Nicely done Hyundai! LOVE the steering wheel!

The overall looks is great; very Bentley

I think I hate pretty much every single thing about this. Well, the gauge cluster is nice. But everything else looks like some dated, bloated crossover concept from 1992.

Ohmigod, how funny. I was thinking the exact same thing (although perhaps more late 1990s). The tailights and headlights are particularly dated.

The steering wheel looks a lot like the one MB used in the R-Class.

l like the overall shape and the headlights but agreed that most of the detailing looks 1990s for some reason. Either way, Genesis could use some controversial styling to become less anonymous.

This a very handsome concept and is timeless rather than trendy looking.

Hope this doesn't mean genesis cars will be G# and suvs will be GV#. GV is terrible.

Does Genesis not recall the Yugo GV and the iconic road machine it was? How could they step on that automotive legend? Perhaps Zastava should sue Genesis.

Name or not they need to bring this into production in some way shape or form without compromising the look too much.

I think it's neither very ugly, but also not specially handsome or modern. It does however not share a single design cue with any current Genesis car (but to be fair, neither go the G80 or G90, and the small sedan does seem to look different too from spy shots).

Whilst most of it looks anonymous, the grille looks like a vulgar fake Bentley unit, something people buy from E-Bay to glue on their fake Bentley build.

However, given Hyundai's track record of productionizing concept cars (tehy usually done#t share much if anything with the cocnpet) I wonder what the real deal will look like. Ideally it would take the comparably well done proportions and shape of the DLO, and give it proper lights and a less tacky grille. Unfortunately I fear we will end up with something way more traditional but iwth the tacky grille glued to it....
