Hyundai debut Genesis in Europe


Hyundai is to launch the Genesis saloon model in Europe.

Limited numbers of the single specification luxury model will be sold in Europe, all fitted with a 3.8-litre V6 GDI engine, paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

New features available on the car include Smart Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Braking and the world’s first CO2 cabin sensor to monitor the cabin’s environment and protect the driver from the dangers of drowsiness.

Allan Rushforth, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Hyundai Motor Europe, said: “All-new Genesis offers a unique premium ownership experience that demonstrates the true breadth of our engineering and technological capabilities. There are a number of world and Hyundai-first technologies applied to this car, making it a true showcase of what we can achieve, and continuing Hyundai’s legacy of delivering value beyond expectations across a broadening number and variety of high-quality cars.”

The cars will be built at Hyundai's Ulsan plant in South Korea.
