The Genesis Sedan was named “Best Deal for the Boss” in the Cars.com annual Best Lifestyle Vehicle Awards.

This award recognizes the Hyundai Genesis as the vehicle best suited to meet the lifestyle needs of “the boss” including luxury features, driving refinement, styling and prestige all in an affordable package.

“It’s a rear-wheel-drive full-size sedan that offers a luxurious, spacious cabin and V-6 and V-8 drivetrains that are notable for their efficiency and performance,” said Cars.com editors. “The Genesis comes standard with eight airbags and a stability system to help protect occupants, and it’s available with convenience features like a 17-speaker audio system. On the whole, the Genesis does a remarkable job at delivering the experience of a high-end luxury sedan at a much lower price.”

The Cars.com Lifestyle Awards recognize new vehicles that best suit the lifestyles of today’s car shoppers, and acknowledge the best cars across a number of categories that car shoppers can identify with based on their personal vehicle needs.

The North American Car of the Year-winning Genesis is built on Hyundai’s performance-driven rear-wheel drive architecture. Genesis offers an array of luxury convenience features including Smart Cruise Control, touch-screen navigation, electronic parking brake with automatic vehicle hold, Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFLS), Lexicon® audio systems and electronic active head restraints.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition from Cars.com as it reinforces the Genesis ability to compete with the world’s best luxury sedans,” said Derek Joyce, Genesis product manager. “Genesis is the ideal model for car buyers looking for the power, comfort and sophisticated design of a luxury brand, without the expensive price tag.” [via]
