Good news for those of you who were looking for the new generation of the Hyundai Genesis as the company has officially announced that the model will hit the market with an optional all-wheel drive system. The HTRAC, or the Hyundai Traction, is an advanced all-wheel drive system which, according to the car manufacturer, it can control torque split between the two axles, depending on the road conditions and on driving.

“Hyundai Motor’s HTRAC system has secured best-in-class durability and driving performance through strict tests carried out in various locations worldwide, including the famed Nürburgring in Germany, the Yeongam F1 circuit in Korea and in severe winter tests in Europe”, said the Hyundai Motor Group’s R&D Center vice chairman and head, Woong-Chul Yang.

The new generation of the Hyundai Genesis, with its HTRAC all-wheel drive system, will become available with several driving modes and the final production version of the car is expected to be officially unveiled at the end of 2013, in the company’s home market, South Korea. Additional details on the model are limited for the moment and will be announced close to its launch.
