Kudos for quality
For 2013, the J.D. Power Initial Quality StudySM ranked the Genesis highest among all vehicles in the Midsize Premium Car segment. It’s both an honor and an accomplishment that we believe speaks volumes about our ideas, design and craftsmanship.
The Genesis 3.8L V6 offers plenty of power for making miles of interstate disappear or passing on two-lane roads. Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) is at the heart of this engine's ability to generate smooth, efficient acceleration.
Premium space, in abundance. That’s what you'll find inside Genesis sedan—Genesis has more interior volume than any other car in its class. So, go ahead, feel free to move around while you move down the road.
Smooth and Responsive
This 8-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission delivers smooth power and handles every driving situation with unobtrusive ease.
MANY ROADS TO POWER
Select from the 3.8L V6 and the 5.0L 429-hp V8. This high-performance V8 is at the heart of the Genesis 5.0 R-Spec, which offers more horsepower than the 2013 Lexus GS 350 and 2013 Mercedes-Benz E550.
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 an 8-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission that handles every driving situation with unobtrusive ease.
RESPECT THE 5.0 R-SPEC
For the R-Spec, we started with the high-performance 5.0L Tau V8, then added a sport-tuned suspension, 19-inch premium machine-finish alloy wheels. Distinctive headlights with dark chrome inserts plus R-Spec badging on the exterior of the vehicle and the floor mats complete the transformation.
HIGH-OUTPUT 3.8L V6
If having more standard horsepower than other luxury competitors’ V6 engines appeals to you, then read on. With 333 hp on tap, the Genesis 3.8L V6 offers plenty of power for making miles of interstate disappear or passing on two-lane roads. Once again, Gasoline Direct Injection is at the heart of this engine’s ability to generate smooth, efficient acceleration.

A LEADING EDGE THAT DRAWS ATTENTION
Unique LED headlight accents flank a large lower grille and sit above a substantial front bumper. The result gives the Genesis an aggressive look.

ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGY
An ultra-high-strength unibody, eight airbags and a full complement of advanced technology safety features help keep you secure on the road.
LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM
When vehicle speed exceeds 43 mph, this available driver assistance technology monitors the position of the vehicle in the lane. If the system detects movement out of the lane without use of a turn signal, a warning light and chime are activated, enabling the driver to reposition the car.
SMART CRUISE CONTROL
This feature removes much of the frustration when a car moves into your lane in front of you, forcing you to change your cruise control settings. When Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is engaged, the driver can select a distance to be maintained from the vehicle in front. A radar sensor is located in the front bumper to judge the distance of cars ahead. When it detects a vehicle, it automatically slows the Genesis down, then maintains speed to return to the preset distance between vehicles.
ADAPTIVE FRONT LIGHTING SYSTEM
See and be seen wherever you go. Brilliant features such as the Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFLS) increase visibility and safety. This system adjusts the path of the headlights to match the turning angle and direction of the vehicle for optimal illumination in turns.
