2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8

  • Price: $34,200
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 19 mpg
    • Highway - 29 mpg

Arguably the best luxury-car value available, the 2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 embarrasses cars costing tens of thousands more. It pampers, propels and protects with the best of them.

All alliteration aside, using a 333-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Genesis 3.8 is quick for a large car. A wide trunk opening provides access to 16 cubic feet of cargo room.

The roomy interior is stuffed with luxury appointments, such as leather seating, as well as senior-friendly features like keyless entry/start, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated outboard mirrors with integrated turn signals, eight-way power adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support, Bluetooth connectivity, and a five-year roadside assistance warranty.

Available options include such items as parking sensors and lane-departure warning.
