2012 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 RWD Review
says:
Dollar for Dollar this is a better car. The seats are better for longer drives. Its fast off the line and the trunk holds 3 sets of golf clubs. Great on bumps and handeling. More like a Lexus.

Overall:

Genesis R-spec — The performance of the car is stellar. Once you drive the Genesis R-Spec nothing else will compare. Strong acceleration on tap. Emergency auto braking kicked in on the 405 freeway one day - avoided an accident. Bluetooth and nav easy to use.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast. Loaded with features.

Cons: Mileage is about 20-21 mpg for me - commuting 90 miles/day.

Pros: Unbelievable machine ! 28 mpg on hwy

Cons: paint chips easy
