The Genesis has helped Hyundai pave its way into the hearts of American luxury car buyers. The full-size sedan features appealing curves, sophisticated design, and an aggressive front fascia. There’s no denying this car makes a statement and its bold presence can hold its own against high-end luxury makes, and its modest price tag certainly doesn’t hurt.
This year, the Genesis is built on a new rear-wheel drive platform with a three-inch longer wheelbase making it longer (and more spacious) than both the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

2015 Hyundai Genesis Performance
The 2015 Genesis retains its two engine options from last year: the standard 3.8-liter V6 that generates 311 hp and 293 ft-lb of torque, or the available 5.0-liter high-performance Tau® V8 that puts out 420 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.
A new all-wheel drive option will appeal to drivers who battle winter conditions country-wide.
2015 Hyundai Genesis Efficiency
According to fueleconomy.gov, the standard 3.8-liter V6 gets 18 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 22 combined fuel efficiency. The 5.0-liter Tau® V8 is rated at 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 18 mpg in combined fuel efficiency.
2015 Hyundai Genesis Interior
The 2015 Hyundai Genesis sees a totally revised interior, including an updated center console and stack, a larger navigation display, and a more curvy design, all of which are modern and appealing. A tasteful blend of wood, aluminum and metallic rim round out the interior’s design. The seats are more comfortable this year and the steering wheel shape has been updated for a more comfortable, enjoyable driving experience.

The Genesis also offers two all-new unique features. The first is a CO2 sensor which will automatically open outside vents when it detects levels of human C02 emissions that can induce drowsiness, the other feature is a hands-free trunk-opening system which engages when the driver stands next to the trunk for three seconds.
2015 Hyundai Genesis Safety
The Hyundai Genesis comes standard with Front and rear head airbags, a traction and stability control system, dual front and dual rear side-mounted airbags, emergency braking assist, and a post-collision safety system.
