BURGEONING South Korean luxury car brand Genesis has issued a teaser image and
video offering glimpses of a sports sedan concept it will reveal at the New
York motor show this week, possibly previewing an upcoming BMW 3 Series fighter.

purposeful stance and distinctive low-profile, three-dimensional effect LED
headlights either side of the familiar trapezoidal Genesis grille.

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, which characterises Genesis products,” he said.
