Genesis vehicles are built to impress, offering a wealth of innovative features and thrilling powertrains with attractive overall designs. As such, it should come as no surprise that every single Genesis model was named to the Car and Driver 2022 Editors’ Choice List.
The automotive experts at Car and Driver (C/D) researched and tested more than 400 vehicles and pared that down to a total of 116 in the final list. Here’s what they had to say about the Genesis lineup:
Genesis GV70, Compact Luxury SUV: As the newest model in the lineup, the GV70 was praised by C/D editors for its sporty handling, engine offerings, and premium interior design.
Genesis GV80, Mid-Size Luxury SUV: Similar to the GV70, the C/D editors noted that the cabin of the GV80 is also elevated and well-tailored. The SUV also stood out for its smooth, quiet ride and its many standard tech features.
Genesis G70, Entry-Luxury Car: The playful handling and premium cabin of the G70 helped this model stand out to the Car and Driver editors. Its affordable price was a bonus that was also appreciated.
Genesis G80, Mid-Size Luxury Car: To directly quote the editors at Car and Driver, the G80 was praised for “Lovely interior design, packed with features, bargain pricing.”
Genesis G90, Full-Size Luxury Car: In a crowded segment, the G90 stood out for its “silky-smooth” engine options, high-end looks, and budget-friendly pricing.

It wasn’t that long ago that the Genesis GV70 made its debut and provided drivers with exceptional style, performance, and luxury. Now, you can have all that and outstanding efficiency thanks to the all-new electrified Genesis GV70.
The electric GV70 is based on the regular GV70, keeping the features and amenities that everyone has come to know and love over the past few years. This includes its spacious, driver-focused interior that emphasizes the beauty of white space and is filled with cutting-edge technology.
With the electric GV70, you’ll also get new technologies that are designed especially for an electric SUV. As such, the multi-rapid charging system offers both 400V and 800V options. With the inclusion of 350kW rapid charging, the GV70 can go from 10-80% battery in less than 20 minutes.
Along with offering smart and quick charging, the electrified GV70 is expected to provide remarkable efficiency while maintaining the thrill that comes with driving a Genesis vehicle. The SUV will be equipped with standard all-wheel drive and is estimated to reach 96 kph in 4.5 seconds with the model’s Boost Mode.
These are just some of the highlights of the new electrified Genesis GV70. We’re excited to see updates like this from the brand, and if you’d like to learn more, contact our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.
On the outside, the G90 sports a new Crest Grille flanked by Two-Line headlamps to resemble the Genesis emblem. Also revised is that Guilloché patterned emblem, which is almost 80% thinner to elevate the G90’s design even more. The back helps to elongate the sedan thanks to the Two-Line rear combination lamps that mimic the front headlamps.
The beauty of the sedan’s exterior extends to its cabin, which has been carefully crafted with the Genesis Beauty of White Space interior design ethos in mind. The gorgeous, high-quality materials that fill the interior harmoniously blend with the updated advanced technologies. For example, the EasyClose system will close the door so you can comfortably envelop yourself in the supple leather seats without having to reach for the handle.
It’s not all about looks, though. The new Genesis G90 has been equipped with a 3.5-litre turbo engine that offers a thrilling performance of 380 horsepower. New suspension technology has also been added to the G90 to allow for improved handling and a smoother ride. And to ensure the quietest ride yet, Genesis has outfitted the sedan with its most advanced noise canceling ANC-R system.
These are just a few of the many highlights you’ll encounter in the all-new Genesis G90. To learn more, contact our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.
In its first move towards electrification, Genesis has unveiled some details about the all-new, all-electric GV60 crossover. The GV60 EV is expected to blend the luxury of Genesis — inside and out — with dynamic performance and superior efficiency.
The exterior of the new GV60 features a sleek silhouette with a front end that’s accented by the athletic Crest Grille and Quad Lamps. For the first time on a Genesis vehicle, the automaker has given the GV60 a “clamshell hood,” a single panel that combines the hood and fenders for a smooth overall appearance.
Inside, the Genesis GV60 embodies the “Beauty of White Space” design ethos to create a spacious and elegant cabin. One of the more unique features in the GV60 is the Crystal Sphere in the floating console. When the GV60 is turned off, the sphere acts as ambient light in the cockpit. But when the vehicle is ready to be driven, it turns into a Shift By Wire (SBW) controller.
A large touch screen expands from behind the steering wheel to the center dash, providing an exceptionally modern look. Other standout features inside the GV60 include “Boost” and “Drive Mode” buttons on the steering wheel as well as contrast stitching on the seats, dash, and center console.
The all-new Genesis GV60 EV is expected to arrive in early 2022 with additional information to be released in the coming months. Contact our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario, for more details.
“The Genesis G80 Sport delivers the best value to customers who want to enjoy the perfect balance of ‘Athletic Elegance’ from the G80 combined with a more dynamic driving experience,” said Genesis official. Full performance specs have not yet been released, but we do know that the G80 Sport will offer Rear Wheel Steering for maximized driving stability.
We have seen exclusive photos of the G80 Sport that showcased the new Cavendish Red exterior paint color, which draws inspiration from the name and colors of the cliffs near the north coast of Prince Edward Island. The stunning vehicle is also equipped with 20-inch G-Matrix dark alloy wheels, black headlamp bezels, and a dark glossy chrome radiator grille.
Inside, the dashboard comes in three different design options: real carbon, Sport-exclusive real aluminum, and a diamond-patterned hybrid weaving pattern. G80 Sport-exclusive seat quilting designs will also be available in a V or diamond pattern.
The all-new Genesis G80 Sport is expected to arrive very soon. For more details on when you can see it for yourself, contact our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.
Genesis is getting electrified. The premium auto brand recently announced the first-ever Genesis EV — an electric version of its G80 sedan.
