The Genesis takes premium performance up a notch by giving you three ways to go—quickly. Select a 420-hp* V8, a 311-hp V6 engine that drives the rear wheels or the HTRAC All Wheel Drive system** paired with a robust V6.
Nürburgring Track Testing And Lotus Validation
The Genesis’ chassis was developed with an international team of Hyundai experts on roads and racetracks around the world. From Nürburgring to the California Proving Grounds in the Mojave Desert, Hyundai worked to strike the ideal balance of control, confidence and comfort. Engineers consulted with renowned dynamics experts at Lotus to validate performance and meet the demands of the most demanding.
Intelligent Drive Mode
Standard on every Genesis, this system monitors and modifies engine throttle response, transmission shift points and steering to provide optimal performance in a variety of road conditions. Drivers have four modes to choose from: Eco for conserving fuel, Normal for comfort, Sport for dynamic driving and Snow for low-traction road conditions.
How HTRAC All Wheel Drive Shines
Hyundai set out to create an even smarter all-wheel-drive system. HTRAC is the result of tireless testing, tweaking and evaluation. It delivers the all-weather benefits of a traditional AWD, and the fun-to-drive character of a performance-oriented RWD system. This state-of-the-art system is only available on the 3.8L V6 Genesis.
8-Speed SHIFTRONIC® Transmission
Enhanced shift logic seamlessly delivers the engine efforts to the pavement for smoother, more refined acceleration. Paddle shifters put that power and performance a mere finger’s length away.
Multi-Link Suspension
The Genesis suspension is continuously hard at work enhancing precision and control for the driver, while an increase in rear lateral stiffness allows for more confident handling.
Available 5.0 TAU® GDI V8 Engine With 420 HP
An undeniably powerful 420-horsepower V8* with an increased compression ratio and upgraded multiple-injection mapping propels the Genesis.
3.8 Lambda GDI V6 Engine
An athletic 311-horsepower engine with Gasoline Direct Injection and a three-stage variable intake delivers power with optimal overall drivability.
