The 2009 Hyundai Genesis has been officially unveiled for the American market. The full-size rear-wheel-drive car is designed to challange the likes of Lexus and Infiniti, if not also the Germans. But pricing is expected to be around US$30,000 in the States.

The Genesis will be available with three engines, including two V6 engines and a new V8. The 3.3-litre V6 produces 264 hp and 316 Nm. The 3.8-litre V6 produces 290 hp and 358 Nm. The 4.6-litre V8 is good for 368 hp and 429 Nm, good for a 0-100 kph time of around six seconds.

All three engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic.

The spacious interior seems to use upscale materials extensively, and should match well with its intended competition.

  1. koreans are starting to make good cars.i jus cant wait for the new coupe.

  2. man, whats the problem with this interior (the curvee dashboard shape). the accord have the same shape and now the hyundai, this is just copying from the germans ๐Ÿ˜• although it is much better than before.

  3. this is a really good car! quality looks great, but i think there is too much wood ๐Ÿ˜› love the V8!!! i think it’s capable of under 5.5 seconds if the car weighs less than 1600kg

  4. looks like its been patterned on an S Class Benz.

  5. the interior still looks a bit dull though.
    Somehow, they’re trying to change their car styles to that of European cars rather than the Japanese.

  6. I’ve got to say I’m really impressed. The interior is simply marvelous.
    I read a whole article about the Genesis the other day and believe me guyz the specifications and features are unbeleivable. Not only they copied luxury toys form competitors like BMW’s iDrive, they also will offer Lexington audio system which is only offered in Rolls-Royces!!!

    Can u imagine ???

  12. Believe it or not, I saw this car cruising around buhairah area in Shj, and it looks awesome, it was a black one with Dxb plates, so i guess it already made it to the UAE.. prices?

  13. To reem: That price (SR 112500) is for what engine type? Is it already available in KSA?
