The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is no longer just a great luxury-car value; it's a legitimate alternative to the heavyweights. The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up.
