First look at the 2015 Hyundai Genesis: @GirlInTheTrunk makes a cameo with MotoManTV

First look at the 2015 Hyundai Genesis: @GirlInTheTrunk makes a cameo with MotoManTV

I recently had the chance to test drive the 2015 Hyundai Genesis, and the short version of the review is: I loved it. In fact, I'm hard pressed to find something I didn't like on this new premium-level Hyundai.

In this video, MotoManTV has long chat with Matthew Becker, chief engineer of test and development at Lotus Cars. While this may seem like a non sequitur, it all makes sense when you realize that Lotus helped fine tune the suspension and chassis in the all-new Genesis.

I make a cameo appearance at about 6.20 as I discuss my favorite feature on the new Genesis: the Smart Trunk. You'll see me again near the end of the video, so be sure to watch the full thing!

  • Though I wonder about the design. From going from an obvious MB knockoff, the gaping maw grill sort of is like Audi, but not really. Given the winged logo, they were ripping off Bentley, but not effectively. So, I don't see why they were giving the designers "rock star" accolades.

    I was going to say that at least the rear was not hiked liked in the pictures of the 2015 Camry, but from the interior shots, it is still obvious that the driver can't see what's within 20 feet behind the car.

    Your segment didn't explain what keeps the trunk from opening when anyone walks near it, like thieves from diamond merchants.

  • You need to have the key in your pocket for the trunk to open

  • In reply to slalemand:

    And does it open every time you rub against it in your tight garage? At least on an Escape, you have to put your foot under the bumper.

  • In reply to jack:

    if you stand back there longer than 3 to 5 seconds, yes it will open. but you can always turn it off. and like slalemand said, the key does have to be in your pocket. so, if you're just working in your garage without the key, nothing happens.
