Genesis made two important announcements yesterday. First, Hyundai's luxury brand announced that its customers can as of now go through the company's website to make a reservation with deposit to be among the first owners of the 2021 Genesis G80.
The Genesis G80 is getting some notable improvements for the new model-year, particularly in terms of styling. The first Canadian deliveries will take place in the second half of this year.
The firm also unveiled Canadian pricing of the next edition of its sport sedan, the 2021 Genesis G70. The car will be available starting at $43,000 and, as is the case with all the brand's models, transportation and preparation costs are included, as are Genesis valet parking, regular maintenance, Genesis Connected Services and road map updates, all for a period of 5 years or 100,000 kilometres.
Quite frankly, add up everything included in that offer and it merits serious consideration.
And, in a reflection of the current realities imposed by the pandemic, the 2021 Genesis G70 can also be ordered online – though it will require a bit of homework, since a total of six variants are available. Four of those are equipped with the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder (252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque), and two with the 3.3L twin-turbocharged V6 (365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque).
Here's what the offer looks like:
|2021 Genesis G70|
|G70 2.0T Advanced||AWD||A8||$43,000|
|G70 2.0T Sport||RWD||M6||$45,500|
|G70 2.0T Elite||AWD||A8||$47,000|
|G70 2.0T Prestige||AWD||A8||$52,000|
|G70 3.3T Prestige||AWD||A8||$56,000|
|G70 3.3T Sport||AWD||A8||$58,000|

In addition, for 2021, Genesis has announced that all of its vehicles will now have LED headlights as standard equipment. This was not the case with certain base variants.
As a result, Genesis has become the first automotive brand in Canada to have all variants of all its models rated the best possible Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
