New 2017 Hyundai Genesis – Release Date, Specs & Info

We are getting ready to receive a new 2017 Hyundai Genesis model which is scheduled to come out by the end of the year. The Korean automaker has made a name for itself as being able to produce cheap yet quality vehicle, and among the many they have produced the Genesis and the 2017 Hyundai Equus model stand out. The Genesis is the first one which is getting an update and which will be offered first to us in the later part of this year.

The Korean automaker has for a while been testing its luxury segment and has finally decided to enter it once again with the Genesis being its first draft pick and the lottery ticket to get in a big way here. The segment will most certainly benefit from it and Hyundai has been shaping its car in a great manner.

The model is going to aim at the same segment that Infiniti Q80 and Lexus RX models are already familiar with, so it seems that it is hard to get into contention immediately. But we actually see the 2017 Hyundai Genesis as being able to pull this out very quickly as it is a fair vehicle. The model is going to be labeled as G90 in North America  while the Korean crowd may know it as Genesis EQ900.

They are already shaping this model as being the flagship of its brand and as it has already been released in Korea last December, we are waiting for its debut at the Detroit Auto Show this year. This is going to be the introduction to the North American market but the actual release date comes a little bit later.

Exterior

For the exterior of the 2017 Hyundai Genesis, the manufacturers are introducing a type of a style called “Athletic Elegance.”This is all thanks to the newly-founded Prestige Design Division which plans to expand its design to other brands in the Hyundai lineup. This makes the 2017 Genesis very athletic looking and sporty, which is a far cry from the Equus model. In a sense it is perhaps too sporty for a vehicle this size. The front end has a new crisp Genesis grille which adds daytime running lights used form before, but everything else is actually new.

The LED head lights are set to extend into the fenders as they combine well with the chrome inserts and the muscular bumper which has a wing-type badge placed above the grille. The hood has the Genesis lines that the previous car had and it all combines well with the entire setup of the car. The profile is pretty interesting as it has tall shoulder lines, large wheels, muscular rear haunches and a large glass area for the rear doors. All of this makes the car as big as a Bentley but keeps the Hyundai Genesis 2017 as sporty and elegant as it needs to be.

Interior

The interior of the 2017 Hyundai Genesis has a similar style as the outside of the car does. It manages to combine luxury and style in a great sense and brings us many new details that this model adopts. The cabin has updated materials, an overall redesigned cabin, an elegant color palette and some human-centered ergonomics. The cabin is actually much more modern and not just compared to other vehicle in the Hyundai lineup but also compared to the Mercedes Benz S-Class in some ways. Thus the inside combines Italian and Nappa leather, contrast stitching,  real wood trim,  and some polished aluminum inserts. Generally speaking, the cabin is plush and entertaining and feels like a very suitable place to spend your time in.

The seats include a  22-way power adjustment for the driver and 4-way setting for the passengers ones. The seats also have a Smart Posture Caring system which helps you align the head-up display, steering wheel, position of the seats, even the side mirrors and get an optimal position for you and your driving. A 12.3-inch touchscreen is just the start of the high-end tech system that is added here and also adds a 360-degree monitor  and a new parking camera as well. This is possible the most advanced vehicle when it comes to technology which you will be able to appreciate even more once the release date passes.

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, Electric, and Plug-In Hybrid were all unveiled during the recently concluded 2016 New York international Auto Show. Hyundai goes down in history as the only single brand to offer three distinct electrified drivetrains on a dedicated, line vehicle platform. For 2017, Hyundai furthers its assault on rivals by offering latest features in terms of convenience, and safety features coupled with an uncompromising level of enjoyable driving quality. This review covers most of what you need to know about the newest Hyundai Ioniq including its expected release date, and cost.

Additionally, it goes a long way in meeting the needs of a growing group of clientele that is hungry for a low-emissions and highly-efficient vehicle without necessarily compromising on important areas of their daily lifestyles’ said Mike O’Brien, vice president of Product and Corporate Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “There’s no doubt that the new model will attract and retain a new group of efficiency- and eco-centric buyers in the U.S market.”

