The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you want a well-finished interior, plenty of power, and luxury-car ambiance all around—but you can do without the brand cachet—the 2014 Hyundai Genesis could add up as a good value. The 2014 Lexus ES is an attractive package in its segment, and the hybrid model makes for a very compelling alternative to more expensive green luxury cars.
