Fueled in part by a recovering economy, this revolution has an impact across all vehicle segments, including luxury buyers. For example, the Hyundai Genesis is the Near Luxury Car Segment leader. The Genesis has brought luxury buyers to Hyundai as Genesis buyers have household incomes very close to BMW 3-Series and Mercedes C-Class buyers. We see many Lexus, Infiniti, Cadillac and BMW owners trading in their vehicles for the Genesis. Hyundai competes by meeting a customer's security needs with perceived quality and successful programs such as "Hyundai Assurance" combining price, warranty and value a customer can love.

Getting familiar with the group...
Thanks for posting...just more kudos for the Genesis..

Aside: Check out the total Quality listing. Guess who got the HIGHEST total QUALITY points of ANY CAR...belong not to the high-and-mighty Lexus, nor to Acura or BMW..

Second place went to the S class. First place winner with 938 points - the Vette! (some might think this outcome invalidates their report but the new vette is indeed built with quality. Shame they are part of GM.)

I think its big news that Toyota/Lexus fell completely off the podiums - not a single win this year.
