Hyundai would like to think that the Hyundai Genesis competes with the likes of the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, but for most buyers of those models, the badge is a major portion of the value.
The M37/M56 and GS 350/460 are both tuned with a higher-performance feel than the Genesis, and the Hyundai's relaxed demeanor is better rivaled by standard editions of the Chrysler 300, which has been refreshed for 2011.
Other alternatives to Genesis might also include the front-wheel-drive Acura TL or Nissan Maxima, which can cost about as much as a Genesis in loaded form.
