    Review: 2015 Hyundai Genesis 3.8

      Holiday Road-Tripping with Mr. Genesis


    Being a person who gets the chance to review new vehicles, I have noticed that many of the vehicles that I evaluate are loaded up models. It does put someone like myself in a odd position trying to do a review since I have to try and distill it down to the main items that will be found on the lower tiers as many buyers don’t go for the top models. So whenever I get a mid-level or base trim of a review vehicle, it’s like a breath of fresh air and allows me to focus on the important parts. Case in point is the 2015 Hyundai Genesis which arrived during the Christmas holiday. I wasn’t sure what I was getting, possibly a fully loaded 3.8 V6 model or even the 5.0 V8. But it was the base model 3.8 that was dropped off and I knew it would give me a chance to examine it without any of the gimmicks.

    When the Genesis was introduced last year, I was unsure about the looks. It boasted a number of design cues from the HCD-14 shown at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show which in my eyes made it look somewhat comical. Then when I did a first drive last spring, I grew to like the looks aside from the grille. After spending a week, I became impressed with the overall design. Compared to the last Genesis which looked to be a generic sedan, the new model has style and presence all over. The Genesis boasts Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language which includes such details as the large hexagonal grille, LED lighting on the front lights, pronounced character line on the belt line, and the rear pillars flowing into the decklid.

    Moving inside, the Genesis shows how far Hyundai has come with interior design. The last one looked like someone just threw bits and pieces together in a hurry. The 2015 model looks to crib some ideas from the Equus flagship which isn’t a bad thing. A new dashboard design provides a better layout of controls, and the feeling of being closer with the car. An eight-inch touchscreen comes standard and boasts Hyundai’s BlueLink telematics system which provides such features as emergency services, along with weather and traffic. Using the touchscreen was a painless affair with the system recognizing whenever I touched the screen, along with a set of buttons to direct you to different parts of the system.

    As for comfort, the Genesis comes wrapped with supportive leather seats. Front seat passengers get heat, along with 12-way power seats to find a position that works for them. Meanwhile in the back, there is more the enough head and legroom for even the tallest of passengers. Now being it was the holidays when I was driving the Genesis, the trunk was an important part since it would be carrying a lot of stuff. The Genesis passed this with flying colors thanks to a trunk measuring 15.3 cubic feet. It was able to fit luggage for two people and some gifts, and still have enough space for other items.

    Powertrain and Ride/Handling Thoughts Are On Page 2


    Power for the Genesis 3.8 comes from a 3.8L GDI V6 with 311 horsepower and 293 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with an eight-speed automatic that sends power to the rear-wheels or optional all-wheel drive. Despite what the numbers tell you, the V6 is quite a strong engine. Power is seemingly available through the rpm band and is ready to come on when needed. Helping matters is a smart eight-speed automatic which seemingly knew what gear was needed and was able to apply it without any notice from the driver or passenger. Fuel economy is rated at 18 City/29 Highway/22 Combined. During my week, I saw an average of 24.6 MPG. More surprising was on one stretch of our holiday trip, I saw fuel economy as high as 29.3 MPG.

    Being called in for holiday road trip, ride quality and sound deadening are two key items that could make or break the Genesis. Luckily it was more than up to the job. Driving on the interstate showed how much work Hyundai has put into the Genesis as bumps and potholes were dealt with and not a hint made them into the interior. Road and wind noise are nonexistent, which helps bolster its appeal. As for handling, Hyundai has made some great strides in this department. The Genesis showed no body roll and provided decent weight in the steering. But don’t think you have found an excellent alternative to the likes of the Cadillac CTS VSport as I think it drives much better than the Genesis.

    Looking at the base model of any car can give you an idea of whether or not it is the real deal. In the case of the Genesis, this is truly the real deal. The automaker has made great strides in making the Genesis from a nobody into a somebody. With the looks, feel, and drive of a vehicle that costs thousands more, the Hyundai Genesis is not only a bargain, but a damn fine automobile.

    i've come around a bit on this car.  An AWD V6 in lower trim at a good lease or good price OTD would be a great value.

     

    Not a huge fan of the dash, but it is better than lots of stuff in similar price ranges (i.e. BMW's)

     

    Why isn't the new continental more like this?

    attractive.  genesis is long lean and attractive.  the lincoln is most certainly not

     

    I'm not sure I would call the Genesis attractive.

    Better looking the previous-generation? Yes

    Attractive? No

    The Continental looks prestigious, the Genesis just looks like a big, generic,  luxury car.

    i'm one of the biggest Ford fanbois on the site here...the Continental is a puffy MKS meets Bentley yuckathon.  Its one of the worst Fords in the last 10 years.  It's tacky, unoriginal, where do i stop.  The dash is no more evolved than most ford products in the last 10-15 years.  MKz and MKr concept are beautiful.  COntinental in fell swoop throws it into the trash.

     

    I guess I wouldn't call the Genesis hugely prestigious but in the right colors, and with far better proportions of length, width, hood, greenhouse, wheelbase, overhangs, just looks far more the part of tasteful luxury car.

     

    Now i will also say the Avenir concept and CT6 look better than both.

