2012 Hyundai Genesis Hits Dealer Showrooms

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.

If you're interested in purchasing this vehicle, we advise you to wait at least 2-3 months in order to maximize savings. Right now, demand is higher than supply so there is very little negotiating room.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
