Exterior Features
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Sedan is a 5-passenger luxury sedan sold in 3.8 and 5.0 R-Spec trim. All Genesis Sedans are equipped with a 15.9-cubic-foot trunk.

Automatic headlights with LED running lights are standard, as well as power heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators. The Genesis 3.8 rides on 17-inch aluminum wheels, with 18-inch wheels available as an option.

The Genesis 5.0 R-Spec rolls on 19-inch alloys. The sport-tuned R-Spec also includes a stiffer chassis, quicker steering and bigger brakes, and can be identified by its unique styling enhancements, different badges, power-folding side mirrors, and xenon headlights with an adaptive front lighting system.

Interior Features
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 offers leather upholstery, keyless entry with push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control system, heated front seats, and a 7-speaker audio system with satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB/iPod connection.

The Genesis 5.0 R-Spec adds a power sunroof, premium Lexicon Discrete 7.1 surround-sound audio system with HD Radio and an in-dash DVD changer, as well as an ultimate navigation system with 1 free year of Blue Link telematics service and Bluetooth streaming audio capability. Additionally, the 5.0 R Spec is equipped with premium leather, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, wood-and-leather steering wheel, and an extended leather treatment for the cabin. A reversing camera, smart cruise control, power rear sunshade, power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and memory for the driver's seat and steering wheel are also included on this trim level.

Optional Features
The Hyundai Genesis 3.8 is available with most of the features that come standard on the Genesis 5.0 R-Spec. The Premium package adds 18-inch wheels, power sunroof, extended leather, power rear sunshade, reversing camera, rain-sensing wipers, premium audio system, and a basic navigation system with a 7-inch display.

The Genesis 3.8's Technology package includes these items plus a Lexicon Discrete 7.1 surround-sound audio system, navigation system, premium leather, smart cruise control, lane-departure warning system, active xenon headlamps, front and rear park-assist sensors, ventilated driver's seat, and heated rear seats.

By contrast, the only option for the Genesis 5.0 R-Spec is a set of summer performance tires.

Under the Hood
The Genesis 3.8 is equipped with a 333-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine, while a 429-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 engine is standard for the R-Spec. Both engines drive the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Sedan are:

  • Genesis 3.8: 19/29/22 mpg (city/highway/combined)
  • Genesis 5.0 R-Spec: 16/25/19 mpg

Safety
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis is equipped with 8 air bags, traction and stability control, and 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist. The 5.0 R-Spec adds a lane-departure warning system, front and rear park-assist sensors, rain-sensing wipers, and a reversing camera. This year, Hyundai's Blue Link telematics debuts, and is equipped with a feature that automatically alerts authorities if the car's air bags deploy.

As this overview is written, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has rated the crashworthiness of the 2013 Genesis Sedan.
