Genesis, a luxury car division of Hyundai that was created in back 2015 as Hyundai’s upscale spinoff, is in talks to launch it’s new 2021 Genesis G80. With its gigantic pentagonal grille, slant roofline, and double headlights, the Sedan is a rolling beauty. The sedan design is inspired by the company’s new GV80 SUV, without any high-end price tag for the luxury vehicles. The genesis’ entry is the company’s attempt to lead it in a new era and outstrip its luxury brands rivals like BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The G80 will lie in a slot in between the smaller G70 and the larger G90 sedans.
The 2021 G80 is the third generation of the series and shares the same platform and powertrains as GV80 SUV. The Sedan is equipped with the massive front grille, unique exterior lightning, and luxury lined cabin. The grille has been replaced with crest grille, Kammback rear, and quad lightning at both ends have been onboarded for the styling of the mid-size Sedan. The model will retain the long hood, cab back design but will look wider than its predecessor. Its suspension system relies on a forward-facing camera that scans the road and adjusts the suspension stiffness to suit.
