There are many people who accuse the Hyundai Genesis sedan of being derivative. Make no mistake, the Genesis is a fine car able to hang with offerings from Europe and Japan, but if these spy photos are accurate, then it looks like Hyundai has been playing copycat with its Bavarian rivals.
For 2011, the Genesis is slated to get a whole host of upgrades, among them are an 8-speed automatic gearbox and some more power (possibly the long rumored 5.0L Tau V8). Along with it come the requisite interior and exterior tweaks, the most significant of which is the BMW-like gearstick selector installed in the updated car. Hopefully underneath the new layout is the long awaited 8-speed transmission and some more juice.
