Upgrades across the board

The 3.8-liter V-6 and 4.6-liter V-8 Genesis models get a series of updates as well, with recalibrated steering and suspension damping in addition to uprated brake packages. For 2012, the base V-6 Genesis is rated at 333 horsepower and returns a fuel economy of up to 29 mpg on the highway. The 4.6-liter V-8, meanwhile, delivers 385 horsepower and 17 mpg city and 26 mpg highway fuel economy.

As mentioned, the 2012 Hyundai Genesis lineup gets some subtle styling updates. For the front view, the front grille has been enhanced, a more aggressive front fascia with larger intake openings was developed, and the headlights have been redesigned, adding LED accents and daytime running lights (DRLs).

From the side view, the standard 17 inch alloy wheel design has been freshened and the rocker panels have been refined. In addition, the mirrors now incorporate power-folding and puddle lamp functions, while the side window surround now receives a brushed aluminum finish. From the rear view, the tail lights have been redesigned and new exhaust tips fitted.

Stellar safety
Safety features include electronic stability control, eight airbags, electronic active head restraints, a lane departure warning system, parking sensors and a backup camera.

The new, facelifted 2012 Hyundai Genesis goes on sale in late March. In the meantime, check out our full coverage of the 2011 Chicago Auto Show by clicking here.