Connectivity on the Hyundai Ioniq has been taken a notch higher through the various systems that are not only faster in their response, but also state-of-the-art designs. There’s wireless charging for smartphones as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Centrally placed on the instrument panel is a seven-inch TFT instrument cluster that displays important driver information. Also, a slew of driver-assistance systems are available. They include lane-departure warning, rear-cross traffic alert, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, smart cruise control, and blind-spot detection. All these are specifically meant to offer high levels of safety for both active and passive vehicle safety.

The exterior comes with plenty of aerodynamic features that help it gain a class-leading 0.24 Cd thanks in part to the sleek, design forms. The aerodynamic silhouette is further emphasized by the fluid exterior shape and smooth air flow channels. In Hyundai quest to achieve a unique and futuristic appearance, two key factors were integrated: technology and efficiency, in its design. The result is a seamless combination of form and function that manages to offer the Ioniq a distinct exterior character.

Once available for sale, both the Honda Insight and the 2017 Toyota Prius will arguably be solid rivals hot on its heels.

2017 Hyundai Ioniq Release Date & Price

Hyundai hasn’t offered us the details about these two crucial elements. It is however hopes that its release date will probably be sometime in March 2017. If you’re already sold out on prudence, you can go ahead and place an order anytime this year. As for the Ioniq price, expect to pay an MSRP starting from around $24,000.

The exterior design is futuristic to the tiniest tidbit. Surface volumes and aerodynamic body lines have been emphasized by the natural air flow channels and fluid exterior shape. The soft lines and surfaces complement the sporty, hatchback-like profile that help drop its coefficient of drag to a class-leading 0.24. Furthermore, the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, and the Hyundai Ioniq Electric all come with distinct exterior profiles.

From the handful of exterior photos in our possession, it is evident that the Hyundai Hybrid combines the purposeful designs of both the Honda Insight and the Toyota Prius.

2017 Hyundai Ioniq Interior

The interior compares similarly to the rendering’s instrument cluster, center stack arrangement, bright blue inserts, and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. There’s no cluttering on the center stack and the design in its totality is attractive. As already mentioned before, the infotainment system is provided by a 7-inch TFT screen that integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity features to enable occupants connect to navigation, telephone, and audio functions.

There’s greater passenger and driver convenience. Space and flexibility is greatly emphasized thanks to cleverly packaged Hybrid components. Believe it or not, the Ioniq Hybrid achieves the best-in-class cargo space thanks to the battery positioning below the aft bench.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Release Date, News & Info

Although the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe tends to get as much attention as other three-row crossover SUVs, it offers a striking blend of style, comfort, and power. Also, the fact that it offers a sensible MSRP relative to the rest of the competition might tip your decision in its favor. Get more details on its exterior and interior design, engine specs, and release date, below.

It might be an obvious choice for consumers shopping for a three-row crossover but the segment is fast changing and newer models are proving to be more preferred especially when a seasoned model like the Santa Fe hasn’t had any significant overhaul recently. This might be true in some respects as nothing much has changed over the previous model.

Nevertheless, there are ample reasons why you should consider getting one for yourself especially if you’re looking for utility. Nowadays, the parameters seem to revolve around passenger capacity, towing capacity, cargo volume, power, and interior luxury and comfort. Out of all of these benchmarks, the only disappointing thing you’ll get whilst nitpicking is the less cargo volume offered relative to the rest of the competition.

Apart from that, the new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe seems to have mastered everything else. Thanks to the simple and easy-to-use controls, rich materials, and an attractive cabin, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe’s cabin has a pleasant ambience. Even if you find smartphone apps a bewilderment, those on the Santa Fe touchscreen interface are simple and user-friendly and will certainly bring you up to speed to the tech-savvy generation world.

Below its skin is a desirable V6 engine that, despite lacking any updates whatsoever, offers an impressive towing capacity, laudable acceleration, and potent power. However, you might find newer models to be better in terms of precision and ride quality, refinement and composure. But if your priority is based on ease of driving, the Hyundai Santa Fe is probably the best you can get.

Rivals available include the 2017 Toyota Highlander – this “A” rated crossover SUV is perhaps the best vehicle you can find in the segment if you want everything bundled in one place. Others include the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse, and the 2017 Honda Pilot.
