Genesis New York Concept Is A Hybrid Sports Sedan That Eyes BMW's 3-Series

| |

Featuring similar lines to the G90 and G80, the Genesis New York Concept previews a possible design direction for the production G70 that will take on the BMW 3-Series and other cars in the segment.

However, the South Korean automaker is not keen on revealing its future plans yet and it focuses on the exterior design of its newest study, described using words like "luxurious" and "modern", wrapped up in the "Athletic Elegance" design direction, previewed on the Vision G Concept.

Finished in a custom Ceramic Blue color, its overall shape is characterized by the long hood, prominent upright grille supported by horizontal headlamps, pronounced front fenders, short front overhangs, longer rear overhangs, low and sleek rear deck and slim elongated taillights.

Genesis states that the New York's cabin offers an advanced information control unit, with a distinctively curved display, a 21-inch floating, curved screen, made by LG, with a 4K display that incorporates driver instruments and multimedia functions, classic analog driver instruments and open steering wheel design.

The interior has been fully wrapped in leather, with accents of anthracite contrasted by rich tan leather on the doors and seats and sliced suede leather on the headrest. Copper accents and aluminum inlays have been also used inside, while the Human Machine Interface (HMI) concept "sets a new standard for user experience and function control".

Genesis didn't have much to say on the study's hybrid powertrain, except that it uses a 2.0 GDi engine, coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission, for a total system output of 242 HP (245 PS) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm).
