The new Genesis G80 Activity has been overhauled with all-wheel generate and an optional new rear-wheel steering setup to grip via corners like a Halo Warthog that’s small adequate to the floor to not flip above.
If you really do not like the Halo Warthog reference, which is the name for the game’s big Space Maritime 4X4 that steers with all four wheels, then potentially you will be a lot more impressed to know the Genesis rear-wheel steering system is also similar to the setup on the new Mercedes-Benz S-Course, but not at S-Class charges.
The G80 is at present out there with a 2.5-liter turbo four-cylinder building 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque and a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 generating 375 HP and 391 lb-ft of torque, but people selections might adjust for the new Sport model.
Particulars on the new rear-steer system will be shared at a later on day, as nicely as energy and pricing, evidently. The statement helps make no point out of it, but the photos in the Genesis push launch also uncovered the G80 Sport will either be accessible, or could appear conventional with all-wheel generate as perfectly.
Genesis did announce the G80 Activity gets a new darkish gloss chrome grille, black bezels all-around the headlights, dim chrome on the facet moldings, a tweaked rear bumper with a new diffuser structure, and the brand’s G-Matrix patterned 20-inch darkish alloy wheels with both pink or black brake calipers.
The G80 Sport’s inside receives three coloration options which include Sevilla crimson dressing and dashboard trims now offered in what Genesis promises is genuine aluminum or actual carbon, as perfectly as a new diamond pattern solution. You even have the choice between matching diamond or V-patterned seat quilting.
As anyone who individually thinks the present BMW 5 Collection is the very best automobile that the German automaker sells at the moment, I’m very curious if competition from this new Genesis G80 Activity will make even my favourite BMW a very little considerably less major. Sadly, the full electricity, specs and pricing will be introduced closer to the G80 Sport’s sale date this fall.
