What's New in the 2015 Hyundai Genesis?

Hyundai has fully redesigned the Genesis this year, keeping the previous model's engines but overhauling just about everything else. 

Which Genesis is the Best?

We like the whole Genesis lineup, from base 3.8 to fully loaded 5.0 Ultimate. The former delivers full-size luxury at the price of a small European sport sedan, while the latter nips at the heels of BMWs and Benzes. This Hyundai is a real contender. Find a Hyundai Genesis for sale


How Much Does a 2015 Hyundai Genesis Cost?

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan is offered in three trim levels that correspond to powertrain choice: 3.8, 3.8 AWD and 5.0.

The Genesis 3.8 ($38,950) comes remarkably well equipped right out of the box, boasting standard luxuries such as 18-inch alloy wheels, dual power-folding heated mirrors with Genesis-logo-adorned puddle lamps, an electroluminescent gauge cluster with a 4.2-in, thin-film-transistor (TFT) screen, wood-grain accents, dual-zone automatic temperature control, leather upholstery, 12-way power heated front seats with lumbar adjustments, a 7-speaker audio system with Bluetooth streaming audio and an 8-in touchscreen interface with a navigation system and a rotary controller on the center console.

The Genesis 3.8 AWD ($41,450) adds all-wheel drive, headlight washers, heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel.

The Genesis 5.0 ($52,450) reverts to rear-wheel drive but throws in a slew of upgrades, including 19-in alloy wheels, xenon headlights, LED fog lights, quad exhaust tips, a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, a power rear sunshade, a larger 7-in TFT screen between the gauges, matte-finished wood interior trim, premium leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, an electronic parking brake, a 16-way power driver's seat with adjustable side bolsters and a cushion extender, driver memory settings, a power adjustable steering wheel and a 14-speaker Lexicon surround-sound audio system.

Many of the 5.0's standard features are available on the 3.8 models via the Signature and Tech packages, though be advised that if you add both (the latter requires the former), it'll pump up the price by a whopping $7,500. The 3.8 Ultimate package tacks on a heads-up display, a 9.2-in HD touchscreen, 17-speaker Lexicon audio, a carbon-dioxide sensor with automatic air circulation and a power trunk lid. The 5.0 Ultimate package starts with the 3.8 Ultimate package's features and adds exclusive adaptive dampers.

Trunk capacity in the 2015 Genesis is a generous 15.3 cu ft. Notably, the Ultimate package's power trunk senses when you're standing behind the car with the key fob and automatically opens after three seconds. It's a neat feature when your hands are full.

2015 Hyundai Genesis vs the competition

BMW 5 Series -- Although the 5 Series has a tighter back seat and costs more when similarly equipped, some will contend that it's worth the premium price.

Cadillac XTS -- If you're looking for a classic American highway cruiser, the XTS delivers, and its available twin-turbo V6 adds some serious motivation.

Lexus LS -- Check out the LS' features and specs compared to the Genesis 5.0. The Hyundai has more power and comparable content for a whole lot less coin.
