2012 Hyundai Genesis
2012 Hyundai Genesis
Hyundai's Genesis is the real deal: a world-class, rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan that's not afraid to spar with the best that Lexus, Buick, and others have to offer. The three Trim Levels -- 3.8, 4.6, and 5.0 R-Spec -- denote their respective engine displacements. The 3.8-liter V-6 should please even more buyers this year, as it receives a 43-hp bump for 2012; a bit more cash buys the 4.6-liter V-8 and all its lovely trimmings and extra oomph. The 4.6-liter is no longer the top-dog trim level in the Genesis sedan, however, with the appearance of the 5.0 R-Spec, which offers 44 more horses and sportier chassis tuning for a premium of only $2000. For 2012, all sedans also get a cosmetic face-lift and a more efficient eight-speed automatic transmission. The coupe version of the Genesis looks far different from the sedan and is equipped with either a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder or the sedan's 3.8-liter V-6 (without direct injection). The two-door tries -- but mostly fails -- to compete with the Infiniti G37 and the BMW 3-series. Some say it's a shameless amalgam of several premier upscale cars, but the Genesis -- both in sport-coupe and luxury-sedan form -- is nonetheless an impressive effort, so if you're looking for a premium car that's relatively easy on your wallet, be sure to test-drive a Genesis. If you desire all-star large-car luxury at a cut rate, you might consider ponying up for the newer Equus, but that car's existence might conveniently help create some good deals on Genesis sedans.

Although the Genesis sedan is less of a revelation than it was when it debuted three years ago, it's still a worthwhile option in the near-luxury segment. Its infotainment interface continues to be one of the most attractive and user-friendly systems and its cabin remains cosseting and unique without feeling stuffy or overwrought.

Report: Hyundai Still Mulling Genesis Sub-Brand for Coupe, Sedan, Equus
What’s in a badge? Don’t answer that question, because Hyundai’s about to do so: we hear the automaker is working on making the Genesis name a sub-brand in the vein of Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti.

2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8
The Hyundai Genesis just feels right. The steering has enough weight and precision to interest a driving enthusiast, while remaining light enough to appease the casual commuter. The engine and transmission are smooth and restrained, but can usher up performance if you mash the go pedal. All the buttons, gauges, and screens are legible and easy to use. The headlights now have a cool curved LED accent strip, which looks fantastic at night. In short, every part of the Genesis feels taut, precise, and elegant.

2012 Hyundai Genesis 5 0 R Spec Front Right View
2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec
If you are simply trying to get the most for your $50,000, the Genesis 5.0 R-Spec makes a ton of sense -- more power than a BMW 550i or Infiniti M56 for the price of a 535i or M37. The ten-spoke wheels add a welcome touch of menace to the quiet exterior, and the hushed 5.0-liter V-8 sounds pretty good when you really wail on it. Even at full throttle, though, it can't drown out the sound of Hyundai knocking a glass ceiling. The automaker has hit many homeruns over the past two years -- including the Genesis -- but it still has something to learn when it comes to getting people to spend close to $50,000. The 5.0 R-Spec is nice, of course. It's fast, luxurious, and well put together. So is the $35,000 Genesis 3.8. The important difference is that the 3.8 competes in a price range where many buyers really want a practical, luxurious, nondescript looking sedan. For $45,000 to $50,000, I think people want to feel a bit special.
