Genesis is stiffer, more rigid, and lighter than
the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Lexus LS–
an impressive engineering achievement.

•  12-14% higher dynamic torsional rigidity than
   BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and
   Lexus LS
•  Lower body-in-white weight than these
•  5-link front and rear suspension
•  This rigid body structure allows Hyundai chassis
   engineers to improve two suspension goals that    normally conflict:
   •  Maintain precise steering and handling
   •  A more comfortable, quiet ride
