I love my Genesis! Great for long distance driving and daily commute. Descent miles per gallon using 87 octane gas. Great safety features, high quality interiors, and solid ride. 10 years bumper-bumper & 20 years power train warranty. Love the LED display, sound system, and having ac/heat option - front & rear seats.

Almost everywhere I go when I park my car if someone's nearby they stop and stare and they asked me if it's a Bentley and I tell him know it's a Hyundai Genesis and their mouth open wide and the comment is almost invariably a huge "WOW". Now I've done a few things to my car like, tinted the windows, had the muffler system of a 5.0, since I only have a 3.8, put on just to get it to Rumble or Roar,and a few other things nothing major some of them high-end wheels and rims to make it look even Sportier. Personally I don't many cars high-end Mercedes Jaguar BMW Porsche and by far, the value this car surpasses every one of them and I believe that if anyone drove or could drive blindfolded they would pick this car over any of the others

Love it EXCEPT blind spot warning, poor controls

Incredible value! It lives up to almost all of my expectations. Quietest car on the road, responsive and plenty of desirable features. However, while my Blind Spot Warning system always works in identifying real cars, it also warns of "phantom" cars. Lots of erroneous warnings on the freeway--could cause a driver to over-react. My excellent dealer has tried multiple times to identify the cause of the problem; Hyundai tech doesn't seem to know anything about it. Also, placement of the controls is poor. It seems to me that they let the engineers design and place the interfaces rather than someone who actually was aware of a driver's needs. For example, the complicated system to control various options is placed to the far right on the steering wheel, the cruise control is to its left. I need to use cruise control a lot more often than I do to change my settings. The manual is absurd--long, poorly designed and sometimes confusing. In spite of my frustrations, I enjoy this car and would recommend it--unless you really need a Mercedes or BMW nameplate and are willing to pay many thousands more for it.

Exceptional value and design

Regardless of your preference , test drive the Genesis. We needed to replace our Cad. DTS, and test drove Audi,BMW,CT6 ( what a joke) Jag. Then on a whim we took a test ride in Genesis. It has exceptional fit and finish, is ultra quiet, handles very well ( Have older BMW CONV. for summer ), and is loaded. Wife and I both like it, and it looks great too. Just 4000 miles but it is as solid as BMW.

I have had a 2015 Genesis AWD for 2 years. I recently ran over some rough railroad tracks. Afterwards the steering of the car became "dead" in spots. The steering wheel would not return to the normal position without input from me. It tended to stay in a turn when the car was turned. I took it to the Hyundai dealer and the found out that the car had "bottomed out" while crossing the railroad tracks. In doing so, the electronic steering was damaged causing the problem i experienced. The dealer told me the only way to repair the steering unit was to replace it at a cost of $4500. I was shocked. I consider such a design to have serious flaws. There is no protection to the underside of the car for any components and to place sensitive, expensive electronic components in this area is a real problem. They are covered by a thin shield of heavy "tar paper" - that's all. The mechanic told me that the "tar paper" was there to control air flow. Anything hitting the underside of the engine compartment can ruin costly components - rocks, potholes, road debris, etc, etc. And the electronic steering assembly is at the very bottom of the engine compartment. I have had 2 other Genesis before this current model. They were great cars. This one is NOT. I will not buy another.

Good ride

This car at sticker 52,000 is a value. At 38000 plus the dealer got me out of my lease 1 year early is outright amazing. This Ibiza blue with ivory leather is great looking. Handles great, very fast, super stable ride and all the tech you need. If you want a rear wheel drive premium sedan this car can't be beat. Drive and price an S class, 7 series,LS460, Quatraporte and you will buy this car and save 30,000 or more. An SS or Charger might cost about the same and perform as well but there is no comparison looks or build quality. This is my second Genesis and this company gets it.

Love this Car!!

I was looking to buy an E-class certified, but wanted to test drive Genesis before i could make the decision. The drive is very smooth, the quality of the ride, interior and exterior is great. Everyone who sat and drove my car loved it. Love the features i got with the Signature and technology package. I've tried regular, premium and enthanol-free gas. The mpg definitely differs, ethanol-free gave the highest so far, but is equally expensive. Since I've driven only for a month now, I cant really tell about the maintenance. But the dealer gave a 2 year oil maintenance free, have to see how that goes. Definitely reccommend if anyone is planning to buy.

From CTS-V to Genesis 5.0

Having driven this car for only a short time I think it performs very well for a 2+ ton car. It is not as fast as the V, doesn't stop as well, and doesn't handle as well but it is very quick for a big car, it stops very good for a big car, and it handles very well for a big car. All of that being said it was considerably cheaper than a new V, it is finished off much nicer inside than the V, it rides much better and is much more comfortable than the V, and gets very good fuel economy so far as I can tell. Unless you just need 640HP like in the V I think anyone that is looking for a comfortable, economical, and spacious car with reasonable power they should at least consider the Genesis 5.0. If you must have more power then I understand Genesis is coming out with their version of the V, M, AMG, RS, and the F. It will be the N performance division and I suspect it will give all of the above a run for their money.

