While we gave you a pretty good idea of what to expect from the new generation 2014 (possibly 2015MY in N.A.) Hyundai Genesis saloon with our rendering made by Josh Byrnes earlier this year, it’s time to show you the actual, real-life version of the car that was spied without a single trace of camouflage in its home market of South Korea.
This is likely the South Korean domestic market version of the new Genesis, but as with the current model, we don’t expect any notable changes on the North American edition of the car that has been confirmed for a world premiere at the next Detroit Motor Show in January 2014.
As you can see for yourselves, Hyundai has stepped up its efforts in the design department offering the new Genesis sedan a more distinct and edgier look with styling cues previewed by the 2013 Detroit auto show HCD-14 Concept.
As far as other details are concerned, we’ve learned that besides the regular rear-wheel drive editions, for the first time, the new Genesis sedan will offer the option of all-wheel drive. Hyundai is likely to continue to offer the 3.8-liter V-6 Lambda and 5.0-liter V-8 Tau engines, possibly tweaked to deliver more power and better fuel economy. A diesel and a hybrid have been rumored, but not officially confirmed.

Update I: The person featured next to the car requested that we remove his image as well as his reflection on the vehicle, hence the pixelated parts on the car.
Update II: We discovered a second picture of the new Genesis, this time, revealing its profile lines.
