Hyundai recently revealed the “Vision G” Concept Coupe to a select group of media at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

The concept was described as Hyundai’s inspiration for its family of future premium products that promise luxury, performance and style with the value and responsibility that is the foundation of Hyundai’s brand.

During the design process, Hyundai’s team of designers centered their work on the notion of “chivalry” – a word they felt best defined the idea that one doesn’t need to shout to be noticed and respected. Hyundai Vision G 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 underlying idea of respectful luxury flows into the interior, underscored by its clarity and simplicity. No glaring examples of luxury, but rather elegant lines and finishes.

The heart of “Vision G” is the award-winning 5.0-liter Tau V8 engine producing 420 hp and 383 lb/ft of torque. The Tau V8 engine family has been named to Ward’s prestigious Ten Best Engines list three times.

With high-pressure direct injection for impressive power, low emissions and superb efficiency, this latest version of the Tau V8 benefits from an optimized intake runner length, enhanced timing chain for reduced friction and NVH, low-torque exhaust manifold, increased compression ratio and upgraded multiple-injection mapping.

These enhancements combine to produce a flatter torque curve at lower rpm for even better driveability.
