2013 and 2015 Hyundai Genesis 0-60 Fastest Times and Specifications
Each car needs different time to reach the speed 60 miles per hour. Even though several cars were manufactured by the same automaker, if their engine is different, the time needed to reach can be different. For example, Hyundai Genesis 0-60 test results between the 2013 model and 2015 model are totally different. For example, the 2015 Genesis sedan with all-wheel driving system and eight-speed automatic transmission needs 6.2 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour.
The other Hyundai Genesis, also in 2015 model and also has eight-speed automatic transmission, but has rear wheel driving system needs 7.2 seconds to reach the speed of 60 miles per hour. Both 2015 Genesis sedans above are having 3.8L engine. 2015 Genesis also came in 5.0L sedan. This 5.0L sedan has rear wheel driving system and eight-speed automatic transmission. The fastest time needed by this 2015 Genesis 5.0L sedan to reach the speed of 60 miles per hour is just 5.2 seconds.
The older generation of Hyundai Genesis, 2013 Hyundai Genesis, was designed in three different versions: 2.0T R Spec, 3.8 R Spec, and 3.8 Track. All of them are coupe, equipped with rear wheel driving system, and completed with six-speed manual transmissions. The fastest time needed by 2013 Genesis 2.0T R Spec to reach 60 miles per hour is 5.9 seconds. This is slower than 2013 Genesis 3.8 R Spec and 2013 Genesis 3.8 Track that only needed 5.2 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour.
Let us focus on the newer generation of Hyundai Genesis, the 2015 Genesis. 2015 Genesis was designed with two different powers, the V6 and V8. There are only two driving type options for 2015 Genesis, rear wheel and all-wheel driving systems. The engines that are used to power 2015 Genesis are 3.8L V6 that produces 311 horsepower and 5.0L v8 that produces bigger power, 420 horsepower.
Even though 2015 Genesis didn’t break the speed record of Hyundai Genesis 0-60 test, many people still love these sedans and coupes because of some reasons including the quieter cabin, smoother acceleration, better ride quality, awesome interior, advanced entertainment and multimedia system, also high technology safety features. Just like the other cars, 2015 Genesis also has some shortcoming like the gas mileage is not too great, its backseat is not foldable, and the material quality is inconsistent. Let us see if Hyundai will release the next generation of Genesis with higher performance.
