Default Holy Hyundai (Genesis)!

Autoblog link: No Hyundai logo on Genesis grille, supercharger may be coming in the future

Quote:
Speaking with Automotive News, Hyundai'* vice president of product development, John Krafic, said that Hyundai is expecting about 20-percent of buyers to opt for the 4.6-liter V8. Interestingly, Krafic said that cylinder deactivation and direct injection could be added on future models and that a supercharger could find its way under the hood to boost performance. No word on when either of these features would be added to the Genesis after it goes on sale this summer.

I seem to remember the grille in the commercial having an oddly keystone-shaped opening in the center of the vertical bar?


BTW, I imagine I won't be the last to say;
It'* still a Hyundai...

I think it'* gorgeous and I can't wait to drive one.

(Remember, people also said "It'* still just a Honda, Toyota, Nissan", and look at them now.)

And Hyundai/Kia has grown faster in 15 years than all 3 mentioned did in a 30 year span.

hyundai seems to be doing a pretty good job, at least to me, of changing their image.

that car looks pretty good, but it seems to have the ghost of an avalon trapped in it (maybe thats just me)
