Looks WAY too much like the Audi A7 in my opinion (not a bad thing but also not very innovative from a design standpoint). The interior is nice minus the stupid steering wheel.

Using chrome in 2020 should be against the law! Has some nice lines though.

It's crap, you'll see when drive one, interior feels so cheap and smells cheap, driving feel is terrible.
Hyundai........ i mean Genesis makes cheap cars for someone who can't afford real luxury car, let's say S Class, which in reality they're not even comparable.

Edit: front looks terrible and whole car is copy of Audi A7.

I'm just here for the overly aggressive hate to help justify their own purchase.


Seem to be nice cars. They're doing a great job of fitting into the market.

Most likely since they poached Peter Schreyer from Audi amongst other top tier designers..

Im not saying its in the same league as the Germans .... YET, But its marching in that direction faster than any other brand and they are already more reliable.
PS that dash to axel ration looks better on the Hyundai then the Audi that has the motor hung out in front of the shock towers...

Kinda hard to knock Genesis ( Hyundai ) the progress they have made.

It looks like they stole a couple design cues from every major luxury brand. Why not be innovative and create something fresh and exciting instead of this derivative bullshit?

I dig it.

If I were buying today it would be hard not to consider the Koreans. BMW isn't even on my list anymore. Easy to slot Hyundai in with Audi/Porsche and Merc.

Not sure why they feel the need for a 3rd sedan in a SUV world, I guess this will be their middle of the road luxury car similar to the 5 series, E class, A6. Assuming their G90 is targeted towards 7 series, S class, A8. IMO they should've revived the coupe instead. SUV will be next one up on their table tho.
