Full six-car line-up of Hyundai’s luxury brand Genesis is revealed in new leaked image; car maker confirms its authenticity

The six-car lineup of Hyundai’s new luxury brand Genesis has been revealed in an image leaked online by The Korean Car Blog.

The six models, all of which have been officially confirmed by Genesis, will start with the G90 before smaller G80 and G70 saloons arrive later this year.

The image confirms that a mid-sized luxury SUV is then due sometime around 2017 and 2018, ahead of a smaller SUV and sports coupé model.

2016 Genesis G90 review

The image offers a glimpse of the design for each upcoming model, suggesting that all share the same basic language. This suggests they’ll feature similar wide-mouthed grilles, like the one of the G90.

The picture also reveals that four models will be luxury and two ‘near luxury’, hinting at the sort of price brackets each model will fall into.

What Hyundai did next - prestige, performance and changing perceptions

The G90 is a rival to the BMW 7 Series, so of the models due this year, the G80 will likely be a 5 Series-sized model and priced as such, while the G70 will have its sights set on the 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class.

No more information has been provided at this time, but this image suggests the car maker's second and third models will be revealed in the coming months.

Our Verdict

Hyundai Genesis
The Hyundai Genesis is powered by a 3.8-litre V6 petrol engine

The Korean firm has made progress in its quest to match executive saloons from Audi, Mercedes and BMW, but on this evidence there's still work to do

To be fair we probably should have got the older rear wheel drive coupe that America got. Rather than the god awful Veloster.

That was a much more appealing and image improving model. A better engine range too!!
