Value Writeup

Hyundai has been gaining serious ground on its Japanese, American, and even European competition with the increased quality and styling of its cars. The Genesis is another big step in the right direction. With V6 or V8 power, a long list of standard luxury and safety features, a smooth, comfortable ride, and an excellent warranty, Hyundai has placed is well-priced luxury sedan squarely in the faces of sedans from Cadillac, Lexus, INFINITI, and BMW.


Pros

Eye-catching design; available V8 power; excellent standard features; great warranty; attractive pricetag


Model Highlights

The Hyundai Genesis is all-new for 2009, and the South Korean manufacturer has seized the opportunity to create a genuinely eye-catching, up-scale model.

Exterior styling blends all the best lines from all the best luxury sedans on the road today. The result is not so much derivative as it is quite attractive, and the well-proportioned car with its badgeless front grille is sure to turn heads.

The Genesis rides on an entirely new platform, with a front-engined, rear-wheel-drive setup sprung front and rear by 5-link suspension. Power comes from either a 3.8L V6 or a 4.6L V8. The V6 puts out a very respectable 290 hp and scoots the car to 60 mph in just over 6 seconds, while the flagship V8 delivers 368 hp and propels the Genesis to 60 mph in just under 6 seconds. Both engines feature continuously variable valve timing for increased efficiency, and both are mated to 6-speed automatics that offer Shiftronic manually controlled shifting. The V6 uses an Aisin-built gearbox, while the V8 employs one from ZF.

Outside, in addition to a body that offers a slippery .27 drag coefficient, you'll find power mirrors, halogen headlights, fog lights, tasteful chrome accents and either 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels.

As it is inside the cabin that owners will spend most of their time, Hyundai pulled out all the stops to create a luxurious environment loaded with creature comforts. Standard on the Genesis 3.8 are heated leather seats, leather steering wheel and shift lever, cruise control, dual-zone climate control with filtration, power windows, push-button start, a CD/XM/MP3 stereo, Bluetooth hands-free communication, and HomeLink, which can operate compatible garage doors, gates, and home lighting and security systems.

Stepping up to the Genesis 4.6, you'll find a power rear sunshade, upgraded leather surfaces, woodgrain accents, power tilt and telescopic steering, power sunroof, and integrated memory, which recalls specific driver settings for the seat, mirrors and steering wheel.

The Genesis offers plenty of options as either standalone or part of package, which add to its appeal. They include amenities like High-Intensity Discharge headlights and adaptive lighting, which turns with the front wheels, front and rear parking assist sensors, a 14- or 17-speaker 528-watt Lexicon stereo with in-dash CD or DVD changers, navigation, back-up camera, a cooled driver's seat, and more.

Standard safety features in both Genesis models include dual front airbags, front and rear side-impact airbags, and roof-mounted curtain side-impact airbags. Electronic stability and traction controls help to ensure composure, and 4-wheel ABS with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist work in harmony to halt the Genesis in a controlled hurry, if need be.


Model News

The Hyundai Genesis is a new model for 2009 and one that is a serious departure for Hyundai, which has been boosting the quality of its product for the last several years.

The Genesis is a "clean-sheet" car, and the result is a luxury triumph for Hyundai. With a 3.8L V6 delivering 290 hp, or a 4.6L V8 with 368 hp, either engine offers plenty of power for the road. The V6 returns 18/27 mpg city and highway, while the V8 shows 17/25 mpg.

Standard luxury features include leather interior with heated seats, alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, and Bluetooth hands-free communication, plus a host of standard safety features, which means you don't have to compromise luxury and power for a secure experience.

Available colors include Champagne Beige Metallic, Black Noir Pearl, Sapphire Blue Pearl, Cabernet Red Pearl, Sterling Blue Metallic, Titanium Gray Metallic, Platinum Metallic, and White Satin Pearl.

The Genesis 3.8 is priced at $32,250, while the Genesis 4.6 starts at $37,250.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the crui...

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Hyundai is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Genesis vehicles manufactured April 30, 2008, through March 28, 2012. The vehicles may contain brake fluid which does not protect against corrosion of the Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit (HECU).

Consequence

Hyundai will notify owners and instruct them to bring their vehicle to a dealer for service. Hyundai will inspect the HECU module for proper operation, and will replace the modules as necessary. Hyundai will replace the factory brake fluid in those vehicles that have not previously had the factory brake fluid replaced. These repairs will be done free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of December 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151 or by email at consumeraffairs@hmausa.com. Hyundai's recall number is 114.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
