Fair, but their platforms that compete in the same class as Genesis are obviously not unique to the luxury brands. ...

re: Hyundai's Genesis will now be an all new luxury brand. First model: The G90 - slackster
[quote]The G90 is Genesis’s full-size flagship, but unlike some luxury cars based on non-luxury counterparts, the G90 isn’t a Hyundai with a fancy badge slapped on. It uses its own dedicated platform and is powered by one of two exclusive engines: either a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 or a 5.0-liter V-8...

re: Hyundai's Genesis will now be an all new luxury brand. First model: The G90 - slackster
I'm not saying people buy then because of their reliability at this point, but they have clout because of years and years of quality high end vehicles. I'm not suggesting they're a Toyota or something, but they've been good enough for long enough. What is your issue with Hyundai's reputation? ...

re: Hyundai's Genesis will now be an all new luxury brand. First model: The G90 - slackster
Isn't reliability how these luxury brands made their name though? I'm not suggesting they're the most reliable brands on the road, but making cars that fall apart won't get you anywhere. That's the historical knock on Hyundai, but outside of the anecdote earlier in the thread, that hasn't been t...

re: Hyundai's Genesis will now be an all new luxury brand. First model: The G90 - slackster
[quote]No one has said the 7 series is reliable. Why do you keep changing models to compare the Genesis to though? [/quote] Just confusion because of the name change. The first part was a Hyundai Genesis itself, the last one under that name. I used a 3 series to get the MSRP in range, but you're ...

[quote]Resale value for starters. [/quote] 2015 Hyundai Genesis AWD vs 2015 BMW 328i AWD. According to Edmunds, Genesis experiences $250 more depreciation over 5 years despite $1000 difference in MSRP, saving you $750 in resale value. [link=(http://www.edmunds.com/car-comparisons/?veh1=2006...

re: Hyundai's Genesis will now be an all new luxury brand. First model: The G90 - slackster
[quote]Maybe you're the idiot for thinking that's the only reason someone wouldn't buy a Hyundai. [/quote] Sigh. By and large, for the last few years, there is no tangible reason someone would purchase most competitors in the same class as a Genesis. I won't lose sleep over someone who can't...
