    "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."

    Who cares who they compare their cars to?

    The other manufacturers probably just laugh. :rofl:

    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. :hs: I guess an entirely new dealer network is kinda expensive, though. :o

    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.

    When you're Hyundai, you'll try pretty much anything. :rofl:

    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. :mad:
