Who makes Genesis cars?
First debuted in 2008, Genesis is a luxury vehicle division of Hyundai and its headquarters is in Seoul, South Korea. In 2015, the decision was made to make Genesis a stand-alone brand. The aim has been to produce prestigious cars to rival the likes of Land Rover and BMW cars. Genesis also aim to provide a first-class experience supported by the Genesis Personal Assistants.

Genesis Car Logo
The latest Genesis car logo can be identified by its two wings and featuring the word “Genesis.” in the centre. We think the unobtrusive colour scheme makes the logo look stylish and elegant. This refined Genesis logo was introduced in 2020 to ensure it was easy to distinguish from the Hyundai logo. The wing symbol is also used by other prestigious brands such as Bentley and Aston Martin. This represents a combination of power and class amongst these car manufacturers, including Genesis.
