  • Should have included a Volvo and a Chrysler 300
  • Having a 2012 Genesis I am not impressed by the 2015 version. I was given one for a few days while mine was in for service. The first thing I found was that the seats are hard and much less comfortable the seat bottom is shorter so with my long legs it was very uncomfortable. The low profile tires make for a harder ride and the cabin is noisier than my "12 model.
    The interior is not that of a luxury car more like a Sonata and then the grill, What is that big piece of plastic in the middle of the grill it is UGLY. Hyundai needs to address that plastic it's on several models and looks like an after thought.
    Bottom line I will keep my 2012 IT is a luxury car
  • @kokomojoe - I appreciate the feedback from a real owner. You touched on some of the things I also didn;t like about the new Genesis. Though I do like exterior design, as far as luxury goes I think Hyundai took a step back. I do however own a 2011 CTS 3.6 DI, and I was provided a new 3.6 liter version for a few days while my 11 was in for service. The new CTS, though now appropriately larger for the class segment, is vastly improved in every way. Very impressed with what GM did.

    AWD is fine and all - but snow tires are what will really get you through. Combine a good AWD system with snow tires, and a sedan is pretty much unstoppable short of high-centering. On the other hand, many of these sedans will ship with summer high performance tires, which can be better than all-seasons in the rain, but turn into skis when it gets cold. A set of winter shoes is a must for these cars. One of the best mods I've made to my S4 was to get a set of winter wheels & tires. I get them swapped for free over lunch twice a year, giving me the traction I need for snowy winters, canyon carving and track days. It also gives me two different looks for the car - which I think is pretty cool!

    You could essentially just fill this list with 10 Audis and it would make perfect sense.
  • @kokomojoe - you must not have had one of the higher end models. Being an owner, I've been very impressed with the car. I looked at the A6 and E-Class as well, but the Genesis is an amazing value. You'd have to pay $15,000-20,000 more for a comparable Benz or Audi with a V6 and the same features as the Genesis Tech or Ultimate. The adaptive cruise (that plastic in the grille) works very well. The leather and seats of the Tech and Ultimate package cars are far nicer than the base seats; the leather is buttery soft and the seats are some of the most comfortable I've sat in, even on a 2000 mile road trip. Also, on the Tech and Ultimate packages there is a power seat bottom extender.
