A few years after the revision of the model and evolution, the Genesis sedan is back for the second generation. However, unlike “The next Karate Kid” or “The Karate Kid” (2010), restart the computer is better than the original. Car gives much more of everything we love about the original, with some intelligent surprises here and there. The sedan is also more attractive than ever, with an exterior design new and bolder more convenient that the goal. When it comes to advanced, Hollywood could learn a thing or two from this 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan 3.1.
The heart of the sedan Genesis carrying mostly unchanged for the year 2015. Remains the engine of Tau V-8 5.0 liter direct injection of the R-Spec model in 2014. It was coupled with an automatic transmission in eight-speed rear wheel drive configuration. However, sedan of the genesis by 2015 3.1 nominal 383 horsepower and 420 lb ft of torque. It is less than 1 horsepower of an old R-Spec, but 18 ft-lbs on regular fuel.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Transmission
The eight-speed Shiftronic automatic transmission is that the best slushboxes on the market with a smooth and quick changes of sand but some very good intelligence on equipment selection. The computer takes into account when going up or down, if you are braking hard into a corner, or if you are crossing the road and seems to avoid calculation and check that it haunts many autoboxes hunting. There is also a manual mode with the standard paddle shifters for those times where you want to make the relationship to choose for himself.
How many new vehicles, the 2015 General opted to “smart drive mode”, which allows the rider to choose between Normal, Eco fashion and sports with the touch of a button. Select one or the other adjusts the response of the throttle, effort of the helm of electric power-assisted steering, change program and some other attributes of the vehicle at the same time. If Genesis is equipped with an Adaptive suspension “Damping CGM”, as our example, modes of transmission are adjusted, too. On the road, the Genesis feels heavy, but so appropriate. Even with the sleep mode and its cruise ship ground pound 4541 sports will never be a dancer, but take your time, no matter how hard to throw, it really is another point.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Engine
Like the chassis, the engine also feels strong, but heavy. V-8 available pair of point bass in the band of power, which is good because the Powertrain to build steam time before was evident. Imagine a power point instead of hitting crack is the neck. Give, it’s time to construct the combination of steam engine gearbox and they will hum along happy and calm in laws of speed of road without much, if any, effort.
Even with direct injection, Eco mode is involved and the equipment is more advanced than any car you not led probably the laws of physics never, not be overcome. 5.0 liters of displacement and 4500-plus kilogram mass conspire to the sedan’s saddle with city 15 dear EPA, 24 and 18 combined mpg highway. On the one hand, I am sure that no one cared about the fuel economy, the large sedan, Cruz V-8-go shopping. On the other hand, Hyundai matches almost efficiency of 2014 Lexus LS 460, but fell behind V-8 engines turbocomprimidas BMW 550i and Audi A8.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Machines
Like the previous generation, Genesis 2015 also remains available with the V-6 3.8 l Lambda of basic machines. Efficient V-6 hits 18 cities, 29 Highway and 22 combined in Exchange for reducing peak power and torque output. Interestingly, V-6 power events is also available on the back of the second and, for the first time, Hyundai HTRAC all-wheel drive. All the features of 2015 Genesis sedan rear camera system come standard, but our top-of-line model 5.0 is close to full packed with security technologies.
There is a game camera track system that vibrates the steering wheel when the vehicle inadvertently entered the runway without warning signs. It is linked in the system helps keep the lead can use electric power steering to keep the position of the car between the marker. There are three settings for the line system that could intervene once he crossed the line, pre-emptively to keep it online, or not at all. I believe that the sense of the preventive intervention similar to the system that has been tested by 2015 the Acura MDX, which can be awkward when you feel that your steering system helps to as you are in a bend in the road. Also standard on 5.0 is the blind spot monitoring and rear and front, sensors of distance with the rear cross-traffic.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Entertainment System
Hyundai Genesis is a heterogeneous group. The first major effort, no doubt, but with any kind of well, Genesis, there are the debilidades-informacion and entertainment system and some materials, for example. To create the second generation model, the Hyundai pays much attention to these shortcomings while wisely decided to keep the most important power of the original model: with the V8 5.0 liter. rocket of the old R-Spec Genesis new 420 horsepower was appointed the principal engine for this model is upgraded, 2015. Hyundai had dismantled rear sedan full first, and while it can use an older machine V8 but impressive, 5.0 liter is a not-so-big story this time. This is because it is now encapsulated in a package that is much better, like last week at the steering wheel.
Hyundai designers have matured Genny, opting for significantly more prominent plate of this new iteration. The old car, showing a box-shaped of three which is more traditional, while cars are more open about designs of the drive from the rear, length of the hood and short rear deck that feeds on the back window of the aggressive rake. A vertical front fascia, with a broad, brittle style of grille and headlights in the form of almond, clean and elegant while still comes out as a kind of conservative. Back, Hyundai has something similar to the old pattern of sweeping headlights, fluidic, participate, while the V8 model was the home of the sport exhaust bumper, quad staggered.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Overall Improvement
That said, an update of the overall improvement overshadowed by the outside located in the cabin. Genesis has an interior that adapts tag price, thanks to Matt natural wood – look setting band on the dashboard, with aluminum accents. Plastic flooring upper and lower punches, but the quality is better or worse of what you’ll find in competitors from Germany. However, while the cabin certainly felt much better than the last generation model, there are still some shortcomings.
