Genesis sedan raked in more than 20 top honors from the most prominent media outlets and automotive organizations in North America upon its launch as a 2009 model year. The trophy case includes awards from J.D. Power and Associates, Motor Trend, AutoPacific, Cars.com and leading consumer publications in addition to its North American Car of the Year honor.
Genesis is built on Hyundai’s performance-driven rear-wheel-drive architecture. Updated for 2012, the current model offers Chicago Hyundai shoppers three powertrains: the Lambda 3.8-liter direct injection V6 engine producing 333 horsepower; Hyundai’s Tau 4.6-liter V8 engine producing 385 horsepower; and the new Tau 5.0-liter direct injection V8 engine producing 429 horsepower, available on the Genesis 5.0 and Genesis R-Spec models.
Even with this impressive power increase, fuel economy for the 2012 Genesis is estimated at 16 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, nearly matching the 4.6-liter V8 (17 mpg city/26 mpg highway). Genesis is a great weapon to defend Chicago Hyundai shoppers from rising gas prices.
With technology rivaling more expensive luxury sedans, convenience features like push-button start and navigation system, and five-star safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), it’s clear that Genesis is among the best cars in the premium category.
Chicago Hyundai shoppers are invited to test-drive the dependable, award winning 2012 Genesis. To schedule an appointment, call World Hyundai at (708) 279-4256 or visit their showroom located at 5337 Miller Circle Drive, Matteson.
