The IT Nerd Award For The Best Car Over $40K Goes To: Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Ultimate


I have to admit that I had a tough time choosing between the Volvo V60 R-Design and the Hyundai Genesis 5.0 Ultimate as they were both cars that impressed me. The reason why the Hyundai Genesis got the award is that you get yourself a luxury car that has excellent performance, fit and finish that is at worst equal to the cars it competes with, and a broad suite of technologies on board including a really cool way to open the trunk for a price that is thousands less than their German or Japanese competition. Now I almost gave this award to the Volvo V60 because it is an excellent alternative to an SUV that is really, really quick and handles well. Not to mention that it has a great feature set from a safety perspective. But Hyundai has managed to flip the script by coming up with a car that shows the world that luxury doesn’t have to be expensive seeing as it is exactly $62K CDN fully loaded. Quite simply, the Hyundai Genesis is a car that should make everyone else in this market rethink what a luxury car should be. As a result, it’s my pick for the best car over $40K.
