  • 2015 Hyundai Genesis teased in new images
  • Images reveal new, sculpted look with coupelike profile
  • Latest Genesis to debut at next year's Detroit Auto Show

Hyundai has revealed the first images of its redesigned 2015 Genesis sedan. The teaser images, which provide a good look at the luxury car, come before the second-generation Genesis model's debut early next year at the Detroit Auto Show.

From the images, it's clear that the next Genesis will use a more sweeping, futuristic look than the current model. That's a look used on most current Hyundai products, including the midsize Sonata and full-size Azera sedans.

In addition to its general appearance, the Genesis offers a more luxurious look. That's clear in the strong character line down the side of the car, a coupelike profile, narrow taillights and a bulging front grille -- all hallmarks of many top luxury cars.

Unfortunately, Hyundai has not yet revealed whether these upscale cues continue inside the car, but we think it's safe to say that they do. That's because the latest Genesis sedan will likely improve on the current model, which is often celebrated for its excellent fit, finish and high-end materials. As for technology, expect a lot, such as a center-mounted touchscreen with Hyundai's latest BlueLink system and maybe even a head-up display.

Beyond the upscale styling, we have high hopes for the new Genesis. Hyundai says all-wheel drive will be available, as will an electronic suspension system designed to enable greater stability in corners. And Hyundai's new rack-mounted Motor Driven Electric Power Steering system should give sport-obsessed shoppers a better steering feel.

Other details about the next Genesis are mostly unknown. We expect that base models will retain the current Genesis model's rear-drive architecture, but we're not sure if the new Genesis will keep today's V6 and V8 powerplants. We're also not sure what direction Hyundai will take with the Genesis Coupe, which currently uses the same chassis as the sedan.

But for shoppers interested in the high-end Hyundai, we can offer some advice: Stay tuned. We'll have more information as we get closer to January's Detroit Auto Show.

What it means to you: The 2015 Hyundai Genesis looks like a serious competitor, just like today's model.
