04/17/2009 Names All-New 2009 Hyundai Genesis 'Car of the Month' for April, the leading provider of pricing information and market research for cars, classics, RVs, motorcycles and boats, announced today it has selected the all-new 2009 Hyundai Genesis as the "Car of the Month" for April. After tremendous feedback from the first "Car of the Month" pick, the 2009 Audi Q7, selected the 2009 Hyundai Genesis because it's simply one of the best new cars on the market.

"The Hyundai brand will never be the same again! The Genesis has shattered all stereotypes of what a Korean car can and will be. The Genesis is luxurious, spacious, functional and comes packed with horsepower. The overall performance, combined with an elegant interior, creature comforts and affordable price point, make the 2009 Hyundai Genesis our 'Car of the Month'," said Michael Caudill, spokesperson.

The Genesis is Hyundai's new flagship and its first rear-wheel-drive luxury car in the US. The vehicle reviewed featured a 4.6L V8 producing 375 horsepower paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The horsepower and performance are a great selling point, but it's the interior that really makes the Genesis stand out. Many vehicles today have cluttered interiors with knobs and buttons just about everywhere. The Genesis dash and instrument panel are clean and open. Connecting a Bluetooth device took less than two minutes and the clarity was perfect. The price is another factor that sets the Genesis apart. With the MSRP starting at $32,250 for the V6 and $37,250 for the V8, you can't find another luxury vehicle on the market that gives you quite the same experience for the price.
