Hyundai Genesis Sedan

Four years ago, Korean carmaker Hyundai revealed the Genesis luxury sedan for the customers that asked for it. It will actually take a lot work until we will have the opportunity to see the redesigned version of the model. Maybe, sometime next year, but nothing is for sure. Until then, Hyundai specialists have prepared some modifications for the current model.

For instance, the engineers only offer the Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan with the base 3.8-liter V6 engine capable of developing 333 horsepower. The 4.6-liter V8 that produces 385 horsepower and also the 5.0-liter V8 offered as standard will not be available any more in the North American range. The sported-up R-Spec model receives power from a 5.0-liter V8 engine capable of developing 429 horsepower. All the output from both models is being transferred to the rear wheels through an 8-speed manual transmission gaining a sportier setup with the R-Spec. Also, the Korean specialists have provided a new 8-inch Driver Information System display that features an enhanced multi-media controller both for the 3.8 technology package and the 5.0 R-Spec models and that also has navigation. The new display features enhanced voice-recognition commands and also improves navigation screen layouts. What you do not know, is that the system also uses a 64GB solid-state drive which allows users to store music, videos and images.

This is not all the engineers have developed. The carmaker offers to the Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan its latest Blue Link telematics system gathered in three packages called: Assurance, Essentials and Guidance. Apparently the new 2013 Genesis sedan will go on sale before the end of this year, but pricing is yet to be revealed.