     

    Sidebar, not that is directly related, but i am starting to see a few new CTS' on the road lately.  I think the price adjustments are making place in the market.  The one I saw last night was killer, shined about as well as a car could be.  Black, premium wheels. WOW it looked fantastic in that combination.  I just struggle with how the Lincoln looks in comparison to the new Cadillacs.....The Hyundai doesn't have the weight of the world on its brand and so therefore even if it has some faux about its look, at the end of the day, it looks more expensive than its brand and won't be grossly out of place in a parking lot of other better marques.

    The new Genesis is looking exceptionally great in that white color! Although I would change the rims for something more open giving it a bit of a more agressive look, it's not the weakest of cars.

     

    How do you think the car would hold up as a daily driver? You've said that there is almost no road or wind noise, what about the engine or the default exhaust? I really like my cars to have at least some 'roar' to them, especially if they have an engine like this one.

    I think the Genesis will hold up well as daily driver. As for engine noise, there is barely a hint of it with the V6. I would go for a V8 or an aftermarket exhaust if you want noise.

    For the price and accouterments, the Genesis is really hard to beat. I mean, trying to find flaws in a car from a maker that is trying punch above its weight in prestige is a refreshing change from the established luxury makes going downmarket for simple economics. Hyundai isn't expecting to succeed yet still did it, while Mercedes and Audi are reaming in the cash from one of the laziest product efforts. I'd rather get a $45k Genesis than a $45K CLA. It's just plain American wholesome sense. 

     

    Heck, the Genesis is essentially one way to interpret the American way of giving more, and more stuff which is better than the lesser stuff, for less.

    Other than the grille, I don't have any beef with the second gen Genesis. The 3.8L is a stout V6, I'd go as far as saying it's a better buy than the V8. It's less than a second slower, costs much less to start, and is rated 18/29 mpg to the V8's 15/23.

      From the strange bedfellows' file; Hyundai and Kia have announced a joint investment of 80 million Euros (about $90 million) into Croatia-based Rimac Automobili. Rimac may be known to most people for the fast Concept One electric supercar - the vehicle which Richard Hammond had a serious crash when filming The Grand Tour.
      "The companies will work closely together to develop prototypes for an electric version of Hyundai Motor's N brand midship sports concept car and a high-performance fuel cell electric vehicle. Hyundai Motor Group will leverage the partnership to build on its existing R&D capabilities to meet its electrification plan, which includes deployment of 44 eco-friendly models by 2025," Hyundai said in a statement this week.
      Hyundai has been teasing the idea mid-ship sports car for the past few years with a number of Veloster based concepts like the RM16 N. Maybe something could come to fruition with the help of Rimac.
      What does Rimac get out of this deal? This will allow the company to grow into a Tier 1 supplier for the industry for electric components.

      It feels weird to be writing a review of the previous-generation Mazda3 when the new model is currently sitting out front at dealers. But I find this situation to be unique because I had the chance to explore a 2019 Mazda3 to get some first impressions while working on a review of the 2018 model. This gives me a chance to compare the two in certain aspects, along with pondering the question of whether or not the previous model is still a good buy.
      Despite the new model taking the styling up another level, the outgoing model is still a looker. From the bold front end with a large grille and slightly angled headlights, to sculpting running along the sides, the 2018 3 still stands out in the compact crowd. The older design also allows for slightly better rear headroom and a larger area of glass for improved visibility.  But the new 3 holds a significant edge over the old model when it comes to the interior. The modern design and use of high-quality materials really help boost Mazda’s ambitions of becoming something more premium. But the 2018 model I found to have a slightly easier center stack layout and more interior room. One item I didn’t get the chance to play within the 2019 Mazda3 is the infotainment system. Aside from boasting a larger screen, Mazda has also dropped the touchscreen functionality. The latter has been a big issue on some of the recent Mazda vehicles I have driven, including the 2018 3. It is difficult to figure out which parts of the screen are touch-enabled and which aren’t. The system is also beginning to show its age somewhat as the system showed some slowdown in certain areas such as connecting to my phone via Bluetooth. Under the hood of the 2018 model is either a 2.0L or 2.5L SkyActiv-G four-cylinder. My tester had the latter which produces 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet. This engine can also be found under 2019 Mazda3, albeit slightly tweaked - 186 for both horsepower and torque. I find the Mazda3 to be the best application for the 2.5 engine. The lighter weight of the vehicle allows the 2.5 to provide a smooth and quick acceleration for most situations you find yourself in. However, the 2.5 feels like it is running out of breath when going above 70 mph, making passing and merging onto a highway slightly difficult. Where the 3 really shines is down a twisty road. Very few vehicles can match the sharp handling characteristics on offer. The suspension keeps the vehicle level when cornering and quickly respond to change in direction. Steering is quick and features a nice weight when turning. Ride quality is slightly rough with a fair number of bumps coming inside. Some of this can be attributed to the 18-inch wheels fitted on my tester.  Should you consider a 2018 Mazda3 when the bright and shiny 2019 3 is available now? I can only give a half-answer as I haven’t driven the 2019 model yet. But having sat in one, I can see why someone would consider it. The impressive design inside and out can make you believe you’re driving something from a luxury brand. The 2018 model still has some things going for it such as having slightly more interior space, similar fuel economy figures, and dealers beginning to lower prices on them to get them out. As I am writing this (May 5th), I have seen dealers in my local drop prices by $1,000 to $3,000 on 2018 models. Right now, I would be willing to pocket the extra cash and go with a 2018 Mazda3.
