Why the 2012 Hyundai Genesis?

Exterior styling

Great looking car. I have it rebadged and I get at least stopped at least once a month with people complimenting and asking me about the car.

Fuel economy

This is my second Genesis. First one was a 2010 4.6L and this has the 6 cyl and it is nearly as quick but gets better fuel mileage. I get in the high 20's on the highway. Used to get 25 to 27 in the 8cyl. This 2012 has an 8 speed transmission compared to the 2010's 7 speed.

Audio & nav systems

The Lexicon sound system is fantastic. Best of any car I have ever owned and I have owned a bunch. The NAV system is terrible as is the iPod interface.

Reliability & durability

I put 65,000 miles on my last Genesis and have 15,000 on this one. They are tight and never rattle. They are reliable, smooth, powerful and comfortable.

Why Not the 2012 Hyundai Genesis?

Audio & nav systems

The NAV has a terrible interface. Very difficult to enter locations for route guidance.
