2009 Hyundai Genesis V6 Sedan: Happy Belated 20K Milestone

November 23, 2009


Oops! Our 2009 Hyundai Genesis V6 sedan quietly passed it's 20,000th birthday, but we didn't so much as buy it a card.

Sorry about that.

The Genesis crossed this threshold a week or so before it's 10-month anniversary, so it stands a good chance of eclipsing 24 or 25 thousand miles before its year is up, especially with the holidays coming up. This comfortable cruiser is sure to be on the short list of those with long year-end drives.

So far, the big Genesis sedan has lived up to EPA MPG expectations, achieving a 21.2 mpg lifetime average over that distance. The EPA combined rating is 21 mpg. It's best single tank of 28.5 mpg bests the EPA highway rating of 27 mpg.

Can it do better on a long holiday drive? We'll find out in a few weeks.
