2012 Hyundai Genesis Specification and more
The Genesis has been a car that has packed in the consumers that have loved the car for many reasons since it was first introduced by Hyundai in 2009. People loved the power of the rear wheel drive car that was like none other on the market at the time. But, with 2012 right around the corner, what does Hyundai have in mind for the Genesis? There are going to be a few minor cosmetic changes to the Genesis, that is more than likely not going to hurt anyone's opinion of the car, however, the big change is what they are doing under the hood that is going to make the Genesis better than ever.
The same two engines are going to be offered in the Genesis as there was before with the V6 and the V8 being offered. However, they have improved the existing engines. The new V6 is the 3.8 liter, V6 engine that is going to bring around 333 horsepower to the table. While the new V8 is boasting 4.6 liter that is going to offer better gas mileage than it did in the past. However, the new option that has everyone talking is the V8 engine with the 5.0 liter that is offering 429 horsepower. This option is called the R-spec and it basically top of the line when it comes to the Genesis. Those that want this option though can be sure that they are going to pay the price, at a tune of around $40,500.
For 2012, the exterior is going to see new headlights that are really catching the attention of everyone, especially since the previous versions of the Genesis did not really have anything that stood out in the crowd when looking at the front end. The rear taillights and bumper have also had a bit of work done to them, however, there is nothing there that is really going to attract the attention of those that are looking for differences. The interior of the car is still spaced very nicely and is perhaps one of the largest feeling interiors of any sedan that is on the market, which is a huge plus for Hyundai. Add into the fact that they have went to all levels to make sure that the car feels good on the inside and is going to be the luxurious ride that people have hoped for.
There are not many options for people to choose from with the Genesis and this is because the Genesis really sells itself without having any options. Also, the safety features of the Genesis are something that most people like because there are eight standard airbags, and so forth. However, the 2012 Genesis has not yet received its rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. So is the 2012 Genesis going to blow the consumer away? More than likely those that are big fans of the Genesis are going to love it, however, those that are strictly fans of other luxury cars that are going to cost around the same price are not going to be impressed.