WOW!!! Great car for thousands less

I have owned an Audi A8 4.2, BMW 750, and the Genesis stands tall next to them. I went to a dealer to look at the car and it literally sold itself. From the moment I unlocked the car I was blown away at the quality and finish. The car greats you with Genesis puddle lights ( a nice touch), get inside and immediately the design and quality is recognized to be top notch. Once in drive I was blown away at the quietness of the vehicle, performance and comfort all things I would have not expected from this manufacturer. Long distance this car is fantastic, comfort, style and safety all the boxes checked. I have to admit this car is everything and then some for the price. Test drive one you'll buy it!

Very happy with this car

Saw a Genesis in a parking lot and had to go back to check it out. Did a lot of research comparing it to similar vehicles and decided that this is a bargain - and so far it has proven to be. The base 6 is plenty powerful (311HP), the car moves very well in traffic, feels very sturdy and planted. Dash and controls are very well laid out, although I would suggest they switch the radio and temp knobs. Controls are very easy to set up, and I love being able to start the car from inside the house on cold mornings. Trunk is adequate, and rear seat passenger love the seats and ride. Totally enjoying this car, and look forward to getting in it whenever I can.

I purchased my 2015 3.8 rear drive in March 2015. It has been an outstanding car. My previous work car was a Mercedes and I like this car more. First the positives - the safety ratings are off the charts; the fit, finish and craftsmanship are all outstanding. It's over a year old now and I have had no trouble at all. It looks fantastic - mine does not have the Hyundai "H" on it so people ask me all the time how I like my Aston Martin (mine has the winged emblems only on the exterior). Inside the sound system, A/C and navigation are all excellent. I am 6'4" and I can sit up straight - so much front head room. It's quick and handles well for such a heavy car. Now for the bad news: the gas mileage is horrible. I average about 18 mpg in combination city/highway driving. The seats and suspension are too soft. The 3.8 needs a "Sport" option badly. I hate that the radio doesn't have "hard" buttons to change stations. The buttons are on the screen and hard to deal with while driving. The dealer experience has been a disaster. I have tried 3 different Hyundai dealers in the Dallas area and they are all bad. It's obvious they are used to selling cheap cars. Hyundai desperately needs to open Genesis dealerships with real customer service. I love this car and am glad I bought it. It's not perfect, but for the money you can't do any better.

I bought a new 2015 Genesis Sedan last month. I really went to the dealership just to look at the vehicle. The sales person hade it parked in front of the dealership. She told me on the phone that it was clean and gassed up for my test ride. When I parked next to it I could not see what color it was. (it was that dirty) when I met with her she did not know anything about the futures or the Genesis. When I got the keys and opened the car, it was like heaven, the car sold its self. I did express my concern about the sales person but I must say it sold its self. Once it was clean and I drove it, I returned and bought it. One gets a lot in that car that some of the more expenses one don’t have. I stopped for lunch and went inside not knowing that the vehicle was still running that how quite it was. Had to go out and turn it off. If you see one Buy one. The only short coming I think the Hyundai has is the Hyundai H on the trunk. I replaced mine with another Genesis wing made for the trunk. This makes the car look classes. You can find them on amazon for 9.00 or order them from Hyundai for 29.00. the one from amazon is the same one with the Hyundai packing.

The car was great to merely highly satisfactory for the driver, but my 5 foot tall wife was very uncomfortable. Most of the issue was related to her position in the front passenger seat. She said it was so low that she couldn't see out the front or side windows. While the seat does go higher, she never felt comfortable.

This is a value added car. For the price, you cannot beat it. A lot goes into cars but I think the technology and sound system available on this car make it a sleeper keeper. It is fast, nimble, stylish and a head turner. It is stealing some of the Bentley logo looks, but it has that urban swag that us old farts secretly want. I have had it for a year and I really--really love this car.

Excellent value

Great values on year end model. AWD and V8's very poor mileage. Blue Link very pricey for what you get...don't renew it!!! We've had the car less than 2 weeks...with less than 400 miles. Great ride. Tons of bells and whistles. Low mileage, in city, slow driver so I'm sure there is a lot of things this car can do which I will never put to the test. Very pleased with the product

First Korean car and like it.

Just got it. A very nice car. Like it very much. Noise lever is low, but not the very low that I was accustomed to. lane-keeping-assist feature works well. Suggestion to Hyundai for improvement: (1) further reduce interior noise, and (2) raise the low-beam headlight to cover 30-ft further in front of the car.

I'm 6 months into a 3yr lease of a '15 Genesis AWD. I've owned many nice cars over the year...Acura TL and RL, Cadillac CTS (prior generation,) Infinity G35 among others. I liked them all, but can honestly say this is by far the best car for the money. I got the Premium Package (I think that's it's called) so the car has most every option. It stickered at roughly $46K. I put $0 down other than 1st month's payment and walked out with a lease payment of $389. That's insane for a car with a $46K msrp! This car will hold it's own against the far more expensive competition...Audi A6, Caddy CTS, BMX 5-series, Mercedes E-Class, you name it. Anyone who drives this car and STILL chooses to pay for more for one of the others is doing it purely for the "snob factor" associated with those badges. If you can look beyond the brand, you will choose this car.

More for the money than most...

