The new Genesis G80 Sport has been overhauled with all-wheel drive and an optional new rear-wheel steering setup to grip through corners like a Halo Warthog that is reduced sufficient to the floor to not flip about.
If you don’t like the Halo Warthog reference, which is the identify for the game’s big House Maritime 4X4 that steers with all 4 wheels, then maybe you will be much more amazed to know the Genesis rear-wheel steering process is also comparable to the set up on the new Mercedes-Benz S-Course, but not at S-Class price ranges.
The G80 is presently readily available with a 2.5-liter turbo four-cylinder earning 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque and a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 creating 375 HP and 391 lb-ft of torque, but people solutions may possibly improve for the new Sport model.
Specifics on the new rear-steer program will be shared at a afterwards day, as properly as energy and pricing, apparently. The statement tends to make no mention of it, but the images in the Genesis press launch also disclosed the G80 Sport will both be readily available, or could appear standard with all-wheel generate as well.
Genesis did announce the G80 Activity receives a new dim gloss chrome grille, black bezels all around the headlights, dim chrome on the facet moldings, a tweaked rear bumper with a new diffuser layout, and the brand’s G-Matrix patterned 20-inch dark alloy wheels with possibly red or black brake calipers.
The G80 Sport’s inside gets 3 shade possibilities which includes Sevilla pink dressing and dashboard trims now available in what Genesis statements is true aluminum or actual carbon, as effectively as a new diamond sample alternative. You even have the preference involving matching diamond or V-patterned seat quilting.
As another person who personally thinks the current BMW 5 Sequence is the very best car that the German automaker sells at the instant, I’m extremely curious if competition from this new Genesis G80 Sport will make even my favored BMW a little less important. Sadly, the whole power, specs and pricing will be announced closer to the G80 Sport’s sale day this tumble.
