Koreans like the Chinese is still about FACE. Mercedes still more satki than Genesis. And the bigger the car and more grand and expensive, the more they want it. Ang mo brand vs local brand. Ang mo always wins.
I took a hard look at genesis g80 2 3yrs back when launched here.
Price tag of 200k plus.
Interior is posh. Poshier than e class definately w212 and even the w213 now. Honest review. No bias view from me.
Specs wise its top. Size is s class or 7 series.
Bad sales points.
1. 3.3 or 3.8 engine then. Cant rem exactly liao.
2. Bad fc.
3. No buyers. I dun tink its gonna be easy to maintain or service one this way.
4. Subconsicously the brand image plays in.
Its priced like a e class. It has greater specs. Hp. Torque etc. But wats working against them is still image.
Fast foward today. Mercedes is now selling in korea as no.3 in the world. Beating sales in germany. Pricing is fantastic in korea for mercedes. U see more mercedes than genesis in korea itself.
