Genesis Motor Roadmap

Genesis Motor Roadmap is up! We were able to get ourself this image of what the third brand from Hyundai Motor Group is planning to release and also when they are doing it.

Initially when Hyundai release the new brand we were given an list of 3 cars that are soon to come out for the public, in those were the G90, the G80 and last the G70. The G90, also known as EQ900 in Korea, was unveiled in December 2015 in Korea presenting the first model for the Genesis brand and should be ready to hit showroom by this summer. Then we have the G80 which was shown at the Detroit Autoshow this year and we can also expect this model for the summer time with a light facelift. Following these two models, Genesis should be releasing the G70 but before that they decided to show a new concept model that should be the G70 inspired to, and its call the New York Concept that was shown at the New York International Auto Show.

Hyundai also told us they are expecting 3 more model for the Genesis brand, 2 of these are luxury SUVs and, what everyone is waiting for, the Sport Coupe. At this point is all about the waiting game and speculate when we are getting these models but thanks to this picture now we can mark our calendars and start saving our money.

This picture tell us that the first car to roll up is the G90 which some dealer are receiving some Demo cars for their showroom, next is the G80 in which Hyundai already showed us the production version of this model and by 2017 we should expect the G70, so can you guess which Autoshow Hyundai will choose to unveil their new model?

Not too far from the 2017 margin is followed by the Mid-Luxury SUV and we are thinking along the Santa Fe size, so maybe by 2018 we will get to see this new SUV. Now before 2020 we get the near luxury SUV, possibly along the Tucson size full filing the SUV line up but that’s not all because then we are getting the near-luxury sport coupe. One thing youll notice, they are not calling it G70 Coupe so more than likely it might not look like the G70 and it’ll have it’s own design.

If we follow the pattern of what they did with the G80 and G70, it seems that the near luxury sport coupe can be expected by 2020 and that will leave lots of car enthusiast waiting.

Some of you might notice but the Genesis Coupe model has stopped at the 2016 year in the Hyundai USA website and if you look at the Korean website, the Genesis coupe is no longer listed there. We haven’t heard confirmation from Hyundai if the Genesis coupe has been discontinued but we send them an email to confirm this. If that is the case, car enthusiast might have to wait 4 years before we see another sport coupe.
So are you guys willing to wait 4 years for another sport coupe from Hyundai/Genesis? And if so, what specs you want it to have?

    If the Genesis coupe doesn’t have a bespoke powertrain, I’m going to be very disappointed.

    I am well prepared.

      Like which N/A and turbocharged engine do you think it needs to be there?

        Well, I’d love to see a really extensive range. A base, turbo I4, an N Sport naturally-aspirated high-revving V6, an upper trim twin-turbo V6, and maybe a full-blown, supercharged V8. I don’t know what size the car will be, so maybe the V8 would be too big, or the turbo I4 too small, but I want them to really go all-out on the powertrain. I think it’s what makes the car.

        Looking longer-term, I think a switch to modular engines–like BMW and Mercedes-Benz are–would be a good idea, especially as a way to irrefutably differentiate Genesis’ engineering from Hyundai.

          Even those specs sounds very exciting and I doubt they’ll go that far out. Remember, 2 of their high end cars are already out and so far we know that the G90 will have the Tau 5.0-liter V-8 with 420 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque and base engine is the twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 with 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. And the G80 the 311-hp 3.8-liter V-6 with 311 hp aND more than likely replacing that V8 with the new 3.3TT. I doubt they’ll do all out with the Genesis brand as far as engines, more than likely they focus more on better quality matetials but possibly with the new N models they might do something different.

            Well, they absolutely need to do something to get people excited about the brand. The New York Concept was a good effort, but I’m more disheartened by the way the brand’s actual debut–with the G90 at the Detroit auto show–was almost totally overshadowed by Lexus’ debut of the new LC coupe. People went crazy over that car because it’s a design risk with some great, clever engineering underneath. Genesis is going to need a “wow” moment greater than a fairly traditional-looking, if well-executed, sedan if it’s going to make a lasting impression on luxury buyers’ minds.

            Bringing the Vision G concept into production would do wonders.

    Hyundai needs to seriously consider adding a 3rd luxury crossover to the lineup.

      Do you mean Genesis? Also we have a new article in regards to this.

        Yes – but right now they only have 2 crossovers in development for Genesis.

        • Erick

          Even tho currently crossovers are on demand, I doubt they’ll make another in the near future.

            While I agree on that point, most luxury brands will have 3, if not 4 or more crossovers and they all see crossovers as their biggest driver of sales growth.

            But then again, Hyundai also needs to shore up its mainstream crossover lineup as well (they have a new PHEV/EV crossover planned and supposedly will make the next gen Santa Fe 3-row larger).

            Hyundai management really messed up when it came to their crossover lineup and supply.

    What the heck does near luxury mean? It’s a luxury division of its own now Hyundai, don’t cut corners. I expect a $35k C Class to have the build and finish of the other cars in the brand.

      I doubt it’s related to build quality but more along the size of the car.

        Yes, I agree. But Hyundai needs to get that right when they’re marketing these vehicles. Nobody wants to see “near luxury sedan” when they mean “small luxury sedan”. Yes, the G90 is a large luxury sedan, the G80 is a midSIZE luxury sedan and the G70 is a SMALL luxury sedan. Not “near”…

          Don’t forget the G70 is also meant to be a sports sedan – “near luxury” sounds like it should be a 50/50 or 60/40 split of sports/luxury, while the N version will be closer to 100% of sport.

            I know what you mean but the C63 AMG isn’t called “near luxury” by Mercedes-Benz…

    Near = compact (3)?

      Yeah, somewhere along those lines

    Am I the only one who thinks Genesis should go ALL IN electric?

    Offer all sedans / SUVs also with 100% elelctric powertrain and rival the Tesla.

    Reply
    • bd

      Most, if not all of the Genesis lineup will be getting PHEV powertrains.

    The mid luxury SUV and the coupe should be moved up. The g70 moved back.
    Has Hyundai ever heard of a halo car? That coupe might not sell as well
    as the G70, but it will bring attention and people into the Genesis
    showroom. That Genesis coupe is 3 years overdue already. Also, the
    midsize SUV should be a priority since that is where most profit and
    sales will come from.

    3.3t with DSG should be better, 8at is too slow..add launch mode.
    move battery to the trunk
    reduce weight, less than 1500KG
    50:50 ratio
    add 7MT
    maybe add hybrid, put E-motor on front wheels
    Use aluminum material
