The Hyundai Genesis was introduced less than two years ago but the company is already working on a facelift for their upscale sedan.

Caught undergoing testing in California and Germany, the prototypes have a modestly revised front fascia and an updated grille. These are minor changes but the presence of an intercooler confirms the model will feature a turbocharged engine.  

Nothing is official but previous reports have suggested the car will use either a twin-turbo 3.3- or 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces approximately 420 bhp (313 kW). This is the same amount as the company's 5.0-liter V8 which has led to speculation that it will be dropped from the lineup.

Our spies also managed to snap some interior photos but the cabin appears to carryover untouched.  However, the model is still in the early stages of development so that could change by the time the production model arrives in a year or two.
