Being an avid car owner, this being my 26th vehicle, I can say it beats all of the others by a very wide margin. I have owned just about every make on the market and Hyundai doesn't disappoint at all. This car punches way above its weight class at a fraction of the price. Stylish, roomy, quiet, comfortable, and I still get 24+ mpg's average out of a large sedan. This Genesis has all of the bells and whistles that many other manufacturers have only a few of. If you're looking for an amazing car that can save you THOUSANDS of dollars, then check out a Genesis today!

Did a test Drive and I want to buy

I did a test drive to see if I would like this car. Well I loved it!! It was very quiet and handled well for the way I drive. I do mostly highway driving and this car is made for just that. It is very comfy to drive I am 6ft 3ins so I need a lot of room and this is the right car for me.

Can't believe it

Coming out of a 2016 mercedes-benz c class because of mechanical issues.I purchased a 2016 Genesis w/the ultimate package. I feel like i made the best decision of my car buying life. I love everything about this car and the technology is at the level that you would find in any other high end vehicle.Way to go Genesis ty

Truly a value compared to anything else!

I sold my supercharged Audi A6 to buy this Genesis. While I think the car has plenty power for daily driving, I feel like this car really should have a turbo or supercharger for more low end torque like the Audi. I know it would add more cost, but at least make it an available engine choice. Thats the only thing I can really think of as a "con" for me. The rest of the car is amazing. Quiet, smooth, comfortable, and very attractive. I also like that the interior room it affords a family of four, much more than the German rivals. IMO, this car is the perfect blend between Audi, BMW and Lexus. It looks European, but its quiet and smooth like a Lexus. So far I am thrilled will the purchase, first time in a long time that I don't have buyers remorse:)

I love my new Genesis!

I test drove several cars before I chose to lease my Genesis. I was looking for a reliable four door sedan that had a great ride, was comfortable (I'm a big guy!) and had all of the latest technology. In addition to the Genesis, the cars that I test drove were the Buick Lacrosse, Audi A6, Lexus GS350 and the Infinity Q50. All of the models had most of the features that I wanted and were in a similar price point. I was surprised at how nice the Lacrosse drove but it lacked the leg room that I desired. The Genesis was the second car that I drove but prior to stopping into the dealership, it wasn't high on my list because....well it was a Hyundai and I didn't know much about the product! I was first taken by the styling of the Genesis and noticed that it was a high-end looking vehicle. After checking out the interior I was impressed by both the comfort of the seating as well as the layout of the instrument panel. When the ignition was turned on, the instrument and touch screen panels blew me away with colors and sound and I have to say, it brought out the inner kid in me! I just couldn't wait to see all of the things that it did! The test drive was also impressive, although the gas pedal was a little stiff, the car handled very well. The car really sold me! Next, I drove the A6 which was high on my list for its styling and reputation. After test driving the car, alhough I felt like it was a high performance vehicle, I just wasn’t as comfortable in it as I was in the Genesis and the instrument panel wasn't as impressive either! Next, I drove the GS350. I felt that the exterior styling wasn't as nice as any of the previous three cars that I drove although the comfort was great, it had the features that I wanted and the interior was well appointed with a wood grain finish. It was a very hot day when I test drove this car and the wood grained stirring wheel was almost too hot to hold on to. I much preferred the leather steering wheels found on each of the other cars I drove! The last car that I test drove was the Q50. It was a cool car but I was just too big for it! During my test drives, I found myself comparing each car to the Genesis and in the end, the Genesis was the right car for me! The sound system is awesome, I love the heads up display as well as the 9” touch screen that is very easy to read and use. Now that I have had the car for a month, I still can’t wait to drive it each day!

Should be a great car, if I ever figure it out.

