Hyundai Genesis Wins 2013 Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Award 
TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. today announced that 
the Genesis premium sedan has earned the 2013 Canadian Black Book Award for 
Best Retained Value in the "Full-size Car" category. The Canadian Black Book 
Retained Value Awards recognize the vehicles that maintain the highest 
percentage of their original Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) 
after four years on-sale. Canadian Black Book is the Canadian automotive 
industry's leading source for used vehicle valuation. 
"When the Genesis sedan was launched to critical acclaim in 2008, our 
intention was to redefine customers' perception of the Hyundai brand," said 
Steve Kelleher, President and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. "By creating a 
world-class luxury sedan capable of standing toe-to-toe with established 
premium models, we shocked the industry. Our success is further confirmed 
today with the announcement that Genesis holds it value better than any other 
model in the Canadian full-size car segment." 
"It is exciting to see the Hyundai Genesis win our Full-size Car award, 
representing the first Korean-manufactured vehicle ever to win a Canadian 
Black Book Retained Value Award," added Josh Bailey, Vice-President, Research 
and Editorial, Canadian Black Book. 
Shortly after its introduction, the Genesis was named Canadian Car of the Year 
and North American Car of the Year for 2009. The Genesis' advanced safety 
technologies were also recognized with five-star crash safety ratings from the 
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Top Safety Picks 
from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). 
Propelled by powerful V6 or V8 engines, the Genesis is built on Hyundai's 
proprietary rear-wheel drive architecture. Incorporated are all the premium 
technologies and amenities buyers expect in a luxury sedan. Available features 
include heated front and rear seats, a ventilated driver's seat, a heated 
steering wheel, proximity keyless entry with push-button ignition, a 
power-operated rear sunshade, an 8-inch touch-screen navigation system, and a 
608 watt, 17-speaker Lexicon(®) audio system with 7.1 discrete surround 
sound, among many others. Genesis is also equipped with advanced convenience 
features such as adaptive auto-cornering HID headlights, adaptive cruise 
control, and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS).
