2016 Hyundai Genesis Overview

More than anything else, the Hyundai Genesis brings a lot of core value to the line. It represents Hyundai's first entry into the luxury market segment, and its past successes have led to increased production and demand for the four-door Genesis.

2016 Hyundai Genesis History

Since the first-generation Genesis, Hyundai has taken excellent strides building a competitive luxury sedan. The 2016 Genesis has kept features consistent since the 2015 redesign.

  • The Hyundai Genesis was introduced in 2008.
  • The fully-equipped Ultimate trim level is now available, replacing the options package of the same name.

How It Drives

The Genesis's steering is far better than expected and has motor assist that feels like it could translate to a sportier luxury car. The brake pedal may be undertuned for quick city stops, but overall, the vehicle is athletic. It's sports Continuous Damping Control air suspension, which can be toggled from Normal to Sport mode to filter out rough patches of road.

Used 2016 Hyundai Genesis Value

The Hyundai Genesis is built with a lot of value even at the base level. It has everything you could ask for in a large luxury sedan - for frequent highway and city drivers. The Genesis is a dynamic, performance car to drive, yet it's still quiet on most roads. With an ideal mix of style and comfort, it's an affordable, entry-level luxury sedan with refined style and a feature-rich cabin.

Design & Performance

In terms of design, it's easy to see the Hyundai Genesis take inspiration from other luxury vehicles, especially on a used car lot. It has the sleek, low-hanging body design that mimics many of its competitors. And when it comes to overall performance, this vehicle brings both power and fuel efficiency to the Hyundai lineup. It has two engine options:

  • The base-level V6 engine
  • The more powerful V8 engine

The Genesis makes an effort to make its powerful engines more fuel-efficient, but stops short of using hybrid technology to do it - providing value in this car is its main focus. The V6 earns 18 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. The V8 option does a little worse at 15 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

Furthermore, this car is surprisingly quick for its size. As a large sedan, it may feel a bit large and gangly to drive, so it may not be the perfect car for you if you're looking for more maneuverability.

Powertrain & Engine

The base 3.8L V6 engine cranks out 311 horsepower, while the 5.0L V8 engine pumps out 420. The V8's acceleration is much stronger than the standard option. Furthermore, the V8 engine revs just a little more triumphantly than the V6 can. Each engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic. Though it's clearly not a sports car, this Hyundai vehicle is built with rear-wheel drive to add a bit of athleticism to the standard architecture. All-wheel drive is also an optional swap-in.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The Hyundai Genesis balances a delicate dichotomy: it needs to blend in with the other luxury cars, but stand out against other Hyundai vehicles. The result is that it takes design inspiration from competing luxury dealers like Lexus, Infiniti, and Audi, while adding a bit of Hyundai flair to the mix. On a lineup level, the Genesis's look hasn't changed since its jump to the second generation.

  • The Genesis doesn't have the Hyundai badge on the front of a car, just a Genesis insignia.
  • The 2016 model of the Genesis has a streamlined roofline and grille compared to its first-generation predecessor.
  • Details are sharp and straight rather than curved.
  • The body is built with stronger material.

The interior of the Hyundai Genesis has been updated to look a lot more attractive, more thoughtfully designed, and to be quite spacious after its 2015 redesign.

  • Though the cabin is technically smaller than the first-generation Genesis, it has been organized to allow more room for the front row.
  • Despite its many features, the cabin technology is user-friendly.
  • The cabin material is built with high-quality materials and filters out a lot of external noise.

This car is so comfortable and good on the road. These is a lot of power and style with this car. People confuse it for Bentley's. The acceleration and drive is so smooth and quiet and if you accelerate the car literally launches 0-60 in no time. This car has a lot of space in the back and entertainment for kids or adults.
