Yeah, I even tried talking to them. Don't particularly have an opinion on the guy, only that they are decidedly into Genesis as alternatives, and don't seem to see Lexus as a viable competitor in the luxury car landscape. I don't particularly agree with them in that regard, but I will say I do quite like Genesis' sedans regardless. Not enough for me to consider over an LS or ES, but they're pretty neat.
Here's the thing, for some reason India really love Hyundais but seem to dislike Toyotas, just look at the new car sales over in India, Hyundai ranks number 2, while Toyota is not even in top 5, they are like the opposite of almost everyone else, and then there's this extra 'special' example called Naveen, in any of those comparison tests from India that involves Toyota vs Hyundai, most of the comments that I've seen will basically be trashing on Toyota and fanboying over Hyundai.
I guess they prefer things that are shallow and very "surface level".
