Amid the current year’s 2016 Detroit Auto Show, Hyundai caused a significant mix with their new 2017 Genesis G90 sedan whose weapons are indicated different S-Class competitors. Notwithstanding, the sedan was by all account not the only model carrying the new Genesis extravagance badge. The Korean automakers new extravagance brand badges were also carried by a moderate size sedan named the 2017 Genesis G80. The sedan is actually a rebadged Hyundai Genesis sedan. In fact, there are hardly any noticeable changes such that many individuals won’t realize that it’s not the Genesis sedan they are utilized to. Just its new Genesis wing seal and “G80” badges on its rear end let them know apart.
The mid-size G80 and the full-scrutinize G90 sedans make the initial two models of six new models Hyundai plans to release by 2020. Others coming up later include a G60 roadster and a G70 sedan which are also roused by the Vision G idea. The other two models will be SUVs which are yet to be named.
2017 Genesis G80 Design
With the exception of gentle touches, the exterior looks of 2017 Genesis G80 and the Hyundai Genesis sedan it is replacing are identical. The slight changes include a redesign of the guards and a flashy, more snappy and forcing grille on the front fascia. There are also new air intakes to cool its turbocharged engine. At the back, the vehicle features a slanting and aerodynamic completion of the trunk line. It helps to remember the Toyota Avalon or the Audi A7. That’s just about all the exterior differences of the G80 and its antecedent.
In spite of the fact that we didn’t get the actual interior dimensions, the new cabin looks larger. This will give its occupants more leg space. The sedan will accommodate five passengers. In front, the cabin features a more in vogue dashboard with matte gleam and wooden trim completions.
The cabin is made of delicate touch materials which are crafted with great attention to detail. Its instinctive and centrally located parchment haggle catches copy those on the Audi’s MMI framework. The catches help the driver switch through the navigation framework, telephone, and different capacities.
The base model is adequately loaded with features, for example, heated front seats with a 12-way control adjustable driver’s seat, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, tilt and extendable directing wheel, rain detecting wipers, paddle shifters, sans hands trunk opener and Blue Link infotainment framework to name just yet a couple.
More features are offered on optional basis. The vehicle also accompanies an array of safety types of gear, for example, supported airbags and a package of driving aids.
The base engine of the 2017 Genesis G80 will be a carryover of the modern base engine of the Genesis. This is further confirm by the ‘3.8″ badge on the G80’s trunk-top. This 3.8 L, the V-6 engine is capable of delivering 333 hp.
According to sound sources, the automaker will replace the current normally aspirated 5.0 L V-8 engine offered optionally on the Genesis sedan with a twin-turbocharged 3.3 L unit. The new drive-train is required to deliver around 480 hp. This engine will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission framework. The engine is at present being engineered by the automaker’s N performance division.
Hyundai guaranteed to reveal more insight into the Genesis G80 sedan engine and different specs at the New York Auto Show in March.
Price and Release Date
The model is required to hit the showrooms later in the late spring of 2016. As at the cost, Hyundai is yet to make an official announcement. We anticipate that the automaker will make this announcement amid the New York Auto Show in March yet anticipate that the car will have a starting price of around $ 38,000 MSRP.
Having sold more than 100,000 units of the active Genesis sedan in just a year and a half after its launch in 2014, the automaker expects the approaching G80 sedan to improve.
