Sources say Hyundai’s much-anticipated answer to the BMW 3 series and other compact RWD sports sedans should arrive in 2016, though precise timing is unclear. 

The rear-wheel-drive compact sedan, known inside Hyundai by the code-name RK, should be slightly larger than the BMW 3 series and share design cues and driving characteristics with the Genesis Coupe.

Sources say the stylish HCD-14 concept seen at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show is the basis for RK’s overall design. That should mean it will have a dramatic fastback roofline, short front and rear overhangs and a bold front end. Powertrain details are scarce, but it would make sense for the sedan to be powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder T-GDi engine, likely the 2.0-liter used in the Genesis Coupe or the 3.3-liter V6 used in the Azera.
