FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 14, 2015 – Hyundai’s 2015 Genesis continues to prove its luxury merit, making Autotrader’s list of Top 10 Best New and CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) Cars for Golf Lovers. The vehicle was praised for its striking design, advanced technologies, and range of powerful engines.

“The Genesis has the suave character of a car that costs twice as much,” said Brian Moody, site editor for Autotrader. “There’s more than enough room in the trunk for two sets of golf clubs, and the vehicle comes standard with a host of luxury and convenience features that golfers everywhere will enjoy.”

A feature that golfers are sure to love is Genesis’ Smart Trunk, which will automatically open when drivers stand within a few feet of the rear bumper with the key for more than three seconds. This feature is particularly useful for golfers approaching the vehicle with full hands and a fully-loaded club bag, with no leg or foot-waving required to engage. 

“The 2015 Genesis has a luxury appeal that is undeniable,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Any way you “slice” it, Genesis’ quiet ride, luxurious interior and superb driving dynamics make it a perfect vehicle for golfers.”

The 2015 Genesis is also the centerpiece for the 2015 Hyundai Invitational golf tournament series, returning in 2015 to connect golfers from around the country with the Hyundai brand. Fifty of the best charity golf tournaments around the country will add a Hyundai sponsorship that includes hole-in-one opportunities for a new Genesis, donations toward the tournament and numerous other prizes and giveaways. Two winners from each tournament will be invited to compete at the Hyundai Invitational National Final in Las Vegas at the Cascata Golf Club, October 21-23.