I have only owned my Hyundai Genesis for 1 month, so I'm still learning about the car and it's performance. But so far it's everything that I expected. Most of the reviews that I read about the Genesis prior to my purchase spoke about the "value" associated with this car. You clearly get more features with the Genesis than cars from other companies at the same price point. I've found this to be totally true. I decided to forgo the extra packages that are optional with the Genesis because I felt that the stock model had most everything that I want at this point. The only option I added was the AWD since I live in Connecticut. But you can clearly get some great options if you're willing to upgrade. The Genesis is pretty quiet, and has a smooth ride. But it has no performance or handling weaknesses. It's a nice blend of both. And that's what I was looking for. The interior is really comfortable. I feel like I'm in a cockpit. I'm 6' 3" and I have both ample head room and leg room in the Genesis. I like the instrumentation, and the entertainment/navigation system is touch screen, and very easy to use. My wife commented that she has "Navigation envy" since my screen is so much easier to view and understand than her car. The Blue tooth was easy to set up, and works great. I personally love the look/design of the Genesis. And the added security of the Hyundai warranty made me feel more secure in my purchase.

In the end it was worth it!

The Genesis is awesome in many ways. Safety, design, comfort....the list goes on and on. Test drive and you'll see. If you want to eliminate the negotiations part of it go to north county Hyundai. By far the quickest to get to a fair price without the hassles and common practices a dealership will put you thru. I spoke to 15 dealerships and it only took them 15 minutes before I felt comfortable giving them my credit information. That's what you call getting down to business.

I've had 5 BMW's: 2 740's, 2 135 convertibles and an X3. I guess you could say that I enjoy BMW's driving performance. But, I recently went on a long trip and I got tired of the BMW's rough ride. Sure, you feel the road, but you also feel all the bumps. So, I decided to look around. I found what I was looking for in the Genesis. It's much, much smoother than the BMW. Much more comfortable. The BMW jumps off the start faster, but the Genesis starts smoothly and then picks up. Their 0-60 specs are very similar. I went with the 5.0 to get the extra horsepower. The V-8 does accelerate well when you want it to. I test drove a BMW 535 for comparison. The Genesis is much better equipped. I really like the Lane Assist, which I didn't see on the BMW. The Lane Assist nudges you back into your lane by itself. That makes it very relaxing to drive. I also like the Adaptive Cruise control. I had one of those in a 2006 Infiniti, but it very jerky and only used it on long trips. This cruise control works in city driving. Again, it's very smooth. So, between the Lane Assist and the Adaptive Cruise control it's very comfortable. The Auto Hold feature is nice. With it on, when you stop you don't have to keep your foot on the brake. Very nice. I only wish I could set a default to have it on all the time. Overall, I'm thrilled with the car. Of course, I also like the price. I saved money and bought more car.

Great car, but same lock problem

Just like many, I absolutely love the car and was thinking about getting a 5-series before I decided on it. Feel like I got as good or better (my wife has a BMW) car for $15-$20K less. I am having exactly the same lock problem as the person I just read. Better not be $500.

Love It * (all except paying for remote start)

Great value in a luxury sedan. Happy Hyundai just announced it's launching distinct Genesis dealerships in the US, which will do nothing to enhance the driving experience, yet much to boost the prestige of driving one of the better luxury cars on the market. My 3.8 AWD is fully loaded, and short of a true remote start and auto park (offered by FAR lesser cars), I can't ask for any more features. My only gripe is that remote start is not available EXCEPT through an expensive upgrade to BlueLink, and it has to be the right BlueLink package. Seriously Hyundai? My mid-level 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited has the feature on the key FOB. For my $52K Genesis, I have to log into an APP, and work my way through several screens JUST to start the car remotely? Oh, and I have to pay for that experience....renewed annually.

Amazing Machine

I have always considered myself a "brand snob" and purchased Lexus, Volvo, BMW, etc. I never would have believed that a Hyundai would be my favorite car that I've ever owned. The fit and finish is impeccable, the ride is sublime and power delivery is smooth. Before making the purchase I cross-shopped a 5-series which felt small, and cost $20k more with equal equipment. If I had to gripe about something it would be: no keyless sensors on rear two doors, you still have to push a button to unlock the front doors (lexus you just pull the handles), the rain sensing wipers don't work well, the city gas mileage sucks. The pros far outweigh the cons though. If you are on the fence, just test drive one. Even if you don't purchase you will be amazed at just how far this brand has come.

I absolutely love my 2015 Genesis. It's performance and finish are well above average. For the money it is a very nice automobile. However I recently had a problem with the passenger and rear doors. They would not unlock unless you crawled inside and manually unlocked each door. I took the car to the dealership for repair. After more than a week they found the problem, but informed me that it would not be covered by warranty. They stated that it was caused by external sources. Close inspection of the car shows that not liquid has been ever been spilled on the driver side door where the dealer said liquid had been spilled. i don't know what the external sources could be. Anyway it cost me $500 to replace the door module. This makes me question the validity of the car's warranty. I have written it off as maintenance, but should another incident like this occur I will definitely trade this car even though I love it.

Compares to my old Lexus LS 430 2006

Head lights do not go on when wipers turned on. Bluetooth sucks asking at least 3 questions sometime 5 to dial. Great move going to the low profile tires gives the Lexus ride without the power but hey it's a 6 cylinder not an 8 real roomy inside and I'm 300lbs plus which is why I went to the Lexus in the first place. I also miss the headlights that turned on the lexus when you made a turn. So far 4 month and 3000 miles I love it!

