Seems like a pretty decent car, although I think I’d rather be a passenger in this sort of car rather than the driver. I’ve only been a passenger in the previous K9 (which my uncle has in Seoul) but it was comfortable and nice. Too bad depreciation is a bitch, and the first gen ones are nearly impossible to find used since nobody bought them. There is currently one 2015 K9 V8 for $30k in the whole province with a bit over 100,000 km on it. There are four for sale in Canada (counting the one in Ontario) and the rest are out west.
I think these K9s along with the Genesis will be decent used deals if you can find them. Not sure what reliability is on these kinds of cars but with a 5-year warranty you could pick one up cheap and still have some warranty left.
