2015 Hyundai Genesis Starts at $38,950


When Hyundai's redesigned large sedan goes on sale later this month, it'll start at $38,950, including destination. That's $2,830 more than the 2014 version, but Hyundai promises more standard content in the 2015 Genesis.

2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan: First Look

The new Genesis rides a 2.9-inch-longer wheelbase and aside from fresh exterior styling, gets new controls borrowed from Hyundai's Equus flagship luxury sedan, including an available 9.2-inch center display screen.

For 2015, the Genesis sedan comes with rear-wheel drive or a new all-wheel-drive system. The base price nets you the 3.8-liter V-6 trim in rear-wheel drive. Adding all-wheel drive ups the price to $41,450. Jumping up to the rear-wheel-drive-only 5.0-liter V-8 brings the starting price to $52,450; all prices include a $950 destination fee. Both engines continue to use an eight-speed automatic transmission.

2015 Hyundai Genesis Photo Gallery (24 Photos)


After making its world debut late last year in South Korea, the next-gen Hyundai Genesis bowed this week at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, where we got a look at the premium sedan as it prepares to face-off with competitors from more distinguished brands. The 2015 Genesis uses the Korean automaker's Fluidic Sculpture styling, with a grille that sits low and broad and narrows at the base. A set of BMW 7 Series-esque horizontal fog lights sit above an opening that runs the length of the bumper, and a flat crease runs parallel to the ground at the car's beltline.

Hyundai Expands 2009-2012 Genesis Recall


Late last month, Hyundai recalled approximately 27,500 model-year 2009-12 Genesis sedans to address problems with the brake system's hydraulic electronic control unit. Now the automaker is expanding the recall to a total of 43,500 Genesis sedans.

The affected vehicles were built between April 30, 2008, and March 28, 2012, and may contain brake fluid that does not protect against the corrosion of the hydraulic electronic control unit, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If corrosion occurs, reduced brake effectiveness could result, increasing the risk of a crash. The original recall covered cars built between April 1, 2008, and March 16, 2012.

Recall Alert: 2009-2012 Hyundai Genesis


Vehicles Affected: Approximately 27,500 model-year 2009-12 Genesis sedans are being recalled. The affected cars were manufactured from April 1, 2008, through March 16, 2012. "Hyundai previously initiated a service campaign in March of 2013 to replace the brake fluid in the subject vehicle population," the automaker said in a statement.

The Problem: The cars are being recalled to address potential durability issues with the brake system's Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit, Hyundai said. The previous service campaign fixed approximately 60 percent of the affected vehicles; the recall should address the remaining sedans.

Hyundai Genesis Coupe: A Genuine Muscle Car?


The Genesis coupe — shown in a Hyundai Super Bowl spot hot-dogging around Georgia’s Road Atlanta racetrack — arrives at dealerships late this month. It’s a rear-wheel-drive two-door, but can it compete with genuine muscle cars — specifically the Nissan 370Z and Detroit’s latest Mustang/Camaro/Challenger set? Hyundai thinks it can, but it also says that isn’t the car’s main goal.

At the Chicago auto show, product manager Derek Joyce said the Genesis coupe instead “has its own space.”

“Will it compete with Detroit muscle?” he asked. “Maybe. Will it compete against front-drivers like the [Honda] Civic Si? Sure.”

The key, Joyce said, is for Hyundai to completely separate itself from the front-wheel-drive competition – a key step for the automaker to prove its performance potential. Right now, the market segment the Genesis coupe will occupy is relatively vacant.
