This is the second Genesis I've owned. Both have been exceptional cars. My 2012 Genesis was RWD and that wasn't very practical for the winters in Spokane, WA. I loved that car because it was fun to drive and very comfortable and dependable. I like a car with good performance and the 2012 was a rocket even with having the smaller V-6 engine. The 2015 Genesis we purchased in September of 2016 is AWD. I have to say AWD makes the winter driving around here pretty easy even with it's high-performance all-season tires (they're really just 3 season tires) that it came with. We love this car...it's got tons of great features and is very quiet.
I've owned a lot of cars (5 BMWs, 2 Audis, a Mercedes, a Porsche, and a bunch of miscellaneous ones like classic Mustangs and old Mini rally cars). When I switched businesses from TV production (lots of car commercials) to real estate, I needed to go with something big enough for several people comfortably that wouldn't have crazy maintenance costs (bye, Mercedes), and wasn't so crazy expensive with the amount of driving I do (25k per year, so leasing was out, and the depreciation on a new BMW was out of the question with that much driving. Hence trying out the Genesis. Great value. Zippy. Comfy. The only mistake I made was no getting one with the technology package, since the rear is high enough that I'd like it to have a backup camera.
The 3.8 Genesis Coupe is often measured against V6 Mustangs and Camaros, but this is an inaccurate comparison. The Genesis is a significantly smaller car. In terms of size, weight and HP it's actually much closer to a different legendary car: the Toyota Supra A80. (Which cost significantly more when new - and good luck finding a Supra that hasn't been modified and hooned into oblivion!) The Genesis 3.8 is a true sports car with all the pros and cons that implies. It's just civilized enough to be used as a daily driver, although the suspension on the Track version is too firm to drive regularly on broken/potholed pavement. This is a really fun car, and there are tons of aftermarket tuning options available if you're that way inclined.
