- Genesis Model Type
- 1G Genesis Sedan (2009-2014)
Hi, I just wanted to get your opinions on the road and interior noise on the 2009-2014 sedans. I will state my opinions, I am disappointed. Whenever going over certain rough surfaces, the interior noise is very loud. There is no out of the ordinary noise, this is just the car driving. I am running Michelin Premiere LTX Tires. I should make a point that I was in a 2015 Dodge Ram Crew Cab and the tire and road noise was quieter than my 2011 Genesis sedan. However, I did feel more insulated from the road and cars in the genesis. Which brings me to another point. The car does not have enough insulation. I can hear lots of cars outside and feel like I am their business. Honestly, the noise levels and insulation are more like a very nice normal car as opposed to a luxury car. Now I haven't ridden in or driven a G80 or G90, but I'm sure they would be quieter (sat in one and the insulation was much better than my 2011). But I still find my Genesis loud even for a 2011 luxury car. Just wondering what you guys think. How does it compare to an E class or 3 series (either from that time or today)?
