2016 Genesis Overview

Hyundai Genesis offers just about everything you would expect in a world-class luxury car, if not the most prestigious badge.Perceptions aside, the Genesis has earned its place as a legitimate contender in the world-class luxury field.

The Genesis is now in its second generation, which was introduced as a 2015 model.It's more prestigious and distinctive than its predecessor, designed to compete with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, and Cadillac CTS.The Genesis is loosely styled along the lines of those rivals, incorporating attractive elements of each.There are key differences, though, like the Genesis's full-size footprint and sleek fastback profile.

Genesis continues into 2016 with minor equipment revisions only.

The Genesis features rear-wheel-drive architecture and comes standard with a 3.8-liter V6 good for 311 horsepower.The available 5-liter V8 delivers a massive boost to 420 horsepower.All-wheel drive is available with the V6 only.Both engines incorporate an 8-speed automatic transmission and selectable driving modes.

Genesis is EPA-rated at 18/29 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined, with the V6 engine with rear-wheel drive.That drops to 16/25 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined, with all-wheel drive.The V8, which requires Premium gasoline, is rated at 15/23 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined.

The Genesis starts out with a significant price advantage in this class, which becomes only more apparent as you add options.A fully equipped V8 Genesis is priced about the same as entry-level midsize sedans from the big luxury brands.While the Genesis doesn't offer the same level of athleticism as those models, it's obviously a lot of luxury sedan for the money.

Model Lineup

The 2016 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 ($38,750) comes with V6, leather upholstery, navigation, hands-free power trunk lid, HD and satellite radio.Genesis all-wheel drive ($41,250) comes also with heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and headlamp washers.

Genesis 5.0 ($53,850) steps up to the V8 engine and all of the 3.8's options as standard, plus enhanced interior trim and a driver-adjustable suspension system.(All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Exterior

The Genesis doesn't wear a Hyundai badge, but gets its own winged logo that appears inside as well.This subtle rebranding makes sense; the Genesis bears a stronger resemblance to its luxury competitors than its own brothers.That's not to say the Genesis suffers from a case of copycat styling.Its coupe-like roofline and gaping hexagonal grille provide plenty of distinction.The look is softer and more elegant in the back, if less eye-catching.The long hood with its pronounced power dome appears perfectly suited to housing a V8 engine.

Interior

The Genesis follows a clean and simple design theme inside.Shapes are mostly linear, but softened at the edges for an integrated look.The dashboard features a relatively flat face and strong horizontal orientation.Controls are neatly arrayed in the center stack and buttons are kept to a minimum, a welcome departure from the complex interfaces found on some luxury cars.Gauges are of the traditional analog type, which means they're easy to read.

The Genesis also offers a color head-up display that shows vehicle speed as well as safety alerts and navigation prompts as …
