Genesis has focused on keeping up the comfort levels high in the interior without compromising on practicality. The first two rows are roomy enough, road noises do not reach the cabin, and ride quality feels smooth. However, the infotainment system could have been more upgraded and user-friendly.
It comes in a two-row setup, with a third row available as optional. The front seat has a 41.6-inch legroom with leatherette-covered seats. Some notable features include bucket seats, 12-way power adjustable and height adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, 12-way power adjustable and height adjustable passenger seat, and 2 memorized seat settings for the driver’s seat. Multi-level heating is also standard. The rear seat has 58.2 inches of legroom with reclining seats. Height adjustable headrests are available for the front and rear seats. The optional third row is somewhat cramped, and good for children only.
The interior has a clean and minimalist design that goes well with the luxury image of the vehicle. Genesis offers premium upholstery, wood trimmings, and fancy accents to make the cabin look tasteful. The seats are comfy and supportive. The third row seems like an unnecessary add-on, more so because it reduces the cargo area.
Genesis hasn’t been able to impress us much with its infotainment options. You get a sleek 14.5-inch display with 12 speakers, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB connection, and satellite radio. Handling the system can be a bit tricky.
Overall height and space
This midsize SUV is 194.7 inches long, 77.8 inches wide, and has a height of 67.5 inches. It has a 8.1 inch ground clearance, which means the seating position is higher and the vehicle can handle bumpy terrains.
When all the seats are in place, the base cargo area is 11.6 cubic feet, which is quite small. You can max it out to 84 cubic feet by folding down the rear seat and the third row.
