2009 Hyundai Genesis pricing list
This is the pricing list of the all-new, 2009 Hyundai Genesis sedan…
With the inntroduction of the all-new flagship sedan called Genesis, Hyundai aims to shatter premium automobile paradigms. With capabilities and features comparable to the world’s leading premium sports sedans, Hyundai Genesis will arrive at Hyundai dealerships this summer.
The all-new Hyundai Genesis sedan is built on an all-new rear-wheel-drive architecture, its first application in a U.S. Hyundai model. It boasts almost ideal 52/48 front-to-rear weight distribution, which means the model offers exceptional handling and refined steering characteristics.
The rear-wheel-drive layout allowed engineers to position the car’s front wheels farther forward delivering outstanding handling and steering performance. Standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC), the industry’s most important new safety technology, further enhances the vehicle’s driving confidence.
Hyundai leads all popular car brands in the standard application of ESC, with more than 70 percent of 2008 Hyundai sales featuring ESC as standard equipment.
Headlining the Genesis’ performance capabilities is Hyundai’s all-new Tau 4.6-liter V8 engine mated to a ZF 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC manual control. The Tau V8 delivers an estimated 375 horsepower to fit the demands of performance-oriented consumers.
The Genesis 4.6 also outperformes all V8 performance sedans with an EPA fuel economy estimate of 17 city/25 highway. The Tau engine is built with flexibility for the future. Future Tau variants may offer larger displacement, forced induction options and other technology enhancements.
This powertrain combination will launch Genesis to 60 miles per hour in less than six seconds. The Tau produces more horsepower and torque than the powerplants found in Lexus GS460, BMW 750i, Audi A8 and Infiniti M45 and has more horsepower per liter than any of its V8 competitors.
