More pictures of the production version of Hyundaiâ€™s RWD Genesis luxury sedan have come to light. The Genesis concept had some obvious BMW styling cues, particularly in the rear and the production version seems to have taken this a step further. Looking very much like a cross between BMW's 5 and 7-Series, even down to the alloys from a distance, its not hard to guess that Hyundai have the Germans in their sights.
Unlike the BMW medium and large sedans, the Genesis will not cost an arm and a leg when it goes on sale in North America in 2008. Prices are expected to start well under $US30,000 which will see the Genesis come in under the pricing of the Aussie supplied Pontiac G8 GT and around the price of a 3-Series bimmer.
This is going to be one interesting car to watch as it presents â€“ on paper at least â€“ the full package. A modern 4.6-litre V8, RWD and plenty of luxury, its just a pity that the Genesis is not earmarked for Australia.
