2017 Genesis G80 Price Increases Without the Hyundai Badge

1

The 2017 Genesis G80 might be the brand’s first model, but it’s really a successor to the Hyundai Genesis sedan.

In an effort to make a stronger push int he luxury market, Hyundai has created the Genesis sub-brand and the G80’s pricing has been announced. Starting from $42,350 including destination, the 2017 Genesis G80 is $2,650 more than the outgoing 2016 Hyundai Genesis sedan. The company does justify the price increase with plenty of new standard equipment that comes from the current Genesis sedan’s discontinued Tech Package. That includes automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, high-beam assist and adaptive cruise control. The Tech Package was previously priced at $3,500.

The standard model comes equipped with a 3.8-liter V6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Opting for all-wheel drive on the standard model will cost $2,500 additional. At the top of the range is the 2017 Genesis G80 5.0, featuring a 5.0-liter V8 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

There are two packages available on both the 3.8 RWD and 3.8 AWD models: Premium Package and Ultimate Package.

The Ultimate Package runs $4,200 and requires the Premium Package. For the price, it adds premium leather seating surfaces, power driver seat cushion extender and side bolster, genuine matte finish wood trim and aluminum trim, full color heads-up display, premium 9.2-inch touchscreen and navigation with HD display, a Lexicon 17-speaker audio system, power trunk lid, dual mode front vent control and CO2 sensor.

    The base price is higher than last year’s, but so is the standard equipment. They also changed the trim levels. If you option it the same, the price is pretty similar to last year’s model. If you then consider the addition of 3 years of maintenance, 3 years of BlueLink connected services, and Valet service, the value is better than last year’s model.

    What remains to be seen, are the levels of incentives, and discounts on the new brand.
