It's not really as much to keep the screen closer to the driver as much as your 2nd point. This way, the majority of the dash cowl height is kept low, increasing overall visibility and feeling of...

Hyundai didn't go all out sporty in the Genesis in this generation, it was focused more on refinement, but it's still no slouch.

Odd naming conventions in my opinion. I know it is more tied to engine size... but with R1 at the top and R6 below, would almost think R3 is some sort of step between the R6 and R1. But the R3 is...

I think it's fine, new package to bring some visual pop with new alloy wheel design, and a way to get HID's without popping for the "Limited" trim.
