New Interior Shots of Hyundai Genesis

55 posts in this topic

If anyone thinks this isnt a very well designed interior, you need to get your eyes checked. Lets just hope they follow through with the exterior.

Spy photographers caught the Hyundai Genesis testing in the Midwestern U.S. earlier today and from these latest photos, we can see changes to the interior that include an iDrive-esque control knob located behind the transmission lever. Hyundai designers nixed the original Genesis designs, so these are the first photos we've seen of the redesign.

Hyundai previewed the Genesis at the New York International Auto Show.

The interior shots reveal a host of changes and we've included photos of the original design, taken in 2005, to give you an idea of what's been modified. In addition to the control knob, you can see the large navigation display, the heavily revised gauges (incorporating electroluminescent dials) and wood-trimmed steering wheel with a different center design. The entire center console is slightly different, as well It's likely that the model you're looking at is a very high-end model, given the navigation, wood wheel and, apparently, ventilated seats.

As for the exterior changes: The new prototype's grille is now trapezoidal instead of the original round-cornered

rectangle. The new grille slats are no longer vertical - they're horizontal like the concept - but there appear to be five

thin chrome slats, instead of the three thick slats marking the show car's face. The concept grille's distinctive notch above the Hyundai badge isn't exactly visible on this prototype, but the camouflage is probably hiding it.

The new car's headlights are more pointed, and they stretch well back along the fenders, again mimicking the shape of Genesis show car's lights. The lights on this prototype are far more conventional, however, eschewing the concept's neon border surrounding thin LED strip lights. The production car's front bumper has been similarly toned down, with more conventional fog lamps integrated with a more rounded lower air-intake.

The profile of the Genesis hasn't really been altered since the first prototype, but the newest prototype showcases a shark-fin GPS or satellite radio antenna plunked on the roof line, something that has become almost a staple of luxury cars. The tail-lights were too covered to see how much of the Genesis concept has made it onto the production car, but the wheels on which this prototype was riding look just like the nine-spoked wheels used on the show car.

That interior looks beautiful...I hope since Chrysler hired the interior consulting firm that is responsible for Hyundai's new interiors we'll see some stuff like this in the Chrysler showrooms.

Hyundai has been making a definite change lately. They're becoming quite nice vehicles.

I actually cannot stand these types of interiors, where the center stack bulges out and it looks like layers of silly-putty. Sorry, but I don't need to get my eyes checked, and this thing sucks (from a design point-of-view).

The overall appearance is nice, but I can't shake the feeling I've seen this melted stack design before...

Also becoming all to common in Benz and BMW vehicles. Even has a hint of Mitsu Endavor in it. It looks nice detail wise but I like the Azera's better and the styling/shape is all wrong. I would bet it is high quality. Not to mention the G8's more. It bludges and that ruins it.

I sat in a Veracruz, and it's interior is very, very nice..it demolishes the Edge's interior...which was in the same lot...but the exterior ruins it. I hope it looks as good as the concept.

I would also add the latest S-Class for the modern touch.

You both win. The bad news is, you both won Elantras. Sorry.

The Genesis' interior looks like a mix between Mitsubishi and 7-Series/S-Class interiors.

I'm sorry, am I supposed to be impressed?

First and Second generation Auroras still are better.

Because naturally, you've sat in one and seen it without the camo and testing gear.

I don't see what all the bitching is about besides it being a Hyundai (there's the reason). The styling may not be for everyone, but it's not horrible...I can think of plenty of interiors that look far worse...like the Avalon, Camry, and so on.

I think most the "bitching" is in regards to the "layers of bulging lard" look that this and so many other interiors are emulating.

It has nothing to do with it being a Hyundai.

This interior is pretty nice. It does have some real issues and it isn't going to be class leading, but you have to remember that it wasn't too long ago that Hyundai was a solid generation or two behind GM, Toyota, Honda, Ford, and Chrysler in a lot of aspects, primarly styling; they are making up ground.

plastic...wood...plastic....I'm supposed to be liking it?? It has no flow in the shape and I'm sure the materials are VERY cheap.

Purely a styling commentary.

I was commenting only on the styling..... I obviously can't comment on the materials.... though Aurora materials were still pretty good.
