slightly offtopic ... their top of the line G90 5.0 goes for $87K + taxes (I see no freight/pdi and other fees). Anyone here actually bought one, I really wonder if someone would pay $100K for this ?

Just doing some lease calculation on this model. Based on their website info, the 39 months lease has a residual of 36% (OMG ! super pathetic , I think Genesis wants you to simply buy it out at the end as they really don't want it returned as they know it's virtually worthless at auction)

If it was 3.3TT, I'd be seriously looking at this provided it's costs and assuming that it's competition is more in line with the ATS-v, it really needs to undercut that high price tag.

I'd rather an ATS at this point withe the 2.0, same with the G90 and CTS-v.

Supposedly this will be the entry level model so it could be ~$42-45,000 to compete against the Audi A4 area??

Doesn't Hyundai Canada offer to bring test drive vehicles to our homes or offices?

If Genesis is going to compete against the Euro brands, they cannot have the lease residual at such low % (assuming they are following the G90 example as I have just researched).

I think they know this and it is why they are creating the Genesis brand..

They also hired a ton of BMW people but I don't have Hyunda insider info :(

Seems a good lease takeover target if this will be the case with the G70 but only if there are silly people to lease and pay such high monthly payments when there are cheaper alternatives.

I meant undercut the caddy pricing, not that the G70 will be $80,000 but the ASTV base is. If their top tier car is the G90 and it's under $90,000, well, that's well below anything else in the market, but again, it comes down to someone willing to drop that much money on a 'hyundai' when they could have their 'prestigeous brand'. K900 anyone? I'd drop like $50,000 on something like this, but must be v6 and manual.

Price includes a bunch of features beyond just the car - which I guess is a attempt to compete in the luxo segment.

Courtesy Vehicle Service
5 Years/100,000 km
While your Genesis is away for maintenance at the local service centre, a courtesy vehicle will be left at your disposal.

Complimentary Scheduled Maintenance
5 Years/100,000 km
Enjoy a worry-free ownership experience that includes Complimentary Scheduled Maintenance for 5 years or 100,000 km, whichever comes first.

Genesis at Home Service
5 Years/100,000 km
For service and maintenance appointments, simply contact Genesis at Home and we’ll come to your location of choice to pick up your vehicle. While your vehicle is serviced, a Genesis courtesy vehicle is left at your disposal.

No Hyundai is worth over 30k.


I know it looks decent and costs a lot... but its still a Hyundai.

It'll be decades before people broadly associate Hyundai and Kia with true competition for luxury brands.

Nice design and offering and hopefully they can steal some of the lower end customers from BMW/Audi/Mercedes/Jaguar. At least forces them to step their game up.

This car is going to scrape against 50k out the door with a residual value that competes against the excrement I ejected yesterday into my toilet.

The only people who will pay for this toad are those who are too dumb to know it. For 50k, you could be getting a nice C300, why get a KIA?

Everytime I see a dude drive a Genesis, I am thinking how dumb this guy must be, to shell out money that can get you a nice C class but ended up driving a better looking KIA.