I was happily putt-putting around town in my Kia Soul Bae, when at age 70 I decided it was the time in my life for a fancy car. I thought the Genesis sedan was beautiful....so I tried the three year lease. Buyers remorse: Yes! For me, it is simply too much to learn. The manual might not fit into the Library of Congress. For instance there is a very thick "quick guide" to the navigation system that supposedly simplifies a "Gone With the Wind" full size navigation system guide. The day to day operation of the car presents some challenges as well. Getting in and out is a struggle...and I'm a short 5'5". The driver side mirror doesn't re-adjust properly after you reverse it out of the driveway. This is an intermittent problem, but more often than not You have to manually re-set it up to its proper position. Cracking the door open in order to turn off the engine without wasting battery is an odd procedure as well. On the plus side, the lane departure warning and other safety features are a delight, as is the cruise control. The stop and hold and ECO controls are wonderful too, but you have to re-set them every time you start the car. Stuff like the automatic trunk opening are silly and unnecessary. If you go around the back of the parked vehicle with the keys in your pocket it pops open whether you want it to or not. Bottom line, the Genesis is a wonderful vehicle, but for me it is mentally exhausting to operate. Love the Hyundai and Kia brands.....so when this lease is mercifully over...maybe I'll go back to the Kia Soul....with all the trimmings.

Beautiful and low cost lease and operate

This is my first Hyundai ever! I've been driving Mercedes (E-class) for the last 10-years and I cant say enough good things about Genesis. First the value is amazing, I didn't want another $700 lease for 3-more years, so I'm driving a car that has real leather, full power, every option I need (and more), regular gas, cheap oil changes, diamond white paint, panoramic roof, and all of that for $399 a month with $399 (first payment) due at drive-out, didn't even pay sales tax! The new 2017 MB E350 would be at least $800 a month right now. The ride, road noise, and comfort cannot be beat and I'm 6'3". I've had it only 3-weeks so far and my only complaint (which I knew going in) is the car has a vibration when sitting idle or at a stop, I'm told this is normal and due to the fuel pump being mounted on the top of the engine and could get better when engine breaks in. I notice it more when the air conditioner is set to low and the fan on a moderate speed, but I live in Houston so that will be most of the time. I have searched the internet for recalls or forums talking about this issue, but cant find a single mention. I also have to note I drove the 2017 Genesis G80 (exact same car) and it too did the same thing and probably a bit worse so I'm resigned to the fact that's just how they are designed and for $3,600 less a year in payments I'll live with it!

Simply Awesome

Owner since February 2016. Absolutely not problems. Car is a definite head Turner. Mileage is 23 mpg overall. Not bad. Car uses regular gas. It is a solid and heavy luxury vehicle. Safety is number one. It has the excellent road feel. The I interior is first class-real wood dash and no plastic, only metal. The leather is superior quality. The sunroof is the entire roof! Awesome! 300 horsepower pins you to your seat and sounds so good. This car has everything. Ever the underside is completely covered with what looks like a solid wall to wall carpet for super sound and aerodynamics characteristics. Incredible! This car should probably cost twice what I paid for it! Wow! Is all I can say about this car. Edmunds saved me several thousand off the sticker price, too.

Best yet

After owning a 13 genesis coupe r-spec I was sold on Hyundai, I actually loved that car, had it for 3 years and then someone rear-ended me and car was totaled. Time for new car, I wanted something bigger as I'm getting older (37), plus I still have 06 gto, so genesis sedan was one of my choices, but after the test drive and going back and forth with the dealer about the out the door price, I walked out and saw a 13 cts coupe, which I always like the style of, and bought it, 4 months later I went back to the different dealer and cadillac was traded, as I hated that car, I know people still look at the brand names, and try to look down at the hyundai still, but I've test drove new cts, and genesis, done extensive research, and sorry but that cadillac cts has nothing on Genesis. One option that I liked more in the cadillac was the 2.0L turbo which gave you better gas mileage, other than that, seriously nothing. My genesis has a ultimate package, and amount of little things they packed into the car is mind blowing, I knew I don't like cadillac after few days, it's been 3 weeks since I own genesis, and Im just looking for driving it, it's that goood.

SImply Beautiful!!

I have been given many, many compliments on my Genesis. The beauty, the ride, you name it. This vehicle should be listed as a luxury sedan because it's not just any sedan. The drive is so relaxing while enjoying it's beautiful interior, the Genesis takes it to a whole new level. I'm looking forward to my second Genesis. Two thumbs up for the Genesis!!

Out with Hyundai, in with Genesis

Bought this car after seeing them on the freeway and after experiencing a test drive. Fit and finish is incredible and the look is unique enough to look classy and not boring like all the different variations of the Audi, BMW and Merc's. I am glad I opened my mind to something new and I have not been let down. Looking forward to any added benefits of the Genesis brand at regular Hyundai dealerships.

