The new saloon will get the new Hyundai’s design philosophy seen in the company’s new cars. However, the exact details on the changes given to the design are yet to be revealed. It is speculated that the front profile of the car resembles the Genesis. The front fascia of the car gets hexagonal shaped chrome grille flanked by leaner head-lamps with daytime running lights. It is likely to get modified front and rear bumpers and slightly tweaked LED tail-lights. The vehicle is also reportedly get big changes to all exterior panels including the doors and rear fenders.
