Hyundai has reconfigured several of the options and trim levels for the Genesis Sedan in 2013. The most significant change is the deletion of the 4.6 liter engine from the model range. The Genesis sedan now comes in two flavors, base 3.8L and 5.0 R-spec. Also new for 2013 is an optional 8-inch display that fits neatly into the dashboard. The improved display houses the optional navigation system and is available as part of the technology package.