The skin of the standard “ultra premium” in broad seats, support 5.0 and while it looks very, very good, we see that even with less than 8000 miles on the clock, the usual parade of dresses of denim auto journalists began to stain the driver side of the pillow – something that we noticed during testing during the year of the Hyundai Equus larger. In addition, Hyundai did not bother to load the skin is nicer on the wheel of Genny, choosing materials that seemed more suitable for a vehicle negotiating spirit. However, ignore two subtleties, and the interior is a great place for drivers. After a week of driving, we are glad to inform that the driver 4-way will be comfortable, the longest transport. Visibility, however, is very good, thanks in large part to the relatively low belt drive.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Package
Only the choice of the Verifier is the final package $3,250, which adds continuous control of damping, heads-up display (that detail in the video below), giant system 9.2 inch touch screen navigation, lexicon 5 stereo speakers and power trunk. It is also the list standard equipment impressive 5.0, which includes a panoramic roof, front seats with heating/ventilation, HID, adaptive cruise control headlamp, all the latest and largest security features (blind spot with cross-traffic alert, warning an exit, the lane assist lane sustenance and emergency braking) and a beautiful matte wood mouldings.
For this review, we have been a fan of Hyundai Motor 5.0 liter V8, 420 horsepower and eight connected automatic speeds. Along with 383 pounds feet of torque and rpm redline 6500 sound, which we find that this machine again is going to be fun. This is a very desirable out of the wound and was very good in the process, in relation to the rival Turbo wooshiness Germany. But with the maximum at 5000 rpm, landed torque we need to deepen even more acceleration than Teutonic factory, which boasts peak torque large, under which makes getting up and going to the relatively carefree. Genesis Accelerator never feel enough, also. It was a strange contrast characteristics motor revvy as slow throttle response. But it is not too unpleasant. In any case, serves as a reminder that while the Genesis V8-powered was indeed a fast car, not a sport sedan.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Manual Mode
The eight-speed automatic, fired a quick system, both in automatic and manual mode while it spent little time hunting in reductions. This is less of one problem when we move a shovel, however. Considering that a BMW 550i sedan starts at $10000 where we Genesis 5.0 tops out. Two years ago, for purposes of comparison, but this incident is much more suitable for the class and 5 series, Mercedes-Benz and Audi A6 that nobody in Germany will probably want to admit. My biggest complaint with the previous incident is the lack of stability at high speeds–up to highway speeds–and the address is too sensitive. Basically the kind of convincing impression of sedan from Germany which collapsed shortly after this car more than 40 km/h, this is not so new. It is very stable at speeds and offers the highest confidence in increasing the speed of best tuned Autobahn vehicles.
Thanks to the Tau V8 engine is very entertaining, the incident has no problem in getting the speed and make a wonderful roar on the way there. Change is happening, but not in any way show (except by pressing the sports mode, when the car keeps the teeth again) and the experience of luxury sports sedan full right… in at least until a need to stop. Brakes aren’t bad, but there’s a long pedal travel and events that are really not bite until the bottom half, leading to some drama early.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Elements
The Interior also lived to their facturacion-si, the ingredients of skin luxury cars and a soft touch is everywhere, but most important was silence. It was quiet in the Genesis; Hyundai was sealed out noise from the road, ban, wind, noise, even with the hood sunroof noise open. Once again, however, there is an element that does not fit: the dial for the Infotainment System (version of Hyundai’s iDrive button) looks good, but it is a plastic molded breath feel cheap to the touch. Hyundai will spend so much time, energy and money on all interior surfaces and provide that such contact point of critical quality econobox is annoying.
However, it is here: killer Hyundai giant with luxury sedan that many had predicted. It came in the form of source and not first class Equus quite surprising, but the question that Korea can go head to head with Germany and Japan has become irrelevant. Please note that I am not suggesting the incident actually is going to kill one of these giants of the market; You can take another generation or two until consumers embraced fully Hyundai luxury car. But if Hyundai can leave, consumers are obliged to know how good the event.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Style
This is a stylish sedan, very quickly. Also a very quiet at all speeds. The Interior looks like… – good quality, well organized, be comfortable, easy. 420 horsepower V8: I remember as a child my family dealer Dodge Plymouth Hemi Cudas and charger and such has 425 horsepower, a prominent figure in those days, the magic number for us children; and here is this sedan with a damn close to it. The power is smooth and displacement is not visible. The chassis is solid as a rock and the car crossed the Detroit Street discreetly and without problems. Driving this car is soothing and sometimes after a long day, which is what you need.
I cannot agree with the above that “may” be happy buying a car of this type of buyers. I think that definitely that group. No maybe about it. This may be small now, but it is growing and will continue to. Yes, the BMW 550i starts $10000 in the upper part of the car, the Mercedes-Benz E550 $6000. You can’t get a Cadillac CTS or the Audi A6 with the V8, but syndrome carpal tunnel with twin – turbo V6 starts at $5 1000 more. This is the business of Hyundai suction, in other words. But, ultimately, it is more than that. This is a good car, point.
2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Power
Apparently some thought 2,250 enough events that I bought one last month. – and that the old model, with induction of siesta sheet metal and interior are also boring. How much is this in a way different, fully dressed and full of the power of the V8 (North with a sticker of $50 000), it is difficult to analyze sales data provided by our sister pub, it Automotive News; Whatever it takes, that represents almost half as much roast as the Audi A6 or the S6 can boast of the Lexus GS. After buying public gets a load of this incident, I hope that the Mercedes-Benz E – class (almost 4900 units sold in September) will be a true competitor to the hand. Or don’t underestimate the swing has to see more people, to be able to say, “push the Benz” is more important that the actual experience of driving a Benz says for many people. Perhaps the most.
