How much car insurance do I need for a Hyundai Genesis?

How much auto insurance you need will depend on your unique needs and whether or not you are leasing or purchasing the vehicle. Leasing a vehicle always costs more as the car leasing company requires much more coverage than state minimum requirements in order to execute the lease.

Since the Genesis is a late model car however you should always consider GAP insurance until your car loan balance is relatively close to the book value of the vehicle. GAP insurance is very important for any new cars that are financed – especially those with minimal down payments.

Overall the Genesis has certainly set a new standard for the Hyundai corporation. The Genesis is one vehicle anyone who wants a combination of luxury and value should consider.
