Interior

Clearly, the winning formula for Hyundai is offering a lot of content and quality for a lower price. The same is true even with this large sedan. It's hard to think of what exactly competes with the 3.8 trim level's $34,200 price considering its size. You could get into an Acura TL or a Lincoln MKS, cars with similarly sized V-6 engines with front- or all-wheel drive, but both are considerably smaller inside.

Inside, Hyundai has definitely matched the Acura in terms of a premium feel and has surpassed Lincoln. The leather seats are downright plush while still offering plenty of support. The optional leather-wrapped dash exudes an upscale feel to the entire cabin.

What I often find in large sedans these days is that they don't feel all that large inside. Not so with the Genesis. It's cavernous in front and back, with wide front seats and a backseat with 38.6 inches of legroom. This is identical to the MKS and bests the TL, Infiniti M and Lexus GS, which measure 36.2, 36.2 and 36.4 inches, respectively.

The trunk is respectfully sized at 15.9 cubic feet, but it's not tall enough for really bulky items. Golf clubs won't be an issue, though. Still, that figure again trumps most of the above-mentioned competition by at least a cubic foot. The MKS is an exception with 18.7 cubic feet.
