What's New for 2014:

  • Re-tuned steering on Genesis 3.8
  • Genesis 3.8 features upgraded 18-in. wheels

Introduction
The Hyundai Genesis is a luxury sedan that's bigger than midsize and smaller than full-size competitors. The 2014 model is largely a carryover from the previous year, save for re-tuned steering and new wheels for the 3.8 trim level, and some adjustments to the list of standard equipment, including a heated steering wheel on the Genesis 5.0 R-Spec.

Models and Features
The 2014 Hyundai Genesis is available in two trim levels: 3.8 and 5.0 R-Spec, referencing the respective engine displacements.  It's available in white, black, grey, or silver; the 3.8 trim is also available in brown. Both versions feature leather upholstery. The 3.8 features new 18-in. alloy wheels, power heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators and approach lights, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, electroluminescent gauge cluster with LCD information display, and woodgrain/chrome interior accents. The 5.0 R-Spec adds 19-in. machine-finished alloy wheels, sport-tuned suspension calibration, HID xenon adaptive headlights, adaptive front-lighting system, navigation system, 17-speaker audio system, power tilt-and-slide sunroof, driver information system, ventilated driver's seat and heated rear seat, heated steering wheel, power rear sunshade, and chrome lower body side molding. Both trim levels offer automatic headlights, LED running lights, fog lights, heated mirrors, full power accessories, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition and entry, 8-way power driver seat, 4-way power front passenger seat, heated front seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror, sound system with a CD player, USB/iPod interface, and satellite radio.

Options and Packages
An optional Premium package gives the 3.8 a power sunroof, power-folding outside mirrors, automatic wipers, premium leather upholstery, driver seat memory functions, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, power rear sunshade, navigation system, 7-in. touch-screen display, rearview camera, and a premium Lexicon 14-speaker audio system. Available accessories include a cargo tray, sunroof wind deflector, first aid kit, mudguards, wheel locks, and iPod cable. The Technology package (which requires the Premium package) adds other features that are standard on the 5.0 R-Spec, including adaptive xenon headlights, various safety features, ventilated driver's seat, heated rear seats, hill-hold assist, an upgraded navigation system, and the Hyundai Blue Link system.

Under the Hood
The 2014 Hyundai Genesis is a rear-wheel-drive vehicle. It comes with either a 3.8-liter V-6 engine that makes 333 horsepower and 291 lb.-ft. of torque, or a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that produces 429 horsepower and 376 lb.-ft. of torque. The 8-speed automatic transmission features a manual shift control.

Fuel Economy
According to the EPA, the 2014 Hyundai Genesis 3.0 gets 18 mpg in the city, 27 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined. The 5.0 R-Spec's fuel efficiency numbers are 15/23/18 mpg.

Safety Ratings and Technology
Standard safety equipment on the 2014 Hyundai Genesis includes anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, active front head restraints, front and rear air bags, and side curtain airbags. The 5.0 adds front and rear parking assist, lane-departure warning, Hyundai's Blue Link system, smart cruise control, and electronic parking brake. Many of these features are optional on the 3.8. The Blue Link system includes a navigation system, speed-limiting system for teenaged drivers, stolen-vehicle slowdown/immobilization, automatic crash notification, SOS button, roadside assistance, and remote door unlocking.

In crash testing conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) the 2014 Hyundai Genesis received 5 stars (out of a possible 5) for rollover protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Genesis its top rating of "Good" in all tests.
