The Genesis 5.0 sedan – why it’s a big deal to Hyundai and to the luxury marketPosted On February 1, 2016
When you watch a commercial or read a review about the new Genesis Sedan there’s one thing that comes across from the automaker in a direct and absolute way: confidence. Now, while there are certainly situations that would have you take this confidence as arrogance for Hyundai it couldn’t be further from the truth.
The new Genesis 5.0 Sedan is exactly what it promises to be: stylish, effective, fun to drive, and priced right. Whether you want to focus on the fact that there are some really remarkable customization options or the technological features that stand up in a sea of bland and established norms – the Genesis makes a name for itself simply by addressing the expectations of drivers in this modern driving landscape.
Note that you’ll find things that you’d expect, such as advanced airbags, blind spot detection with rear cross traffic alert and then appreciate the additions that range from lane change assist, front and rear parking assistance sensors, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, all the way up the list to stop-and-go fuel-saving capabilities.
We’re not done yet – lane departure warning, lane keeping assist system, and continuous damping control suspension – all built into a comfortable vehicle that speaks volumes about the future for Hyundai. Inside, you’ll sit down on 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.
Take control with your command centre – a 9.2-inch navigation system with multimedia controller, a head up display, and 17 speaker Lexicon Discrete Logic 7 surround sound system.
The Sedan is offered with two highly-effective engine options related to trim level. Either 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, this is definitely a vehicle worth experiencing for yourself!
Let yourself make an impression when you’re in the city or out on the highways on an adventure with everything you’d expect from a vehicle that has the future in sight.
