2016 Hyundai Genesis – Matthews, NC

The 2016 Hyundai Genesis is seemingly attempting to reinvent the luxury segment. The vehicle certainly offers the features and attributes that often exist in these types of rides, but the nameplate also presents several amenities that are rarely seen from this segment.

For starters, the Genesis is exclusively partnered with a V6 engine and an eight-speed transmission, which differs slightly from those car brands that offer two or three engine offerings with their new rides. The interior is as luxurious as expected, but features like the C02 sensor and an integrated memory system are taking that comfort to a whole new level. Finally, the exterior is further defined by its convenience features than its actual style.

The Genesis is just as luxurious as any other vehicle in the segment (if not more so), but its innovative and creative qualities actually help separate it from the pack.

Options are overrated, especially when it comes to a vehicle’s mechanics. Why deal with the pressure of determining the perfect engine for your driving style (or why dish out extra cash for, say, additional horsepower) when you could just enjoy a versatile, well-rounded motor?

This was clearly the logic of the Genesis’ engineers, as they perfected one specific engine and transmission in order to deliver an exciting and enjoyable driving experience. The V6 engine pumps out incredible power, especially when compared to other luxury cars, and the efficiency is particularly impressive considering the horsepower and torque. Even the eight-speed SHIFTRONIC transmission is worth noting, as the system plays an important role in the vehicle’s handling and drivability.

Don’t be enticed by a brand’s promise of “four different engine options.” When it comes down to it, the Genesis’ V6 engine and eight-speed transmission are all you really need.

V6 Engine

We’ve gotten used to seeing brands offer an assortment of engine options for one specific nameplate. The Genesis is a bit different in that regard, as the 3.8-liter V6 engine is the only available offering. However, when you consider all that the unit can do, there really isn’t room for an alternative option.

The system offers excellent power, as the 311 horsepower (and 293 pounds-feet of torque) rival the specs produced by the Mercedes E350, Lexus GS 350, and BMW 535i. Despite the power, drivers will feel completely in control thanks to the rear-wheel-drive capabilities and the four-wheel anti-lock braking system. If you’re a bit apprehensive about driving with that amount of power, these two systems will certainly compensate for any of your inadequacies.

Even with all that power, engineers still found a way to make the V6 moderately fuel efficient. Technologies like Gasoline Direct Injection plays an important role in the 18 city/29 highway mile per gallon fuel efficiency.

SHIFTRONIC Transmission

When reviewing a specific vehicle, you’ll rarely see a writer focusing on a vehicle’s transmission system. But the Genesis’s mechanics are too good to ignore. The incredible eight-speed SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission helps improve the vehicle’s overall handling and driving ability.

What truly separates this system is the ability to choose between eight different speeds. For comparison’s sake, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class only includes a seven-speed transmission, while the Lexus ES 350 only offers six!

Hyundai Genesis Interior

We’d all be lying to ourselves if we said we weren’t expecting premier interior amenities and materials from a luxury car. Buyers anticipate a comfortable, enjoyable ride, and the entertainment and convenience features only help accentuate the pleasurable experience.

Well, predictably, the 2016 Hyundai Genesis offers all of the features these buyers could possibly want. The interior is filled with luxury materials, and the technological inclusions assist the driver and provide entertainment. There’s even a host of comfort amenities, like the heated/ventilated seats and the exclusive C02 sensor, improving passenger comfort.

You expected luxury features, but you may not have anticipated what the Hyundai Genesis has to offer. The innovative inclusions truly put the luxury car on a tier of its own.

Comfortable Cabin

When most car buyers picture a luxury vehicle, they envision an opulent, high-class interior. Well, they certainly wouldn’t be disappointed with what the Genesis has to offer.

The interior is covered in posh materials, whether it be the matte-finish wood trim or the premium leather seats. To take the interior to another level, engineers also added heated/ventilated capabilities to their seats, meaning passengers can relax in their optimal comfort level. The seat bolsters and power seat cushion can even be manipulated to provide the driver with excellent leg comfort.

Speaking of comfort, drivers will never need to reset their vehicle to their optimal settings. The integrated memory system avoids these inconveniences, automatically adapting the seat position, mirrors, and steering wheel to deliver drivers their preferred driving stance.


Car buyers are often focused on the glitziest amenities, so it’s natural that the Genesis’ 9.2-inch high-definition screen is the star of the cabin. Offering the best screen resolution in the class, drivers can access navigation, a driver information system, and Bluetooth streaming audio. For those looking to jam out to their favorite songs, the Lexicon Audio System with Discrete Logic 7 Surround Sound Processing provides an unmatched listening experience. Drivers can appreciate the Grammy-award-winning technology via the 17-speaker unit.

The Genesis is the world’s first vehicle to offer a C02 sensor. The system removes carbon dioxide from your cabin, keeping the air fresh. Even the Genesis Intelligent Assistant application comes in handy, allowing drivers to access the Genesis from their smartphones.

Hyundai Genesis Exterior

Hyundai Genesis Exterior


A luxury car should have a stylish and breathtaking exterior, but you wouldn’t necessarily anticipate a variety of convenience features. The Genesis certainly commands the attention of your fellow drivers, but it’s these various amenities that separates the vehicle from the pack.

The panoramic sunroof delivers fresh air to your cabin, and the hands-free smart trunk will make loading your groceries an absolute breeze. Minor inconveniences can ruin someone’s entire day, but the 2016 Genesis’ variety of exterior convenience features should improve your overall outlook.

Styling, Sturdy Design

Drivers certainly expect style from their luxury vehicle, but they might not anticipate muscle. Well, the 2016 Genesis is doing its best to buck that trend. The sturdy exterior strikes an athletic stance, hinting at the high-strength steel chassis that’s hiding underneath. This partners nicely with the stylish exterior, and the nine color options (including Manhattan Brown and Ibiza Blue) allows buyers to personalize their new luxury sedan.

The vehicle has also been designed for optimal drivability. The assorted aerodynamic features, like the large front grille and rounded hood, help reduce the overall drag, which subsequently effects the handling. The longer wheelbase has a similar impact on how the vehicle operates, delivering a smoother and quieter driving experience.

Assortment of Convenience Amenities

Drivers can’t be bothered by any minor inconveniences, as they’d rather focus on the various amenities and capabilities of their new luxury sedan. Luckily, the 2016 Genesis offers a number of features to make any driver’s life easier.

The panoramic sunroof allows fresh air and sun to flood your interior, meaning you won’t have to fiddle with controls to find your optimal comfort level. Meanwhile, the hands-free smart trunk provides unmatched convenience. Instead of fumbling through your pockets for the keys, the tailgate will automatically lift, allowing drivers to easily load or unload their cargo.
