Tech Boasting 2015 Hyundai Genesis Midsize Sport Sedan
Published November 30, 2014
Along with the Cadillac CTS and the Lexus GS, the all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis is likewise considered in the mid-luxury automobile market. The current design is equivalent to a roomier vehicle that can match even what the Mercedez-Benz E-Class offers. Thus, the ExtremeTech Editor’s Choice was awarded to the new Genesis as one of the upscale mid-sized sport sedans, including the calculation of its price.
Fun and Comfortable Ride
Similar to the BMW iDrive, Hyundai is now offering drivers the option to control the infotainment system through the cockpit control. The new Genesis is now designed with a touchscreen and voice input features. Hyundai’s ‘Google Send To Car’ telematics system allows the driver to send navigation routes through a web browser. Additionally, the instrument panel features a multi-information and color display that provides key information like navigation prompts. The center stack, on the other hand is the audio display. The all-wheel-drive version’s rear seats have heaters, however, the standard model has non-ventilated rear seats, and without USB jacks and power outlets. The cockpit room will be much appreciated as the Hyundai’s first carbon dioxide sensor will open the air vents once it detects over 2000 ppm of carbon dioxide in the cabin. Within 3 seconds, within a 3-feet distance, and the key in your pocket, the Genesis Smart Trunk amazingly opens with a simple kick under the back bumper.
Driver Aids Supremacy
The Hyundai’s mid-sized sport sedan is now offering driver aids supremacy that is capable of indicating blind spots, including posting speed limit, current speed, forward collision, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. Hyundai’s blind spot detection warning is in the head-up display, warning in front and the center, unlike other car’s side mirror indicator lamps. Instead of an audible warning, the Genesis warns with a haptic feedback, which is converted into a vibrating steering wheel.
Premium Multimedia Systems
The costliest Genesis line offers two navigation systems. The standard multimedia system works through the integration of the Apple Siri Eyes Free and the 8-inch center stack LCD display. This system works by holding the voice button that can record satellite radio, run Aha and SoundHound, and even run Pandora when in phone mode. On the other hand, the premium system has a 9.2-inch display, High Definition and satellite radio song tagging, Gracenote album art, and a 30-Gigabyte hard drive for music storage.
This mid-sized sport sedan is one thing to drive so as to believe the techs it boasts, although the Genesis lacks the brand’s grille badge, reducing its established luxury, including the lack of more USB jacks. Nonetheless, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis has been labeled as the mid-sized sport sedan by the prestigious ExtremeTech Editor’s Choice.
