We finally know what Hyundai is planning for the Genesis brand.
Hyundai finally followed in the footsteps of Lexus, Infiniti, and Acura, and launched a luxury brand of cars. Genesis will be Hyundai's new luxury brand, and several models are in the pipeline. The problem is, we don't think anyone even knows that Hyundai has made this change yet. Even during the Superbowl, Hyundai advertised the Genesis, which will no longer be the name of that model in this new lineup. Thanks to The Korean Car Blog, we finally have a look at what models will grace the Genesis lineup. Maybe this will stop all of the confusion.
The only Genesis model that has currently been unveiled is the G90. This large luxury sedan is essentially an Equus, with a bit of a refresh. The G80 will be a mid-size sedan that will fill the place of the old Genesis sedan. We also knew that a small G70 model would do battle with the BMW 3 Series. Thanks to a leaked product roadmap from Korean Car Blog, we know that these two sedans will be unveiled in 2017, with two SUVs to follow by 2020. We also got a nice surprise, with a luxury sports car on the way for 2020. You won't be able to buy the Genesis Coupe after 2016, so you'll have to wait four years to buy a Korean sports car. Hopefully it will be worth the wait.
