The sleek flowing lines and assured exterior styling of Genesis embody the second generation of our nature-inspired Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy.Genesis is created to turn heads, and change minds.
Panorama Glass Roof
The fluidic design philosophy continues with the twin-panel panorama glass roof.* At the touch of a button, the front roof panel opens for an even sportier driving experience. Flooding the cabin with light, it also provides shade and insulation from wind, and offers relief from the heat and external noise.
*Colours are indicative only and may vary from actual colours to the display process. *Ultimate only. ^Beige two tone with Chocolate (WYB) premium leather# appointed seats with Ultimate pack only.#Premium leather appointed seats means parts of the seats have a combination of genuine and artificial leather, but are not wholly leather. Overseas model shown.
Ultra High-strength Steel
The ultra-high tensile strength steel used in Genesis is a high performance, special steel alloy applied to safety-critical areas of the body shell, where additional strength reinforcement is required. The benefit is superior crashworthiness.
Long Wheel Base
With its finely tuned suspension, elongated wheelbase and high-strength steel body, you'll enjoy confident handling, whether driving in the city or on the open road, as well as an exceptionally smooth ride.
Upon opening the doors, you inhale the unmistakeable quality emanating from the premium appointed leather soft touch surfaces, such as the beautifully detailed seats and cloth covered pillars. The soft comfort of leather* is extended to the steering wheel and gear shift knob as well as to other interior surfaces.
*Finishes specified as leather may contain elements of genuine leather, polyurethane leather (leather substitute) or man-made materials, or a combination thereof.
The well-balanced and spacious cabin space of Genesis exudes luxury throughout. Convenience and ergonomic design shine through the placement of buttons, knobs and switches, which feel precise to the touch and are where you intuitively expect them to be placed.
Genesis is equipped with the GRAMMY® Award-winning Lexicon® audio system, with discreet LOGIC7® surround sound processing, through a system of 17 speakers. For even greater purity of sound, noise-reducing glass shuts out the noise of the world outside*.

Heated & Ventilated Seats
The driver and front passenger seats offer a three-level cooling and heating option, enabling you to adjust the level of ventilation of seat backs and cushions, ensuring total comfort on every drive.
Given the comprehensive active and passive safety features that come as standard, it's no surprise that Genesis has been given the highest ANCAP safety rating score ever awarded.
*Overall score of 36.88 out of 37 points is a record in 21 year ANCAP testing history as at 23 October 2014. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants. Tests were conducted under ANCAP's Niche Vehicle Policy.
Autonomous Emergency Braking
Combining radar and camera data, the Autonomous Emergency Braking system activates the brakes when it detects dangerous, sudden braking by the car ahead. When travelling 80km/h and below, Genesis will come to a complete stop.
Lane Departure Warning
A camera mounted on top of the windshield enables Genesis to recognise the markings on the lane you're driving in and, if it detects an unintended departure, initiates an alert to the driver.
Drivers Assistance Technology
Intelligent features like Blind Spot Detection* alerts you to objects in close proximity, and Lane Change Assist* warns you if a vehicle is approaching rapidly from the rear. When reversing at low speed, Rear Cross Traffic Alert* warns you of objects approaching on both sides of the vehicle.
*Available on Sensory and Ultimate Packs only.
Around View Monitor
The Around View Monitor's* four pantoscopic cameras display a bird's eye 360 degree view of the Genesis on the centre console screen, so you always know what's immediately around you.
*Available on Sensory and Ultimate Packs only.
The Genesis is equipped with a roll-over sensor and a comprehensive system of nine airbags, offering maximum protection in the event of a collision.
The all-aluminium Lambda II 3.8-litre GDi V6 engine in Genesis produces an exhilarating power output of 232 kW at 6,000 rpm and 397 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm, delivering unparalleled handling, and an exceptionally smooth ride, whatever the conditions.
The powertrain is coupled with a Hyundai-developed eight-speed Shiftronic® transmission that seamlessly delivers power to the road for smoother and more refined acceleration, while paddle shifters put lightning fast manual gear changes at your fingertips.
Intelligent Drive Mode
Normal, Sport and Eco modes alter steering, throttle response and transmission logic to give you the option to tailor to each environment, or personal preference, during every drive.
Tested And Tuned In Australia
To deliver luxury sedan handling with Australian comfort and dependability, Genesis was subjected to a 12-month localisation and tuning program, over thousands of kilometres across urban, country and outback roads and surfaces.
A smart air conditioning system* automatically activates the ventilation system when elevated levels of CO2 are detected in the vehicle's cabin. The addition of fresh air helps improve driver alertness and reduce the risk of fatigue.
*Available on Sensory and Ultimate Packs only.
Hands Free Smart Boot
When standing for more than three seconds within a metre of the rear of the Genesis with the proximity smart key, the Smart Boot senses your presence and automatically opens to allow you to store your cargo, hands free.
The Head-Up Display system allows you to stay focused on the road ahead, while viewing key driving information projected onto the front windscreen.
*Available with Sensory and Ultimate Packs only.
High Intensity Discharge Headlamps
The High Intensity Discharge headlamps cast a significantly brighter and longer light beam, and are complemented by high visibility LED daytime running lights. Automatic headlight-levelling capability also ensures correct beam direction, regardless of load.
Soft Close Doors
If the doors have only been partially closed, sensors embedded in the door latches activate a motor that closes them automatically.
Designed to enhance your driving pleasure and enjoyment of your lifestyle pursuits, Hyundai Genuine Accessories are an astute way to maintain your Genesis’s showroom value.
Brett Davis, Performance Drive
"...the 3.8-litre V6 produces nice velvety power. It’s smooth and responsive, and produces an angry little roar when it opens its lungs ... the eight-speed auto does a great job of finding the right revs for the right situation."
"On a country loop that threw up bumps both on entry to and in the middle of corners, the Genesis remained unruffled. It doesn’t mind being hustled along, and the damping has been well judged for country roads…"
"No matter where you sit, it's an incredibly quiet car. The engine is distant whoosh, the tyre noise muted and there's almost no wind or ambient noise. It's supremely comfortable and the excellent stereo will wash away what little noise does invade."
"Yet in all guises, what is only the second (but first right-hand-drive) Genesis to date is an impressively refined car that has the quietness, comfort and smoothness to cast itself as a genuine alternative to the usual luxury car suspects." (Hyundai Genesis Ultimate vs BMW 528i)
"From the beautifully resolved styling to the sumptuous and feature-laden interior, the Genesis looks the real deal ... It's all there, from soft-touch surfaces to tastefully presented dash details, to leather-trimmed multi-adjustable seats..."
"Hyundai’s sustained growth sees another barrier shattered, with Genesis successfully cracking the exclusive rear-wheel-drive luxury saloon market. Underpinned by a refined driveline, it also delivers the performance and poise more commonly found in European marques."
