If you are interested in those big stories coming from the house of Genesis, the luxury wing of Hyundai, then this is one of those years, there is plenty to discuss. The brand has already launched yet another new luxury compact SUV model, named the GV70, while there is news of the new GV60 subcompact electric SUV being in the pipeline.
However, the automaker’s luxury sedan lineup, which did not see any new entrant all these years continued to update the existing ones, which make them worth our attention. Not only does the G70 model series from the luxury sedan lineup get a major refresh for the year 2022, but lineups of the midsize G80 and G90 also have plenty of news to share for their 2022 model year release, mentioned an employee of the San Bernardino Genesis dealership.
From the same source, we learned all the details of the luxury sedan lineup of Genesis that are worth sharing.
2022 Genesis G70
Genesis has given its compact sports sedan G70 a special makeover for the year 2022. Take a closer look at this magnificent sports sedan and you will find both the front and rear end of this car wearing a new design, incorporating the brand’s unique design language. The most prominent of all the design changes is the angular mesh grille that flanks on both the body sides of this sedan model with a pair of distinctive-looking twin-bar headlights. Likewise, you see the same kind of taillights mirroring the look at its rear end.
Coming to the powertrain options in the 2022 Genesis G70 sedans, they remain nearly the same with only one important omission, where the option to pair the four-cylinder engine with a manual transmission is dropped down from the feature list. Otherwise, the 2022 model year edition of the Genesis G70 carries the same 2.0-liter turbo-four engine at the base while engaging our familiar 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine as an optional upgrade to the higher trims. On the other hand, the RWD continues to be the standard drivetrain while an AWD system is still available for all trims. Then, did we mention the introduction of the new Sport+ feature package in the lineup that will dress up the sedans with a louder exhaust note, better stability control systems, a heavy-duty steering wheel, and more flexible traction?
2022 Genesis G80
This year, in 2022, Genesis has recalled the G80 sport trim for the G80 sedan series. To make them recognizable even from a distance Genesis has draped the 2022 model of G80 sedans with some unique styling cues that can be seen right at the front fascia, and through its darkened exterior trim, while a trim-specific package of 21-inch wheels show up, as they do in the GV70 series.
2022 Genesis G90
Even though there is no important change announced for the G90 series for the 2022 model year release, since it already received a mid-cycle refresh for the year 2020, a new pentagonal shield can be seen as a new addition added to its front grille.
All the three sedan models from Genesis come with the same set of safety features and infotainment system, so choose the one that appeals to you the most, suggested the Genesis dealer near Yorba Linda.
