2010 Hyundai Genesis coming with new goodies

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The 2009 Genesis sedan made by Hyundai was highly applauded when it first came out but now that the 2010 Genesis is coming up, many are anticipating that it would be even more impressive.

To start with, there are no visual changes. The revisions are focused on the entry-level luxury sedan's suspension and steering departments along with some additional kit.

Many felt that Hyundai's press release was a teaser since it didn't actually give details on what changes had been made on its steering and suspension systems. Company spokesman Dan Bedore divulged that Hyundai made a series of small chassis changes, with a particular focus on improving steering and handling.

Small adjustments were made to the steering, increasing efforts and tweaking feel around center; reduced friction in some suspension components; increased V6 rear spring rates; and added more jounce and rebound control to our shocks.

Bedore said, "We're Hyundai, and we'll always seeking continuous improvement. The 2010 Genesis is now equipped with an intelligent cruise control and an electronic parking brake on Technology Package equipped models, which also now have the automatic hill holder feature."

Moreover, "Ultra-premium leather seating surfaces" will come as standard fit on 3.8 Genesis models with Premium, Premium Navigation, and Technology Package equipped models.

In response to consumer demand, Hyundai says it has made an updated touch-screen navigation (with three-month trial subscriptions to XM radio and XM NavTraffic) standard equipment on 4.6-liter models as well as Genesis 3.8 models fitted with the premium navi pack.
