Lotta great Merc design language there. Stunner. Hope the powerplant matches the drapes.

I like the rear and I like the interior, I just cant get behind the front(headlights and bumper).

And please pair the 3.3T with the 6spd instead of the 2.0T

Hyundai must be driving MB crazy lifting so many of their design cues. This is arguably more handsome than a lot of Benz products. I'm not 100% sold on the split lights but I imagine they will look better in person.

Urrrrrghhhh not a fan at all. The grille is terrible and the lights are too wannabee mercedes. A clear step back from the handsome current model.

I don't love any of the new Genesis exterior designs (the split headlights/taillights won't age well imo). It makes sense though, now their entire lineup at least cohesive. That being said, I think this looks better than the pre-refresh, and the interior especially with the larger screen.

The front looks so different with the new headlights and spade-shaped grill design that I’m thinking it should’ve been reserved for the next gen g70.

Looks great though. Exterior design dumps on the current 3 series

6 speed is dropped. Looks like they are upgrading to the 3.5T also.

Not bad. I think the design language better fits the newer cars like the GV80 and G80 which are designed with the "signature brand design cues" in mind, compared to this which was originally designed before they had any design cues. Excited to see the future of Genesis, but Hyundai please fight your dealers on separating the brands completely.

If you're going to steal, this is how you do it. Picking up baby S class Coupé vibes in the front.

This looks sharp, even though some of the styling cues may be "borrowed", or as they say in the watch world, a hommage to MB.

Either way, Lexus and Infiniti should be concerned as this vehicle is a way better option overall than the IS/Q50, etc.

I really like their new designs, it really stands out from where they were just 2 years ago. Look forward to seeing them in person.

With modern LED headlights there's no need for these huge greenhouse type headlights anymore. The Hyundai group seems to have caught on to that and are making smaller slit style lights in almost all of their models. That's one thing they seem to be innovating at least.

The previous generation seemed to look better in person than on screen. Hope that's the case with this one too, it already looks better than the previous model.

Also, hoping the interior quality steps up a wee bit too. That was one thing that looked better than it actually was.
