Hyundai wasn’t the only one suprising us with a never seen before car, Genesis Motor manage to do the same with something we were not expecting.
Now lets talk about the G80 Sport, this seems to be the same move Hyundai did for the Elantra Sport and soon from Kia with the Forte Sport, picking up their sedan models and upgrading them with a turbo and some changes on the exterior. So let’s talk about the exterior, the first thing will be obvious, and that is the front end of this new model. We can see the same shape of grill but this time with honeycombs with an additional grill at the bottom and bigger fog lights vents but with this models the fog lights are gone giving a much bigger room for a larger honeycomb grill compared to the sedan model that has the same led fog lights from the tucson. Still has the same G80 feeling but with the extra sporty look, now that’s not the only thing they have done.
It can’t be just look and they made sure to add the new powertrain a lot of people were asking, that is the 3.3 twin-turbo engine G80 sport has the 3.3L GDi Twin turbo with 370Horsepower and 52kgf.m of torque, plus some improvements in gasoline efficiency. Also the G80 will have some other powertrains, that includes the 3.8 N/A and 2 Diesel engine, the 2.2 and 3.0.
Now what about their services ( for Korean customers only) they guaranteed 5 yrs/100,000 KM, 3 years home to home customer Care Sevice for free and And using Bluelink Service 3years for free.
Now when can we expect this to be on show rooms, well they will launch the G80 Sport model by fourth quater this year.
