Sweet Ride 2015 * 2015 Hyundai Genesis




Our first Sweet Ride of 2015 is the 2015 Hyundai Genesis and it IS Sweet! We are so impressed with what Hyundai has done with it's mid-size luxury sedan. The look and design is a nice blend of contemporary and classic elegant design that is all about comfort and luxury.


Starting with the panorama glass roof we love the details in the Genesis cabin. The sunroof expands your feeling of room in the cabin but it's not just a feeling the Genesis brags one of the roomiest cabins in it's class at 123.0 cubic feet. We enjoyed driving the Genesis up the canyon with a full view of the waterfalls and mountains unobstructed by the roof over head. Though the view is good it did not let in too much light during the day making it a very nice feature.


Just look at this amazing interior. You are seeing real wood and metal features. The center console is arranged intuitively with arm rests, hidden drink holders in a comfortable position to place and remove your drink. The joystick style Nice armrest drink holders are in the back with a center arm rest for the rear seat. "Real" back seats are formed for comfort for all the passengers in the car. The options for matte look like shown above or a more classic shiny interior cater to all style tastes.

Favorite Features:

  • The In Cabin CO2 monitor that makes sure you are safe on the road. This is only found in Hyundai and I hope other manufacturers follow suit.
  • At night when you unlock the Genesis a very fun feature appears on the road just outside the door, an approach lamp that shows a lighted logo reading Genesis lights up the road for you to step into the car.
  • The trunk opens for you! Just walk up to the back with the key fob in purse or pocket wait 3 seconds and pop it's open for you when you need an extra hand. LOVE IT!
  • Heads up display. This means that you don't have to take your eyes off the road to check your speed and other display features.




BONUS: 
The 2015 Hyundai Genesis offers all the luxury seen in Lexus, BMW or Mercedes- Benz and with a price tag thousands of dollars lower. I am so impressed with Hyundai stepping up to the luxury plate.
