In the beginning there were overpriced luxury cars, such as BMW, Lexus and Mercedes-Benz. Then, an automotive Prometheus decided to give fire to the people, and thus was born the Hyundai Genesis.
Now, I’ve always been a fan of luxury cars, and have ridden in and driven a wide variety of automotive masterpieces, so I was most certainly skeptical when along comes Hyundai touting the next Luxury Sedan. The only thing I knew about Hyundai was that they were cheap and had a great warranty, which I was pretty sure was their only real selling point.
The more I read, the more I was intrigued. The list of features in the Hyundai Genesis reads like a luxury checklist. Transmission used by Porsche, Maserati and more…check. Sound system used by Rolls Royce…check. The list goes on and on.
Their in-house technology was even more impressive. Drag coeffecient of 0.27? Incredible. Almost 100hp per liter out of the naturally aspirated engine? Fantastic! Best of all, $42,000 fully loaded for the V8 version, or 1/2 the price of some of it’s competition, and it comes with the same great Hyundai warranty as every other car they make. So I figured, alright, this deserves a drive.
I own an Internet Marketing business, and I am always in the market for a good business car, so I went to down to my local Hyundai dealership and took a test drive. All I have to say is Wicked Sweet, I want one.
This car is absolutely fantastic, and I’m comparing that to the luxury cars that I have driven, from Jaguars to Porsches. This car felt effortlessly fast, and yet was perfectly quiet and comfortable. The audio and navigation system were first class. The materials used appeared to be of the highest quality. I honestly had no complaints at all.
Thank you Hyundai for kicking the luxury automotive industry where it counts, and putting automotive “fire” within reach of mere mortals such as I.
