More importantly, it feels the part. Recount all the stories you want about Ponys oxidizing or Accent transmissions whining, this is one Hyundai that feels just as sophisticated as any Mercedes or BMW. Power delivery is electric- motor smooth, vibration as close to non- existent as any reciprocating mass is likely to get and the transmission’s gearshifts all but imperceptible. Better yet, the big V- 8 sounds the part. Where the new breed of turbocharged V8s always sound stifled — Audi’s RS7 being the exception — the Genesis’s normally aspirated V- 8 feels downright rorty. There’s a bit of a bark at throttle tip- in, a growl as you fly through the mid- range, and damned if it doesn’t sound a little NASCAR- like when you get close to its 7,000- rpm redline. It’s a good one, Hyundai’s version of this once- classic engine layout. If this turns out to be the last double- cam, normally aspirated V- 8 to power a mainstream luxury sedan, it will be remembered well. The big news for 2015 is the Genesis — V- 6 or V- 8 powered — now comes standard with HTRAC all- wheel drive, Hyundai having determined that, besides brand image, the biggest roadblock to success in the luxury sedan segment was the previous generation’s exclusive use of rear- wheel drive. Hyundai says the Genesis’ HTRAC system is active, its sensors able to anticipate ( rather than react to) wheel slippage, and that its default setting is a 40/ 60- split rear- wheel torque bias, both of which place it in the mainstream of luxury segment AWD systems. It can, says the company, send as much as 90 per cent of the V- 8’ s power to the front wheels and 100 per cent to the rear. What this means is there will be very few situations the new Genesis can’t extricate itself from and, just as importantly, still feel like a sporty rearwheel- drive sedan while doing so. Naturally, what differentiates the luxury sedan from the merely ordinary is the hedonism of its interior, and here the Genesis truly flatters. More in keeping with the overt splendour of the American definition of luxury — rather than the more subdued, sometimes downright Spartan Teutonic version — the new Genesis checks off most of the accoutrements required for automotive grandeur. Double- stitched high- quality leather? Check. Six different densities of closed- cell foam so every square inch of your tush is cosseted? Ditto. Twelve different modes of front- seat adjustment, including thigh extension and the de rigueur side bolsters? Got ’ em. And that’s just the seats. There are seemingly acres of brightly burnished wood, 900 watts of audio power and even a CO2 sensor Hyundai claims will detect when you’re drowsy and automatically pump in cool, fresh air to revive your sleepy self. Hyundai also says the interior volume of 3,485 litres trumps all the E- segment competitors — BMW 5 Series, Mercedes E- Class, Audi A6, etc. — for interior spaciousness. The steering wheel is heated, the trunk power- operated, and there are three zones — individual fronts and a separate control for the rear passengers — to the air conditioning system. In other words, there’s nothing missing that you will find in its direct mid- sized luxury competitors — except their stratospheric price tags. This “ Ultimate” Hyundai is available for just $ 62,000, undercutting most of the base versions of the cars it competes with, let alone their top- ofthe- line models. Now that the Genesis is four- wheel driven and upgraded in almost every measurable way, luxury intenders have an even more difficult choice on how to spend their luxury sedan dollars. Will it be performance or pretension? Hyundai makes a strong case for the former, with a $ 20,000 savings thrown in to further antagonize the latter. — Postmedia Network Inc.
