Absolutely Impressive!

I recently traded in my Infiniti M for the Hyundai Genesis and cannot be more pleased. It is by far the finest vehicle based on Performance, Styling, Comfort and Value for the money. I found the room and comfort to be better then my Infiniti. Also, this has to be the quietest ride I have owned to date, and this comes after owning back to back Infinitis and a Volvo S-60 prior to that. If Hyundai keeps putting out vehicles like the Genesis, the sky is the limit! Oh, and you can't beat the warranty either!


Best Car UNDER 40k

Absolutely by far, the best overall value luxury car you can get for under 40k. Test drove the car as soon as it hit my dealership, and purchased 2 weeks later (after test driving other vehicles such as Lexus ES, Infiniti EX, BMW 330, etc). None of those compares to this cars stance, roominess, quietness, poise, and features.


The best bang for your buck

First of all, Cadillac man this vehicle IS rear wheel drive. I just came back from my dealer driving around this awesome car. I can tell you: dollar for dollar you can not beat this vehicle in terms of value for your money. Yes it may not be a "true" sports sedan, but in my opinion has the perfect balance of luxury, performance, reliability and performance in one value oriented car. The interior is absolutely HUGE. The stitched leather on the dash was a great surprise. Everything on the inside looks and feels of high quality materials. The car is very quiet. In fact, I asked the salesperson for the key to start the engine and the guy was like " sir, the car is already started." I was like "what?!" I didnt believe him until I looked at the tach of which said 400 rpm. I had the V6 model and let me tell you this thing can push. THe engine noise is very well contained. The handling is between an inifiniti M and a BMW 5 series. I found that the chassis is well balanced and handling is very good. This is definitely a great car. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a car in this segment. Fuel economy is one of the best too.


look out mercedes!

I was surprised at the true upscale luxury of this new full size sedan from the company with the angled "H". Hyundai has truely built a competetive product that anyone considering a bmw or mercedes should at least drive. The only thing missing is the expensive nameplate and ridiculous pricing. This vehicle will allow people in the under $100,000 per year bracket to drive a luxurious, powerful vehicle. Of course the mercedes crowd will snub their noses at the brand and continue to pay 4 times as much for the same ride and performance. My only wish is that hyundai chose to make this vehicle rear wheel drive.
