A striking design that looks superb in any light. New exterior features include headlight LED accents and daytime running lights plus power-folding side mirrors with convenient approach lights.
New rear design.
Considering all of the power that its engine generates, this is a view of the Genesis most of the world will remember. Here, you will notice new tail lights and dual exhaust tips that are integrated into a design that adds a sleek finishing touch.
The sound of the 3.8L V6 engine has been muted by a maintenance-free, steel silent timing chain. Sound dampening innovations like these make for a quieter cabin. Perhaps we should make some noise for our team of accomplished acoustic engineers.
Comfort that transcends the journey and helps you arrive refreshed starts with a heated and cooled driver seat and heated front and rear passenger seats.
See and be seen wherever you go. Advanced technology features, such as Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) with LCD cluster display and Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFLS) increase visibility and safety.
Advanced active safety.
These safety systems monitor key dynamic inputs every microsecond you drive to help you avoid problems. Every Genesis is equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist.
Two new Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engines include a 3.8L V6 and a 5.0L 429-hp V8 that has more horsepower than the 2011 Lexus GS 460 and 2011 Mercedes-Benz E550.
This high-performance V8 is at the heart of a new Genesis model—the 5.0 R-Spec.
8-speed automatic transmission.
In just a few years, Genesis engines have received awards and acclaim for their design, power and sophistication. And now these engines are matched with a new 8-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission that handles every driving situation with unobtrusive ease.
The Genesis 5.0 R-Spec.
For this new model, we started with the award-winning 5.0L Tau V8, then added a sport-tuned suspension, 19-inch premium machined finish alloy wheels and tires. Distinctive headlights with dark chrome inserts plus R-Spec badging on the exterior of the vehicle and the floor mats complete the transformation.
