Introduction

I purchased the car new in October of 2012.

Reviewed: 2012 Hyundai Genesis

4dr Sedan 333-horsepower 3.8L V6 8-speed shiftable automatic RWD

Why the 2012 Hyundai Genesis?

Exterior styling

great looking car from all angles. I get many compliments from strangers.

Interior styling

very well laid out. More room than any other car I have driven in at least a decade.

Color choices

I wish there were as many choices for exterior and interior colours as there are in the USA or other countries.

Powertrain performance

V6 has all the power that I need and then some. I was pleasantly surprized at how much power it has. The fuel mileage is quite good for a car of this size, or even cars smaller.

Handling

Handling is quite good and over all ride comfort is very good.

Why Not the 2012 Hyundai Genesis?

Safety & braking

very strong brakes. Lots of safety features. I feel safe and comfortable driving in this car.

Quietness

very little road or wind noise.

Tires

My car came with Michelin tires which are very quiet, comfortable, handle well and contribute to the excellent gas mileage.

Front seat room

I am 6'3" and have more than enough head and leg room. Front seat width room is great

Front seat support & comfort

very comfortable even on a 4hr drive.

Other Features of the 2012 Hyundai Genesis

Driving position & visibility

For my height I have a great driving position and excellent visibility.

Rear seat room & comfort

I have been told by all my rear seat passengers that the room is more than adequate very comfortable. The rear seat heaters and rear window sunshade are a pleasant plus.

Cargo capacity

best cargo capacity this side of a SUV or minivan

Controls and instruments

well laid out controls and instruments.

Audio & nav systems

great sounding audio system but can be a bit problematic. My head unit was replaced once under warranty due to failure.

Conclusion

Over all a very good car. I consider it a very good value and I would not hesitate purchasing another in the future.