Awesome. Great for daily commuting purposes.

I love and read about cars like religion. I might now be able to buy a Series 7 BMW or an S class Mercedes, but I have had the luck of by chance landing in the cabin of this new Genesis 3.8 RWD. I have NEVER been a fan of Korean vehicles, but I take my hat off to the people who designed this vehicle. It is a lot of car for the money. It drives very nice, it has acceleration. I was able to purchase this vehicle thru a lease promotion and man am I happy I did. If this company has plans for keeping this vehicle as practical and refined as the one I own now in the future, then I will a loyal lease client for many years ahead.

Most comfortable and capable sedan I've ever had. This is the 3.8 AWD model with all options (Ultimate Package). We got the Genesis in late April 2016 and due to several unusual events have put quite a few more miles on it than I expected (8023 miles) . Many have been highway miles with Adult rear seat passengers on long trips in hot weather. That has given me a chance to really get a good feel for it's capability. I love this car, it's extremely quiet and comfortable for all occupants especially on long trips (over 900 miles in one day). The options work together extremely well and driver fatigue is a non-factor. The dual zone AC works very well for the passengers each can control the settings as they wish and the rear air is very effective in hot weather. The driver aids are spot-on, I love the adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection, the automatic and speed sensitive wipers, and we've use the Blue Link quite a bit. The ability to control the driver interface features (Nav, audio and media input) from both the console as well as the touch screen and many features from the steering wheel is very effective, I think it's a Genesis exclusive. Using regular gas and the multi-access driver interface (as well as the price) made the Genesis stand above the Lexus GS for me which was runner up. We've averaged about 24.7 mpg overall to date. I drove just about every vehicle in this class (much to my wife's annoyance) before I selected the Genesis and have absolutely no regrets. No maintenance history to report so far, just coming up to the first oil change. If your in the market for a comfortable large sedan you can't make a better choice than the Genesis.

Kudo's to Genesis!

I'm an admitted caraholic, having owned 6 cars in the last 7 years. The last car I owned was the 2012 Genesis 3.8 Sedan (a great looking car indeed, although not as refined as the new generation) and traded that in for a 2016 Genesis on a 36 month lease (mainly to keep me from changing cars every year). I literally did not even test drive the 2016 Genesis before I got it, but I did my research and I am 100% SATISFIED so far. I may even keep this one after the 3 year lease is up. It's that good! I got the black/black 3.8 V6 Ultimate package (that's fully loaded). Lease came in just over $500/month. I had the dealer re-badge the trunk with the Genesis "wing" emblem. Looks extremely sharp in my opinion. I'm also all about luxury and comfort and this is one area the Genesis excels in. The first time you sit in the contoured, leather seats, you're cradled by a multitude of support and comfort. Being tall, the leg extender gives me that extra few inches of support while driving that makes commuting much more enjoyable. I also love how the seat side bolsters contour to your exact preference. The controls and nav screen are all within reaching distance and easy to navigate (it's not too complicated but gets the job done). The trim and finish are spot on with Lexus and other luxury brands. The real wood is a beautiful touch. The driving experience is very quiet and you basically feel like you're driving on a cloud, easily gliding over most road bumps with little awareness of them being there. All in all the comfort factor in this car is top notch and makes commuting to work more enjoyable. I drive on ECO mode mostly and the gas mileage has been around 22MPG combined. The tech in this car is all you could ever want. I think the heads up display is spot on and of course the digital display on the drivers console is well illuminated and love the features and colors it offers. I use the cruise control quite a lot on commutes and LOVE the full stop/start up feature of cruise control. Basically this car has all of the key amenities I could ever want. I also have the BlueLink enabled, however I'm not 100% sold on it as I don't find myself using it all that much. The overall design of the car I think is uniquely Genesis and elegantly done. All in all if you're in the market for a luxury car you'll appreciate the features, sophistication and certainly the value that Genesis brings to the table.

