2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan prices and options released

While the base new 2015 Genesis sedan has a $2,800 hike than the current 2014 model, it also includes better upgrades that the 2014 base model does not have. For example:

Wheels: the new Genesis has 245 width tire as standard, while the 2014 model only has 235;

Wipers: the new one has rain-sensing wipers, the 2014 one does not have;

Navigation system: the 2015 model has it as standard, the old model is an extra-cost option;

Rearview camera: standard feature for the new, extra-cost option for the old.

Before I leave you guys with the following Hyundai official press release to dig more, my personal 2 cents for those of you who are considering purchasing a mid-size rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan recently, BUT with limited budget: go and grab a 2014 base Genesis in your local dealership’s inventory – since the new models starts to roll into their parking lot and the 2014 Genesis becomes obsolete, there will be huge discount on the old models. Some readers told me they have been successful to negotiate for a base 2014 Genesis with a price starts with the number “2”.



Well-equipped Starting Price under $40,000 includes Impressive Safety and Technology Features

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 1, 2014 – During a gathering of top automotive and business media at the national drive event for the 2015 Genesis, Hyundai announced a compelling pricing package for the all-new premium sedan. Hitting showroom floors later this month, Genesis starts at $38,000 for the well-equipped 3.8L V6 and $51,500 for the 5.0L V8 model. The combination of bold design, superb driving dynamics, unmatched standard technology and attractive pricing positions Genesis as the premium sedan to beat.

“The all-new Genesis rivals the best premium sedans in the world, at a price point many thousands of dollars less,” said Dave Zuchowski, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “Our 2015 Genesis represents a bold step forward for Hyundai and reinforces the successful strategy of marketing our premium models under the Hyundai brand umbrella, rather than a costly separate luxury brand sales channel. As a result, we’re able to pass the benefits of this strategy directly to our valued customers.”
