Genesis overview

Genesis is Hyundai’s luxury car division, pronounced ‘jen-uh-sihs’ (the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) pronunciation is ʤenəsɪs). It became its own brand in 2015 and has since sold over 1 million models. Hyundai Motor Group owns the brand.

Hyundai unveiled its first model bearing the Genesis name in 2008 at the North American International Motor Show. This rear-wheel or all-wheel sports saloon was sold under the Hyundai brand, yet there had already been some discussions over whether to bring out a separate marque.

After seven years of success breaking into the luxury car market, Hyundai decided to launch Genesis as a standalone brand. Its first model was the G90, a large saloon that built on the Hyundai Equus, which was released in 2016. Two years later came the G80, which was the second generation of the Genesis model launched under the Hyundai brand – the car that laid the foundations for this premium sub-brand.

For many years, Genesis was only available in South Korea – the base for Hyundai – and the US. However from 2021, Genesis also began marketing and selling its cars across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Russia, Canada and Australia. Genesis is praised for delivering premium models that promise a sporty driving experience for a lower price tag than many luxury brands like Jaguar and Land Rover. It competes with the likes of Lexus, Audi and BMW.

In 2021, Genesis unveiled an electrified version of the G80 at the Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, along with an electric-powered Gran Turismo concept. In the same year, it also launched the electrified GV70 SUV and its first model only available as an electric, the GV60. The brand has committed to making its entire range all-electric by 2025 and to becoming carbon neutral by 2035.

Genesis has a range of cutting-edge technologies in its electric vehicles, including a function that allows you to charge your devices by using electric energy stored within the car. The i-Pedal allows you to drive on the accelerator alone in most circumstances. As you ease off the pedal, the electric motor will actively slow the car.

Other technology is designed to make driving a Genesis model more relaxing and safer. Its smart cruise control automatically adjusts speed based on cars in front and uses the navigation to anticipate tight bends and slow the car comfortably in advance. Its navigation technology is intuitive with the ability to recognise handwriting and augmented reality to show directions. Genesis has also released remote parking assist technology, helping you move the car in and out of spaces without needing to be inside the car at all.

Popular Genesis models

The Genesis G80 – the original Genesis produced by Hyundai – remains a popular choice. It’s a premium mid-sized saloon, available as a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. It’s also been released as a Sport edition, which is powered by a 3.3-litre V6 engine. An electrified G80 has also been added to the line-up, reflecting the importance of this model to the brand.

Another much-loved model is the G70, its mid-sized SUV, which it launched to compete with the BMW X3, Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-Pace and many more. The electric version of this SUV is the fastest in its line-up and has ultra-fast charging capabilities too. In 2021, Genesis unveiled a new entry to its SUV line-up, joining the G70 and range topping G80. It is a compact, similar to a crossover, called the GV60. This model is only available as an electric version, setting the theme for later releases as Genesis works towards its 2025 all-electric target.

Manufacturer awards

Although Genesis has a short history, it has already picked up several industry accolades. In 2022, Genesis models won four prestigious iF design awards, celebrating the high quality of the company’s manufacturing. It was also named ‘Best Car Company of the Year’ at the 2023 Best Car of the Year awards.

It has also picked up a number of WhatCar? awards. The GV60 was named as the Best Electric SUV in 2023 and the GV70 scooped the Best Family SUV Interior in 2023. In other awards, IHSS named the GV80 as the Top Safety Pick in 2023.
