Hyundai Revamps Genesis

February 18th, 2011 by

The still new Hyundai Genesis is getting a work over already – to become the top luxury model of the Korean auto maker’s line up.

This car was only released in late 2009, in limited numbers, as the first of many re-imagined Hyundai models. The company is looking to attract not only young buyers, but those who want a luxury foreign vehicle with a domestic price tag.

It’s the kind of savvy buyers that are coming into Patrick Hyundai in the greater Chicago area. And they’ll keep visiting as Hyundai continues to produce luxury models like Genesis and the refreshed Hyundai Sonata.

But fear not, the luxury factor in the Hyundai Genesis is getting revved up!

Hyundai is giving Genesis several exterior design improvements. This will include different angles around the grille and both the front and rear fenders. The car will also receive a new direct injection for its V6 engine, matted to an eight-speed transmission.

There is also a new special edition of Hyundai’s Genesis – called the 5.0 R-Spec. That variant comes with a 429 horsepower 5-liter V8 power-plant. It comes with very unique 19-inch alloy wheels, sport-tuned transmission, upgraded suspension and steering calibrations for performance driving.

Come in to Patrick Hyundai and check it out for yourself!