Incredible car, comfort, value, styling

I've had over 30 cars since 1965, many brands, many models. In 1990, I test drove the Infinity Q45, I was so impressed with the Q45, I traded in my 1988 Cadillac Seville. Unfortunately 1990 was first and last year Infinity made that model with that horsepower. I have leased numerous cars since then, and have never enjoyed a car as much as that Q45, until I test drove the 2016 Hyundai Genenis Sedan. This Hyundai Genenis surpassed the Q45 I truly enjoyed, and delivers fuel economy that is unbelievable, and it runs on regular gas! The 500 series BMW is close to the comfort level of my Genenis, but for $20,000 more, its no contest. Hyundai is the definite winner in every category.

Have leased the car for about a month and driven it only about 500 miles. It is a big sedan, on the style of an S class or a 7 series, more than a sporty car. It is very comfortable and I really like the climate control and the optional seats with the cushion extender. The seating position seems low, having driven an SUV for the last 8 years. The belt line for the window ledges is high, like most modern cars. Acceleration and braking are excellent, even though this is the 6, not the 8. The suspension is very comfortable and more supple than I expected with the 45 series tires. The Signature package is a must, the sunroof and blind spot monitors make it a luxury car. I also got the tech package, but I'm not sure the leather upgrade and auto braking are worth it. Fit and finish is impeccable. I would be happier if it were somewhat smaller for maneuvering in the city. Definitely worth every penny. I can't comment on service, durability or such, because it's brand new.

"This is the 31st car I've owned or leased and I ALWAYS do extensive research. My Genesis 3.8 RWD can only be described as "Spectacular". If the Koreans built a Bentley, this would be it. I didn't opt for the V-8 since I've got a Corvette in the garage and don't plan on stop-light drag racing. Other than that my car has every option and is by far the most pleasurable car I've EVER driven. The sound system (also found in Rolls-Royce) is better than any I've ever heard in a car (or at home for that matter). I don't know what options could possibly be desired that aren't present in my car. Black Ash wood is utterly beautiful as is the ivory leather interior. Seats are better than any car I've driven including Volvo (which I would have rated the best previously). In GA we don't really need all wheel drive so mine is RWD. Performance, ride and braking are exceptional. The level of sound from outside is about non-existent. Benz & Lexus could learn from the sound-deadening techniques that were used on this car. The gas mileage is about what I'd expect from a 4100 pound car in town. On the freeway it's approaching 29 MPG. Dealer experience was also excellent - internet price quoted was right on the money with no nasty surprises when I went in to pick up the car. Genesis has hired the leading designers from both Lamborghini and Bentley this year. These guys are VERY serious about conquering the luxury market and the Genesis brand will be a force to be reckoned with both now and in the future."

By far the best value I could find

Owned the car since Oct. 15 (you said the 16 and 15 were alike) and very pleased with the purchase. Outstanding value when compared to C class Mercedes, 3 or 5 series Beemer, or the aging Lexus. Sold an Avalon which had given us superb service but the dealer service was deteriorating and I think the new Avalons are homely. The Genesis has excellent acceleration from 55-60 to 80 to get around on 2 lane roads, handling is good/adequate for a larger car and highway comfort approaches sitting in my living room. I think the trunk is a bit small and the automatic trunk opening doesn't always perform well. Gas mileage improved about 1mpg when broken in but you sure wouldn't buy it for economy although compared to the Infiniti and Maxima, you use regular gas vs. premium - big savings.

Nice car, feel I may have overpaid for a "Hyundai". Lots of bells and whistles. Nondescript design as I have lost it in a parking lot and confused it for Chyrsler 200.

Wow - What a Car

I have owned my Genesis for 14 months and still get excited every time I get behind the wheel. Before buying the Genesis I test drove the 5 series BMW and E Class Mercedes. They are very nice cars but didn't show me anything better than the Genesis even at the much higher price. The design, and quality of workmanship is excellent especially the interior comfort. There are many great standard features but I also choose to equip my car with the signature and technology packages which I recommend. The adaptive cruise and lane holding features are great for long trips but do take a little getting used to. The only con I can think of is the temperature control dial which is too small and sensitive to control. This car is very quiet, handles precisely and has smooth ride. Has to be the best value in a luxury sedan.

Great car!

