Hyundai already has the Genesis Sedan that was bench-marked against the BMW 5-Series and Audi A6, and the S-Class combating Equus, so the logical next step is to introduce something roughly analogous to the BMW 3-Series. Apparently, Hyundai is a closet German company. 

The new car will be based on the Genesis Coupe's able platform and will be available by 2015 at the earliest.
