Lots of affordable luxury; elegant, understated styling; great handling and powerful V8; very competitive pricing
The Hyundai Genesis is a large luxury sedan that aims to compete with Lexus and Mercedes. As such, it features a strong, competitive standard equipment list, but it's offered at a fraction of the price.
There are two engines available: a 3.8L V6 and a 5.0L V8. The 3.8L produces 333 hp, while the 5.0L makes 429 hp. Both of the engines utilize continuously variable valve timing and four valves per cylinder, and both use direct injection to help achieve their horsepower figures. Both engines are also mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic manual shift mode for more control over the gear changes.
The Genesis' suspension consists of an independent 5-link setup that also includes stabilizer bars. The steering is speed-sensitive and the brakes are ventilated discs all around. Standard features include heated power mirrors, fog lamps, automatic headlamps and leather seats that are heated and 8-way power adjustable. Other features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a proximity entry system.
All Genesis sedans feature standard electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, advanced dual front airbags, front and rear side-curtain airbags and tire-pressure monitoring. Sedans also have and rear side-impact airbags, and the 5.0 R-spec adds standard traction control. The 5.0 R-spec features special performance tires on 19-inch wheels, high-flow exhaust and special R-spec design touches to its exterior.
Inside, the 3.8 includes dual-zone climate control, XM radio and steering-wheel mounted audio controls. The 5.0 R-spec adds power sunroof, 18-inch wheels, proximity entry, a cooled driver's seat, heated rear seats, a power tilt and telescopic steering column, a rearview camera, navigation, obstacle detection and adaptive cruise control. Lane Departure Warning is standard on 5.0 R-spec models, and is optional on the 3.8.
The Premium package for the Genesis 3.8 adds a sunroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a Lexicon 14-speaker sound system, XM NavTraffic navigation and a rearview camera. The 3.8 Technology package takes the Premium package even further, adding a 17-speaker sound system, Ultimate Navigation, Bluetooth, LCD cluster display, Xenon adaptive headlights, smart cruise control, heated rear seats, a cooled driver's seat and an electronic parking brake.
Hyundai has reconfigured several of the options and trim levels for the Genesis Sedan in 2013. The most significant change is the deletion of the 4.6 liter engine from the model range. The Genesis sedan now comes in two flavors, base 3.8L and 5.0 R-spec. Also new for 2013 is an optional 8-inch display that fits neatly into the dashboard. The improved display houses the optional navigation system and is available as part of the technology package.
The Hyundai Genesis sedan takes aim at mid-priced luxury sedans. The V6 model comes with dual exhaust, dual-zone climate control and leather seats. The 5.0 R-spec s has a 17-speaker sound system, rain-sensing windshield wipers and proximity entry.
