Hyundai Genesis 2015
Hyundai is one of the most well-known and ambitious brands in the automotive industry. One of Hyundai’s major goals heading into the future is to lift its image from being the maker of ‘value-for-money cars - introducing the new Hyundai Genesis 2015. It is here to take on the big-name European brands and prove that Hyundai is a game changer.
The Genesis is a large car - marginally bigger than the Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon. It's also a little larger than the cars with which Hyundai would like to compete head on with - the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6.
The good and the bad
The good – The Hyundai Genesis is comfortable and luxurious and has the power of a V8 engine for a competitive price.
The bad – Fuel economy isn’t the highlight of this vehicle and the smart cruise control stop start function is a bit jerky.

Here is what Matt one of our novated lease consultant’s had to say about the Hyundai Genesis:

'When I first stepped into the Genesis, it definitely did not feel like I was sitting in a Hyundai. It had soft-touch leather seats, a large LCD screen and gadgets everywhere. Once on the road, the vehicle sat with a nice presence. The cabin was very quiet and ride very comfortable. I got a bit spirited with the accelerator and as the transmission kicked down a gear, the engine let out a roar and took off down the road. The power was effortless. I tested the Genesis at speeds around corners and it didn’t feel like as much of a barge as I thought. It seems like some of the luxury vehicles on the market now have some very affordable competition'.
