One of One: How Genesis Plants to Compete with Bentley and Porsche

Who wouldn’t want a gorgeous and bespoke Genesis with loads of customizations?

Hyundai’s luxury division, Genesis, will step up further in the luxury car industry by offering a new bespoke department to cater to the extra wealthy. Its first attempt, known as "Your Genesis," failed once to reach out to the other parts of the world apart from South Korea. This new bespoke department is geared toward a global audience, but that also means Genesis will have to compete with the biggest luxury players in the market. Is the brand biting off more than it can chew?

Watch The Genesis GV70 Put Up A Good Fight Before Being Incarcerated By The Tesla Model Y

Standing up against EVs is a big task, but the Genesis GV70 did a fair job

The GV70 is Genesis’ first compact-luxury SUV, and it is a fantastic package overall. It is based on the G70 sedan, which means it has a sporty cred to it. And, Genesis being a luxury brand, you get all the bells and whistles as well. There are two engine options on offer, one being a four-pot turbo engine, and the other, a twin-turbo V-6.

Sam from Sam ‘CarLegion’ brought in a V-6 GV70 to take on a Tesla Model Y for a couple of drag races and a rolling race. The Model Y, being an EV, was going to be the winner for sure, but did the GV70 put up a good fight before going down? Let’s find out.

Genesis keeps up the pressure and their G90 aims to give its German rivals more than a run for their money

Genesis may have only been around for only five years, but it has already proved it can give “the old dogs” a run for their money. Not only are they not stopping but they are, once again, taunting the German trio in a very bold move.

We also know that BMW is about to give us a new 7-Series very soon, so it will be interesting to see how the all-new Genesis G90 will fare.

"Drift Mode" Is Already More Overplayed Than the Macarena

"Drift Mode" Is Already More Overplayed Than the Macarena

Drift mode was cool at first, but now it’s just a stupid gimmick that’s showing up in the worst places

When Ford launched the Focus RS with its famed, albeit accidentally created drift mode, it was a very cool marketing gimmick. There’s not a lot of use for such a thing for most folks, but it’s cool to say you have the functionality. What we didn’t know at the time, however, was that Ford’s happy little accident sparked a whole new trend, and that trend is already starting to get ridiculous.

Genesis GV60 - A Luxurious And Plusher Equivalent Of The Hyundai Ioniq 5 And The Kia EV6

The Genesis GV60 looks like a grown-up hatch rather than a crossover and is set to arrive in 2022

Genesis has forayed into the crossover EV segment with the new GV60. This isn’t the first electric Genesis, as the company has previously unveiled the G80e and we’ve even spotted the electric version of the GV70 called the GV70e. The GV60 is the Genesis equivalent of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. Considering Genesis is the South Korean group’s luxurious division, the GV70 will also be more premium and plusher than its cousins. So, does that mean we’ll have a Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E rivaling product with a heftier price tag?

2022 Genesis G90

The BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class Better Watch Out

Despite manufacturers churning out a variety of luxury SUVs of late, full-size luxury sedans are still the epitome of opulence and lavish luxury. Even now, the luxury sedan market is quite competitive. The new Mercedes S-Class recently came out, Audi has updated their A8, and an all-new BMW 7 Series is on its way. The German trio has been killing it for years, with the occasional Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, or Cadillac CT6 securing a rather insignificant market share. Now, however, Genesis is the one gunning for the full-size luxury sedan segment, by coming up with an all-new G90. Here’s what we know so far.

The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake Is A Tasty Piece of Forbidden Fruit

Over in Europe, Genesis is Aiming For the Audi A4, Avant, BMW 3 Series touring, and the Mercedes C-Class Estate

Europe’s wagon market just got a little bit bigger, as Korean brand Genesis is looking to take its piece of the pie with the all-new G70 Shooting Brake. Of course, it’s not a shooting brake as you or I would think of it – as in it only has two doors – so it’s really just another wagon. A fine looking wagon, at that. Featuring the G70’s sporty front end paired with a sloping rear roof and tons of cargo room, the G70 Shooting Brake has a lot to offer. Unfortunately, it won’t land in the United States because, well, we’re SUV people, right?
