Hyundai Genesis Summary

Only two generations of the Hyundai Genesis were ever produced, the 2016 update being the final one. These days, the Genesis is called the G-70, manufactured by Genesis Canada, a subsidiary of Hyundai. The original vehicles are still some of the most popular choices for second-hand car buyers, thanks to their reliability and quality. Both Hyundai Genesis coupes (two-door) and sedans (four-door) are still in demand on the road due to their solid performance and features—even the first-generation vehicles have a V8 option. All models have excellent safety ratings as well—the 2009 model got five stars from the NHTSA.
