The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Hyundai Genesis is a power play for luxury credibility-and it's just about the equal of mid-size luxury rivals from Lexus and Infiniti. The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class goes from exclusive to earth-friendly to exotically fast-in just a couple hundred thousand dollars.
