The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Hyundai Genesis is an extremely plush, comfortable luxury sedan, with a dash of sporty character; it costs less, but lacks the prestige of luxury-brand rivals. The G8 gives Pontiac real sport-sedan credentials and hits the mark with only minor faults.