Ahhhhh! It's comfy

I drove a 2014 Genesis base model and liked it enough to check out the restyled 2015. Glad I did. Major improvements and it will be looking good for a few more years. Bought one 4 weeks ago. I have 3000 miles in the first month. This weekend, along with another couple, we took a 750 mile round trip. After 300 non-stop miles, I never felt better getting out of the driver's seat. This was a combination of highway and secondary roads. On the highway, after a few hours I realized just how comfortable the seating and ride are. Very quiet, it is less tiring to drive. The technology is great. Adaptive cruise control is fantastic. If you are buying a premium car you should have all the options. Nit picks. I wish the headlights turned on when you turn the wipers on. That is old technology I had on cars 15 years ago and is a simple to do safety feature. I'd like to have remote start on the fob. Using the phone works, but takes too many steps that can be done with a simple button push. The auto high beam is nice on the highway. On secondary roads there were times it would dim the lights as it should have, but the reaction time to go back to brights was a bit slow as you approach a curve. Update: It has been 7 months and 12,500 miles. Still very happy with the car and its performance. Over the winter I found that the heated seats are better than any of the ones in my last four cars. Finally had a couple of warm and sunny days to try out the cooling for the seats and this is going to be nice this summer. I will not buy another car unless it has a heated steering wheel too. That touch of luxury is really great on a cold morning. One morning I was going to work on a snow covered road that is fairly steep. Two cars on the hill sere struggling and sliding, but with the H-Track AWD I just kept chugging along and passed them with no slippage of the wheels at all. I really felt secure going up that hill. Months later I'm still very happy driving the car with all the comforts, the good sound of the radio and all the gadgets. I'm looking forward to a trip of a few hundred miles this weekend. Fun car to drive. If you buy one, get all the options! Second update 13 months and 22,500 miles later, I'm still very happy with my Genesis. Now that we have a few cold morning, I can turn the heated steering wheel to the "on" position and start the car with BlueLink remote. On a cold morning it is nice to get into a car with the heater running and the steering wheel warm to the touch. Wish I could turn my seat on too but this helps. Still very happy overall. Good value, good performance. No problems or repairs.

I love my Genesis with the Ultimate package

The vehicle is fabulous. Cheers to Hyundai for having the Genesis badge front and back and removing the Hyundai badge. Jeers to Hyundai for requiring the purchase of the Blue Link Connect Care package to get the Remote package. To get the remote package for my lease period is $408 because I have to purchase connect care, which I really don't care about.

I've had my 2015 AWD 3.8 V6 Hyundai Genesis with the Ultimate Package now for a little over 1 year. Within the last 3 months, the car has developed numerous extremely annoying rattles, clunks, thuds, popping and creaking sounds inside the cabin anytime the body flexes or encounters bumps. I can't tell where they are all originating from: dash, door, sunroof, or trunk. It's very disappointing that an otherwise fine vehicle is plagued with these kinds of problems. This is my first Hyundai (and probably last) vehicle and the problems I'm now experiencing were my worst fear prior to purchasing. They make the car feel and sound cheap and are practically impossible to fix, let alone find. The build quality just isn't there yet. Other gripes: 1. Front bumper too low frequently scraped from simply entering and backing out of driveway. 2. Not enough headroom. 3. Not enough heat felt in foot area. 4. Driver side door takes more effort to close than passenger doors. 5. Side view mirrors too high obstructing vision. 6. Limited rear view. 7. Seat cushions too hard. 8. Noisy and rough riding Hankook tires. For a car in this class, Hyundai has a long way to go in my opinion. In particular, the cabin should be the focus and should be much quieter and completely devoid of ANY rattles, squeaks, clunks, thuds, popping or creaking sounds.

Inteligent choice for a emotional decision

Anyone purchasing a car in this category doesn't really need everything that comes with it - let's be serious! That being said, if you are in the frame of mind where you either feel you deserve or want to reward yourself with this class of vehicle - look no further than here. I purchased the AWD Signature/Tech package and could not be happier, but more importantly, could not be more impressed with the value/quality of the vehicle and the purchasing experience. I have owned several Lexus', driven BMWs and Merc's (on regular basis/not owned), and I have to say the bang for the buck and quality is clearly here. If you a purist and need that ultimate driving experience, then go buy BMW. But ask yourself this? How often to you truly get to exercise the limits of performance of a mid/full size sedan? Do you really need to? Some key highlights for me are: The adaptive cruise control, intuitive instrumentation (never been a fan of i-drive), and interior comfort. I am 6'7" and never felt like I fit in a car before this. Performance mode is more than apt for this size/class vehicle. It may not be the fastest, but I come back to the point does it really need to be? I typically drive in normal or eco mode and have been getting 23/24 mpg and in eco have not noticed a big difference in performance. Purchasing experience was one of the best (internet sales) - was in and in out under 2 hours, including trade in. Great customer service. Keep in mind this is not a luxury dealership so don't expect the leather couches and espresso machine, etc. However, the time, effort and care was equal to if not more so (to make for the fact they didn't have the lux dealership amenities?) than what i have experienced at the Lexus dealership. If you are looking for that lux feel and ride and would rather keep $10k-$20k in your bank account, then go test drive one of these cars and see for yourself.

