The said concept has the ability to produce a throttle response that is exclusive for natural aspirated engines only. A lightweight concept and breakable parts are also installed in this model. The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Sedan has the ability to sprint from 0-60 mph at about 5 seconds, having 1,500 rpm in 300 lb-ft of torque and 6,400 in its power.

Having a 19mm rear sway bar, higher spring rates and higher damping rated shocks makes a lot of from its predecessors. A non-existent, crisp, and informative body roll and excellent steering wheel are some of the features in this class.
