A superbly quiet in-cabin experience delivers a suite of sophisticated appointments to ensure the highest levels of comfort and passenger wellbeing, available across three discerning variants.

Genesis design balances a striking on-road presence with a highly rewarding driving experience and offers the safest and most luxurious journey you can take. Created to stand the test of time, Genesis is New Thinking.
