Hyundai hit the 2016 New York Auto Show with a concept car named after the magnificent city. The Hyundai Genesis New York Concept is a luxury sports sedan that shows where the Genesis brand is headed with its future production models.

That means what you see here is pretty much what the next Genesis sedan and the Genesis Coupe will look like. The concept’s powertrain – a 2.0 GDi powertrain coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission – also hints at the kind of performance Hyundai is gunning for with those models. Hyundai Genesis New York Concept boasts 245 PS and 36.0 kgf.m of torque.

But it’s mostly about the design and the ‘Athletic Elegance’ of it with Hyundai Genesis New York Concept. The manufacturer is particularly proud of the car’s well-balanced proportions and refined surface treatments inspired by modern luxury lifestyles and products. Of course, the vehicle has many conceptual highlights, such as flush door handles, Ceramic Blue color with copper-color inlays, 3D gesture-control, 21-inch 4K floating, curved screen and Central Control Panel for all the functions. You can expect to see watered-down versions of some of these systems in future products, though.

Manfred Fitzgerald, Head of Genesis said: “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,’ that characterizes Genesis products and will continue to do so for future models that come from our luxury brand. Revealing the concept in New York is a fitting opportunity for Genesis.”
