2009 Hyundai Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Hyundai rolled out upgraded interior materials and workmanship on the Azera, Elantra Touring, and their all-new Genesis in 2009 as well as an updated Sonata model. The Tiburon was discontinued as the brand chose to add the Hyundai Tuscon, a far sportier model. Hyundai's new flagship, the Genesis, became their first rear-wheel-drive luxury model available in the US. It's base V6 engine with 290-horsepower and upgraded power train with V8 engine gave buyers new possibilities from Hyundai. EPA fuel economies fell between 18 and 25 for both engines, but the Genesis' standard features are what caught the eye of consumers. This new model included Lexicon audio, leather trim on the dash, adaptive headlamps, and built-in navigation. An optional backup camera was also available. Stability and traction control, active front head restraints, and antilock disc brakes also came standard on the Genesis. Meanwhile, the Tucson scores numerous five-star safety ratings while delivering one of the best basic warranties of the year.
