Hyundai Genesis Overview

Hyundai's upscale sedan is impressive for the price, delivering virtually everything a $50,000 sedan does, but for $10,000 less. The refined V6 delivers quick acceleration and gets 22 mpg overall with the eight-speed automatic. The optional V8 is nice, but doesn't really improve upon the V6's performance. Handling is responsive, but it isn't in the category of a true sports sedan. The ride is a bit fidgety for this class. The interior is very quiet and well finished, with a very hospitable rear seat. Controls are simple except in up-level versions, which include a multifunction controller. A redesign arrives this spring, and will include an all-wheel drive version.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
