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 numbers. 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. The 5.0 R-Spec gets 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, proximity entry. The interior is trimmed in leather and wood and metal accents. The 5.0 R-Spec adds power sunroof, cooled front seats, 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.
The 2014 Genesis sedan is essentially the same as last year's model. The 3.8L comes with 18-inch wheels this year.
The Genesis competes with the Lexus GS and Infiniti M as well as higher-priced models from Germany, such as the BMW 5-series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Hyundai brings luxury level performance and appointment at an impressive price point. The Genesis starts at $35,200, thousands less than others in the class.
