Hyundai Genesis Australia

Once known for cheap and cheerful cars that set new lows for retail pricing, Hyundai turned the notion on its head in 2014, launching the first of what will be a wide range of high-spec, premium priced cars under the Genesis sub-brand in Australia.

The first car is known as a Hyundai Genesis, though the ‘Hyundai’ is set to be dropped from the name in 2017. A 232kW 3.8-litre V6 petrol engine backed by an eight-speed automatic powers the rear-wheel drive four-door sedan. The range starts from $56,430 for the Genesis (base) and tops out at $86,570 for the Genesis (Ultimate Pack). At $86,570 the Genesis is currently the most expensive car the Korean firm makes – and the Genesis range is set to expand to six from 2018.

Hyundai Genesis Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Genesis here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Is the Genesis able to be fitted with a tow bar?

    We were told that the Genesis hasn't been rated for towing and Hyundai hasn't released any towing accessories for it. Attempting to tow with it could void your warranty and your insurance, so it would not be advisable to attempt to fit a towbar.

  • Slow engine response in Genesis

    In many cars today the engine management settings are biased to economy and low emissions and this is what makes them slow to respond. You should try the Sport mode in your Genesis as I'm certain that will give you the response you crave.

Hyundai Genesis Interior

The interior of the Genesis is very Germanic (see the images), but with a bit more of a Lexus feel. There's leather upholstery, wood and metal trim. The dashboard look is beginning to date from a styling perspective, and those familair with Hyundais will be able to spot the that the screen, buttons and other switch gear are.
