2017 Genesis G80: Detroit Unveiling Marks The End Of Hyundai Genesis!

By  | 

Hyundai’s luxury arm, Genesis, has finally unveiled the highly anticipated luxury sedan, the G80. Slotted below the G90, the vehicle will look to rival the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the BMW 3-Series and also the Audi A3 when released.

The thing is that the G80 is the direct successor for the Hyundai Genesis. Since Genesis has already unveiled the production-ready G80, it is safe to say that the Hyundai Genesis is officially dead and gone.

The G80 will be produced as a 2017 model year car and it will be smaller than the G90. The vehicle will also be offered with a variety of engine options, starting with a 2L 4-cylinder unit. The question now is that will the G80 be able to compete with the German luxuries or will it take it slow and challenge the Japanese premium cars from Acura, Infiniti and Lexus?
