Genesis New York Concept Teaser

What is Genesis Teasing Here?

The newly formed Genesis brand has something special they are planning to show next week at the New York Auto Show.

Today, the luxury arm of Hyundai released a teaser shot of the 'New York Concept'. This sports sedan hints at the 'Athletic Elegance' design language that will be appearing on future models.

“The New York Concept is a progressive concept car that showcases the design quality of the brand. With its expressive volumes and refined design, the New York Concept truly embodies the athletic elegance, which characterizes Genesis products,” said Manfred Fitzgerald, head of Genesis in a statement.

This concept has to be previewing something.

It is. As we briefly mentioned in a story talking about Hyundai's N Performance division back in January, Genesis is working on a compact luxury sedan named the G70. It will use a new rear-wheel drive platform exclusive to Genesis and likely have a range of turbocharged four and six-cylinder engines.

We don't know when we'll see a production version of the G70, but we're sure it will be before 2020.
