What do you think? The Hyundai Genesis is supposed to be a decent, well built, nice car. The Passat replacement is supposed to get a TDI engine but is supposed to be bigger, decontented, and "more American ", whatever that means. I assume that means no manual. Will they be competitors? I've priced out a loaded 3.8 Hyundai Genesis at about $42,000 jaw drops but that includes xenon, navigation, heated/cooled seats, leather dashboard, smart cruise control, and premium audio, so I'm really comparing it to a loaded Audi A6 or BMW 5.
