    Re: At the Ring: 2017 Genesis G80

    The current Genesis was tuned for Town Car softness. Despite bringing Lotus in at the last hour of development, it's sloppy as hell (but comfy).

    Suspension design and tuning is a weak point for the Koreans.


    My Santa Fe had a spectacularly silky V6 engine and nice interior but rode harder than my '91 Saab turbo 'vert on dry rotted tires and near-original springs and shocks.

    Its taken GM billions of dollars and two decades of top tier GT racing to develop the Technology that puts its cars at the top of the pile in handling.
    I mean, Camaro's that put 911 in its place.. thats epic..

    For Hyundai, its going to take something more than a ring photo opp.

    I thought the G80 was the coupe and the G90 was the sedan. I'm so confused.

    I heard rumors that it going be moving in price to the same league as the E-Class and 5 series sedans! Can you say sticker shock! I got done pricing the current model 535ix and total price was $68,7K! It all in the packages! So if you are buying it; you talk down to $64K and sales tax and fees bring it back up to the MSRP $68K! Of course if are leasing it; then it about $760 a month for 4 year lease!

    G90 is the large sedan that competes with S-Class, 7 series, LS460 and A8.

    You maybe right about current model, but I expect that will change with the next generation G80! It will be the third generation Genesis and every generation this sedan has improve greatly from it's previous generation! And the G80 is the sedan that going represent Genesis the new division; so I expect extra features that top off even that of the new E-Class from Genesis division!

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    G90 = Equus
    G80 = Genesis sedan

    Genesis Coupe is still, well, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe. We'll see what happens moving forward.

    All six Genesis models are to be RWD. That should make some purists happy.

    There is some speculation as to whether the FWD Azera replacement will be badged as a Genesis G70.

    That would make the Genesis lineup a bit sedan heavy.

    Sounds like a certain American Luxury car brand, doesn't it?
