Hyundai Rewrites Genesis

Follow Marty



In the beginning, there was BMW and Mercedes. And then came Lexus. Now Hyundai is about to weigh in with its Concept Genesis luxury car. Hyundai? Aren’t those the guys who make cheap and cheerful little econoboxes? Once upon a time, maybe, but now Hyundai is moving up-market and is eyeing the luxury segment with this soon-to-be-in-production sedan that will cost barely half as much as its European and Japanese competition. Find out more in this report from TCC Team, Publisher of TheCarConnection.com.

  1. Le Marfquis Du boise de Boise a bois de Bologne par Paris is not gay,(like most US Americans) but he support their gay lifestyle,and sibce they can't afford BMW the rear of this car rear deck has similar design,The Lesbian UA Americans are admired as well(I wish I was Lesbian as wellmbut unfortunaately I'm a male chuvanist!),but never mind my ranting while I'm drunk like a Yankee Skunk(meaning any Republican)!,I'm Social Democrat,and I think that the rear end profile of the car is designed similar to Infiniti and Nissan's equivalent.The nice pretty Lesbo Yankee who arrived yesterday to Greece to the Island of Lesbos'll be much more noticed ajnd admire3d being Driven by ME in this car,any takers?!.

  3. I think Hyundai should really concentrate on building top of the line cars to the highest possible quality like Honda and Toyota did first while keeping the models to a minimum not try to duplicate these successful companies so fast with a luxury division. I think if Hyundai is not careful they will be doomed by failure too many products and no real customer base, with an overcrowed luxury market even if I had the money for a luxury car i wouldnt buy a luxury Hyundai I would buy a Lexus/Toyota product who has been here since 1967, or Infiniti/Nissan been here since 1976 cars you are almost guaranteed to get 300-400k miles on, Also Hyundai need to take a couple of marketing classes because when its time for the elite crowd to buy a luxury car they dont look for value, the more you paid for it the higher your status quo is.

  4. As a two Lexus family, I have too reply to jeeks. The average luxury buyer
    tends to be older and sure does look at value. I look at a Lexus as a value. They are dependable. In seven years with three cars, my total repairs have been two
    oxygen sensors. They don't no out of style. The dealers are capable and couteous.
    There are at least 20 in my neighborhood and folks keep them for 3-7 years,. Those
    that are leased are often bought after the lease.
    Here is the interesting development. I notice that some families have one Lexus and
    also a Toyota. I notice that there are more and more Hyundai's showing
    up in their driveways. Would I look at Gennesis? Sure. Hyundai's JD Power ratings
    are at the point that I am comfortable and the warranties are great. If I can get
    a better car for less that is a reasonable risk. Isn't that how Lexus got started? The key for me at this point will be the dealer experience at the time of sale and
    service. It is day and night between Toyota and Lexus. I want the Lexus experience.

  5. Being a hyundai owner and a big Hyundai fan I would definitely buy a luxury car from them if I had the money to do so. I've owned an accent for 3 years now and haven't had anything major go wrong with it, best car i've ever had! I love the quality and reliability of Hyundai and the pricing is perfect. If Hyundai makes a luxury car and keeps the price low, it'd be a good move for them.

  6. i have owned two accents, first a 1998 coupe with 253,000 miles before i sold it. last november, i purchased a 2007 accent. i have driving since 1980 and the hyundi vehicles have been the most relible vehicles i have owned. my 1987 ford pickup was tolarable, but every general motors vehicle was either unsafe to drive or did make it to it's destination!!!

  7. For over the years, Hyundai is known for it's brilliance towards small cars, especially like Santro/Atos, however if as the picture reveals the beauty of the forthcoming cars, it would be a great effort. But at the same time it is also very true that hyundai is very good at producing the small cars and should not forget that thing.

  8. KUDOS to Hyundai for showing such tremendous advancement over the years. It isn't easy shedding a reputation for building cheap, disposable cars. Hyundai has done a great job with the Veracruz, Sante Fe and Sonata. Stepping into the high end market is a natural next step.

  9. Its still a Hyundai.
    I look at it like this if you are a maniger at Taco bell, you still work at Taco bell. I have owned a many car's in the past 9 years ranging from $12,000 to over $60,000 I have never once even thought of a Hyundai. But I would have to say, the new Genesis has sparked and interest. only thing is it looks like every other Luxury Sedan out there. I would have liked Hyundai to come up with a different design.
