All newer 2015 Hyundai Genesis spaces underneath the extravagance Equus car in the Hyundai lineup, and is the most recent portion in what the brand wants to turn into its premium or extravagance models. Stacked up against any semblance of the Lexus ES 350 and Cadillac CTS, the Genesis is probably the underdog. Both brands have a since a long time ago settled extravagance history that impels them forward in the section. 

Be that as it may this shouldn't imply that the 2015 Genesis isn't a solid contender. Stacked up with standard highlights to opponent those of its more prestigious rivals, the Genesis conveys an experience that is agreeable, calm, and rather enjoyable.       The 2015 Hyundai Genesis comes with a price tag of $38,000, while the 5.0 starts at $51,495 before destination charges. Loaded with features, we didn't have to add on too many to push the Genesis into relative luxury status. For an additional $3,245, we added on a heads-up display, premium navigation with larger display, a Lexicon 17-speaker sound system, power trunk lid, continuous damping control suspension, and dual air conditioning with CO2 sensor.
Standard features included 19-inch alloy wheels, power tilt and slide panoramic sunroof, HID auto headlights, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, front and rear park assist system, smart cruise control with stop/start capability, and much more. Safety features included nine standard airbags, blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning and lane keep assist,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     All new 2015 Hyundai Genesis seems to glide down the road, as the interior is surprisingly quiet. We've only ever found this level of sound deadening in the likes of the Lexus LS, and although it's not at that level, it surpasses its competition. The seats are comfortable and supportive for that bumper-to-bumper traffic, and soft-touch and harder plastics can be found in the interior.
The infotainment system had a little bit of a learning curve, but once everything was synced up, we were ready to go. The navigation was easy to use, and while we like it when a system displays the directions from top to bottom, we eventually got used to the bottom to top flow of the Genesis.The Genesis isn't your commonplace weekend fun or road trip car , however it shouldn't be ignored. Its agreeable ride and a lot of storage room give it well to any movement. We're not saying burden it up with surfboards and shoreline adapt and spend a day at the shoreline, yet for those more drawn out drives and weekend getaways, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis handles itself well.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Getting out on the open road, we were really able to see what this car is capable of. With three driving modes--Eco, Normal, and Sport--the driver is in charge of the performance. When driving around the city, Eco mode proved to be beneficial in conserving fuel economy slightly, while Sport mode was almost grin-worthy. The paddle shifters made the experience that much better, and with the strong acceleration, we couldn't complain too much.

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is one of those cars that you don't think about when considering a luxury sedan. And for good reason. It fades to the background against the likes of the Lexus ES 350 and Cadillac CTS. But after a week behind the wheel, we feel the Genesis is a good alternative to the more expensive models, with more standard features.
And while this car may not stand out, it's a silent competitor that may--with more brand recognition--steal away some customers looking for more bang for their buck. However, the level of refinement isn't quite at the luxury mark, but it's right there with just a few more tweaks. If you're in the market for a luxury sedan, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis should definitely be on your list. And if you're on a budget, the entry Genesis 3.8 provides a good alternative.
