2015 Hyundai Genesis WOW

Just saw the pictures of the new Genesis and I have to say I'm very I impressed. Where you needed a doubbletake to realize the previous generation wasn't an E-class, the new one has more unique styling. I honestly think it looks like something that cost 3X what it actually does. Considering you can have this with a 429hp 5.0 V8 for the cost of a high spec 328i is stunning. Would I buy this over a 328i? Probably not but then again I wouldn't buy any Asian car over a German one. Still, it's a pretty impressive vehicle.

Considering the guy who designed the E90 also designed that car...

Hyundai is alright, I don't like how the previous generation Genesis coupe was a blatant knockoff of the Infiniti G35 and G37 Coupe.

IE: My old G35 Coupe beside a Genisis

I didn't know that this was the work of Joji Nagashima, but it doesn't surprise me. Interesting.

It might look good but how does it drive? I've heard so many people base their decision on looks rather than how the vehicle drives.

I'm not saying that's everyone but for me it's all about how the car handles and feels over looks and fancy gadgets, if they come as part of the package too then great bonus.

Probably a nice car, a great value, going to be reliable, but no going from the fact the materials are going to be poorer, fit and finish worse, and that its going to handle, be slow as, and look like shit than its supposed competitors from MB, BMW, and Audi.

They need their own ideas, not to copy like they have done to all their cars

Hyundai always rips off other auto makers. I don't know why people think this car looks good. The front looks like a LED happy ripoff of the Ford Fusion (since when does Hyundai have that type of grille?). Thought the old Genesis looked better.

I have to say that I drive the 2013 Genesis with the v6 more so than my 335i but it is a great car for its price. I'm sure that this new one is going to be a lot better and hopefully more sporty because the current one seems very boaty around the turns and the steering is lighter but then again every car has lighter steering than the e9xs. If I was stuck on a budget I would definitely get this because I am happy to sacrifice sport and fun for luxury and reliability.

Debadge it all except for the Genesis logo and people might think it's a Bentley. That logo is a blatant ripoff as well.

But the car does look beautiful. If it had a BMW logo with the same price I'm sure you all would be all over it.

I wouldn't be so sure about the fit and finish and materials. I've examined in detail the interiors of some of the upper end Hyundai models and I can't much to complain about. The interior trim fit and finish is spot on and the materials are very high quality. Honestly they are better then the f30's. BMW has actually taken a step back in material quality on some of their models.
