The car is built on a completely new rear-wheel drive architecture. It has an almost perfect ratio of the weight distribution of the front and rear parts in the proportion of 52:48. In the production of Genesis, gluing technology is used, which complements the traditional body welding. Critical joints with a total length of 90 m are joined by gluing, providing a more durable chemical compound. And only after this is done spot welding.

The interior is surrounded by comfort and luxury. Soft leather upholstery, luxurious wood trim, fine fabric, polished metal inserts all contribute to creating an atmosphere of prestige. This impression is enhanced by the driver's seat with heating, ventilation, and pneumatic adjustment of the lumbar back to ensure maximum comfort. The driver's seat is adjustable by means of an electric drive in 12 positions, providing comfort in any variant of landing. The climate control with humidity and rain sensors, automatic wipers and electric rear window curtains completes the picture. Noise isolation at the highest level.

The top versions are equipped with a 4.6-liter Tau V8 engine with a power of 368 hp, and a 6-speed ZF automatic transmission with the ability to manually shift SHIFTRONIC. Genesis acceleration time with this engine from 0 to 100 km / h takes less than 6.0 seconds. For a more economical movement, two more V6 petrol engines are offered: 3.3 liters (268 hp) and 3.8 liters (290 hp) equipped with a valve operation control system (CVVT). Both power units use a 6-step "automatic" with the ability to manually switch Aisin SHIFTRONIC.

The undoubted advantage of Genesis is smoothness. The merit of this air suspension is EAS, which is offered as an option. It is noteworthy that the Genesis body can rise by 30 mm, increasing the ground clearance for driving on bumpy roads (but there is a restriction - you can only move in this mode at a speed of up to 70 km / h). When it reaches 120 km / h, the car automatically reduces ground clearance to 15 mm, providing optimal aerodynamic performance. The electronic system of continuous control of the rigidity of gas shock absorbers (CDC) ensures a comfortable ride, regardless of road conditions. There are Sports, High and Low modes that meet the individual needs of the driver.

In the headlight system, instead of conventional xenon lamps, lamps with lower energy consumption and with higher light intensity (HID) are used, which in their characteristics are close to daylight. In such lamps the beam of light is more concentrated, providing maximum night visibility, and not distracting other drivers. In addition, Genesis headlights automatically adjust the lighting in the direction of maneuver. The car, if desired, can be equipped with an adaptive lighting system (AFLS).

In terms of active and passive safety, Hyundai Genesis is included in the leading group of cars in the world. Standard for the Korean automaker electronic stability control system (ESC) and eight airbags, replenished with new elements. For example, electronic head restraints are installed in the sedan. Eight sensors in the front and rear bumpers, and a rearview camera make parking a lot easier. Genesis-mounted radar combined with smart cruise control automatically adjusts the speed of the vehicle depending on the distance to the vehicle in front of you.

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published the results of crash tests on the Genesis sedan. As they say on the official website of the organization, in the test for the protection of passengers in a frontal collision, which is conducted at a speed of 56 km / h, the car received the maximum rating of five stars. NHTSA also noted that the chances of passengers getting injured on impact are less than 10 percent. For the protection of the driver and the passenger in a side impact, as well as in the safety test when overturning, the Genesis sedan also received five stars. Representatives of the NHTSA added that the likelihood that people in the car will receive any serious injuries is extremely small, and the chances of a car tipping over in a collision are only 10 percent.

In 2008, at the New York Auto Show, the official debut of the rear-wheel drive four-seater coupe Hyundai Genesis Coupe took place. Over the appearance of the Genesis Coupe worked in the design center Hyundai in Irvine, California. The coupe is designed on the same rear-wheel drive platform that was used on the Genesis sedan.
