What it Is
Hyundai Concept Genesis Preview – New York Auto Show: In concept form, it’s called the Genesis, though we suggest Phaeton for the production version. That’s the name Volkswagen gave its luxuriously magnificent and exorbitantly priced uber sedan, the one that few bought because it wore a VW badge. A similar scenario would be feature a company like Hyundai offering a rear-wheel-drive “sport” sedan, slated in above the already spacious Azera and rumored to be powered by a V8. The difference, of course, is that Hyundai has proven successful in every applicable segment with its focus on quality, safety, and value. But will sport sedan drivers flock to Hyundai, a company known for soft-riding sedans and SUVs, for their thrilling daily commuter? If so, look for a heavy-duty crew cab pickup to be next.
