After we recently caught the first spy pictures of the next generation Genesis G80 wearing its final body, today we want to bring you an accurate render made by our friend Kksstudio.
According to reports from South Korea, the major changes will come in terms of design and powertrain as well as new advanced convenience and latest safety items. The Genesis G80 will drink from the design we have seen on the GV80 SUV Concept for some elements and is slated to debut in the third quarter of 2019.
The new Genesis G80 will be a complete new model. The design utilizes elements of the GV80 concept like the headlights and taillights or the front grille. Like the current products, it focuses on proportions and features a pentagonal crest grille and a quad head tail lamp. The company explained that ergonomics is the core design of the interior according to the concept of Human Centered Luxury.
The powertrain will be updated as we have anticipated, with the new Theta-3 engine and updated Lambda-3 engine. With a 2.5-liter Turbo from the Theta-3 family, will reach 300hp, while the Lambda-3 will use a new 3.5-liter Twin Turbo that will reach 400hp (the Genesis G80 will be the first one to use it). This new engines will replace the N/A 3.8 liter and 3.3 Twin Turn. In addition, a 48V mild hybrid variant is being considered to reduce emissions.
