Scott Burgess Scott Burgess 8.5 out of 10 2012 Hyundai Genesis Sedan

The Genesis sedan still offers a great ride and remains tricked out with subtle luxury that feels understated and posh. In fact, Hyundai may not be charging enough. And I never thought I would ever say that.

The 2012 Hyundai Genesis R-Spec redefines notions of luxury and value — lots of power exquisitely delivered, deft handling that rivals anything in its class, a beautifully appointed passenger cabin, all at a base price below $50,000.

The Genesis Coupe offers some serious bang for your buck. It’s a legitimate performance vehicle that comes at the price of a midsize sedan.

Are you buying that LS460 because it carries a $70,000 price tag, or because you like the way it coddles you? Are you buying the BMW for the roundel or for the 0-60 time? I would posit the Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec does all the above minus the badge.

The Genesis does has style in spades (note the completely redesigned front end, replete with a new hood stamping); lots of equipment (the revised cabin is much more pleasant than before and far more luxurious than that of the BRZ/FR-S); and, of course, lots of raw power.

Hyundai has taken its already potent Genesis Coupe and turned it into one of the most compelling and affordable performance cars on sale today. It can go toe-to-toe with very well established nameplates, and in most cases outperform them.
