Four years ago, Hyundai introduced a automobile that was meant to shake adult a top echelons of a mid-size luxury class. Much like Toyota and Honda had finished in a past for Japanese luxury with Lexus and Acura, Hyundai felt it was time for Korean luxury to come to a fore.

The Genesis sedan was that car.

Hyundai had gotten a bad swat over a years for flagging peculiarity and cars that felt cheap. The Genesis was only another step they were creation in a product rebirth meant to move dash to a brand.

The cars are proof to be beautifully done and reliable. And if they do mangle down, a classical Hyundai 10 year/100,000 mile guaranty is still in tact. Many people done a switch only for that coverage.

But how does a Genesis smoke-stack adult to one of a biggest German rivals, a BMW 5-Series?

We recently spent a week with a 2012 Genesis 3.8, and on paper, it’s a really estimable competitor. The BMW 535i has a starting price of $52,000 and comes with a 300 horsepower (on premium fuel) true 6 engine that achieves 31 MPG on a highway.

Our Genesis 3.8 was entirely installed with satellite radio, navigation, exhilarated seats, and a premium stereo. The 333 horsepower V6 uses unchanging gas and gets 29 MPG on a highway. The price for all this luxury and convenience? A small $39,000.

So, is a BMW badge value a additional price?