I thought I would buy a Lexus

My wife and I decided to buy a new car, and a nice car, which we have never done. I really thought we would end up with a Lexus, as I have been buying Toyotas for many years. We drove several cars but it came down to the Lexus ES 350 and the Genesis. It was no contest. The Genesis had a much more sophisticated and pampered feel. The cabin is very quiet and the car is very sure around corners and curves, even at higher speeds. It's not a sports car, but it is confident. With as much tech as there is on cars these days you want the controls to be intuitive and easy to use, I mean, you're driving, there's no time for fumbling. The Genesis has the perfect balance of touchscreen selections, buttons and knobs where they should be. Overall, my favorite option is the 360 degree radar - all used for different tasks - parking, backing up, emergency braking, adaptive cruise, etc.. My wife's favorite option are the ventilated seats (We live in Houston - usually hot). For us, the Lexus was a dated vehicle compared to the Genesis. Driving the car was pleasant but boring; and the "mouse" was frustrating to use for an interface and the audio system sound was disappointing for such an elite vehicle. Make no mistake - the Lexus customer experience is entirely another level, but the Genesis, for us, was the superior car - by far - and our ultimate purchase. It's been about 2 months of ownership and we continue to be impressed. The only issue I have with the car is the mileage - 1st tank was 15.0 mpg in mixed driving. We'll see what the future holds. Overall, though, great job, Hyundai!! I'll post future reviews as it goes.... Update: Sept 2016. 7500 miles on the odo and we continue to enjoy the car. After break-in the mileage increased to about 19 mpg in mixed driving. The driver's seat motor got stuck all the way back, stranding my wife at night - not good. Somehow it was ok after we got it home and moved it back and forth a couple of times. The rear seat a/c heater fan switch failed and had to be replaced. Overall, would still recommend the car.

Nice concept but still a Hyundai

I bought a 2015 Genesis 3.8 after thinking for a long time. I never had a Hyundai before and honestly did not trust it as a reliable car. Initially the car performed well in all aspects but at 1k miles the driver seat started to vibrate and few more miles the steering wheel also started to vibrate. - First Service The vibration just got worst and at the first service and some internet research I was asked to replace the tires due a Hyundai recall, which I did. Well, that did not fix the vibration issue but just made worst. I also opened a complain with Hyundai about the vibration. - Second visit I went back to the dealer and explained in details what was happening. They inspect and said that had to perform a tire balance as they were off. - Third visit Vibration was still as before, specially around 50-60 miles. So, took it back to the dealer and again inspection more adjusts and nothing. - Fourth visit At this point I was upset and did not want the car anymore. Went back to the dealer and asked them to trade in for another car or helped me fixed, even talked to the owner. He asked the service manager to ride my car which he did and even with the vibration he said it was normal. I told him that the loaner Genesis they gave did not have it and he should drive the loaner to compare it. He said the owner would take care of my issue. After almost 3 hrs seated at the dealer waiting for someone to talk to me I went to search for the owner again and ask what would happen. At that point the owner was busy and nobody could help me. So, I decided Hyundai never more and left to trade it for another trusted and reliable brand.

One of the best entry luxury car I've ever owned

Its not as luxurious as Audi, BMW, Mercedes or Lexus, but man does it compete...and considering the price...it wins. I owned a 2012 and thought that was a great car, but the 2015 model steps up again to take a swipe at the big boys. I love that the maintenance on these is a pittance compared to the luxury brands. I love that I just out sped a Tesla. I love that it has a sharp look, a quiet ride, a stereo that sounds like sitting in the middle of a symphony, and all for less than its competition. Go test drive one and enjoy.

I recently sold my 2009 Audi S5 as we have a baby on the way and it just wasn't practical. I decided to go the sedan route and looked at Audi, Lexus, BMW and a few others but just couldn't get past the fact that the Genesis offered more features for way less money and did not sacrifice style and design. Once you put all the features on an Audi A6 (and fully equipped, it still doesn't match up to the Genesis's offerings), it was easily 15 grand more than the Genesis 5.0. I like fast cars and this one is fast! While the old S5 was probably a better driving car in the turns, the Genesis is quicker from a standstill. So far I have really enjoyed driving it and it has all the luxuries of a car you'd expect to cost quite a bit more. Style is important too and this one does not dissappoint. I watched a guy driving down my street stop in the middle of the road, get out and do a walk around the car. I replaced the Hyundai "H" logo on the trunk with the Genesis wings and I think he was trying to figure out what it was. You really don't see too many on the road, especially the 5.0 with the quad tailpipes. Since I got virtually the same color (Monticeito Blue) as my Audi, most people at work didn't even realize I got a new car. They thought it was the Audi. While I have not had any experience with service at the dealership yet, I am very happy with the purchase so far and would encourage anyone shopping in this market to give the Genesis a look. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

World class entry for the mid luxury market.

It only requires a positioning mission statement from sales and then ...the Test Drive. If the driver has done his research..the Test Drive Closes the Deal....Period. If the prospect will just get over the BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Lexus ego trip over brand badging, and just test drive the car.....it is ALL OVER. The car is virtually flawless, and the Sales/Service committment is world class. Never been happier with a car till now. Hyundai is totally committed on this Genesis and am proud to be in on the new model 3.8 Genesis. No better value even close to this car!

