five-litre V8 will carry over with only some simple alterations. An eight-speed automatic transmission will be fitted across the board, though a 10-speed auto box is said to be in the works.

Look for the new Genesis to show in 2013.
