We cannot remember how many times we have said this, but we are so surprised at the advancement the likes of Hyundai has made over the past five years or so, as some of their latest models are starting to give their German rivals something to think about. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is a fine example of this because this second-generation model ups its game once again.
The previous Genesis was already a great car, but there were some fundamental issues that made some of you think twice. However, Hyundai has gone about rectifying the shortcomings of the first-generation model, and it is the hope that the first round of Hyundai Genesis 2015 first drive video reviews focuses on all the hard work the Korean car maker has done.
We start with the Hyundai Genesis 2015 first drive review video that runs for 6:46 and while it is not the best of the bunch below, it does give you a good idea of what to expect from the new model. We do love the video-in-video shots, which shows us the reviewer doing the talking on the bottom left of the screen, while we also see him driving it in the main image. We just wish the guy wasn’t as wooden.
In the second video we get a greater insight into what makes the 2015 Hyundai Genesis so good and the work that has gone into designing the car. This review is a little different because while it was meant to be MotoMan test driving the vehicle, Lotus Cars Chief Engineer got to it first, although it does make for a great review as the two talk about the good and the bad points of the all-new Genesis in detail.
The final video is a little like the second video, where we get a small history lesson on the first-gen Hyundai Genesis, and the impact it made on the market. There were two things that gave the Genesis a bad name, the first was its poor driving dynamics and the second were those low-rent seats, so this video looks at how Hyundai has improved in these areas, along with an overall impression of the new model.
If you are interested in the new model, then we can tell you that the 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan price will start at $38,000, which is available to buy now.
