5 Reasons Why Hyundai Genesis’ The Best AWD Sedan On The Market
The all-new Genesis luxury sedan, which has been fully redesigned for the 2015 model year, has proved to be a superb vehicle!
It has gotten nothing but rave reviews from the customers and the automobile media.
For the new model year, the Genesis is available with the brand’s all-new HTRAC all-wheel-drive system.
Let’s take a look at some reasons that make the Genesis G80 one of the best AWD sedans currently on the U.S. market today.
1. Fantastic Exterior Design
It’s fair to say that the 2015 Hyundai Genesis has gone for an upscale look with its sleek exterior design.
From the front, the hexagonal grille shows that this is a car that means business, with the rear also having a look that is truly dynamic.
Surface details have been replaced by elegant body sections, giving the Genesis a grown-up elegance.
The distance from front to back is longer than the outgoing model, while the overhangs have been shortened.
Put together, it’s a design that is meant to show the high-performance capabilities of the Genesis.
2. Luxury on the inside
It’s a spacious, comfortable interior that has been designed to please driver and passenger, alike.
The intuitive instrument panel is driver-friendly, to be sure, and the use of smart design creates a flow where all of the parts seems to come together as one.
There are premium materials used throughout, as well as an ergonomic seat design that will leave you relaxed and comfortable, even on the longest of rides.
3. Upgraded Platform, HTRAC AWD System
There is a redesigned platform on the Hyundai Genesis that now offers an available HTRAC AWD system without using any components from the old platform.
High-strength steel is now used on more than 50% of the platform composition, resulting in a 16% increase in torsional rigidity and a 40% increase in bending rigidity when compared to the old architecture, which itself was considered top notch.
The end result is a platform that is stiffer in both torsional and bending rigidity than the BM$ 5-Series.
4. Incredible safety features
An incredible selection of active safety features, known collectively as Sensory Surround Safety, is available in the Genesis.
The features in place have been designed to make all the occupants of the car as safe as possible, and even help protect the safety of other drivers sharing the road with you.
The Hyundai Genesis uses the system to apply the brake automatically when the sensors detect that a collision may be imminent due to a number of different factors.
The Lane Departure Warning System and Smart Cruise Control are brought into play to make the AEB system all the more effective.
5. Powered by V8 engine
What makes the G80 tick is a powerful 5.0-liter Tau V8 engine that kicks out 420-hp at 6,000 rpm and 383 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm.
It used high-pressure direct injection to deliver power whilst still delivering low emissions and excellent fuel efficiency.
The latest version comes with a list of enhancement that make the Genesis G80 all-wheel-drive more fun to drive than ever before.
