Overview Information

Hyundai has a sedan to compete in just about every category. The Genesis is a large rear-wheel-drive sedan with proportions similar to the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Ford Taurus. The interior is filled with luxury features and appointments like a leather wrapped dash, heated/cooled seats, and an extraordinary Lexicon 7.1 audio system. Genesis models are tied to their powertrains. All Genesis models include an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Also for 2016, Genesis 5.0 models are now only available in the fully-equipped Ultimate trim designation. 2016 Genesis models will begin arriving in dealerships in November. 2016 Hyundai...Read.
