Congrats HYUNDAI!

I'll admit unti the Genesis cars came out I was not a big fan of Hyundai cars. I always looked at them as bad ecoboxes... the latest cars have changed my mind though. When I go to get a Coupe next year I'm not going to be ashamed to say I own a Hyundai, especially to my mostly domestic driving relatives and friends. Good job Hyundai with the category win!
As I always say, any publicity that helps the Genesis cars, will help sales, therefore motivate Hyundai to improve on the line. Sweet.
