I love this concept... And I have seen a touring demo model.
But has anybody actually driven one of these new Equus from Hyundai?
Handling..crisp or mushy?
I have seen this car only in pictures. The dealer still has not gotten one in to look at. But the Genesis looks so "Mercedes" like, I have to guess this will be even more so!
Please get it off the floor and onto a road. Let us know how it drives.
I have a Lexus now and Hyundai is the brand that is coming on strong as a replacement for my Lexi fetish.
AND I wouldn't be lost in a sea of Lexus'sssssss'
My wife works for the manufacturer and we had an opportunity to take one for a drive a few months ago. In a word...awesome. The attention to detail is top notch, it looks and rides like a luxo sedan should, and the acceleration was downright startling. The company hasn't set a high sales target, but I'm guessing they will be pleasantly surprised by the number of copies leaving the dealerships. They should be arriving in the selected dealerships in the coming days.
Next up....the Veloster sport coupe. It will debut at the Detroit show next month.
Well...that is cool! Any indication if the production vehicle will be substantially different from your test driver?
Great to hear speed was up to par. Big concern that they bring out a look-a-like but leave it underpowered. Will you get another shot at one when it is properly "released"?
OH...Lexus or BMW like in handling?
Thunks on doors and stuff? Good?
Uh.....Good news on losing that big hood ornament!
Bobb - agreed on this. I think they need to just come out with a new brand name that screams quality and gets away from the stereotype Asian market.
I have a 7 Series BMW but have driven the Genesis and think its a stellar ride.
In the dealership YET????
Was supposed to be by the "end of the year"....getting kinda close!