The Electrified G80 looks quite a bit like the gas-powered version, but it provides a unique twist with all-electric power, long-range driving capabilities, and a green-friendly interior.
“The Electrified G80, the perfect balance of athleticism and elegance, marks the beginning of our journey into the EV market, representing Genesis in the era of electrification,” said Jay Chang, global head of the Genesis brand.
The Electrified G80 will be able to charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in a lightning-fast 22 minutes. Range estimates aren’t finalized but could end up topping 400 km.
The Electrified G80 will adapt Genesis exterior design elements with EV features, including a charging port hidden in the signature crest grille. The interior will use natural, sustainable materials for the seating, console, and trim.
A new Vehicle to Load, or V2L, feature will allow Electrified G80 owners to plug in electronics and power them with 3.6 kilowatts. The Electrified G80 will also come with key technologies like Road Active Noise Cancellation and the ride-smoothing Electronically Controlled Suspension with Road Preview.
As the first Genesis SUV, the 2021 GV80 has been designed to make a big impression. That’s especially true of its technologies. From smart safety systems to innovations that will help you stay more comfortable on the go, here are three of the coolest new GV80 tech features.
Remote Smart Parking
The GV80’s Remote Smart Parking makes Toronto parking easy. In fact, you don’t even have to be in the vehicle to do so. This system controls the steering wheel, vehicle speed, and gear shift automatically — it can even be controlled with your key from outside the vehicle.
Ergo Motion Seat
Designed with seven air cells inside, the Ergo Motion Seat provides the right side support you need depending on your driving mode and vehicle speed. This helps minimize fatigue and keep you comfortable on the go.
Highway Driving Assist II
This automated system makes highway driving easier, controlling your speed and keeping you in your lane. It monitors the distance between you and the car in front of you, keeping a safe speed and distance. The system will even bring you to a full stop and restart when the car in front of you moves.
The Genesis lineup is about to welcome its second premium SUV model: the all-new GV70. Recently unveiled in South Korea, the compact GV70 fits in well with other Genesis models while flaunting its own sporty identity.
The exterior of the GV70 is designed according to the Genesis Athletic Elegance philosophy. Highlights include a low-set crest-shaped grille, signature quad lamps, and under-bumper skid plates up front. The sides of the vehicle incorporate the trademark Genesis parabolic line, which merges with chiseled rear fenders and highlights the vehicle’s coupe-style silhouette. Rear quad lamps, a patterned bumper, and a vertically oriented muffler design complete the GV70’s look.
On the inside, the Genesis GV70 introduces an approach known as “the beauty of white space.” This design language emphasizes an airy, convenient, and comfortable layout that caters to the driver’s needs. A wide display screen sits atop a layered dash. Below the steering wheel, an elongated, oval-shaped section presents physical climate and infotainment controls. A wide console holds a rotary infotainment controller and electronic shifter.
The Genesis GV70 will also be available in an exclusive Sport trim. The exterior features 21-inch G-Matrix patterned wheels, dark chrome accents, an enlarged exhaust outlet, and a special front bumper. Inside, the GV70 Sport is styled with a sport steering wheel, unique colors, and carbon-fiber elements.
Expect more details soon on this exciting SUV. In the meantime, you’re invited to visit Genesis Downtown in Toronto to test-drive the first-ever Genesis SUV — the all-new GV80.
The 2021 Genesis G80 is coming soon, and it’s going to be stunning. This completely redesigned luxury sedan will give you an even more luxurious way to get around Toronto, combining premium features with head-turning “Athletic Elegance” design.
The new Genesis G80 will come equipped with one of two powertrains: either a 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6. Each powertrain will be available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
Inside, the 2021 G80 will combine a refined, elegant design with high-quality materials. Leatherette seating surfaces and an Integrated Memory System will come standard, along with heated front seats to help battle cold winters in Canada. Other available premium features will include leather upholstery, a wireless phone charger, heated rear seats, and a power trunk.
You will also find plenty of advanced technologies to make your busy urban lifestyle easier. Safety innovations like Blind-Spot View Monitor, Remote Smart Parking Assist, and Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist will make it easy to drive and park in the city, while standard Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance-Assist, and more will give you peace of mind out on the road.
Here at Genesis Downtown, we’re expecting the 2021 G80 to arrive later this year — and we couldn’t be more excited to get you behind the wheel of this outstanding new luxury sedan.
Genesis is known for creating beautiful vehicles, which is why it should come as no surprise that two of the brand’s models were recently honored as 2019 Good Design Award winners. Both the Mint concept car and the 2020 G90 sedan earned recognition in this prestigious annual competition.
“As a relatively new brand, Genesis has introduced a design that greatly resonates with the luxury car market,” said Luc Donckerwolke, Hyundai Motor Group’s chief design officer. “The G90 is the embodiment of flagship transportation while the Mint reinterprets what a luxurious, city-focused runabout could be. The Good Design awards are a high-water mark we aim for each time we put pen to paper.”
The brand’s Athletic Elegance design philosophy is reflected in the Mint Concept with its sculpted body lines and sweeping silhouette. The all-electric vehicle has a range of innovative design elements to help it maximize space, while also providing top-notch performance and comfort. For instance, the G-Matrix diamond-shaped pattern is used on the battery floor to help the air circulate and the battery cool. Other innovations include a swiveling bench seat to easily get in and out of the vehicle and a storage compartment that is accessed through reverse scissor doors.
The 2020 G90 is also designed with Athletic Elegance in mind. Its headlamps and taillamps incorporate the G-Matrix design, while its spacious interior utilizes the brand’s Horizontal Architecture for an elegant feel.
While the Mint concept hasn’t entered production yet, the 2020 G90 is available for you to admire — and test-drive — right here at Genesis Downtown.