I leased my Genesis 6 weeks ago on a very attractive 36 month/15K mile program. With dealer discount, competitive coupon and $3K lease cash, I was able to knock $7K off the $47K sticker price. Compared with Lexus or the Germans, an incredible value. Most of my research was online and via a major consumer magazine. My main focus in evaluating cars is value for the price, with safety, fuel economy, driving experience and luxury as secondary goals. Though I could afford it, I can't justify Lexus' price premium and don't dig the lack of driving dynamics. I'll never have another European car. So that leaves only a few choices. Coming from Acura, this is a real step up. Very impressive exterior styling, interior comfort, drivetrain, ride, handling and technology. For me, the 3.8 Tech is the sweet spot of price versus goodies. That last $3500 of MSRP for the Ultimate trim level did not make sense to me. My car had a serious fuel system issue at 225 miles that required 3 weeks to diagnose and fix. The dealer provided me with a brand new 2016 Genesis Tech as a loaner. Mine does seem fixed and it is hard to stay mad at this great car. I am glad it's a lease though. If I still love it in 2019, I can buy it for $25.5K plus tax. Pros: --Drop dead gorgeous on the outside --Serene and very lux on the inside --Major oomph in the V6, on regular gas no less --Decent fuel economy, 22 in mixed driving, high 20s pure freeway --Love love love the smart cruise--it starts and stops by itself in heavy traffic --Auto Hold is a cool feature --Autonomous Emergency Braking (see below), blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert --Comfy and very adjustable driver's seat with ventilated leather --Great color flat screen display and pleasing instrument cluster with nice switches on the steering wheel --Composed ride and predictable steering --Real-time traffic on the nav, essential for SoCal driving --Very good (though not great) Lexicon sound system --Big trunk Cons: --Ugly front grille --Autonomous Emergency Braking alerts too late --Horrible voice recognition --Wimpy steering wheel, should be thicker --Confusing controls and odd layout --Hyundai service department--it's not exactly a luxury experience --A new car should not have a fuel line/fuel pump failure at 225 miles! Overall, despite a bumpy start, the Genesis 3.8 RWD Tech sedan is the best and most refined car I've enjoyed in 40 years of driving.

Excellent car. 3.8 provides great acceleration. Transmission is smooth. Very quiet ride. Interior amazing and safety tech is excellent. Nit picking only real issues are the lack of a remote start on key fob (can pay for Bluelink service and use smartphone for remote start function) and the auto high beams need to be reset with each start up.

The Genesis runs smooth and quiet and a pleasure to drive. Definitely worth the money. However, the bells and whistles takes getting used to because the navigation is tricky , the side outside mirrors takes time to get used to, the dash board controls needs improvements. Before leaving the dealership you need a good lesson on learning the electronics.

I am a third time Hyundai owner (2012 Genesis 4.6, 2014 Equus Ultimate) and now 2016 AWD Genesis Ultimate. First Genesis was great, no issues, put 80k miles on it, Equus had some issues so traded in for the Genesis Ultimate. Bought white with black interior, windows tinted, car really looks hot. For the price after discounts, a compatible BMW 535 was $20k more, Lexus GS350 was $10k more; overall the Genesis has more features and drives similar to the others. Love the fact we may have CarPlay added and all of the toys are top notch. Starting car with the Apple Watch is fun and now you can turn off car as well with the app. Treated by dealership very well and they have always had nice loaners for me. Equus was a lot of fun, kids loved the TVs in back and the reclining sets, but mostly I am on the road for business so I find the drivability of the Genesis much sportier.

