A decade ago Hyundai began building its luxury Genesis brand — with considerable success. The car that started it all is now called the G80, a mid-sized sedan, which has been fully redesigned for the 2021 model year building on the previous two iterations, offering sleek head-turning styling and with more technology, safety features and diving aids than ever before. The G80 package carries the "Wow!" factor.

(September 27, 2020) Genesis has earned a trophy case full of accolades since Hyundai spun off its luxury nameplate as a separate division in 2015 to do battle with the likes of Lexus, Infiniti, Mercedes, BMW and Cadillac. Its luxury cars — there are now three, namely the G90, G80 and G70 — have already earned their stripes with the G70 winning North American Car of the year in 2019 and the Genesis brand ranking first in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study in 2018 and first in the 2020 Vehicle Dependability Study.

One of the most competitive segments in the luxury ranks is the compact sports sedan. Think BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Jaguar XE, Alfa Romeo Giulia. Now add the 2020 Genesis G70 to the mix. If you have little knowledge of the Genesis luxury brand spun off from Hyundai several years ago know that it has won numerous awards in its short life and the G70 is getting rave reviews in its second year of production.

Earlier this year Genesis was named the top ranked luxury automaker in Consumer Reports 2018 brand ratings. Genesis also finished second behind Porsche — and ahead of such vaunted nameplates as Audi and Lexus — in the latest J.D. Power APEAL study, which measures customer satisfaction with a brand. These and other accolades are astounding considering Genesis was spun off of parent Hyundai Motor Company less than three years ago, and currently has only two models.

With a base pricing structure staring at $41,750 the 2018 Genesis G80 is quite a remarkable automobile. Of course, the Genesis line is now framed as Hyundai's premier “up-scale” car division, similar to what we see with Toyota having its Lexus division.

Genesis G80 — Inexpensive luxury

Hyundai has been getting positive reviews from critics and customers alike for its upscale Genesis sedan, especially since the inception of the much-improved second-generation car in 2015. Perhaps that helped the South Korean company decide to create Genesis as a new, stand alone upscale brand dropping the Hyundai nameplate. It's not a new idea coming decades after Nissan/Infiniti, Toyota/Lexus and Honda/Acura.
