The all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan was shown to an international audience for the first time at the Show. Although it always has a strong competition such as Mercedes, Audi and BMW just around the corner, they proved that being in top of the list is really deserved place. Some even say this new improved and redesigned Hyundai Genesis is about to cast a shadow on competition. That to prove they created new improved platform, serious exterior revamp and advanced drivetrain options. Ad a fact that this vehicle has not only fantastic rear-wheel-drive platform, powerful engine and luxury amenities but also really affordable price, and you get a great kicker.
2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan review
The car has also taken on an elegant new look, based on a “fluidic sculpture” 2.0 design concept. This is the first vehicle to actually use this design, and even achieved to overdone some of the starting ideas and now appears more luxurious and serious. Some more visual effect they achieved with redesign of large upright grille, which seems less like Hyundai and more like Audi style, and adding some the LED lighting in order to make it more modern. And for some extra effect, you got chrome details all over the cars body. For the interior, materials are more refined than in the outgoing Genesis and the switchgear simplified. They went for the calm and useful rather than flashy and cluttered. Yet they didn’t spare on the materials so the main dash is created from high-quality materials, aluminum and matte-finished wood. The new interface features a destination search powered by Google, a custom assistant app, Apple’s Siri-powered Eyes Free mode and Google Glass integration among its list of functions. There are also vehicle health status reminders, outside temperature notifications and low-fuel warnings with recommended gas station suggestions. And placed in comfortable seats that have features that improve cushioning and ergonomics, you really can’t complain much. Add a fact that there is total interior volume of 123.0 cubic feet, which is more than in rivals such as the Lexus GS and Infiniti Q70 and complains are all out.
