For 2013, the Hyundai Genesis gets some tech upgrades in the form of an eight inch touch screen and a larger 64 GB drive.
The 3.8-liter V6 car’s technology package and 5.0-liter V8′s R-Spec trim levels are now available with the optional eight-inch screen, along with Hyundai’s new ultimate navigation system with Blue Link telematics. The new display features a new structure meant to be more intuitive, an enhanced voice-recognition system and new hot keys to give the driver more immediate control of the infotainment system. The standard 64 GB hard drive allows you to store music, video and images.
Upgrades for the navigation system include displaying the active speed limit, detailing the next three turns, showing real pictures of upcoming street signs and detailing which lane the driver needs to be in when coming to a juncture in the road. Other convenience features include voice text messaging, recall advisor, stolen vehicle recovery and an eco-coach.
For 2013, the Genesis is also dropping the 4.6-liter V8 option, and making the 5.0-liter direct-injected Tau V8 engine available exclusively with the R-Spec package.
