- Genesis Model Type
- Genesis G70
It's also the mechanics. They're still working on or fixing KIA and Hyundai vehicles from the early days and so they perpetuate how cheaply built they are.It likely has to do with the $ or it could be the social media reception. When I see people talking about the G70 on social media it’s always a yeah but it’s still a Hyundai and Hyundai makes garbage statement. That may not be reality and may just be a cheap pop shot but it is a sentiment that Genesis will have to deal with when trying to take share from the luxury market. Brand snobs and poverty people likely will not be the demographics that Genesis will target.
The funny thing is the more hate I see from BMW owners and from the social media dregs the more I’m drawn to the G70. I think as long as they keep making beautiful vehicles that perform well at a decent value that brand identity will change and you’ll see the big boys start to review more Genesis. Christ if this had a Porsche logo Car and Driver would have reviewed every trim level and color by this point.
And Subaru gets top marks from CR even though they drive absolutely terrible and slow and their flat 4 burns oil!
Their WRX, STI, and BRZ drive better though! All others feels very generic!
