2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 8A)


I have owned my 5.0 R-Spec for 10 months and
the car lives up to everything Hyundai said the car would be.
There are reviews out there
giving the car a medicore rating. I completely disagree with them.
The interior is well thought out and the leather is of a high quality.
All of the instruments and navigation systems are easy to use.
The engine is very responsive and will pin your back into the seat when floored.
Cornering is improved with the upgraded suspension.
Overall the ride is quiet and comfortable.
The Genesis is very sporty for a luxury car though it is not a true sports car. The Genesis is more of a luxury car and a muscle car combined.
Still makes me smile!

Best Features

The 429 horsepower engine

Worst Features

Needs a sport mode for the gear box. The drivers seat is airconditioned but not the passenger's seat.
