"That's the new Hyundai, right"

"Yeah, it is."

"How do you like it?"

"I like it a lot."

"Can I have a look?"

And so it went all weekend long: at the super market, at the car wash, and in my own driveway. In retrospect, I think I get this line of questioning more often in this car than any other car in our fleet. Sure, we get thumbs-up when we're driving the Nissan GT-R and spontaneous street racing challenges when we drive the Evo(s), but nothing, past or present seems to elicit questions and genuine interest like our 2009 Hyundai Genesis does?

Does anybody ask you about your car? I doubt it.

Oh, and hit the jump to see what an empty freeway at 5:00a.m. can do for "reported" fuel economy.

Pretty impressive, eh?