Better Car Than Any BMW I have owned.

It is hard to believe how quiet, comfortable and fun this car is. I have never owned a Hyundai, but have been considering the Genesis since the total redesign occurred. I have not driven it in the snow yet, but I expect that it will do well there too. Also, the heads up display is the first I have ever owned and it is spectacular. It shows much more than just the speed and improves safety immensely. The only challenge is receiving a loaner car when taking the car in for service. I think that you should be able to expect this for a car this expensive and it will be interesting to see what happens when the new "Genesis" car company starts selling its cars.

I am quite pleased with my new Hyundai Genesis sedan. It looks good, drives well, has all the bells and whistles you could ask for. The car is great! What was very disappointing - and will likely continue to be so - is the dealer experience. While the car may be world class, the dealers that i visited do not seem to understand that customers purchasing $45K plus car rent going to be satisfied by a a less than robust level of dealer support and experience. If Hyundai wants to compete with MB and BMW and the like, they need to step up there game in a big way. Great car - just hope I never have to go back to the dealer again. UPDATE: I have had the car for 8 months now - still enjoy it as much as I did when it was new.

We purchased our Genesis 3.8 exactly one year ago. Our car has the signature package, and is very well appointed for the price class. We wanted a rear wheel drive sedan, and all competitive Japanese and German makes were substantially more expensive than the Genesis. This car is solid and very well thought out. We have had NO PROBLEMS WITH ANYTHING in the 1st year. Hyundai replaced the OEM Korean tires with Michelin Primacy MXV4s at factory expense because of excess ride harshness and noise with the Hankook originals. The build quality and material quality on this vehicle is excellent, and I don't think there is a better all around value in the market today. Best car we have ever owned.

Review I purchased 3.8 RWD Genesis with all 3 packages on 3/22/15. I saved ~$15-20K from buying a brand name with identical options. I'm happy it came with Michelin instead of Hankok tires. I love the whisper quiet inside the cabin that almost isolated from any engine and road noise. It's so roomy for 5 adults together with a huge trunk. The 311 HP engine is not that sporty with "Eco" mode but adequate to drive this heavy big sedan agilely. However, once you're engaged in "Sport" mode, it's another different story. For 0-62 MPH, the time should be 1 second or more less in "Sport" mode. Pretty well balance during acute cornering, I feel secure with the safety packages. Favorite Features I love the safety technology like the blind spot detection/rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, haptic steering wheel, electronic parking brake with automatic hold, automatic emergency braking, especially the smart cruise control with stop/start. There're many features I appreciate most like head-up display, power trunk lid, slide panoramic sunroof, Lexicon 17-speaker with surround sound, Power rear sunshade, 9.2 inch HD display as well as the ultra premium leather seats and genuine matte finish wood trim. Suggested Improvements The windshield wipers cannot be raised for cleaning. No power tilts up function after closing panoramic sunroof sliding cover. No remote control for windows open. Brighter head-up display. More power for 3.8 liter V6 engine. Higher mileage for gas. No Frog light. No folding rear seats.

Still my favorite car so far. For the price, I don't think you get the same value anywhere else. There was an ongoing issue with the nav system that required them to have to replace the unit in the dash altogether, but the dealer was easy to work with and there were no hidden fees anywhere. Aside from that everything else worked / works great. I plan to run this car for a long time. I still get inquiries on the make of it.

I've owned my 2015 Genesis for 15 months and have enjoyed everyday of ownership. I compared this model to the Infinit Q70 (previous car was a 2007 Infiniti M35). Every aspect of this car is great. I went on a 2k trip (twice) and never was tired. While cruising effortless in west TX at over 80 mph, fuel economy averaged between 25 - 30 mpg. Handling is great and virtually no road noise (not even from the tires). Great value for the money and a great deal. The adaptive cruise control and lane guidance is terrific and works great. I continue to be amazed at the level of luxury and abundance of important features for the price paid. Why do the German and Japanese brands charge so much extra for these important safety features? They certainly don't justify the significant premium. I especially like the head's up display and the assortment of indicators that are presented. Great features for a great price. Has more technology than the German options and a better value than Lexus or Infiniti.

Love my Genesis, but have two (minor) issues

I bought the 3.8 with the Signature and Tech packages, plus AWD, since I'll be driving in snowy mountains in the winter. I've had it for 3 months now, and absolutely love it. I'm amazed at how much value the Genesis offers. Unless you really need superior "racing" performance, it can go toe-to-toe with BWM, Audi, Mercedes, Lexus, etc., but for $10K-$12K less. I wouldn't say those brands are in trouble, but they are definitely under attack.

Love this car!

the second gen is an huge improvement over the first gen. I did not own a first gen but i've spent weeks with a rental Even the basic signature is miles ahead of the 2014. overall i love the car, hyundai did drop the ball on a few things but none were enough to move on to another and most can be corrected in the aftermarket. I'm referring to the lack of foglights for the V6, which they admit is the volume model(they can be sourced and installed)the amber DRL, it's very 2004 and has NO PLACE in a in my case 47k vehicle, the canadian version somehow uses the LED strip for it's DRL the car is very quiet,great interior room (im 6'7) you can't go wrong

What is Edmunds thinking!!!

