The South Korean-based carmaker Hyundai has announced during an interview that it would introduce its top car Genesis in Australia, starting this June, the model coming with a series of new exterior details, high-tech gadgetries inside the cabin and a much more reliable powertrain under the hood.
In fact, to make things even better, the all-new 2019 Genesis G80 will arrive in two variants: the G80 3.8 with a price tag of $68,900 and the G80 3.8 Ultimate which will cost a higher $72,900. The model will be shortly followed by the long-expected G70 mid-size sedan. Full prices are listed below.
2019 Genesis G80 3.8: $68,900
2019 Genesis G80 3.8 Sport Design: $72,900
2019 Genesis G80 3.8 Ultimate: $88,900
2019 Genesis G80 3.8 Ultimate Sport Design: $92,900.
CEO Genesis Motors Australia, JW Lee, also declared that “The dynamic and luxurious new G80 sedan is a fitting flagship for the introduction of the Genesis brand to Australia”, and that the new model “ushers in a uniquely stylish and sophisticated in the large luxury segment.”
Available with the Sport Design package, the all-new 2019 Hyundai Genesis G80 will be indeed a matching model for all luxury car brands in Australia. This particular package is highlighted by the gorgeous 19-inch mesh-style alloy wheels finished in dark, along with bespoke side skirts, new front, and rear bumpers, dark sating chrome trimmings or unique dark chrome front grille.
The standard Ultimate package is offered with a lot of cool interior features, like Nappa leather, panoramic glass sunroof, heated and cooled front, and rear seats, or instrument cluster with a 7.0-inch TFT display. As standard, all models are enhanced with a 9.2-inch touch-screen media interface with satellite-navigation, onboard 27 GB hard driver, surround-view camera technology, wireless phone charging or 17-speaker Lexicon sound system.
Under the hood, as the name suggests, the 2019 Hyundai Genesis G80 is equipped with a 3.8-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine, which is rather the same engine equipping the ongoing model in Australia. The engine develops a good 232kW and 397 Nm of torque, being sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The performance and torque of the car are also given by high-performance driving modes available, such as Normal, Eco Sport and Snow, along with adaptive suspension with Dynamic Stability Control. Noticeably, this particular Australian model can also be enhanced with a fine-tuned suspension system which increases the car`s stance and grip on the roads.
