What's New for 2012

The 2012 Hyundai Genesis receives a midcycle refresh that includes revised front and rear styling, an eight-speed automatic transmission and a new "R-Spec" trim level that comes with a bigger V8 engine, 19-inch wheels and performance-oriented transmission, suspension and steering calibrations. The Genesis 3.8 (that would be the V6 model) gets a 43-horsepower boost this year, increasing output to an impressive 333 hp.


Even in the luxury sedan segment, there are plenty of people who like acting on a good value proposition. For them, one of the more intriguing choices in the past few years has been the Hyundai Genesis. As with other luxury sedans, the Genesis has a strong engine lineup, a spacious cabin, a long list of luxury features and excellent build and materials quality. Yet the Genesis also costs thousands less than the typical BMW or Lexus, thereby making it a pretty popular choice.
For 2012, the Hyundai Genesis receives a minor styling refresh (LED headlight accents, new taillights) and a big increase in the Genesis 3.8's output -- its V6 now makes an impressive 333 hp. Hyundai will also introduce a new R-Spec model. The latter features a thumping 429-hp V8 along with transmission, steering and suspension calibrations geared toward driving enthusiasts. Between the two sits the Genesis 4.6 with its 385-hp V8. Not only smooth and potent, these powerhouses are also quite fuel-efficient given their output and the car's size.
Unchanged is the Genesis' pampering attitude toward those within. In addition to its elegant design, abundance of space and plush ride, the Genesis offers its passengers something increasingly rare in today's world -- a tranquil environment. All the better to enjoy the comfortable seats and available 17-speaker Lexicon surround-sound audio system.
Considering its price and non-premium badge, the Genesis would seem to compete with full-size sedans like the Buick LaCrosse, Chrysler 300, Ford Taurus and Toyota Avalon. Yet it's actually more of a bargain-priced rival to considerably more expensive cars like the Infiniti M, Lexus ES or GS, or even the German midsize luxury models. True, there are a few downsides, such as the lack of available all-wheel drive or a fold-down rear seat. But the biggest obstacle for the Genesis is likely whether customers can get over the humble badge on its deck lid.