Edmunds, I have no idea what the B rating is about , but your the experts. Granted , this is my first time in the 35,000-$45,000 segment, This is by far the best Car Ive ever owned. To step up to this level in automobile was so important. So I wanted value above all. and this car offers that and some. Ive read all the reviews, and looked at other brands as well.Its very responsive but not as spirited as some german brands, but very complete in performance for only its 2nd Generation. Future is bright for this car and Hyundai/Kia. It offers way to much for your money that the others brands will have to adjust. Well done Hyundai!!!

Best car I've ever bought.

Hyundai has come a very long way, and the 2015 Genesis sedan puts it in the elite company of Mercedes, BMW and Lexus. I purchased mine yesterday and was amazed at the fantastic electronics package, the amazing comfort and overall stylish look. I traded in my 2007 Lexus which I had purchased new and in all honesty, can't hold a candle to the Genesis. We had looked into buying the Lexus LS460 which this Genesis is comparable to in all ways except for being about $25k less in price.

Superb vehicle

Hyundai hit a home run on 2nd Gen Genesis redesign. This is truly a very well designed and executed vehicle with phenomenal value. I traded in a 2012 Azera for 3.8L Genesis and could not be happier. This vehicle is a thrill to drive. It starts with closing the door and hearing this solid quiet close, then experiencing a very serene ride and sharp handling for a vehicle this size. The sound level is amazingly quiet, like being in a vault. Safety features are state of the art and an indicator of what is to come.

Love This Car!

I bought my 2015 Genesis in December, 2014 and absolutely love the look, feel and way the car drives. My prior car was a 2007 Infiniti M35, which didn't have Sirius radio capability or any of the advanced safety features that attracted me to the Genesis. It's worth noting that the 2015 version of the Infiniti costs $18K more than the Genesis with the same features, plus I now have a much better warranty than I would have had otherwise. I did see one review that complained about Hankook tires, but I had them on my Infiniti and think the ride is both quiet and smooth. I've owned a dozen cars, including a BMW and an Infiniti, and the Genesis beats them all hands down.

Great car, second to none!

Leased the Genesis AWD with ultimate package about a month ago. After looking at all the luxury cars I came back to the Genesis as it felt the best. Love the technology and electronics, as well as the car road handling. Quality and finish are top rated, very roomy both front and rear seat. Driving and handling is great, both in the city and on the highway.

Genesis is following in Lexus' footsteps

Remember when Lexus first hit the market? It wasn't too long afterwards that it was a big hit! The same story is unfolding for the Genesis. This car has the luxury, style, sportiness, and power of the Mercedes E-class, BMW 5 series, Audi A6 and the Lexus GS... and for 15-20K dollars less! It can do 0-60 in 5.1 to 5.3 seconds, too! The 5 liter V8 is rated at 420 horsepower with an 8 speed auto transmission. It does everything really well. I bought the Ultimate package and I'm glad I did. My last three cars were a Mercedes and Lexus. I alomst went back to Lexus, but decided to give the beautiful Genesis a chance... I'm glad that I did!!

So far so good, but one aggravation

After driving Buicks & Cadillacs for several years I looked at the Lincoln MK series, drove a Lexus and settled on the Genesis with the Signature package. Traded in a 2011 Buick Lucerne, which I loved. In hindsight I wish I'd sprung for the Tech package with a few more features that I miss. The biggest aggravation is getting the nav system to take voice inputs. Manual inputs work fine or if I say something she recognizes like "Starbucks" or "Texaco" then it works like a charm. But a voice input street address comes up with some of the weirdest options I've ever seen. Anyone else have the same issue?

An excellent cruiser. I have a long commute and I set the adaptive cruise control and this car pretty much drives itself. The ride and seats are supremely comfortable. It is NOT, however, a "fun to drive" car. It is too big and heavy. The grill is the finest looking grill I have seen (Yes it looks like a cross between an Audi and Aston Martin to me). It is very well equipped and is 15k-20k cheaper than the German alternatives. One can't even get a C class (which is an inferior car strait up against this Genesis) equipped similarly for anything near this car.

Good but annoying..

Wrote a review last year after driving my 3.8 Genesis for about 1000 miles. After about 4000 miles and the weather turning colder in Michigan, I noticed popping and cracking sounds coming from the sunroof, in the rear and front. I have an ultimate package. Because the car is so quiet it really stands out and is very annoying. Happens constantly when there is minor shifting of the car's weight, in addition to driving over bumps. Took it to the dealer who had no resolution to the problem. My next move is to contact Hyundai directly. Shame because it is a nice car but hard to positively compare it to the Germans luxury models.

I bought the 2015 AWD Genesis on Memorial day in 2014. Wonderful great looking extremely beautiful car. I was going to buy the 5 series and bought the Genesis instead because of its value for money and Hyundai's superb warranty program. After having the car for 8 months, having driven it for just about 2k miles I have some concerns about the car. The leather in my car has been deteriorating with time, more than expected, more than I have ever noticed in my other vehicles. Also, the reading light LED inside the car have failed in the first week of buying the car. Hyundai helped me through it but it still upsets me when I think about the issues I had.

