The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Hyundai Genesis is a power play for luxury credibility-and it's just about the equal of mid-size luxury rivals from Lexus and Infiniti. The 2008 Mazda RX-8 has a strange appeal: It's a sportscar with soft handling and seating for four.
