Another award nomination for the Hyundai Genesis! The other two contenders for N.A. Car of the Year is the VW Jetta TDI and what I think is a station wagon gone wrong, the Ford Flex.

HYUNDAI GENESIS A FINALIST FOR NORTH AMERICAN CAR OF THE YEAR
KOREAN MANUFACTURER EARNS A PLACE IN FINALS FOR FIRST TIME IN 16-YEAR HISTORY OF AWARD

Detroit, 12/18/2008 When Hyundai introduced the all-new Genesis at the 2008 North American International Auto Show, it promised to shatter automobile paradigms by offering a sedan with capabilities and features comparable to the world’s leading premium sports sedans. That claim was underscored today when the North American Car of the Year jury announced Genesis as one of the three finalists in its annual quest to name the most outstanding and significant new car, besting competitors such as Nissan GT-R, Audi A4, Dodge Challenger and BMW 1-Series.


“We are extremely proud of the Hyundai Genesis,” said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America acting president and chief executive officer. “It’s our flagship vehicle. It is the ultimate expression of the engineering excellence found in all of our products. We are honored to be named a finalist for this prestigious award.”

This year the jurors considered more than 50 new vehicles before selecting the top three cars and top three trucks. Genesis’ spot in the North American Car of the Year finals marks the first time a Korean manufacturer’s product has made it to the final three.

U.S. domestic automakers have won North American Car of the Year eight times. Japanese automakers have won three times. European automakers have won four times. The Volkswagen Jetta TDI and Ford Flex are the other finalists this year.

The North American Car of the Year award is decided by a jury of 50 independent, full-time automotive journalists from the United States and Canada. This is the 16th year of the awards, which were inspired by the prestigious European “Car of the Year” awards. The U.S. program is administered by an organizing committee and is funded exclusively with dues paid by the jurors. Jurors judge the cars on a number of factors including innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar.

The winner will be named at next month’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 11, 2009.

Hyundai Motor America, headquartered in Fountain Valley, Calif., is a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Co. of Korea. Hyundai vehicles are distributed throughout the United States by Hyundai Motor America and are sold and serviced through more than 790 dealerships nationwide.

Dude, I was just fixxing to post this. Now that's something to be proud of. I hope they take it all the way. This car deserves it. I marked it as my top choice on $10 grand give away we filled out earlier for top pick. Maybe now people will recognize Hyundai's quality & give them a chance when they make their next auto purchase.:clap:
Haha sorry man, I guess I was the first with some free time. You are right about the Genesis deserving Car of the Year. I only fear that the people who are voting will be biased against Hyundai. Although I think Hyundai deserves to win the award I feel it will end up a runner up.
