With great power comes great control.
NURBURGRING TRACK TESTING AND LOTUS VALIDATION
The All-New 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.
Hyundai set out to create an even smarter all-wheel-drive system. HTRAC is the result of tireless testing, tweaking and evaluation on the famous German test track, Nürburgring. HTRAC delivers the all-weather benefits of a traditional AWD, and the fun-to-drive character of a performance-oriented AWD system at the push of a button.
Normal, Sport, Eco and Snow modes alter steering, transmission, throttle, and suspension to give you control tailored to each environment and condition. In Normal mode, HTRAC actively optimizes torque flow, to achieve maximum traction, regardless of the road condition. In Sport mode, HTRAC can transfer as much as 90% of the torque to the rear wheels for a more fun-to-drive experience on dry pavement.
The Genesis' suspension is continuously hard at work enhancing precision and control for the driver in real-time. An increase in rear lateral stiffness allows for more confident handling.
Enhanced shift logic seamlessly delivers the engine efforts to the pavement for smoother, more refined acceleration. Paddle shifters put that power and performance at a mere finger’s length.
An available undeniably powerful 420-horsepower V8 with an increased compression ratio and upgraded multiple-injection mapping propels Genesis.
An impressive 311-horsepower engine with Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) and a three-stage variable intake delivers power with optimal overall drivability.
Surround yourself with innovative safety.
AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING SYSTEM 1
The Genesis features an advanced Automatic Emergency Braking system that uses both cameras and radar sensors. In fog, rain or other extreme conditions, it can see what’s happening up ahead and alert you of danger. If a crash is imminent and the driver does not react, the system deploys Automatic Emergency Braking. The system can even apply full brake force stopping power from 5 to 50 MPH, giving you an added element of safety.
The Lane Keep Assist on the Genesis automatically detects when a driver has difficulty staying in their lane and helps by using gentle steering compensation above 43 MPH. The Genesis will even provide haptic feedback through steering wheel vibration when the vehicle drifts outside the lane without signaling. Additionally, the Lane Departure Warning will alert the driver with an audio cue, or a visual warning on the Heads-up Display.
To increase awareness on the road, the Genesis employs a radar system to detect when a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot or in the rear cross path while backing up. The system then provides both an audio and a visual alert to keep you aware at all times.
No need to constantly adjust your cruise control. The Genesis automatically adjusts its speed based on the car in front of you. It’ll even come to a full stop and then start again without any driver input.
The Genesis serves up all the relevant information in the driver’s line of sight. Speed, navigation, Lane Departure Warning System and Blind Spot Detection, all in one place. An available 7-inch color instrument panel display also keeps the driver well informed without much effort.
Improve your road manners without raising a finger. The Genesis’ HID headlights can automatically switch from high beams to low beams when an oncoming car is detected.
Nine airbags help protect you from multiple angles. Even the driver’s knees have their own airbag.
1 Automatic emergency braking (AEB) is designed to detect vehicles whose taillights are directly in front of the genesis. AEB will not detect all objects. AEB initiates full braking at speeds between 5 and 50 mph. AEB is not a substitute for safe driving. Always check your surroundings when driving. See owner’s manual for details and limitations. See: Automatic Emergency Braking
2 The Lane Departure Warning System with Lane Keep Assist operates above approximately 43 MPH and only when the lane markings are clearly visible on the road and detected by the system. It will not prevent loss of control. Refer to Owner’s Manual for more information. See: Lane Departure Warning System
3 Never rely completely on Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and be sure to use proper lane changing procedures. BSD will not detect every object or vehicle and will not prevent accidents. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm clearance. See Owner’s Manual for further product details and limitations. See: Blind Spot Detection
4 Never rely exclusively on the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm rear clearance. There are limitations to the function, detection, range and clarity of the system. Vehicle must be in reverse and has to be traveling at 7 MPH or less. To learn more, see Owner’s Manual. See: Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
5 Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is not a collision avoidance or warning device. SCC is for highway use only and should not be used in poor weather, heavy or varying traffic, or on winding or slippery roads. Driver remains responsible to slow or stop the vehicle to avoid a collision. See: Smart Cruise Control
Premium amenities you won’t want to drive without.
HANDS FREE SMART TRUNK
Can a trunk be smart enough to know when your hands are full? The Genesis’ trunk will automatically open when you stand within 3 feet behind the vehicle with the key for more than three seconds. No need to kick or wave your feet to engage.
Introducing a totally new automotive system designed to sense carbon dioxide levels in the cabin of the vehicle. As you drive, carbon dioxide naturally builds. The Genesis CO2 Sensor automatically activates the ventilation system to add fresh air to the cabin.
The center console is highlighted by a large, segment-first HD touchscreen measuring over nine inches and comes complete with Driver Information System capable of serving up everything from Bluetooth® streaming audio to Gracenote® Album Art.
No more blindly guessing which one needs some additional air pressure. The Genesis intelligently indicates exactly which tire is low on air.
Surround yourself with a 17-speaker state-of-the-art system that produces pristine audio. This GRAMMY®-award-winning technology delivers sound via high efficiency speakers and amplifiers.
The next generation of Blue Link® demonstrates Hyundai’s dedication to make driving safer, easier, more convenient and more fun. Newly added features include Destination Search powered by Google®, enhanced remote access, and available next-generation multimedia apps like Pandora® internet radio, Aha™ Radio and SoundHound. Hyundai also continues to offer three years standard of Assurance Connected Care powered by Blue Link for added peace of mind.
The Genesis Intelligent Assistant® is a proactive app built to save the driver time and provide an even higher level of convenience. The app combines Blue Link® features, data from the vehicle, the owner’s smartphone, and the internet with multiple layers of intelligence. This allows the Genesis Intelligent Assistant app to send proactive notifications and recommendations to the Genesis owner in preparation for their drive. Genesis owners will have alerts to remote start their car on a hot or cold day, saving them the luxury of time.
