Heart and Seoul

Heart and Seoul

Hyundai has pumped all its energies and technologies into the Genesis, the Korean automaker's flagship in Singapore Origin. Beginning. "Genesis", a Korean inception.

The 3.8-litre V6 rear-drive saloon is Hyundai's first serious attempt at a luxury saloon in Singapore, albeit without a standalone showroom and separate, upmarket branding (like Toyota's Lexus).

However, instead of Hyundai's "H" logo, the Genesis gets its own emblem, which looks like the bewinged badges of honour belonging to Aston Martin and Bentley.

More important than the Korean won needed for a Genesis (full-spec Grand variant tested here) is whether the Korean saloon has won over our three judges - editor David Ting, associate editor Daryl Lee and our Torque guest driver for this cover story, Leslie Chang, a businessman and motoring enthusiast who owns a 3.3-litre Hyundai Azera.
