Fwd?

I know it has available AWD, no mention of the driven wheels... safe to assume front?

They said it would have Hyundai's "HTRAC AWD system". Not really familiar with that, I did a quick search and found this on MotorTrend.com:

Introducing Hyundai?s HTRAC All-Wheel Drive System

This article explains how they have implemented it on the Genesis. I am assuming it would be pretty close to this on the SC.

It is FWD with available AWD. With the HTRAC AWD system the vehicle will stay mostly in FWD until it detects slippage.

I think it's possible they might offer it standard with FWD, it would help with setting a lower price and maybe open them up to a wider crowd.

Yes, that's what I meant. AWD will not be standard - just like the Tucson.

Yeah, don't see them changing that, makes perfect sense to offer it in the same configurations, price difference between the two shouldn't be too far off from what it is like with the Tuscon.

I wonder how quickly the hybrid electric AWD HTRAC system will find its way into vehicles. The FWD drivetrain stays the same and an electric motor drives the rear.

that's a tough one, not sure at all what the timeline could be like for Hyundai to finally use it in something like this or in a segment on a level like this is.

So there's only auto all-wheel drive? What about manual 4-wheel drive when driving on the beach? Or can you manually engage the 4 wheel or all-wheel drive system?

AWD vehicles are usually fully automatic. With the HTRAC system in the Genesis you can choose different modes (Normal, Sport, Eco and Snow). I'm sure if they wanted to they could provide different options for snow, sand, etc. It would still be fully automated though.

Jeep does something similar:
