Why did Hyundai split from Genesis?​​​​​​

The Genesis and Hyundai relationship can be a little confusing for those unfamiliar with the history of the two brands. Genesis Motors is the luxury vehicle division under Hyundai Motor Group. The Genesis brand was announced officially as a standalone marque in November of 2015.

Hyundai wanted to separate the more luxury-geared Genesis models from the high-end and quality Hyundai models geared more towards individuals and families. In 2018 it was decided that for Genesis to stay exclusive, they would have temporary or shared facilities with about 100 retailers. The plan for the next three years is to build standalone facilities for Genesis to enhance the overall buying and ownership experience.

Here is a look at some Genesis models that may catch your eye!

2019 Genesis G70

The luxurious and sophisticated  2019 Genesis G70 is a dream on wheels. It received the 2019 North American Car of the Year award by MotorTrend and for good reason! It comes with the standard 2.0L turbocharged GDI 4-cylinder engine with a horsepower of 252. It goes from 0-60 in an impressive 4.5 seconds. It is structured with comfort in mind, emphasized by the available Nappa leather seats and the 8-inch touchscreen that has a floating design.   The Genesis G70 also has top safety features. There are two essential standards that must be met to receive the 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award. The first standard is how well protected the vehicle occupants are in an event of a crash. The second standard is how the vehicle’s technology works to prevent a crash or lessen the impact. Spoiler Alert: the 2021 Genesis G70 surpassed the testing results and received the award!

2019 Genesis G80 Sport

The sporty and athletically designed in every aspect  2019 Genesis G80 Sport is an amazing vehicle. Get fast and furious with the standard 3.3L twin-turbo engine with a responsive 365 horsepower. It also has premium leather sports seats and a Lexicon Premium Audio System with Quantum. The G80 Sport also has an incredible 17-speaker surround sound set…does it get any better?
Also, use your standard 9.2-inch touchscreen display to connect with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Have all your favorite apps, playlists and navigational programs all at your fingertips.
Feel confident and let the inner sportscar driver come out while driving the Genesis G80 Sport.
