Seems Hyundai has given up on keeping prying eyes away from its all-new Genesis sedan, with new spy photos this week revealing the big new model without a shred of camouflage.
These latest shots follow a pair of 'teaser' renderings released last month, which revealed the first official look at the new sedan.
The new Genesis is expected to make its global premiere at January's Detroit Auto Show, where it will also debut Hyundai's HTRAC (Hyundai TRACtion) all-wheel-drive system.
The Genesis will be the first model to feature HTRAC, although the carmaker has confirmed it will offer the new system in other models over the coming years.
Hyundai has yet to reveal full details for the new system, confirming only that it will offer selectable driving modes "for a sophisticated and tailored driving experience".
The current Genesis is offered in rear-wheel-drive only, but is expected that the new model will be offered in both RWD and AWD form, depending on market and trim grade.
Engine details are still to be confirmed, but the existing 250kW 3.8 litre V6 and 320kW 5.0 litre V8 options are expected to continue.
Hyundai has confirmed the Genesis sedan will be build in right-hand-drive, and the carmaker's local arm said today that an Australian debut is under consideration.
That news follows confirmation earlier this year the new Genesis Coupe will be offered in Australia, although exact details won't come until after the new model's international unveiling next year.
An official unveiling of the production Genesis sedan is expected in January, before going on sale in early 2014 - six years after the original Genesis’ debut.
