Hyundai owns 40% of Kia, and Kia owns a lot of Hyundai’s suppliers. They share R&D divisions, but their business sides are separate. Genesis is fully owned by Hyundai. Engineering is done by a separate entity for both. Usually, Hyundai cars get new features a year before Kia cars. Hyundai and Kia are pretty intertwined.
