Genesis is on path to preview its design language going forward with the reveal of the Hybrid Sports Sedan New York Concept. The styling is synonymous with the Vision G concept, while the powertrain and interior receive further enhancements.

The front fascia displays a large mesh trapezoidal grille as the centerpiece bookended by a pair of aggressive LED headlights. The fenders bulge out of the sides to give it a sculpted wide body look and feature mesh vents that match the grille.

Leather and suede cover the interior, and the dashboard features a 21-inch LED display by LG.

Genesis says a direct-injected hybrid engine powers its concept, and that it sends power to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0-liter GDi hybrid engine puts out an estimated 241 horsepower and 260 lbs-ft of torque, which is roughly on par with mid size luxury options such as the Lexus GS 200t.

While some of the more extravagant features are unlikely to make it into production, many of the design elements are likely to show up in the upcoming G70 and G80 models.

The Genesis model lineup will increase at a quick pace in the next few years with the introduction of six models by 2021.

    Ridiculous concept cars.

    Looks vaguely similar to Infiniti's Q90 concept. Not a bad thing. I think Genesis brand was a smart move. I don't think they're after a 3 series, More C-Class or E-Class in my opinion. As far as crossovers go...give it time. I'm sure they'll have a version of the Santa Fe all dressed up, eventually.

      All of the Genesis models, including the 2 crossovers, will be RWD.

  • Bill Wade Norm, while true I'll leave you with this. My 2023 RAM is running Android 8 released in 2017.My wife's navigation on her GM truck is a 2021 release, I believe the latest. Android Auto seems to update very week or two. Now, which would you rather have? Anybody with a car a couple of years old NEVER sees any updates. Heck, if your TV is a few years old it's dead on updates. At least cell phones are rapidly updated. If your old phone won't update, buy another $200 phone. If your GM vehicle doesn't update do what, buy another $50,000 GM vehicle?
  • Lou_BC Once again, Mustang is the last pony car standing. Camaro RIP, Challenger RIP.
  • FreedMike Next up should DEFINITELY be the Cadillac Eldorado. On the subject of Caddies, I saw a Lyriq in person for the first time a couple of days ago, and I'm changing my tune on its' styling. In person, it works quite well, and the interior is very nicely executed.
  • Probert Sorry to disappoint: https://robbreport.com/motors/cars/tesla-model-y-worlds-best-selling-vehicle-1234848318/and any list. of articles with a 1 second google search. It's a tough world out there - but you can do it!!!!!!
  • ToolGuy "We're marking the anniversary of the time Robert Farago started the GM death watch and called for the company to die."• No, we aren't. Robert Farago wrote that in April 2005. It was reposted in 2009 on the eve of the actual bankruptcy filing.The byline dates are sometimes strange/off with the site revisions (and the 'this is a repost' note got lost), but the date string in the link is correct (...2005/04...). Posting about GM bankruptcy in 2005 was a slightly more difficult call than doing it in 2009.-- The Truth About Calendars