Well balanced performance, excellent fit and finish and $10 to 15 000 cheaper than similar size sedans. This car is perfect for those customers that aren't under the spell of premium brands.

I test drove several cars over the course of 6 months and narrowed my choices to the BMW 5 series and Audi A6. Hands down the Genesis offers the best value for the buck. Considering all the features you will pay at least $15,000 more for a BMW and Audi. The Genesis ride beats the BMW 5 series and is very comparable to the A6. The car is whisper quiet, great acceleration, sporty but comfortable ride. BMW and Audi should be on watch...Genesis hits them right between the eyes. I am shocked this is only a B rated car on Edmunds

A vastly superior ride to my 5 series with equivalent handling and features. Although it doesn't match the sportiness of an Audi A6 or a Cadillac CTS, it is a fantastic cruiser and should strongly be considered by anyone thinking about the Mercedes E class, Jaguar XF, or Maserati Ghibli.

Car is absolutely amazing and a great value. Test drive a Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, and Acura and this is a sure winner. It has way more trunk space, way more interior space and the features are more than the same level luxury brand, for 20,000 less.

Before purchasing my 2015 Hyundai Genesis with ultimate package I did extensive research and took several test drives including one in which the dealer gave me the opportunity to keep the vehicle overnight. I read dozens of reviews and every last one praised the interior luxury including the real matt wood, aluminum trim, extremely comfortable soft leather 12 way power drivers including thigh extension, effectively heated and cooled , heated steering wheel, 9.2 inch infotainment touch screen with manual controls for those who prefer them. I have no idea what vehicle was being reviewed as subsequent Edmonds reviews praise the Genesis as an exceptional value.

I had a 2009 Genesis 4.6, then anEquus 2011 Signature, and have just gotten a 2015 Genesis 3.8 RWD, tech package. So far it is a great car the one thing I do not like in this car is that the drivers side seat belt connector is below the height of the seat and therefore neccitates rubbing the side of my hand against the console to secure the belt. This being done repeatedly has caused an irritation on the knuckle of the 5th digit. Would like to know if there is some way to extend the connector. Even the 2014 has theheight higher not causing hand to rub on console.

While I only have 1700 miles on my new Genesis as a BMW owner I can say Look Out 5 series ! This car comparably equipped is $20,000 under MSRP to a BMW 535! And, the 5 has less room to boot ! Getting used to less road feel is the only major difference between the two. You need to drive both and decide for yourself. Then ask the banker what the better value is ! Get all three packages and cruise on down the road! Follow up : Great car ! Quiet smooth ride. Good car for the money and Huyndai dealer service is exceptional.

I took delivery of a 2015 Genesis AWD with the Signature, tech and Ultimate Packages just over 6 weeks ago. This was my second Hyundai as I traded a 2013 Azera in on the Genesis. The car is a wonder. It has so many features it took me a few days to figure them all out. But on a purely subjective assessment the exterior exudes "luxury". The fit and finish are up to luxury car standards. The interior is also outstanding with butter soft leather, burled walnut and nary a hard plastic surface to mar the ambiance. It is a great value and you are getting a superior car. How much is a BMW propeller or Mercedes Tri-Star worth? Not the $15,000 - $20,000 they charge for a comperable vehicle.

I have the 6 cylinder with premium and tech package. First with the high tech equipment this car compares favorably with a BMW or Lexus costing $20k more. This is the quietest car I have ever driven. I have had Lexus and BMW 5 series. The ride is more Lexus like. Handling isn't as sporty as a BMW but compares favorably Lexus and Mercedes. Has very little roll while cornering. At highway speeds it feels glued to the road. Have had for two months, no problems at all. Very comfortable interior and well laid out controls. Entertainment system is superior.

Moved up from a 2009 Sonata (which was a fairly reliable car and a good value) to a 3.8 Genesis RWD with Ultimate Package. I have had the car for about 3 weeks and driven 2,000 miles, both hwy. and city. I must say that I am very impressed. The car is very quiet, responsive to all driving situations and has a ton of features; all which improve the driving experience. The interior layout is clean, logical, and elegant. Seating is very comfortable and ergonomically designed to fit almost anyone, including rear seating. The exterior design, albeit not my favorite compared to Cadillac or Audi has been a head turner and a source of several compliments at gas stations and supermarket lots.

I read the recent review posted by the "professional critic" and I must say that I completely disagree, and consider he is delusional when it comes to back seat leg room. I compared the new 2015 Genesis against each of the following cars; the Audi A6, The Mercedes E350, the BMW 535i and the Lexus. After test driving the 2015 Genesis, hands down the new 2015 Genesis AWD 3.8 fully loaded, out performs, out classes in all areas all of these cars. I have personally been driving for the last 40 years Mercedes, BMW, Range Rover, and Lexus, and this new 2015 model is a game changer...period!

Nicely executed exterior design, quiet and composed ride, but clear cost cutting everywhere else with a plain-jane interior that neither feels luxurious or sporty, cheap plastic switchgear abound, ventilated seats that bearly ventilate even on the hightest setting, surprisingly cramped rear seats, a smooth but gutless powertrain and truly mediocre fuel economy. The only bright spot is the panoramic sunroof. Oh, did I mention the Hankook tires in a $45K "luxury" car?
