Overview of 2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8L By R. Feeman
The 2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8L luxury-oriented sedan receives a number of updates for 2012, including new exterior styling, an updated powerplant and a retuned suspension, which helps to improve agility. Outside, the Genesis 3.8L displays a revised front end with a new grille, a larger air intake opening, redesigned headlights with LED accents and new daytime running lights. In addition, Hyundai restyled the Genesis's side rocker panels, added power-folding side mirrors with puddle lamp functions and upgraded the side window surrounds with a brushed aluminum finish. In the rear, the 3.8L gets a new bumper with integrated dual chrome exhaust tips and redesigned taillights. The 17-inch alloy wheels have been updated as well.
Inside, the 3.8L comes well-equipped with such standard features as leather upholstery, heated front seats, an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar and a 4-way power-adjustable passenger seat. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, push-button start, remote keyless entry and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror also come standard. Dual-zone automatic climate control with an outside temperature display keeps passengers comfortable, while an AM/FM audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth, a CD player and a USB input jack provides entertainment. Under the hood, the 3.8L receives an updated 3.8-liter V6 engine with direct injection, which boosts horsepower to 333, up from 290 the previous year. Peak torque increases as well, to 291 lb-ft from 264. The V6 links to a new 8-speed automatic transmission with a Shiftronic manual-shift mode. Fuel economy numbers for the V6 check in 18/28 mpg. Safety features include 8 airbags, electronic stability control, traction control and 4-wheel antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist.
This overview covers the 3.8L trim only.
