    New York Auto Show: Genesis New York Concept


    • Bad name, Good looking concept.


    Yes, we know New York Concept isn't the best name. But the first concept from the Genesis brand gives us a better idea of what to expect with their future products.

     

    The design of the New York Concept is an evolution of the Vision G coupe concept we saw last year. It begins up front with a long hood, narrow headlights, and L-Shaped vents. Other details to take in is a fair amount of sculpting along the side, long rear overhang, low deck, and a Ceramic Blue paint color.

     

    The interior is dominated by a curved, 21-inch 4K touchscreen. The touchscreen is augmented by touchpads and can be controlled with swiping gestures. There is seating for four people in leather-wrapped bucket seats.

     

    Power comes from a hybrid powertrain with a turbocharged 2.0L direct-injected four-cylinder. Genesis is being somewhat cagey on specifics of the system, but they are saying total output stands at 242 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with an eight-speed automatic.

     

    Now this concept is a preview to Genesis's competitor in the compact luxury sedan called the G70. Expect to see some of this design in a production version within the next couple of years.

    GENESIS Reveals Hybrid Sports Sedan Concept At New York International Auto Show

    • ‘New York Concept’ reveals a unique approach to driver-focused luxury
    • 2.0 GDi 245ps hybrid with 8-speed automatic transmission demonstrates GENESIS brand’s balance of sporty agility and refined performance
    • GENESIS ‘Athletic Elegance’ design direction further explored in a technologically advanced, innovative concept


    March 23, 2016 - GENESIS has unveiled its striking ‘New York Concept’ luxury sports sedan at the New York International Auto Show. The New York Concept hints at future GENESIS design direction with its expressive and refined ‘Athletic Elegance,’ first seen in the Vision G concept and in production form with the GENESIS G90 premium luxury sedan.

     


    Acknowledging the GENESIS brand’s sporty and agile nature, the hybrid concept generates 245ps and 36.0 kgf.m of torque from its 2.0 GDi powertrain coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The advanced technological features and precise design language of the concept emphasize key aspects of Korean culture, while elevating the value and perception of the GENESIS brand.

     

    Genesis New York Concept
    The exterior of the New York Concept presents an elegant interpretation of a luxurious performance vehicle, defined by well-balanced proportions and refined surface treatments. Inside, the concept car combines advanced technology with absolute luxury, contrasting innovative electronics against finely-crafted materials.

     

    Manfred Fitzgerald, Head of GENESIS said: “The New York Concept is a progressive concept car that showcases the design quality of the brand. With its expressive volumes and refined design, the New York Concept truly embodies the ‘Athletic Elegance,’ that characterizes GENESIS products and will continue to do so for future models that come from our luxury brand. Revealing the concept in New York is a fitting opportunity for GENESIS.”

     

    Design Inspiration
    The design teams took inspiration for the New York Concept from modern luxury lifestyles and products, plus the early success and progression of the GENESIS brand. They merged this confidence with forms from nature, and the process of transforming raw materials to create an uncompromised expression of pure technological art.

     

    Designed to express the GENESIS modern view of luxury, the New York Concept brings a fresh perspective to the segment by offering the unexpected, yet still satisfying the needs of modern luxury buyers. Alongside the car’s inherent performance and comfort characteristics, the New York Concept adds fresh, daring and unexpected touches through blending cultural heritage with modern art and technology.

     

    Exterior design
    The nature-inspired character of New York Concept is seen through simple yet powerful forms with voluminous surfaces and coherent features. The overall shape of the concept is characterized by a long hood and expansive dash-to-axle ratio, visualizing the car’s performance-oriented nature and its resulting athletic stance.

     

    At the front of the car, the New York Concept demonstrates power and confidence as growing attributes of the GENESIS line-up. The prominent, upright grille is visually supported by sleek, horizontal headlamps. The deep inner edge of the lamp is characterized by a pixelated light guide, giving a sophisticated, vibrant appearance. Air flow guides sit below the lamps, channeling air through the forward wheel housing. Pronounced front fender volumes, enhanced with longitudinal crease lines, complete the concept’s road-focused attitude.

     

    From the side, the sleek and tapered cabin emphasizes powerful shoulders, bringing visual power over the rear wheels and quarter panels, adding to the impression that the New York Concept can deliver the power expected of the luxury sports sedan. Short front overhangs contrast with longer rear overhangs, completing the proportions of an elegant and refined performance car.

     

    The rear perspective of the New York Concept is distinguished by a low and sleek rear deck, further enhanced by strongly tapered body flanks. The slim, elongated taillamps echo the headlamps’ vibrancy, reinforcing the sensuous and luxurious character of the exterior.

     

    With its visually expressive form, the New York Concept is complemented by thorough and creative attention to detail. The unique treatment of the engine hood and side vents blend function with style, creating a new precision aesthetic. The integrated vents for the hood, front fenders and quarter panels improve aerodynamic performance, a reflection of the hybrid GENESIS model’s fuel efficiency capabilities.

