Hyundai's upscale Genesis brand has announced its first two models, the G80 and G90 sedans, will go on sale next month carrying MSRPs of $54,000 and $84,000, respectively. Uncharacteristically, those prices include delivery/destination charges, scheduled maintenance, satellite radio subscriptions and navigation map updates for five years, or 100,000 km.
Genesis says its "modern, simplified" pricing structure also includes at-home service that brings a car to a potential buyer's home for a test drive, and also allows a customer to finalize the deal on a new car at their home.
The G80 (nee Hyundai Genesis) comes with a 3.8L V6 making 311 hp mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and AWD. Standard kit includes Nappa leather, open-pore wood trim, bi-xenon headlights, LED tail-, fog- and daytime running lights, panoramic sunroof, navigation with backup camera, 14-speaker stereo, heated/ventilated front seats with 16-way driver and 12-way front passenger adjustment, heated rear seats and heated steering wheel. Safety features include autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind spot detection with rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist, and adaptive cruise control.
