The August issues of Car & Driver and Automobile magazines feature the new Hyundai Genesis. It's a luxury sedan that rivals Lexus models costing at least $6,000 more. I think the Genesis gives Lexus (and Mercedes) a run for the money. In other words, I think it offers seriously good value compared to the established competition.
The problem comes when it's time to sell the car. The percentage loss compared to the competition will probably be far greater. The money saved at the initial purchase will be lost then.
Why does this interest me? I'm a car guy. I would never buy any of the cars I'm talking about. But I still find them interesting. Maybe it's like how I enjoy going to an art museum to enjoy looking at masterpieces. I will never own them, but it enriches my soul to enjoy the beauty.
By the way, I took the photo in March, at the Denver Auto Show - before the car was sold.