Extremely Happy With Choice

Owned a 2011 Sonata before this car. I was really happy with the entire Hyundai experience. The sales people were not overly aggressive, lots of car for the price, reliability has been fantastic... I wanted to "step up" my car game a little so it was not hard for me to try Hyundai again. I absolutely love the design of this Genesis. It's a luxury styled sedan but with some sporty stylings. The interior is fantastic. I am above average in height (6'3) and this interior leaves plenty of room for me. The seat adjustments are great. Most cars in this class are going 100% digital including the gauges but I don't mind the traditional ones here. They look fine and there is a nice LCD screen between them for additional information. The multi media head unit is a nice upgrade from where the Sonata was with a lot of features including Siri and Google. Bluetooth works flawlessly with my phone. The base model was loaded and is a great choice but i bumped it up to the Signature package which includes the panoramic roof which is very nice especially at night. All interior lights are now LEDs. Seats have heating and cooling. EDIT: Recently Hyundai made an upgrade available for Apple CarPlay which was not included when the car was originally purchased. I use Apple products so it was a nice free upgrade to get and was unexpected. It has worked flawlessly with my iPhone and does give me more features than before plus it does offer a lot more handsfree features. I love the little touches and attention to detail such as when you get out of the car at night the Genesis logo shines on the ground on either side of the car in LED lighting. Might sound dumb or pretentious but you know you would like that. As I am still learning all the tech I do have one con. The rearview camera. The quality is ok. Not the sharpest. It does have trajectory lines and even can turn down to look straight at the ground for that extra inch but for some reason there are no front or rear sensors on this model. You have to get the Ultimate package for that which I feel at this price point it should come included. I also agree with one of the other reviewers that it should include remote start (although I don't have much of need personally). Having to subscribe to Bluelink for that just seems like a bad move. Of course driving it is important too. I was surprised by the power of this car. It really does have some kick to it. The Sonata had fairly decent wind noise reduction but this is far superior. You can whisper in the car going 70 and hear a pin drop. Might not be the quietest overall but it is definitely the quietest car I've ever owned. Very smooth ride. It does not drive like a BMW but I like to drive luxury type vehicles in chill mode. Although I feel like it leaves just a few touches out from it's competitors, I feel like they will only get better as they transition into it's own brand and would recommend them to anyone. Hyundai has really made itself a real competitor.

Just moved to a Genesis after owning Infiniti. I think the Genesis is a better car than the Infiniti in just about every way, including the dealership experience, all at thousands of dollars less in cost. I managed to get my Signature edition for the price of a base model. Great ride, smooth transmission, plenty of power in the v6, very quiet, lots of headroom and legroom. The only nits I can pick are that the brakes are rather soft and need to be applied earlier, and the automatic windshield wiper goes way too fast for the amount of rain. Other than that I am simply loving this car. Get lots of looks and questions about what it is, especially since I changed out the Hyundai flying H badge on the trunk for a KDM Genesis wings logo in back.

Have had the car for just over one month with nothing but high praise for comfort, driving and handling (one snow storm with the AWD system and flawless). Everything is great, but the one thing that stands out is the quiet cabin. At a sustained 80 mph there's no wind or road noise to mention. The 311HP engine puts out more than enough acceleration and cornering is solid. The seats are extremely comfortable and there's ample head room in both front and back. If I had to pick one thing to complain about it's the headrest in the rear middle seat; it somewhat obstructs my view out rear view mirror. I'm sure the headrest comes out, but haven't felt the need to figure it out. My first Hyundai and definitely not my last.

Overall great car but ride not as serene as my Lexus. Reliability not as good as Lexus. Other Genisis owners have felt trade in values not as high as expected, especially when shopping for new model Genisis. I am waiting for 2017 G80 and G90 before deciding.

Not bragging but I've owned Porsche's, an Audi A6 & A8, 2 Benz S Classes and 4 BMW's. The thought of driving a Hyundai was the furthest thing from my mind until I started reading reviews. This car out-handles my S550 (AMG trim with 19" Pilot Sports) The technology package wows me. Filling up the 18 gal. tank with regular costs $30 compared to more than double that for hi-test in all previous vehicles. I suspect the Genesis engineers reverse engineered the car to mirror image the features of an E-S class Benz or 5-7 series Bimmer. Would I do it again? - you bet! Pros: ~ Costs less than half what a new S class would run me. ~ De-badged with the Genesis "wings" front & rear, looks like an Aston Martin or a baby Bentley. ~ Crazy good sound system that handles all medias including songs on my phone. ~ Handles very well - probably due to the shorter wheelbase! ~ Excellent fit & finish. Still not a rattle or squeak. ~ "Command" center very intuitive - better than most other high end vehicles. ~ HVAC system is outstanding. ~ Just feels, looks and drives like a fine automobile! Cons: ~ "A Pillar" is poorly engineered blocking visibility in front left ~ Slight hesitation in initial acceleration ~ Lane Adjust is over sensitive ~ Engaging the auto drive feature requires too many steps ~ Less storage room than I'm used to. ~ No active bolsters or massage in seats. ~ Fuel economy around town 17-19 mpg in AWD trim. (but regular gas) Highway jumps to 23+ ~ Motor lacks the ooomph and sound of the Benz 8 cylinder

