The 2015 Hyundai Genesis lands between the E-Class and the S-Class—as well as between the BMW 5-Series and 7-Series—in size.
Yet it's priced about in line with the smaller Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3-Series, and Audi A4.
And it's only offered in ten different build combinations—which makes it quite a different animal than the luxury sedans from Europe, which can be optioned in countless combinations of stand-alone extras.
Most of these rivals have an advantage in that they're offered in one, or several, high-tech green powertrains, with hybrid or clean-diesel variants.
Meanwhile, the Genesis is a surprisingly strong rival to the Acura RLX—at a better price.
We'd also consider the Cadillac CTS, Chrysler 300, and Nissan Maxima to be rivals.
