The first product to be launched in Australia under the Genesis brand, the G80 - a rebadged and updated Hyundai Genesis that launched locally in 2014 - is priced from $68,900, plus on-road costs. 

Like its Hyundai former self, the G80 is well equipped for the money.

A full suite of active safety kit also features, including nine airbags, autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, automatic high beam, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert and adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality. 

Above the entry G80 is the Ultimate, priced from $88,900.

Regardless of model chosen, a 232kW/397Nm 3.8-litre petrol V6 engine drives the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission and four different driving modes: normal, eco, sport and snow.

The Genesis Australian launch has been pushed back multiple times over the past three years thanks to Hyundai Australia's need to launch the brand correctly in our market. 

The brand’s flagship showroom is still under development in the Sydney CBD. While the G80 is the first cab off the Genesis rank in Australia, the smaller G70 - a BMW 3 Series competitor - will launch not long after the G80, and a range of SUVs is also due within the next few years.
