Expert Quotes:

there’s an unusual lack of buttons and knobs for a luxury car
Road & Track

The available navigation system's control knob is similar to Audi's MMI and is not as simple to use as conventional buttons.
Consumer Guide

Other than the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the Genesis is the only car that presently offers a Lexicon-brand 7.1 discrete audio system with HD radio, 17 speakers and more than 500 watts of power
Edmunds' Inside Line

an excellent car for cruising around and listening to music, but it doesn't offer all the latest cabin tech

The Hyundai Genesis already had a very impressive array of standard luxury and entertainment features, and for 2011 it gets even better.

This year the standard equipment list for V-8 models grows with a few new items that were previously optional: The 17-speaker Lexicon premium surround-sound system, navigation system with Driver Information System and eight-inch screen, smart cruise control, electronic parking brake, cooled driver seat, adaptive front lighting, HID headlamps, and parking assistance system are all now standard on the 2011 Hyundai Genesis 4.6. And that's on top of other additional equipment that comes on the V-8, such as premium leather on the seats and on the dash, as well as rain-sensing wipers and a rear sunshade.

The Genesis 3.8 maintains its already strong list of standard features, including dual-zone automatic climate control; a sunroof; cruise control; power doors, locks, heated mirrors, and heated seats; leather upholstery; Bluetooth; and a seven-speaker, AM/FM/CD/XM audio system with an auxiliary jack and a USB port.

A Technology Package is still available on V-6 models and most of those Genesis 4.6 extras, including premium sound, HD Radio, adaptive headlights, and ventilated front seats.

The centralized, screen-driven control system, similar to BMW's iDrive, is called the Driver Information System, and overall we like the simplicity of the interface, which has a number of redundant controls on the steering wheel. Full iPod control is allowed via the screen, which is positioned high in the driver's field of vision.

There are however a few features you won't find on the 2011 Hyundai Genesis, including paddle shifters, voice controls for the audio and navigation, and all-wheel drive.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
