Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    It's really copying a lot of cues. I see BMW, Lexus, Aston Martin.

    I see BMW,Lexus, Aston, Nissan, Infiniti, Audi…I mean, seriously?

    To me it simply looks awesome (proportions, low-slung look, etc). A step in the right direction away from the comparatively generic old design. They should keep the Genesis badging all around, though, and avoid slapping the slanted H on the trunk.

    Not a huge fan of the fascia, but the design in general is really sharp. Well done.

    I agree with gloss, beautiful silhouette, nice back end (although not very original). The Audi/Infinit headlamps look good, but that grill is awful. They really should have stuck with the prior one, which was elegantly boring.

    A much more stylish version than the prev gen which was almost too traditional. Good for Hyundai, let the Equus be a little more staid. My first impression is this has a Jaguar-like feel to it, at least from the side. I don't think the grille looks too large, maybe because the chrome bits are not outrageous.

    I like the 2014 look better, this is to Sonata

    I like everything about this 5 Series knock off except the grill.

    Looks great. Definitely much leaner than the current generation model.

    Exterior is a copy of BMW 5 Series, hope they have a good engine in there.

    Seems like a lot of people are saying BMW, but my first impression is Audi. That gaping maw and the LED running lights... Sure, Audis look uber classy, so if there's a design to copy that would be it. But at the same time the overall design just seems too derivative.

    Cross between a 5 series and an Audi A7.

    looks sharp. Enough with these comments about resemblance to BMW, Audi, merc, lexus... The head of design is now Peter Schreyer, former Audi/VW design chief, so yea, expect some similarities..

    Don't get me wrong, I like the look of the new Genesis, but boy are the looks derivative. A German luxury car mash-up.

    looks like a bigger version of the new Mazda6
  • garrymgarrym Member Posts: 27
    Yeah, yeah it looks like this, the grille is from that. So what if some styling cues might be from some other noteworthy luxury cars. As far as I'm concerned this car looks great. Are you Lincoln designers seeing this?

    Dare I say I would buy one?

    Shamelessly steal ideas--I see a little bit of Audi, Lexus, BMW and Infiniti. Hyundai came up with a 'very nice' looking car!

    There's always comments about how Korean design cues look like BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, Audi, and Infiniti. I get that to an extent, but those brands all borrow from each other as well, and look very similar. They all stay within the very narrow scope of how "luxury" and "premium" are defined to look at this time. Short of releasing a sphere car the Koreans will be accused to heavy borrowing, mostly due to doubts that the Koreans can do premium at all.

    Seems lke We are done copying BMWs - We seem to go after Audis these days??
    Don't expect to carve your niche in the luxry segment unless you come up with your own designs from teh ground up...
