Next-generation Hyundai Genesis to get all-wheel-drive

2012 Hyundai Genesis

For the 2012 model year, the Hyundai Genesis received a bunch of nice upgrades including a new Tau 5.0L V8 engine making 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. Now all we need from Hyundai’s luxury car is all-wheel-drive? Well, we won’t get it… at least not until the second-generation of the car, which is due for the 2014 model year.

The Hyundai Genesis model has done wonder for the Korean automaker, helping in stealing customers from competing brands as well as non-competing luxury brands like BMW 5-Series owners. All-wheel-drive should allow for a bigger boost in convincing Snow Belt state drivers to get behind the Hyundai Genesis.

Hyundai’s CEO John Krafcik has previously hinted that the Genesis coupe and the Equus will also offer all-wheel-drive in their next-generation models.
