News flash from the double-take department: That great-looking mid-size sedan that just cruised by you was, indeed, a Hyundai Genesis. Redesigned for 2015, this second-generation Genesis looks, feels and drives like a luxury car should: distinctive, roomy, comfortable, quiet, powerful and loaded with safety and infotainment features. Yet it's priced thousands less than similarly equipped competitors.  The sophisticated exterior design owes much to the brand's design language, called “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0,” which might not exactly roll off the tongue but sure catches the eye. The giant front grille and high-mounted headlamps are well proportioned, giving the Genesis a handsome face.

Sales through May are up 81 percent, to 99,930, enough to put it ahead of Mazda for the first time in the two brands' U.S. history. Mazda is up a scant 1.9 percent to 99,425.
