2011 Hyundai Genesis Comfort & Quality

8.0
Comfort & Quality
The Genesis was Hyundai's first true luxury sedan when it was introduced two years ago, and it's clear in looking throughout the cabin that the automaker put a priority on interior room. Ride comfort and premium cabin appointments are also given top billing to the degree that the uninitiated might think they're in an Infiniti or Lexus.

The long wheelbase gives front and rear passengers ample leg- and headroom, so the 2011 Genesis is a true five-seat sedan. In front, bucket seats are padded and formed well, not thickly bolstered as sports sedans might be, but cozy, with good knee room. The backseat's legroom is outstanding-much more spacious than most sport sedans. Trunk space is considerable, at 15.9 cubic feet, and interior storage in the console, glove boxes, and door panels is good.

Build quality and refinement in the 2011 Hyundai Genesis light years ahead of Hyundai appointments even five to ten years ago, and truly competitive with premium Japanese brands. There's leather, tightly grained plastic, laminated glass to damp noise, and plenty of handsome detailing.

The 2011 Hyundai Genesis provides a spacious, plush environment for five adults—plus handsome detailing and a true premium feel.

The Genesis' fit and finish are excellent, with leather, tightly grained plastic, and plenty of handsome detailing. Wood trim, two-tone leather, and visible stitching also lend a premium look and feel.
