Hyundai entered the market of luxurious vehicles a while ago. Their debut wasn’t very successful since it seemed they just copied Lexus and attached their badge at front. However, Hyundai was putting a lot of effort in designing unique concepts. Their first solution, the 2013 HCD-14, didn’t get many good reviews hence they focused on some other concepts. It didn’t meet the expectations thus they had to try harder. With new 2017 Genesis Vision G, it seems they are on the right track. It’s one of the greatest concepts developed by Hyundai.
2017 Genesis Vision G Concept
New 2017 Genesis Vision G concept is unique, luxurious and luckily quite different than the 2013 HCD-14. It has some drawbacks but bears in mind that no car is flawless. In general, the design looks amazing and is a good foundation for future works. According to several experts, this concept might be too expensive. However, their opinion is entirely subjective and we need to wait for the release to see how much it will cost. Although information about this concept is scarce, we would like to be one of the first to present it.
Under the Hood
If you are expecting a twelve-cylinder we must let you down. According to the first reviews, V-12 should be expected. It would be nice to see such engine under the hood of the 2017 Genesis Vision G, but we must be realistic and state the fact that Hyundai has to put enormous effort in order to develop such engine. Instead of V-12, there is a better chance to see an eight-cylinder. A 5.0-liter Tau eight-cylinder is used in Genesis and will be under the hood of the new Equus thus we might expect it will power up this concept as well.
The 5.0-liter is able to deliver 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque which should be enough for Genesis Vision G to develop a decent speed. Many believe maximum speed won’t exceed 155 mph while the acceleration is going to be around 5 seconds. These are just estimations hence don’t take them to the bank. Some experts expect a twin-turbocharged Tau unit, but we’ll see whether their expectations are going to come true. When it comes to fuel economy there is absolutely no data about it. Since fuel efficiency is one of the most important aspects it would be better for Hyundai to publish the expected fuel consumption.
Thankfully new Genesis Vision G 2017 won’t resemble any other car. Some people compare it to 2016 Bentley Continental GT, but similarities are quite subtle. At the first sight, it is obvious that Vision G has much more space than the Continental GT. Generally, it is a great combination of modern and classic features. Some of the classical features are a long hood that was a symbol of the 60s. However, the rear part seems a little empty and it would be nice to see more sharp lines there.