     

    The front and rear door handles sit flush with the bodywork, integrated along the belt line of the New York Concept, further enhancing aerodynamic performance with simplicity in design. The exterior panels are finished in a custom-designed Ceramic Blue color, while copper-colored inlays in the lower bumper fascia and sills convey the uniquely modern approach of GENESIS design and material language.

     

    Interior design concept
    The interior of the New York Concept further projects the future design direction of GENESIS. It expresses a high-tech and sophisticated ambience, emphasized by the use of an advanced information control unit with a distinctively curved display.

     

    Eliminating some of the negatives often associated with increased technological content in a luxury vehicle, the design team took an innovative direction for the instrument panel design. A 21-inch floating, curved screen incorporates driver instruments and multimedia functions, creating potential for new, sculpted forms for the front seat occupants. The digital display is combined with classic analog driver instruments. The concave screen and the convex instrument panel complement each other in an aesthetic interaction while transmitting visual lightness to the interior. The open steering wheel design is ergonomically formed to facilitate visibility of the instruments while enhancing handling control.

     

    A logical and spacious center console divides the interior space through its length axis into two separate halves. Combined with the curved, floating screen, the Central Control Panel (CCP) creates a new user experience through a tactile and considered control lay-out. Finely polished GENESIS Concept aluminum inlays for the interior incorporate a handful of essential functional switches and reflect the GENESIS commitment to deliver high-quality design through exceptional attention to detail.

     

    Four individually sculpted single seats reflect the dynamic attributes of the exterior while acknowledging the GENESIS focus on human-centered luxury.

     

    Interior color and materials
    The concept’s interior showcases meticulously-wrapped full leather interior, with accents of anthracite contrasted with rich tan leather on seats and doors, while sliced suede leather used on the headrest brings a soft tactile accent.

     

    Highlighting the visual connection between the instrument panel and the floor console, which to the eye looks like it is visually floating, the New York Concept uses metal for contrasting effect. Copper-toned, stainless-steel mesh echoes the copper accents of the exterior and demonstrates a new, lightweight textile approach. The New York Concept also features polished aluminum switchgear and functional elements, with small touches of copper applied on exterior accents.

     

    Interior HMI concept
    The New York Concept presents a unique Human Machine Interface (HMI) concept. With this innovative concept, GENESIS sets a new standard for user experience and function control. The New York Concept showcases how the instrument cluster and center stack are merged into one curved horizontal display, allowing a unique driver-oriented architecture.

     

    On top of the instrument panel, embraced in a sleek aluminum casing, hovers a super-wide, curved 21-inch 4K display made by LG. Unique LG Advanced High Performance In-plane Switching technology allows for a greater viewing angle and exceptional richness in color, resulting in a more spacious ambience. The bowl-shaped Central Control Panel with 3D geometry is ergonomically optimized for usability and forms an electronic centerpiece of this unique HMI concept. This ergonomic optimization allows for intuitive single- and multi-touch finger swipes, while also enabling handwriting recognition and circular finger movements - particularly useful when scrolling through long music or telephone lists.

     

    The user interface presents all relevant information at a glance, combining touchpads with the advantages of today’s rotary dial-based interfaces. Additionally, a 3D gesture-control sensor allows the operator to ‘throw over’ specific content from one area of the screen to another, raising the freedom for personalizing the display information.

     

    The New York Concept provides a glimpse into the next-generation driver interface, ready to handle the growing complexity of a connected, digital world, where user-friendliness safety and functionality set the standard.

    Yeah...I see the same similarities.

    The same stance...

     

    Anyway, the Genesis looks good from that tiny picture.

     

    I bet you, that Hyundai/Genesis has the ballz to build it though, unlike Buick/GM with the Avenir.

    It looks fine, but not really any wow factor for me.  Nothing seems exciting about it, so I'll have to see what the production car looks like.  They will build some form of it though, the Avenir and Avista will end up the same place as the Chrysler Phaeton and Atlantic.

    Genesis New York does have a nice ring to it.

     

    It could replace Buick's and Chrysler's  Park Ave and New Yorker in the New York State of Mind side of things.

    I don't know if it could do that in a New York Minute, it might take some time for that to happen, but there is no denying that this concept does have a New York Groove about it.

    Some weird details...that little turned up area on front edge of the rear doors, over the B-pillar and on the back edge of the front doors just screams of desperation to do something different...pointless.  Likewise for the vertical gashes below the taillights.

This is paired with a sport-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission and the choice of either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.

The Sport gets two exclusive colors; Polar Ice and Sevilla Red. For the interior, Genesis has added leather sport seats, a thicker rim for the steering wheel, aluminum pedals, carbon fiber trim, and a microfiber suede headliner.

      "Following its launch earlier this year, the very first Genesis G90 customers are now enjoying their new cars," said Erwin Raphael, general manager of Genesis in the U.S. market. "Every Genesis store in the country now has at least one G90 onsite so customers can experience the car first hand and take one for a test drive. This marks another milestone for the luxury brand as it continues to grow."
