Ugly. Looks like a Hyundai tuscon grille, with Maserati GT headlights, GTR styling, and a altima coupe chassis. Doesn't flow nicely together at all.

Eh.. I love the overall shape and what they are trying to do, but the cuts and lights don't look right.

Ugly. I preferred the previous gen's look better but would still never buy one. No matter how fancy your Hyundai is, it's still a Hyundai.

The hood ruins it for me. I can live with the front bumper if it has fog lights.

Yeah, fvck a 10 year/100k mile warranty for a well built car at a very reasonable price. I'd much rather spend money on a name.


Seriously, who gives a sh!t? I'd be all over a Genesis if I was hunting for an affordable fun car.

And I don't know how you can argue the looks. Yes, these are prefacelift, but I'm sure the facelifts will look just as good with a little work.

isnt the Genesis supposed to be the higher end stuff from them?

Why give it a similar grill to their other stuff, when previously neither Genesis cars did?

Not bad looking. Hyundai is definitely changing their image lately.
