A range of these models launch in the UK next month apparently. Look absolutely superb and showcase what Korea can do with a little bit of bought in skill from Europe.

It looks to me like this will hugely enhance the pedigree and brand which Kia and Hyundai have built up worldwide and can't wait to see them on UK roads.

From the literature I have read they are not using dealer networks to get to market and appear to be mimicking the Tesla route to consumers via posh city centre based locations. Just a pity they couldn't be rolled out through the Kia dealer network.

Interesting to hear from anyone who knows more about these cars.

Can't half see the Bentley/Aston Martin influence!

Hope they have more success in UK than Nissan did with Infiniti. Winning over some of the badge snobs would be a great start.
Infiniti in the UK were a joke. They had their worst car models imported to the UK and they priced themselves completely out of the market. They were too close to the Nissans donor cars to really attract the premium buyer. I think Genesis will be far more savvy than Infiniti and if their reputation in the US is anything to go by they should hopefully shake up the market. I like the fact that they are going to have the 5 year warranty and that servicing will be included.
