The new 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan gets closer and closer to a Star Trek shuttlecraft with its new next-generation Blue Link system featuring destination search powered by Google™, a Genesis Intelligent Assistant app and a Google Glass app. The Enterprise’s chief engineer, Mr. Scott, will defiantly want to be driving a Genesis after this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI.
