2009 Hyundai Genesis Sedan First Look - Kelley Blue Book Interviews Hyundai VP
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS VISIT:
After entering the U.S. market with an inexpensive (some might say cheap)
subcompact car more than 20 years ago, Hyundai has continued a climb
upscale. Now the brand is taking its most ambitious step in that direction
ever with the introduction of the Hyundai Genesis, a luxury sedan with the
amenities of vehicles costing thousands of dollars more. Though intended to
compete against the likes of the Chrysler 300C, Lexus ES350 and the Pontiac
G8, the new Genesis actually channels attributes of even more expensive
models, like the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Powered by
either advanced V6 or V8 engines, the rear-drive Genesis is filled with
upscale items like adaptive front lighting, proximity key with push-button
start and a truly amazing Lexicon 7.1 surround-sound audio system. Kelley
Blue Book's Jack Nerad speaks with Hyundai's John Krafcik regarding this
exciting new car.
