2013 Hyundai Genesis Loses 4.6L V8, R-Spec Gets $300 Price Hike

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Sedan will see subtle changes for the new model year, with the discontinuation of its 4.6-liter V8 being the biggest of the changes.

Pricing for the 3.8-liter V6 base model will remain at $35,075 including destination charge, while the 5.0-liter V8 R-Spec model sees a slight increase of $300 to $47,675. Changes for the new model year include an updated navigation system with multimedia controller and driver information system, while the Technology Package will now include the Korean automaker’s Bluelink telematics service with the Ultimate Navigation system.

Buyers will now have an easier decision when choosing between the 333-hp V6 or the 429-hp V8 model now that the 4.6-liter V8 has been discontinued. Two packages will be available for Genesis Sedan owners: Premium Package and Technology Package (which adds to the Premium Package). The R-Spec model however will come with the Technology Package as standard. Those interested in a fully-loaded V6 model will be looking at spending $44,175.
