this has gone too far
what did they say now
"The Hyundai Genesis has a 17 Speaker Audio System, the only other car that has that is a Rolls Royce Phantom..... And that costs $300k more."
Just saw it on TV, looking through YouTube...
Whats the deal with that gook whip? They have been comparing it to BMW, Audi,....etc
the genesis is not an overweight overpriced overengineered overachiever
id drive it
Well I do buy my car's for their sound systems. I have thought about it.
That is not really a comparison.
Well that settles it. Hyundai > Rolls Royce
like they compared it to the Porsche boxter... Pathetic
better than the ngrs that think a 300M is a bently
Who cares who they compare their cars to?
The other manufacturers probably just laugh.
are you trying to compare the 300C and the RR phantom?
The Lexicon system is nice and clean, but not extraordinary. IIRC, the bass is handled with free-air subs firing through the rear deck, so you can draw your conclusions from that.
And if they'd stuck with their original plan of dropping the Hyundai name from the car completely, and just calling it "Genesis" then they might actually have sold some by now. I guess an entirely new dealer network is kinda expensive, though.
Just to say "Oh hey, our car has the same speaker system as a rolls-royce!!!!!!
Is pretty fucking lame.
not the US version
I was goin to say, my wife has a Sonata and we talked about upgrading in the next year or so, and the Genesis is really high on our list. It's a really nice vehicle with a decently low price tag.
id definitely drive one. replacing 17 speakers would suck though.
When you're Hyundai, you'll try pretty much anything.
Not to detract from the car itself, though. It really is a very, very nice car, and it's a 180 degree turn from anything else they've put their hands on. If only they'd get rid of that fucking 1980s blue indiglo digital clock which sits front and centre in the dash and probably has an Elantra part number on it.
i would go for it. yeah its a hyundai but its a hell of a car for the money.
33-42 is not really low.
