Hyundai's luxury brand Genesis' G90 was named Car of the Year by U.S. auto magazine MotorTrend last Friday.
The magazine evaluated 20 different vehicles based on six criteria -- value, safety, efficiency, advancement of design, engineering excellence and performance of intended function.
The G90 beat out seven finalists, including Acura's Integra, BMW's i4, Chevrolet's Corvette Z06 and Honda's Civic Type R. Hyundai's Electrified G80 also made it to the final list.
The magazine said, "It no longer strives to be a fast-follower, 'reverse-engineering' fads and features originated by its competitors; instead, it's a leader in this heady space."
"Genesis vehicles can now sell on their own legitimate merits, not simply as bargain alternatives to the establishment benchmarks. No surprise, this ranked the G90 strongly against our Of The Year criteria," it added.
