When Toyota needed a luxury brand, it created Lexus.

When Honda and Nissan went for the premium segment, Acura and Infiniti showed up. Now, Hyundai is doing the same with the Genesis brand. That's why nobody should have been surprised by the 2020 Genesis G80.

It is a completely new model, on a new platform. From a distance, it might be mistaken with an Infiniti M model, but on a closer look, the pentagonal grille and quad-headlights will tell a different story. Maybe it is not that original from the design point of view, but the same words were said about Lexus when it started.

The side dropping line might remember someone from the lines of a second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLS. That said, as an original design cue, the double horizontal lines from the headlights and taillights are making a statement. The roofline is kind of like the one on the Kia Stinger, which is fine since it is another vehicle from the Hyundai-Kia group.

The interior is very luxurious, with a big, 14.5” infotainment screen in the middle of the dashboard. For a better feeling of space, the A-pillars are slimmer, to offer a panoramic view. Since the G80 has the same platform as the new Genesis SUV GV80, we can expect a 2.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and a 3.5-liter V6 turbocharged unit.
