New Delhi: Genesis, the independent luxury premium brand of the South Korean Hyundai Motor Co, presented the luxury sedan G80 Sport worldwide on Tuesday. The car will hit the US market in the third quarter of this year.
According to the company, the G80 Sport builds on the existing design and functional foundations of the G80 while offering a more athletic exterior design that evolves from the Genesis “Athletic Elegance” design identity with the newly added interior and exterior features that make it up a part.
The new model comes with the exclusive 20-inch light alloy wheels in dark sputtering with G-Matrix pattern and two additional brake caliper colors in black and red. The rear has a horizontal line that gives the G80 Sport a spacious look. In addition, the company has also adjusted the color of the trunk lid and added a new diffuser design to the redesigned bumper, Genesis said in a media release.

The G80 Sport gets an exclusive new color: “Cavendish Red”. In addition, three exclusive color options have been added for the interior, including monotone black with a choice of gray or red stitching and Seville red, Genesis added.
Inside, the G80 Sport has the model-specific three-spoke steering wheel with rear-wheel steering (RWS) for maximum driving stability. The dashboard trim is available in three different designs, including Sport-exclusive real aluminum, real carbon and a diamond-patterned hybrid weave that debuts for the first time in the G80 Sport.
According to the automaker, the model also offers the new G80 Sport-exclusive quilted seat designs based on the choice of a diamond or V-pattern.
Genesis was launched as a separate luxury division of Hyundai in 2015.
