Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan might launch in India
A new generation of Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan made its global debut recently. Now it is revealed that Hyundai is considering an Indian launch as well. If the CBU does hit Indian showrooms, it will be in limited numbers only. The flagship sedan will carry a price tag of about Rs. 45 lakhs.
The Genesis is longer than Mercedes E-class and comparable to BMW 5 Series in terms of length as it measures 4,990mm. Apart from all the perks offered by luxury sedans in the segment, the Genesis is loaded with 18-inch alloy wheels, 9.2-inch high definition touchscreen interface, 17-speaker Lexicon audio setup, Blue link infotainment, leather upholstery, 12-way power heated front seats and rain sensing wipers.
Global Genesis models come with two engine options, a 3.8-litre V6 giving out 311 bhp and a whooping 5.0-litre V8 that pushes out a massive 420 bhp. The popular rear wheel drive vehicle from Hyundai’s lineup will be driven be an eight-speed gearbox, with the 3.8-litre variant offering an optional all wheel drive system that does 0-100 km/hr in 6.5 seconds and upto 240 km/hr max.
While all the above may impress the kind readers, it is yet to see how far Hyundai will make them buyers of this sweet drive, as it will not be easy for the Korean car maker to stick a flag next to the Germans’ in this segment.
