- Hyundai Genesis review in Nigeria
Hyundai presents a lavish saloon with plenty of equipment with its Hyundai Genesis model. Undeniably this is the most luxury model the marque has in its line. The mere look at the interior fulfilled with an abundance of leather and rich wood is enough to get ensured in it. Moreover, sturdy metal was used for creating the greatest part of the switchgear. The model is delivered with an 8-inch display. Genesis is manufactured in two trim levels - 3.8 and 5.0 R-Spec.
Perhaps the greatest disadvantage of this vehicle is the narrow engine choice - to be precise there is only one option and no chance to choose any other! This is the V6 3.8-liter petrol engine that makes 311 horsepower and 293lb-ft of torque. Having a maximum 150mph speed, this model accelerates 0-62mph in as short as 6.5 seconds. However, if you opt for the 5.0 R-Spec trim model you get the chance to enjoy a V8 5.0-liter engine that releases 376 lb-ft of torque and 429 horsepower. This engine comes with an 8-speed auto gearbox that has a manual shift control.
Even the silent performance Genesis demonstrates does not conceal the fact this vehicle is miles away from fuel economy. It brings 25.2mpg riding rate, which is undoubtedly very poor on the background of Genesis' rivals providing up to 50mpg. So, this is surely a quick car to drive, which will yet cost you much. The general driving experience of Hyundai Genesis can be acquired as amazing! All road imperfections are passed by with great ease.
