About Genesis

In 2008, Hyundai released the Genesis—a full-sized luxury sedan available with all-wheel drive. Immediately, the Hyundai Genesis became a popular vehicle; drivers enjoyed its powerful base 3.8L V6 engine at 290 hp and its generous standard features, including automatic dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, and heated front seats (2009 model year).

In 2017, Genesis became its own brand, and the vehicle itself was renamed the G80. Genesis continues to make the G80 luxury sedan, with its 2018 model year boasting such features as a standard 3.8L V6 engine at 311 hp, keyless entry/ignition, smartphone integration, and an eight-inch touchscreen interface. And it looks like the Genesis brand won't stop at luxury sedans; it has been announced that they'll be branching off into the luxury SUV category in 2020 and beyond.
