2010 Hyundai Genesis vs. Its Competition

2009 Hyundai Genesis

Hyundai says the Genesis has the power and interior space of a BMW 7-Series or Benz S-Class, but the real targets here are Japanese luxury sedans like the Infiniti M four-doors and the Lexus GS range.

The Infiniti sedans have snappy handling and quick, responsive steering, as well as a leather-wrapped dash that's a dead ringer for that in the Genesis.

The Lexus GS sports a hybrid option, but significantly less interior room than the Hyundai, albeit with flawless execution.

The Chrysler 300 is a viable alternative, since it offers V-8 power and all-wheel drive, which the Genesis does not-but the 300 has a plainer cabin and less luxury credibility than any of these other sedans.
