The New York Concept aims at defining the styling direction for the whole premium brand, which already includes the G80 and G90 models. The powertrain is a 2.0 GDi 245ps hybrid with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The exterior proportions is characterized by a long hood and large dash-to-axle ratio, and a contrast between short front overhangs and longer rear overhangs: all these elements underline the car’s performance-oriented nature and athletic stance.
The front-end features an upright grille visually supported by sleek, horizontal headlamps. The deep inner edge of the lamp is characterized by a pixelated light guide.
Air flow guides sit below the lamps, channeling air through the forward wheel housing. Pronounced front fender volumes, enhanced with longitudinal crease lines, complete the concept’s road-focused attitude.
From the side, the sleek and tapered cabin emphasizes powerful shoulders, bringing visual power over the rear wheels and quarter panels.
The rear end features a low and sleek rear deck, further enhanced by strongly tapered body flanks. The slim, elongated tail-lamps echo the headlamps design.
Among the distinctive styling elements are the unique treatment of the engine hood and the original side vents, which feature a hexagonal pattern echoing the front grille graphic theme.
The front and rear door handles sit flush with the bodywork, integrated along the belt line of further enhancing aerodynamic performance with simplicity in design.
The exterior panels are finished in a custom-designed Ceramic Blue color, with copper-colored inlays in the lower bumper fascia and sills.
The interior of the New York Concept further projects the future design direction of GENESIS. It expresses a high-tech and sophisticated ambience, emphasized by the use of an advanced information control unit with a distinctively curved display.
Eliminating some of the negatives often associated with increased technological content in a luxury vehicle, the design team took an innovative direction for the instrument panel design.
A 21-inch floating, curved screen incorporates driver instruments and multimedia functions, creating potential for new, sculpted forms for the front seat occupants.
The digital display is combined with classic analog driver instruments. The concave screen and the convex instrument panel complement each other in an aesthetic interaction while transmitting visual lightness to the interior.
The open steering wheel design is ergonomically formed to facilitate visibility of the instruments while enhancing handling control.
A logical and spacious center console divides the interior space through its length axis into two separate halves. Combined with the curved, floating screen, the Central Control Panel (CCP) creates a new user experience through a tactile and considered control lay-out.
Concept aluminum inlays for the interior incorporate a handful of essential functional switches.
Colors and materials
The concept’s interior showcases full leather interior, with accents of anthracite contrasted with rich tan leather on seats and doors, while sliced suede leather used on the headrest brings a soft tactile accent.
Copper-toned, stainless-steel mesh echoes the copper accents of the exterior and demonstrates a new, lightweight textile approach.
