2012 Hyundai Genesis Hits Dealer Showrooms

June 2, 2011

The 2012 Hyundai Genesis sedan has officially hit dealer showrooms.

It's got a refreshed look, new power, and a new starting price tag: $34,200 - not including $850 destination and delivery.

Hyundai has enhanced the exterior with larger intake openings and redesigned the headlights, but overall it looks very similar to the 2011 version.

The big change is with the engines. The base Genesis 3.8 sedan has added 43 horsepower and increased torque by 27 versus the 2011 model.

Hyundai has also introduced a new model this year, the 5.0 R-Spec. Priced at $46,500, it comes with the most powerful engine Hyundai has ever built - 429 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
