4 cool things about the new Genesis
4 cool things about the new Genesis
Posted on January 13, 2016
Any earnest Hyundai driver will be able to identify at least one quality that they like on the Genesis, some might point to the engine options, others, to the style guide, and one can’t forget the features that allow for true customization to fit your personal tastes and preferences. The thing is, the latest generation of Genesis has done something different – it’s stepped forward and found a spotlight that it’s kept for the last few years.
Keeping this in mind, let’s run through 4 aspects that have lent themselves to making the Genesis the remarkable and well-appreciated vehicle it is today:
1 – Technologically Superior to the Competition
While the Genesis gets enough attention simply through its association with the Hyundai brand when it comes down to comparing cars shouldn’t have to rely on the manufacturers’ name alone. The good news is that this is something Hyundai is cognizant of, and the latest Genesis offers some of the most impressive automotive tech on the market to date.
Advanced airbags, blind spot detection with rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist, front and rear parking assistance sensors, all backed up by front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and stop-and-go capabilities. Furthering along the system, you’ll find lane departure warning, lane keeping assist system, and continuous damping control suspension.
2 – Tons of Comfort and Practical Features
Consider the comfort of heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, heated integrated steering wheel, and leather seating surfaces, dual-zone climate control and auto-defogging systems to keep you comfortable and safe on the road. Add to this a 9.2-inch navigation system with multimedia controller, a head up display, and 17 speaker Lexicon Discrete Logic 7 surround sound system. Add to this two different engine options dependent on the trim level which include the 3.8-litre GDI DOHC V6, which, at 311 horsepower is no Sunday driver, or the 5.0-litre GDI V8 Tau Engine with 420 horsepower, you can’t go wrong with the Genesis.
3 – A Car with a Real Personality
One of the greatest things about owning a Genesis is the fact that while the term gets thrown around often enough, this really is a car with personality. Built with a touch of the sensible, the Genesis makes an impression the second you walk up to it – mirrors unfold, car unlocks – it’s ready for you to get in, start the engine, and be on your way down to wherever the road or you choose to take it.
There’s a clear amount of effort that’s gone into the detailing on the Genesis – from the fine grain wood, to the soft leather seats, everything about this vehicle acts like we should be placing exclamation points at the end of each sentence to drive home the point. It feels great. It drives great. It’s just a great car, plain and simple.
4 – Superior Value for the Price
Alright, we know this doesn’t seem like the best way to wrap up our list of favourite qualities, but when you consider the facts and look at the specs you’re getting out of the latest Genesis model, well, there’s no denying it. This is a car that comes with really nifty and high-tech features that, if we were to compare to the higher-end luxury brands, stand its ground in more than a few positions. In fact, simply looking at the Genesis against Mercedes, BMW, and even Lexus you’ll find that the feature list on their comparable full-size car will run you as much as $10,000 more.
Which is to say that, value alone, the quality of the Genesis is going to save you some real-world cash without compromise. If you haven’t had the chance to test drive a Genesis, come down and visit us at Langley Hyundai, where our experts are here to give you the best dealership experience around!
