First seen at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last August, the new Genesis HCD-16 Vision G Concept made its Canadian debut today at the 2016 Montreal Auto Show.

This car is purposefully understated, despite its size and dramatic lines. One example of this respectful luxury — and a nod to the self-sufficiency of the driver — is a technology that automatically opens the door as if being opened by a valet. The interior features premium wood and leather trim pieces in just the right amount and places. 

“In keeping with a design that speaks to the owner rather than ‘the spectators’ who might see the car on the road, Vision G appears dynamic and in constant motion,” said Christopher Chapman, head of Hyundai’s U.S. design centre and leader of the coupe’s design team. “After all, the only time an owner sees the exterior of the car is when it’s standing still.”

The Genesis HCD-16 Vision G Concept is motivated by a potent V8 engine that cranks out 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque.
