    Unfortunately, they also borrowed front end design cues/elements from the restyled 2018 Sonata (i.e., grill mesh design, horizontal "slit" DRL/Fog lights and lower shaped chrome strip) - to me, that is a bad move if you want to build separation from cheaper Hyundai cars:

    Looks more like a compacted version of G80 Sport IMO.

    I can see an argument for both, but to fit in with their current styling choice, there's only so many spaces to put different design elements, I think they've done an excellent job. Car looks fantastic both inside and out.

    Their decision making on launch is a little confusing as they are'nt releasing it until 2018... there is a new 3 series around the corner and the Tesla Model 3 is about to hit BIG TIME IMO. I predict they will have to really cut prices.. even BMW will have to cut prices to compete.

    I agree. Great job of integrating it into the Genesis line. Derivative is a popular word but I can't imagine what folks expected it to look like and still be identified as a Genesis.

    I definitely like the front end of the G70 more than the Q50. The back is kind of a toss up. I'm not sure yet. The cars do look similar from the sides but a lot of cars do. If it doesn't look similar to one shape, it'll look similar to another...

    People love to complain about this bit looks like that bit from some other car... whatevs.

    My concern is simply whether the design is both cohesive and attractive. And I'd say they have succeeded on both counts. First drive reports are coming in and so far they are very encouraging. I could definitely see this in my driveway a couple years down the road.
