    With its design frozen last year in 2011, prototypes of the next-generation Hyundai Genesis, codenamed "DH", have been spotted testing last week in South Korea. It's expected to debut next year as a 2014 model and will offer AWD for the first time. Some of the photos below date back to November 18.

    This might be a really good looking car, kinda like a bigger Azera but better looking.

    I think they have to worry too much based on looks, because once you ride in or drive an Azera, Genesis, or Eqqus you will see that they don't drive like luxury cars nor are they built like German cars. The Genesis in particular is a mess of a drive and none of them ride like a luxury car should or feel expensive. They drive and feel like very nice Sonatas.

    Hyundais, they've came so far into the game! Extremely impressed

    Just to give you guys an idea:

    November 2012 - Total Light Vehicle Sales in Canada

    ...... .................2012 .........Last year: Nov 2011 ...........Year-to-date
    Hyundai: ...........10,101................ 11,112 ............................128,420
    Honda: .............10,877.................. 8,417 ............................120,153
    BMW: ................2,520 ..................3,003
    Volkswagen: .......4,659 ..................4,015

    In addition, Hyundai's year to date market share is 8.2% of all of Canada, Honda representing 7.7%. Hyundai is ultimately 5th place in our market.

    Yet another Sedan with that insanely generic greenhouse that is interchangeable with about EVERY other Sedan that isn't a Mercedes, BMW or BMW copycat.

    I hate that look with the big quarter window cut into the C Pillar and fat plastic frame taking up the cutline area between the door and C-pillar quarter window. Audi wannabe look but now taken by so many generic ho-hum family Sedans, it looks like everything from the new Toyota Avalon, every other Ford Sedan (Fusion and Focus to name a couple), Cadillac, Chevy Impala (who had this look far before anyone else), etc.

    You're so right. We all might be driving big Korean luxury cars in another 10 years or so. Look at how far forward the front wheels are from the front doors, looks like a 7er in that regard. They absolutely nailed the proportions in that regard. I just hope they've baked in some real luxury car feel and character. It needs to feel expensive and be quiet, refined and hushed, but grippy and sporty if you know what I mean. Can't wait to see this one.

    I just hope Hyundai USA starts bring the same Korean spec'd Genesis to the US. The current US-bound Genesis doesn't have any of the features Korean (or Middle Easter) spec'd Genesis. No sport/comfort option for the suspension, no height control, no front cameras, no LED headlights. All those options and more are missing in the US Genesis.

    Why can't we have these LED headlights here?