Hyundai came a long way since their introduction of Genesis model and at some point they must have invested enough efforts to get it to stand out the way it does today. Genesis kept grabbing my attention on the roads in passing. I just couldn't look away trying to recognize and confirm if I was looking at Hyundai or some other super expensive brand. I eventually took the time to drive one and was instantly impressed. I've driven most luxury brands out there, owned an MB S550 and E550, BMW 750Li and 535i, and a Lexus LS430 and 460L, so the last thing I expected is to be captivated by design, feature set, or driving dynamics of a Hyundai. All that said, while not without cons the Genesis really stood out as a complete package in luxury sedan market with significantly lower price tag. I ended up buying a 2016 V6 with Ultimate package and so far I'm super happy with it. I can't comment re. reliability aspect as this is my first Hyundai and I only owned it for about 3 weeks and 800 miles now. I test drove the V8 as well and while its performance is very impressive I wasn't ready to sacrifice the MPG given that the V6, while won't leave you breathless, has plenty of power. Since for 2016 Hyundai also changed the Genesis emblem on the back (optional dealer installed feature for 2015) I have people approaching me on the daily asking what the make and model of this beauty is, confusing it with other badges :). So here goes the summary: Pros: Quiet and well handled ride. Very little road noise and nicely hushed wind noise. Very nicely controlled steering. Very well equipped with Signature Tech OR Ultimate packages with lane assist, adaptive cruise, and auto hold features that actually respond in a smooth and controlled manner unlike some other brands out there. Window shades on rear and side glass is a nice add-on. Very nice sounding stereo. Nicely laid out instrumentation and controls and very easy to use intuitive software (dash and main screens). VERY comfortable heated and cooled seats that adjust every way possible. Impressive fuel economy for a 311hp V6. I average 20-22mpg in mixed driving so far, and I'm on 'Normal' driving mode, which could improve with 'Eco'. Roomy Cabin with plenty of leg / head room even for taller individuals beyond 6'. Very cool looking and functional pano roof. Cons: Remote start available ONLY through Bluelink subscription is just dumb! Can't phrase it any other way, sorry. The feature should've been included on keyfob independent of any additional subscriptions as every mainstream (not luxury) vehicle offers it at this point. Side mirrors are mounted pretty high up and can block visibility into turns. It would be nice if the HUD could auto adjust its brightness for day/night operation. It's adjustable but not variable for day/night operation so I have to constantly adjust it. That's about it for gripes!

Watch out for Hyundia!

If you like Hyundia cars, beware of their practice of not pointing out how some of the features work. If you want remote start, understand that the only way to get it is through their 'Bluelink System". When you buy the car they give you 90 days of Bluelink for free. After that it cost over $300.00 a year to keep all of the functions active. There is the basic Bluelink connection, which reports on car status and tells Hyundia if the car is in an accident. Next there is your remote start capabilities and a couple of other functions you can do. Last there is the voice active navigation system. If you want the remote capabilities you pay $99.00 plus tax per year and if you want it to work then you have to pay another $99.00 plus tax per year for the basic package. The turn by turn voice activated navigation adds another $81.00 plus tax per year. I bought my Genesis in October and in November I was notified that there is an update to the on-board navigation system for $219.00 plus tax. I highly recommend that you read all of the fine print before you purchase any Hyundia.

Brand new Genesis

I took delivery of my new 2016 Genesis just three days ago so this is more about first impressions rather than a full review. Mine is the 3.8 with the Ultimate package, all the toys. The Genesis is a wonderful package of technology, safety, and quality wrapped in an easy to adjust package. The car drives and handles perfectly. The technology and safety features are what drew me to consider a Genesis. I came from a hybrid Toyota Avalon Limited that got great gas mileage, but was well behind the curve as far as technology and safety. Toyota does hybrid well, but I wanted features such as the dynamic cruise control, automatic emergency breaking, lane keeping assist, and so on. The Genesis delivers these, they work exactly as advertised and exude confidence when driving. The 9.2 inch screen for the nav system is as good as any I have seen on any car. I love the heads up display. The Lexicon sound system is far better than any I have heard. The only suggestion I could offer is to add a little more up-down range to the front power seats to make my wife a little happier.
