    For now, Hyundai is only selling the short wheel base. The long wheel base will be available in the second generation - which will be here sooner than you think considering it's almost ready to launch in South Korea...

    Nobody really knows for sure. They have an equally compelling strategy going with "Genesis" or staying with "Hyundai". At least in the USA. They're moving forward with the "Genesis" brand in at least one or two other countries, however...

    Re: Alas, I won't be buying an XTS...

    As long as you can swap the logos and you can get better service, I don't really care about the separate brand. I'd rather keep the cars a better value, personally. The Hyundai dealer here in Bentonville is pretty nice, and anyway, I'd prefer to spend as little time in the dealer as possible. Loaner/shuttle and fast in and out is the best kind of dealership...

    Remember when Cadillac & Lincoln were in the same league as Bentley and Rolls? What was that, before the 60's. Some idiots decided volume was more important. Stupid...

    I don't like the idea of high volume either. I don't think Cadillac should be the luxury automobile for the common man. Value luxury. And I understand that if it were a brand like Bentley or Rolls - I couldn't afford one. At the rate Buick is growing, however, it could take the place of Cadillac as it stands - allowing Cadillac to really move up the ladder. I'd rather Cadillac be a brand that I cannot afford.
