What makes a luxury car luxurious? Quality of craftsmanship, better performance, and technological innovation all factor into making a great luxury vehicle. Hyundai has a handful of these higher quality cars under its brand name, and they certainly do not disappoint. Keep reading for an overview of the great luxury vehicles Hyundai has to offer - the Genesis, Genesis Coupe and Equus!
The first thing people see on the Hyundai Genesis is its exterior, and boy, is it a winner! the Genesis was designed using Hyundai's signature Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 philosophy, so it's one slick vehicle. The sedan’s chassis is made from high-strength steel, and Hyundai allows drivers to choose from a color palette of ten different colors for both the 3.8 and 5.0 trim levels.
The interior of the Genesis is more spacious than any other vehicle in the Genesis' class, coming out to about 123 cubic feet. With matte finish wood trim, premium leather, ventilated seats, and a dimming rear window, the cabin of the 2015 Genesis is roomy, quiet, and gives off a distinct feeling of luxury.
As for performance, Genesis drivers have a choice between three engines–a V8 engine that provides up to 420 hp, a 311-hp V6 and a V6 with HTRAC All-Wheel Drive. Every Genesis comes standard with Intelligent Drive Mode, which monitors the engine throttle response, shift points, suspension, and steering and modifies any of these in the case of hazardous weather for optimized performance.
Safety features on the Genesis include but are not limited to a rearview camera, blind spot detection, lane keep assist and automatic emergency braking. All of these features and more are part of Hyundai's sensory surround safety, so your car is paying attention to any potential traffic hazards when you aren't.
Hyundai Genesis Coupe
If you're looking for something a bit sportier than the typical Genesis, look no further than the Genesis Coupe. This attractive car has a large open-front grille and a more dynamic design than its cousin, and comes in six different body colors. The 3.8-liter V6 GDI engine provides 348 hp and comes with an 8-speed transmission, which is more than any competing vehicle in its class. Additionally, if you like having extra control over the handling of your vehicle, the Genesis Coupe has the option of high-quality Brembo brakes.
The premium leather-covered interior of the Genesis Coupe is a roomy 98.8 cubic feet and is decked out with a variety of fun technological features to keep you entertained during your drive. It even has electroluminescent gauges so you can easily see all your vehicle's data right in front of you.
Safety features for the coupe include Electronic Stability Control and the Traction Control System to keep the car steady on the road. You can even feel safe and sure about your tires in the rain, as the vehicle comes with limited slip differential, which evenly distributes the weight of the car across all four wheels to keep you from slipping. Of course, all of these features are backed by the Genesis Coupe's high-strength steel frame, so if all else fails you'll still feel secure in the cabin.
The Equus comes with two trim levels: Signature and Ultimate. Both trims come with similar specs–a 5.0-liter GDI engine and 8-speed transmission that ensures you have all the power and control that comes with 429 hp. The car also comes with an Electronically-controled Air Suspension, which helps the vehicle maintain a consistent height and pitch.
The interior is crafted from quality materials and wrapped in leather, and you have access to all your navigation needs through the 9.2” screen that come with the Driver Information System. You also can use this to access the Multi-View Camera System, providing you with a 360-degree view of the area around the Equus.
On the outside, the Equus has a slick, elegant design, and comes in five different colors–all varying shades of black or gray. The HID headlights and LED taillights and fog lights also come standard with both trim levels.
