New For 2014

Electrically assisted steering replaces the old hydraulic system. Eighteen-inch aluminum wheels are now standard on the Genesis 3.8, and a heated steering wheel is now available for R-Spec models.

Vehicle Summary

The Hyundai Genesis sedan spars with the Buick LaCrosse, the Volkswagen Passat, and other offerings from the world’s quasi-luxury automakers, and it holds its own. The Genesis sedan is the real deal -- a rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan with posh touches and ample high-end features. Hyundai has been updating the Genesis sedan every year since its introduction for the 2009 model year. For 2010, the automaker made navigation standard in 4.6-liter V-8-powered Genesis sedans. For 2011, Hyundai added a 5.0-liter V-8 to the lineup. For 2012, we saw the addition of an eight-speed automatic transmission. Now the 4.6-liter engine has disappeared, and the features list is more polished. If you’re looking for solid, large-car luxury at a cut rate, the Genesis sedan is worth a test drive.


The 2014 Hyundai Genesis sedan is chasing the German dream. Oh, wouldn’t it be a sight if a Korean car company built something that surpassed Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz in quality, comfort, and prestige? Keep dreaming. The Genesis sedan is like a Chinatown knock-off Michael Kors purse -- it’s close enough to the original to make you look twice, but you should probably just save up for the real thing. Even if the knock-off is enticingly inexpensive.

The Genesis sedan comes with two engines: a 3.8-liter V-6 and a 5.0-liter V-8. The smaller engine is neither as proven nor as collected as the small-displacement engines in its proven German competitors, so we suggest the big, grumbling V-8. It is far more responsive and very eager to move the big sedan.

Regardless of powertrain, Snow Belt owners might be put off by the fact that all-wheel drive isn't an option on this land yacht. Fear not, readers with rabbit-fur hats. We drove a V-8-powered Genesis sedan on all-season tires after a rather nasty winter storm, and traction control kicked in and apportioned power so that forward progress was unimpeded. With winter tires, the rear-wheel-drive car would be almost as good as a vehicle with all-wheel drive.

The 2014 Hyundai Genesis sedan will have to keep chasing the dream for now, but Hyundai gets closer to realizing it with every update the car receives.

All the anticipation may be focused around the completely redesigned 2015 Hyundai Genesis, but the outgoing 2014 Hyundai Genesis sedan does receive some mild updates for its last year before the new model comes out. These changes will be accompanied by a $1000 price increase, bringing the base price to $36,120 (including destination) for a 2014 Genesis 3.8 model.
