Hyundai broke the luxury car mold with the debut of the rear-wheel-drive Genesis in 2009, and raises the bar for 2010 with an improved suspension, available adaptive cruise control and an enhanced navigation system. The impressive V8 engine options puts 375 horsepower to the ground. Though it doesn't have a prestigious luxury brand badge, this exceptional car deserves consideration. The capacious interior is richly appointed and Lexus-quiet at cruising speed, with creature comforts found on much more expensive competitors.
