Hyundai Genesis gets some improvements, loses the 4.6-liter V8 for the 2013MY

Article by Christian A., on August 17, 2012

2013 Hyundai Genesis will receive several technological improvements, which include an eight inch touch screen and a bigger 64 GB drive. The 3.8-liter V6 car’s technology package and 5.0-liter V8′s R-Spec trim levels are now offered with the optional eight-inch screen, together with Hyundai’s new ultimate navigation system with Blue Link telematics.

The new display provides a new structure that’s intended to be more intuitive, an improved voice-recognition system and new hot keys so that the driver could control the infotainment system. With the standard 64 GB hard drive, the driver could store music, video and images.

The navigation system will receive upgrades such as displaying the active speed limit, giving details about the next three turns, offering real pictures of future street signs and indicating which lane the driver has to be in when approaching a juncture in the road.

Additional features that raise the driver’s convenience are voice text messaging, recall advisor, stolen vehicle recovery and an eco-coach. The 2013 Genesis will also be available with the 4.6-liter V8 option. The 5.0-liter direct-injected Tau V8 engine is offered exclusively with the R-Spec package.

Continuing Hyundai's focus on being a leader in safety innovation, the Hyundai Genesis claims top-notch all around safety features to prevent accidents and to optimise occupant well-being in the case of an accident. The Genesis maintains Hyundai’s tradition of systematising important life-saving technology with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), eight strategically placed airbags, and active electronic head restraints. These head restraints have confirmed as helping to avoid whiplash by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

In addition to safety leadership in 2012, the Genesis includes new day running lights to all its models. The Genesis further offers a newly-designed Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), for the 3.8 technology package and the 4.6 and 5.0 R-Spec models.

Hyundai Genesis' eight airbags consist of front advanced dual airbags, side-impact airbags mounted on front and rear seats, and side curtain airbags mounted to the roof for front and rear outboard seats.

The Genesis has eight ultrasonic sensors on the bumpers in the front and rear. These sensors, supported by the rear backup camera, can detect the proximity of objects while parking. The distance is displayed on the in-dash screen and is emphasised with a warning tone.
