2017 Genesis G80

Basically a Hyundai Genesis with small revisions.
Which, I guess, is fine. Since it will be much more popular than the big G90 sedan, it will help the new brand.
The real news will be when they launch an all new SUV next year.
Since it will sell much more than any of their sedans. That model will actually put the brand on the map.
For now, they just have a rebadged mid sized sedan and the big giant luxury boat (almost) no one will actually buy.

Engines on the G80 are the regular 3.8 Liter V6 with 315HP  or a 3.3 Liter V6 turbo with 365HP.
The Turbo is available with a new Sport version of the sedan.

I'm wondering if they'll bring the sport version to NA. I like how it looks!

LOL. The made the ugly plastic sensor behind the grille even bigger. Does Hyundai know what they are doing anymore? And the G80/G90 sound like Infiniti models and don't promote luxury. G800 and G900 would be better. They were on such a roll for the last few years and now since John K left they have come apart at the seams.
