Bring on the Competition: 2018 Genesis G80 Test Drive

In the luxury automotive world, “base model” is a relative term, and it’s not something we get to test often. Usually, our test vehicles are equipped with a lot of the popular equipment and the most performance-oriented engine options. That was the case with the $56,000 Genesis G80 Sport we tested back in February. Following J.D. Power’s recent ranking of Genesis as the top automaker in the U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study, we wanted to see what a base G80 had to offer. For that, we hopped…

Power Move: Genesis Tops 2018 J.D. Power Study

What a difference a year makes. The 2018 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study has been released, and one thing is clear — Hyundai is on a tear.

New-School Luxury: 2018 Genesis G90 Test Drive Review

Thirty years ago, Toyota and Nissan both followed Honda’s lead by creating a separate luxury division thus resulting in Lexus, Infiniti and Acura, respectively. In a similar move, Hyundai introduced its Genesis luxury brand starting with the 2017 model year launching with two big sedans. By 2021, Genesis will have a six-model lineup including sedans, coupes and SUVs, but it’s already easy to see that Genesis is having a much more luxurious start than its 1980s-era Japanese rivals did.
