2017 Hyundai Genesis G80 Exterior Design

The 2017 Genesis G80 should look familiar. It’s been on sale as the Hyundai Genesis since the 2015 model year, after all. Now that Hyundai is turning Genesis into its own brand, this luxury sedan is getting a new identity. That rebranding doesn’t bring many substantial changes, which is apparent upon seeing the car. The G80 looks largely the same as it did when it was still a Hyundai, apart from minor details and new badging. The look is still fairly handsome, and a full restyling probably wasn’t necessary. The G80 retains the powertrain options offered in the Hyundai era. A 3.8-liter V6 produces 311 horsepower and 293 pound-feet of torque, while a 5.0-liter V8 makes 420 hp and 383 lb-ft. Both engines are matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission, with standard rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is also available on V6 models. Genesis brags that the chassis was tuned at the Nürburgring, but the G80 still places emphasis on luxury over sportiness
