The 2015 Genesis sedan is all-new, inside and out. The cabin is roomier, and there are new infotainment options and an easier way to use them. Also, the engines have been updated for better low-end torque and improved fuel economy. All-wheel drive is available for the first time.

The big news for the 2012 Hyundai Genesis sedan is the introduction of the 429-horsepower 5.0 R-Spec sport sedan. The Genesis R-Spec features a sport suspension, transmission and steering calibrations, as well as unique 19-inch alloy wheels and dark chrome headlamp inserts. Also new is an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is standard on all trims. All Genesis sedans receive a mild exterior freshening. The 3.8-liter V6 engine gains direct fuel injection, which helps give it 333 horsepower, up from last year's 290.

Changes for 2011 are limited to the 4.6 model, which gains an additional 10 horsepower, a faster zero to 60 time (5.3 seconds vs. 5.7 seconds) and the addition of last year's Technology Package – navigation, Lexicon 7.1 Discrete surround sound audio, adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlamps, heated and cooled front seats, front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera – as standard equipment.

About Hyundai Genesis

The 2015 Genesis sedan is Hyundai's 5-passenger competitor for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 and Lexus GS. With an elegant, modern look, more luxury and a new attitude, the all-new Genesis – now available with all-wheel drive on V6 models – is even better equipped to go up against these midsize luxury powerhouses than the first generation was. There is a strong emphasis on connectivity and infotainment, which should appeal to a younger affluent audience. What may be most impressive about the new Genesis, though, is the amount of standard equipment you get for a notably lower price than its competitors – and even if you check every options box, the car is still a relative bargain.

"Own AWD with base options and can't find any fault in the car. Have had Acura TL, Lexus GS, and Infiniti G37 and I would choose this car over those in a heartbeat. Drives really smooth and has a plenty of HP to speed up when needed, and has a decent mpg. Interior-wise, can fit two baby car seats in the back with a plenty of room and has a very, very quiet cabin space."

"I bought one of the first ones in 2008 and loved everything about it - handling, feel, look, etc. For those first few months had people asking me at stoplights "what kind of car is that?" Although the Dealer kept after me, I was never interested in a newer one until this 2015 body style change. So, I've had this one since May and it's still perfect! More comfortable, more luxurious and the electronics are first rate. Very slightly slower off the line, but I'm not buying a sports car. Don't know when the next model change may occur, but I'm in this one until then!"
