Hyundai expects the 2009 Genesis Sedan to fly off the showroom floor. However, few were probably amused when a pair of the brand-new Korean sedans took a leap from a transporter. We don't know many details other than the incident occurred somewhere in South Korea. Of course, we don't consider this incident extremely newsworthy, but as a blog we do find these automotive-related human errors with expensive aftermaths rather fascinating. Keep 'em coming.

      That beige one looks beautiful on its side.

      I'm sure this is not the "beginning" intended for these cars. Hope no one got hurt.

      Looks like it'd make a great advertising campaign. Sorta viral, lol.

      At least those two will be staying in Korea where they belong.

        I am sick and tired of your trolling and your thinly-veiled racist comments on every single Hyundai-related article.

      Were any 0-60 times recorded? :p

      Seriously, hopefully nobody was hurt.

      Not a bad looking car. The details are clean and the basic shape is nice. I'm not a sedan person, but I can appreciate the aesthetic.

      Pity they're, ah, scratch and dent.

      Between this and the wrecked GT-R in Malaysia Ebay is going to be a "good as new" parts bonanza.

      How is it that so many 'smart' people here can dismiss this offering and continue to be so enamored and brainwashed with the shallowness of brand marketing by the 'established luxury brand'.
      So many have become so carnal and pawns of the billions spent to lure them.
      You can find me in my skeptic tank.

      those genesi have klingon forehead grills (w/ pseudo-bentley badge above them) ... what happened to the vertical black bar for the korean market version? i wanted that here, but instead they got our ugly version there ...

      Since 'genesis' is a Greek word, I doubt its plural is 'genesi'.
        • 6 Years Ago
        i love the fact that there are tools like me on autoblog..
        thanks dude!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Correct. The proper plural is 'geneses' (or 'geneseis' if you want to be closer to the original Greek).

        @Matt: Re: The plural of 'Lexus'
        FWIW, the plural of 'nexus' (in English, anyway) is 'nexus' or 'nexuses'.

      i'm sure what happened was this:
      driver was enjoying his coffee and bagel while finding his favorite station on his satt radio, when his coffee spilled onto his smart device. that caused a loud tone in his BT ear. hence not allowing him to notice the moped rider delivering 12 propane tanks (who was splitting lanes at the time), and had to swerve dangeroulsy.
      good thing they were just hyundais, a total loss of $10.

      actually i think the genesis is pretty nice looking, like the other hyundais it would appear to be parts of several other popular cars in it's size class. i have been very impressed with hyundai's attempts at recreating themselves as a low-cost premium brand. with the exception of the sub-compacts, i would consider buying a hyundai whereas 10 years ago i would have kicked myself in the crotchal area first.
