The 2018 Hyundai Genesis’ price will probably range between that of the previous G70 and the more advanced G90, in the region of $40,000 to $55,000. Gas mileage is going to improve over the previous Genesis model, G70 coming in around 17-19MPG/city and 25-30MPG/highway.

As can be seen from the above, it has a strong engine and even better suspension, it does possess the potential of towing but these have to be restricted to reasonable weights. In this case, 2,000 pounds and below will be reasonable. The car however does not possess any cool towing technology. This is not totally surprising as the car is designed in a sport character and, as such, not expected to be used in towing.
