The victory for all-new Genesis underscores Hyundai's global policy of building the right cars for the right regions. The exterior design shows an evolved interpretation of the fluidic sculpture design philosophy; a long wheelbase and short overhangs emphasise sleek lines and the natural balance of the car.
As well as a car that combines award-winning design with high levels of driving security, comfort and safety, customers will enjoy an exclusive purchase experience that reflects the Genesis's unique qualities.
The jury awarded the sought-after prize to Hyundai's luxury sedan model following a rigorous judging process.
Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer at Hyundai Motor Company, commented: "Recognition from the iF jury is further evidence of the transformation in Hyundai design in recent years. My vision for the brand is to create more connections with our customers. Design is the ultimate expression of a brand and its values, it establishes the connection. All-new Genesis, which takes the evolved design of Hyundai models and shows how it can translate across segments, is already connecting to Europeans on an emotional level."
The winners of the 61st edition of the annual awards are assessed by an international jury of experts. Organised by International Forum Design GmbH (iF), the awards set out to recognise outstanding design across three categories: product, packaging and communications.Hyundai announces i30 Fastback
