2015 Genesis Snags 2014 Top Family Choice Award

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis

Hyundai today announced that the all-new 2015 Genesis was given the 2014 Top Family Choice Award, courtesy of the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA). The award was presented during the second-annual Family Choice Challenge at the Lake Lanier Island Resort in Georgia. The 2014 Top Family Choice Award was the most important honor doled out at the event.

“A sport sedan like the 2015 Hyundai Genesis is attractive to drivers who want a family car but don’t want to sacrifice on style and performance,” said Nick Palermo, GAAMA president. “The Genesis earned its place as 2014 Top Family Choice by exceeding expectations. Although the previous-generation Genesis sedan is an impressive car, this new model again raises the bar for both Hyundai and its competitors. Families looking for accessible luxury should add the 2015 Genesis to their short lists.”

The 2015 Genesis boasts top safety and driving assist features in a spacious interior and at a cost that younger drivers can afford (starting at $38,000). Available advanced safety features include Blind-Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Smart Cruise Control. The rear-drive platform benefits from high-strength steel that holds 16 percent stiffer torsional rigidity than the outgoing model, as well 40 percent stiffer bending rigidity.

“It’s an honor to receive the award for Top Family Choice for the 2015 Genesis,” commented Mike O’Brien, vice president, Corporate and Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “GAAMA is full of exceptional automotive media and this accolade proves that the all-new Genesis has what it takes to succeed in a very competitive market.”

The Genesis was also just named the Car of Texas by the Texas Auto Writers Association.
