If the 2009 Hyundai Genesis was a shot across the bow of Lexus and
Infiniti, then the 2015 Genesis 5.0 is a torpedo hit below the water. While
BMW and Mercedes didn't seem overly concerned about the last generation
Genesis, this 2015 model should make them very worried indeed.
From the outside, the Genesis (in all trims) strikes most of the right
cords with luxury shoppers that prefer flowing lines to sharp creases.
While previous products from Korea have been more imitation than
innovation, the Genesis both deviates from the theme yet clearly draws
inspiration from the rivals.
Of course the ultimate question is: can Hyundai convince luxury car buyers
that they can get most of the same goodies on a $50K Hyundai as a $70K
German or Japanese sedan? Even if that hurdle can be jumped, will the brand
conscious think twice? To those adventurous car shoppers who manage to look
beyond brand perception, they will find a car maker with the best warranty
in the industry making reliable cars with a dollop of style and a 'whole
lotta' value. What kind of buyer are you? Are you buying that LS460 because
it carries a $70,000 price tag, or because you like the way it coddles you?
Are you buying the BMW for the roundel or for the 0-60 time? I would posit
the Hyundai does all the above minus the badge. As a result the Genssis is
my new favorite car for 2014.
2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the all new 2012 Hyundai
Genesis 5.0 R-Spec. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine

acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2012 HYUNDAI GENESIS R-SPEC vs. 2012 CHRYSLER 300 SRT8
long story short - the SRT8 is the better performer and the R-Spec is the
better everyday driver's car.
While the Genesis costs $47,000, gets better fuel economy and will save you
more over the term of ownership, the SRT8 justifies it's $55,000 price tag
with more features and moar power!!!

2012 HYUNDAI GENESIS R-SPEC
This is a video review of the 2012 Genesis R-Spec.
The Genesis R-spec is the cheapest "luxury" full sizer you can buy, but,
it's performance pales in comparison to the 300c SRT8 and Charger SRT8.
However, with the ability to use regular unleaded and get over 18mpg
combined, the less-expensive R-spec makes a compelling argument over buying
the SRT8 model. Unfortunately, there isn't much here to justify buying an
R-Spec over the 4.6-liter version of the Genesis.
2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec Test Drive & Luxury Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/genesis/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Hyundai
Genesis Sedan R-Spec is a real screamer. With a Direct Injection 5.0 liter
V-8 engine, the Genesis R-Spec cranks out 427 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of
torque. This power is channeled through an 8-speed transmission. Fuel
economy remains respectable with the Genesis R-Spec netting 16 MPG in the
city and 25 MPG on the highway.
There are many nice refinements and changes on the 2012 Hyundai Genesis
R-Spec. The chrome grille features color matched accents and the headlights
have a really cool line of LED lights. The Genesis R-Spec rocks huge
19-inch wheels with high performance tires. On the inside the Genesis
R-Spec is all luxury and technology. Hyundai used the finest materials and
the Blue Link System keeps you up to date on with all the modern technology
bells and whistles. Furthermore the sound system on the 2012 Hyundai
Genesis 5.0 R-Spec comes from Lexicon, the company that also makes sound
systems for Rolls Royce.
The 2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec costs $46,500. And for that price you
get a fully loaded luxury car with leather, navigation, the big engine, and
the 8-speed transmission just to name a few. Most other luxury cars start
at this price for the base model. Oh and don't forget about the 400+ horsepower!
