Power Move: Genesis Tops 2018 J.D. Power Study

What a difference a year makes. The 2018 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study has been released, and one thing is clear — Hyundai is on a tear. Last year, the Korean automaker was eighth on the list, but this year, its Genesis luxury line shot to the top, knocking off venerable regulars like Lexus and Porsche. What’s even bigger news is that Hyundai basically owns the top three spots, as KIA (which it owns 30 percent of) is second, and Hyundai itself is third.

New-School Luxury: 2018 Genesis G90 Test Drive Review

Thirty years ago, Toyota and Nissan both followed Honda’s lead by creating a separate luxury division thus resulting in Lexus, Infiniti and Acura, respectively.

2018 Genesis G80 Sport Test Drive Review
