Hyundai Genesis Review: E-Class Challenger Or Pretender?

if You're Rolling Up To The Corridors Of Power In Canberra Your Luxury Ride Might Be The Patriotic Choice Such As A Holden Caprice Or It Might Be A Four-door From One Of The Ever-popular Germans Aldi BMW Mercedes, But You Probably Never Thought That It Could Be A Hugh And. I This Is The Genesis Without A Doubt The Korean Carmakers Most Ambitious Car Yet The Genesis Is Pitched As Being Similar In Size To A 7 Series, But Priced More Like A 3-series Starting From $60,000 Exactly We Reckon There's Also Significant Design Influence From The Main BMW S Aiming To Challenge The 5 Series The Profile Is Similar In Terms Of The Metal To Glass Ratio And The Chopped-off Nose Though The Rear Roofline Blends Into The Boot Lid To Create Less Of A Three Boxer Dance Silhouette You'll Also Notice Cleaner Body Servicing That Represents Human Dies Evolved Design Language Though It's Back To Boldness With The Big Hexagonal Grille Up Front There's Only A Bentley Esque Wing To Genesis Logo On The Bonnet However The Only Human Dive Badge On The Car Is Found On The Rear You Won't Find A Single H Logo Anywhere In The Cabin We're Not Sure, If The Company Doesn't Want To Remind You That You're Driving It Here And Die, But There's No Reason To Be Ashamed Yes The Cabin Design Is A Little Bit Luxury Car Generic And You Even Have Your Mandatory Analogue Clock, But There's Clearly Plenty Of Effort And Thought Has Gone Into The Choice Of Materials The Fit And Finish And The General Layout Of The Controls There's Some Really Nice Attention To Detail Because Of The Way That The Various Needed Bits And The, Buttons Are Damped And.

I Really Like This Bit OneTouch Power Windows That Look At The Way There's A Really Soft Soft Slow Close Ride At The End And That's For The Backseat Well That's Truly Generous In Terms Of Space And Comfort And That's Particularly Important, If You're Thinking Of Putting An HD Plate On The Car For A Car That Measures Almost 5 Metres Long Well That's Kind Of Expected However Would You Expect A Hindi To Drive Like An EClass Or 5 Series And. I Spent More Than A Year Honing Genesis For Aussie Roads Benchmarking The BMW For Body Control And The Mercedes For Ride Comfort There's Even Some Partial Input Into The Car From British Sports Car Make It Lotus Don't Get Too Carried Away With That Fact Because The Genesis Doesn't Venture Into Sporty Sedan Territory It Weighs Up To 2 Tons And It Never Really Disguises That Weight On The Road It Has To Be Coaxed A Bit Into The Corners As A Fair Amount Of Body Lean, But At Least Once You're Into The Corner The Car Feels Quite Nicely Poised And It's Not Ruffled By Mid-corner Bumps And Generally The Suspension Does A Really Good Job On Body Control Giving You A Little Bit Of Supplements On Country Roads Sitting On Just The Right Side Of Floatiness Roy Comfort Low It's Definitely At Its Smoothest On The Base And Mid Spec Models That Sit On 18-inch Wheels Things Get A Little Bit More Bumpy And Knobbly ER When You Go To The Bigger 19's As For The Steering Well It's More Accurate Than Your Average Here In. Iraq It's Not Bad At All, But, If We're Looking At Luxury Car Perfection It's Not Quite There The Electric Assistance Is A Little Bit Notchy.

So, It's Just Not As Smooth As You Would Like It To Be And Certainly Not As Smooth As The Steering And A 5 Series Or In Class Luxury Cars Usually Come With A Choice Of Engines, But For The Genesis There's Just One At Least In Australia With A V8 Available Only In Left Hand Drive Markets It's Left To A 3.8 Liter V6 That's Paired With Fuel Dies Own 8-speed Auto There Are Times When You Think That The V6 Would Benefit From Having A Turbocharger As Employed By Its Most Directivity Thought That The V6 Is Lacking In Performance Completely, But It Certainly Doesn't Feel Effortless All The Time Takes A Bit Of Time To Build Up A Head Of Steam It Prefers To Have Revs On Board And It Doesn't Help Fuel Economy An Official Figure Of Eleven Point Two Liters Per 100 Kilometers An Hour Does Look Poor On Paper When You Compare It With The Germans That Are Always Well Below Double Figures You Also Well It's Capable Of Delivering Smooth Imperceptible Shifts In Normal Driving, But It Doesn't Always Help Things In The Way That It's A Little Bit Slow To Kick Down At Times Not Always The Quickest To Pick A Lower Gear When You Hit An Incline, But At Least You Can Choose To Pick Your Own Gears A Flick Believer Across For A Manual Mode We've Got Pedal Shift Levers And Even A Sport Mode Press This, Button Let's Drop It Here And Certainly For A Winding Road You Do Want To Be Using The Pedals To Get The Right Gear And Also Two Whole Gears. So, You Can Listen To That V6 Which Was Cut A Lovely Growly Character All You Notice Even When You Are Revving That Engine Out It Doesn't Spoil The Quietness Of This Cabin There's Really Impressive Refinement On The Genesis Even Though Our For The Fact That This Top Spec Car That We're Driving Has Special Acoustic Glass That Ultimate Pack Is An $82,000 Proposition However And That's A Big Price Tag For A Hyundai Even, If The Equivalent German Could Cost Tens Of Thousands More The Sensory Pack Version That Cost Seventy One Thousand Is Tempting For Its Head-up Display Around View Monitor And Also The Extendable Driver Seat Squab That's Better At Supporting Your Legs Over Long Trips Otherwise The Base Model Looks Like A Sweet Spot In The Range Because It's Already Superb Leah Quipped We'll Need A Few More Minutes Of Video To Cover Off The Lengthy List, But The Big-ticket Items Are Autonomous Emergency Braking Automatic High-beam Dipping A Nine Point Two Inch Touchscreen With Sat-nav And Excellent Lexicon Audio System With 17 Speakers And Radar Cruise Control That Can Drive The Car In Stop-start Traffic And, If That's Not Enough Not Only Do You Get A Five-year Warranty Hyundai Also Throws In Five Years Of Free Servicing Into The Ownership Mix. So, Here In Dies Large Sedan Doesn't Really Move The Game Forward For Luxury Cars In The Way That It Drives, But It Certainly Does In The Way That It Costs Relatively Little To Buy And Own And, If You're In The Market For An Executive Car Bargain Rather Than Looking For A Certain Badge Well You Just Might Want To Consider Ticking Vote One For The Genesis Candidate You.
