Hyundai's new Mercedes...

Looks a little bit too much like an E-class for my liking, however, that's not necessarily a bad thing, is it? Picture at the bottom of post!

The Genesis comes with lots of standard kit, including adaptive cruise control, a start-stop button, xenon headlamps and Bluetooth phone connectivity.

Safety features such as electronic stability and traction control, eight airbags and active headrests are likely to be fitted. Power is from a choice of 3.3 and 3.8-litre V6 petrol units, plus an all-new 4.6-litre V8.

The eight-cylinder engine generates 375bhp and drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. This should provide a 0-60mph sprint time of less than six seconds. When the petrol-only Genesis goes on sale in the US next year, it will start from $30,000 (£15,000).

However, unless a diesel engine is added to the line-up, itís unlikely the car will be sold in the UK.

Clicky!

Also, it's not Hyundai, it's "Genesis".

Did you see the commercial during the Super Bowl? "M3 performance at 3-series price". It's pretty cool.

Looks like a Chrysler, and it's still a Hyundai.

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.
