Official renderings of the Hyundai Genesis have been released, confirming the look of the next-generation sedan caught undisguised last week.

Hyundai‘s renderings clearly outline the luxury large sedan’s angular front end and sleeker body lines, and give us our first clear look at therear of the Korean manufacturer’s all-new 5 Series rival.

The swept rear windscreen flows to a short boot lid with a stylised lip, while thin, wide-reaching tail-lights stretch from the tailgate to deep into the rear-quarter panels.

The second-generation Genesis will become the first to be built in right-hand drive, and is under consideration for our market. Hyundai Australia has already committed to importing the 2015 Genesis coupe, following confirmation it too will be available in right-hand drive.

The new Genesis will feature a choice of rear-wheel drive and the new addition of all-wheel drive, called HTRAC. Engines are expected to comprise the carry-over 3.8-litre V6 and 5.0-litre V8 petrol units, while the transmission is likely to be a ZF eight-speed automatic, though Hyundai is also developing a 10-speed auto for future premium models.

The Hyundai Genesis will make its official public debut at January’s Detroit motor show.
