Exterior

The original Genesis was an understated sedan. The attractive grille Ч sans the Hyundai "H" logo Ч was probably the most unique feature. For 2012 you'd have to say the redesigned headlights are the focal point. A curved LED strip bisects the headlight cluster. The LED is an accent light though, not daytime running lamps like in most luxury cars with LEDs.

There are mild tweaks to the front and rear bumpers and the rear taillights as well, but I wouldn't call any of them significant.

The Genesis remains an attractive sedan, and sometimes understated is a good thing in today's world of aggressively styled cars. However, many shoppers might also call it forgettable.
