It doesn’t get much better than the Genesis G90, a powerful and BLANK full size sedan that leaves no stone left unturned. Powered by a 3.3L DOHC 24-valve V6 Twin Turbo engine with Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT), the Genesis G90 uses elite mechanics along side luxury to create the most comfortable ride possible. Enjoy Nappa leather seating surfaces, a 12.3 inch HD navigation system, a Lexicon 17-speaker surround-sound system with Quantum Logic Surround &Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology, and much more all standard on the 2017 Genesis G90.

Starting at an MSRP of $41,400 for the rear-wheel-drive model, the Genesis G80 uses a 3.8L DOHC 24-valve V6 engine with Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) paired with an 8-speed Electronic and SHIFTRONIC® Manual Shift that has different modes such as Eco, Normal, Sport& Snow. While the new Genesis G80 doesn’t come standard with the same infotainment system at the G90, it still gets an 8-inch touchscreen navigation system with Bluetooth technology and SiriusXM radio, plus a HomeLink Integrated Transceiver. Five years after its first appearance , the Hyundai Genesis Coupe has its days numbered. The Korean brand has decided to abandon in 2016 the project that it undertook with such enthusiasm in its day but that has not achieved much less meet the expectations of the manufacturer. They wanted to repeat the success of the first Hyundai Coupé but they did not even reach the sole of the shoes. And it’s a real shame, because it was one of the most interesting affordable sports cars and rear-wheel drive cars, especially for those who love modifications. In the end, the Genesis Coupé has been involved in the crossfire of the Toyota GT86, Subaru BRZ and Mazda MX5 and has not managed to take advantage.

The coupé that phagocized America

Was Hyundai too ambitious to get into the war of the pony car?

Even in America, where Hyundai thought to reap better results, it succumbed to the push of the pony car . Three years after its launch, in 2014 the Genesis Coupé abandoned the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, was left with only 3.8 V6 and reduced its equipment to keep the most likely contained price (currently on sale for $ 26,950) ). That decision turned out to be inappropriate from minute one since, just before communicating the abandonment of 2.0, that engine accounted for half of the sales of the model . They tried to position it higher, but the shot came back. In Europe the bet was launched clearly without too much hope, Spain reached only 120 units the year of its launch and has been out of its catalog for best waterproof car cover.

In general terms and comparing it with the rest of the competition it might not be a particularly light car, neither fast nor powerful (more than 300 CV in the V6, eye), but in exchange it was a rear, manual (automatic option), beautiful, who defended himself in movement and with a tight price. On the table he had ballots to sell well, and in the end he ended up staying on wet paper . From South Korea they tried to eat the toast that the Camaro, Mustang and, to a lesser extent, Charger were eating in the country of stars and stripes, but being a brand so young and, in addition, Asian I suppose that in the end it ended up happening bill. Maybe they put all the eggs in the same American basket, and in the end their intentions of success ended up sinking a model that painted very appetizing.

If you were Hyundai, would you bet on a new more sophisticated and expensive coupe or would you return to the path of the cheap sports car Luckily for everyone, Christine Henley (Hyundai USA) has stated that they are already working on a future replacement for the Genesis Coupé under the premium banner, Genesis, which would complement its range in the sport branch with a more refined product. In addition, there are already rumors that point to the new model could come to equip a V8 engine.

he Hyundai Genesis G80 brings luxury into the everyday world. With two engine options, a pair of drivetrain options and plenty of features, the Genesis G80 offers the power, performance and amenities people expect in a high-end luxury automobile. With a low starting MSRP and available financing, Hyundai makes this luxury affordable for the average person. Oh, and Hyundai also continues to provide a luxury level of service after purchase.

Classic Muscle or Modern Power

The Hyundai Genesis G80 comes with a pair of engine and drivetrain options that let drivers customize their luxury driving experience. For a classic muscle car-like experience go with the available 5.0-liter V8 and its rear-wheel drive drivetrain. The engine produces 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, which will bring the G80 up to 60 miles per hour in just 5.3 seconds and more than hold its own when revving beforehand. The G80 gets a combined 18 miles per gallon with this configuration, which is impressive when there’s V8 power involved. For a more modern approach to power, stick with the 3.8-liter V6 and get the available all-wheel drive. This engine still produces a respectable 311 horsepower and 293 pound-feet of torque, and it’ll reach 60 miles per hour in 6.6 seconds. The advanced dual-mode HTRAC all-wheel drive drops the combined fuel economy from 22 miles per gallon to 19 mpg, but it adds superb handling in slippery conditions.

Full of Standard Features

Being in the luxury space, the Hyundai Genesis G80 comes with a long list of features. Some of the standard features that were included on the 2017 model and will also be on 2018 editions include a(n):

8-inch touchscreen

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

lane-departure warning system

blind-spot monitoring system

power-adjustable steering wheel

rearview camera

There are many others, and drivers who want even more features can upgrade to the Premium and Ultimate packages.

Affordable Prices for Average Drivers

Thanks to the Hyundai Genesis G80’s affordable price, you don’t have to be part of the 1 percent to afford a luxury vehicle. 2018 Genesis G80s’ MSRPs start at $42,725, which is extremely low for a luxury vehicle. When incentives and financing and lease options are considered, the G80 becomes a luxury sedan that’s truly affordable. Drivers who want an even better bargain on a luxury sedan can look for a certified pre-owned Genesis G80. Certified pre-owned models come with excellent warranties, are reliable and still have all the features they originally were equipped with.

Continued Luxury-Level Service

In a move that’s redefining what it means to own a luxury vehicle, Hyundai continues to treat new Genesis G80 buyers as VIP owners long after their initial purchase. The purchase of any new Genesis extends drivers the Genesis Experience for 3 years of 36,000 miles. Several services are included in this experience, but the one that stands out is the Genesis Service Valet. Whenever a new G80 needs service, a valet will come to pick up the G80 and drop off a loaner car. They’ll bring the G80 back after it’s been serviced. There’s never a need to actually go to the dealership for service.
