You are in the Hyundai Genesis
What is this discussion about?
Hyundai Genesis, Lexus GS 350, Car Comparisons, Sedan
Comparison Test: 2009 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 vs. 2008 Lexus GS 350 - Hyundai isn't shy about its targets for the Genesis. "While Genesis will compete for customers with cars like Lexus ES, Chrysler 300 and Cadillac CTS," the company stated in a press release about the car's pricing, "Genesis' performance capabilities and luxury features are comparable to sedans costing tens of thousands of dollars more."

You paid 30,000 plus tax, title and license for a V6 with the Tech package, which includes Premium Plus. Is that correct?
Which Atlanta dealer?
#147 of 152 Top 9 features - CORRECTION

Rain-sensing intermittent wipers are offered on the Lexus GS...so this passage:
"In comprehensively equipped luxury vehicles, why should the driver be burdened with the nightmare of turning on the wipers when it rains? Hyundai offers rain-sensing wipers on the Genesis; Lexus doesn't on the GS."
is not correct.

I probabaly think they meant to say its standard on the Genesis but optional on the GS.

"The Genesis has a huge trunk with 15.9 cubic feet of space"
I'm sorry, but 16 ft^3 is in no way, shape, or form a "huge" trunk for a vehicle of this size and mass. The fact that the Lexus has only 13 ft^3 is pitiful. But a 20-year-old Mazda 626 that's more than a foot shorter and more than a half-ton lighter has a trunk the same size as the Hyundai--the Genesis needs closer to 20 ft^3 to be considered impressive, or even adequate.

Cars are not being designed with trunk space. Anything practical in that sense is a wagon these days, or a hatch. The Lexus is reliable, and has a very big customer base. www.lexusenglewood.com

Agree, trunk space is not a concern for most people these days. A lot of the trunk space is being given over to back seat room, which more people care about.
BTW, I was in the Army Reserves for many years and would go on three week assignments. Had to take uniforms, field gear and reference materials and work materials PLUS civilian clothes for the duration. Got it all in Datsun B210, Fiat 124 Sport Spyder, Nissan 330ZX and Mazda RX7 convertible.
People who want a lot of "space" to carry stuff buy SUV's for the most part.
