There’s a lot to like about the new Hyundai Genesis sedan, but did you know British automaker Lotus helped tune its chassis and suspension?

Looking to blend performance and luxury in a nicely packaged sedan, Hyundai turned to the experts at Lotus and the world famous Nurburgring to “strike the ideal balance of control, confidence and comfort,” for its all-new Genesis. Also evaluated on the Nurburgring is the Korean automaker’s HTRAC all-wheel drive, which is available on the 3.8-liter model only.
