Hyundai developing a new compact sports sedan to take on Bmw 3-Series

Article by Christian A., on August 12, 2013

Sources confirmed the fact that Hyundai is finally developing an answer to the German compact sports sedans, such as the Bmw 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class or the Audi A4. Set to arrive somewhere in 2016, the new Hyundai rear-wheel-drive sedan, dubbed the RK, will be a little bit larger than the Bmw 3-Series, according to Automotive News and its design cues and characteristics will be borrowed from the Genesis Coupe.

Moreover, the new car will be inspired by the HCD-14 Concept, unveiled back in January at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, which means that we should prepare to see a dramatic fastback roofline, short front and rear overhangs, as well as bold front end.

Under the hood, we will find a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, such as the 2.0-liter used by the Genesis Coupe, but the bigger 3.3-liter V6 used by the Agera could also make its way in the new sedan.
