Genesis News: Genesis Introduces Spectrum "All-Inclusive" leasing

Recommended Posts

Genesis has introduced Spectrum all-inclusive leasing.  While not a subscription service like Volvo's Care or Book by Cadillac , Spectrum does include insurance and all maintenance for 3 years.   Subscription leasing services main draw is the ability of the leasee to switch vehicles at some point during the lease.

Genesis Spectrum covers the following:

  • 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance
  • 3 years/36,000 miles complimentary Service Valet
  • 3 years of complimentary Genesis Connected Services, including Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Destination Search powered by Voice and Remote Start with climate control
  • 3 years of complimentary SiriusXM® Travel Link (Data Services)
  • 3 years of complimentary Annual Multimedia and Navigation Updates
  • Up to $1,525 allowance for excess wear and use, excess mileage, and disposition fee for returning Genesis Finance customers

Genesis is striking a balance between the car subscription services, which have questionable financial viability, and traditional basic leasing.  Genesis Spectrum will be available first in Florida and then roll out to select markets nationwide.

This makes far more sense for people who do not want to bother with getting insurance. Just lease from the OEM auto company with all service and insurance included. To me this has far more value than the subscription services.

One question: why only three years?  Should they not have a five-year option too?

It makes it easier to deduct on taxes as well.

I think 3 years is the most popular lease option. There isn't a lot of 5-year leasing out there.

This makes sense.  I could see this becoming popular... I know part of the reason my parents tried their first lease 3 years ago is because I enticed them with the idea of owning one car, and always having one car completely new, covered bumper-to-bumper, and the only thing they really have to do is get it inspected and have oil changes.

Now Genesis will do all of that with Concierge pickup too.

I honestly wish I had that service because the dealer, even with an appointment, is horribly slow. I end up sitting there for 2-3 hours for an oil change.  And I tried to get it done at Pep Boys and they don't carry the "exotic" and it has to be preordered, which I wish they would tell you when you make the appointment.

It's a nice thing I have with my Buick.

I wonder what sort of insurance coverage it will provide.  Is this state minimum coverage?  Or will it be a no deductible, million dollar liability type of policy?

I find w/ my dealer it's a couple hours minimum with an appointment.  I usually take my laptop and sit in the lounge and work.   Sitting in a doctor's office waiting room working now.

From the Press Release, I know it doesn't say much.

The auto insurance policy from Metlife Auto and Home includes competitive coverage with $500 deductible adding to the customers’ confidence that their Genesis vehicles are fully protected.

I don't see that anywhere in the press release. I'll update the article if I'm wrong... but... not seeing it.

You're right, my bad.  I read that originally so fast, the Genesis program is not a subscription service.

And I doubt anyone who wants a G70 would want to stoop to either of the other two Genesi.

      Most Luxury dealerships offer a loaner car when a customer brings their vehicle in for service.  But Audi is offering something different for new owners of 2019 or newer Audi vehicles. 
      Audi owns the rental car company Silvercar, a firm that exclusively offers silver Audis as their rental fleet. The new program called "Always Audi" allows purchasers of a new Audi seven days rental at no additional cost.   Customers can choose from the Audi A4, A5 Cabriolet, Q5, or Q7 from one of their 20 locations around the US.  All Audis at Silvercar come with GPS, Wifi, and SiriusXM at no additional cost. 
      Of course, there are a few catches.  The rental days must be used within the first 3 years of ownership, and drivers are still responsible for fuel, airport fees, taxes, tolls, optional insurance, and other options. 
      Now Audi owners can take "their" Audi along on vacation with them.

      Genesis unveiled something very different at the New York International Auto Show this evening.  It's their take on an electrified luxury city car.
      The jellybean like shape is supposed to evoke classic proportions while having a modern minimalistic appearance. It is a 2-door, 2 passenger car that has access to the rear storage area via a pair of scissor doors. 
      Inside is similarly minimalistic and oblong. The dashboard is integrated directly into the steering wheel surrounded by 6 large control buttons. For those of you who miss having a bench seat, Genesis brings you hope. 
      The high density battery is capable of a 200-mile range and 350-kWh fast charging. 
      As this is a concept, don't expect it to go into production anytime soon, but Genesis is toying with electrification just like all the other brands and will likely be bringing an electric vehicle out soon.
