2011 Hyundai Genesis Sedan

2011 Hyundai Genesis Review

(4 Stars)  Close to beating Infiniti and Lexus

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Hyundai Genesis has brought a very positive boost to the Hyundai brand and the new lineup of powerful full sized sedans have made the Hyundai company much more than an economy car maker in the public's eyes. This is a change that has been long in the making and finally has come to pass with the Genesis and Equus are really turning heads not only in the auto industry. The Genesis sedan brings a very powerful car to the foreground of the Hyundai lineup. This model can come with engines offering 290 horsepower forma 3.8 liter V-6 engine or 385 horsepower from a 4.6 liter V-8 engine. Both of the motor options in the Genesis offer a good amount of power, but the V-8 can turn this sedan into a very fast car for a 4 seat vehicle. The Genesis also offers a surprising amount of fuel efficiency considering its powerful motor. This car can get up to 27 MPG on the highway.

Being compared to the Toyota Avalon and other well respected power sedans, this new model from Hyundai has yet to prove itself, but has a lot of potential.
