Genesis: Oz launch pushed back to Q4


Luxurious brand’s arrival delayed as soon as all over again

Genesis, luxury subsidiary of Hyundai, will not be arriving in Australia until at minimum the fourth quarter of 2018 – after previously remaining scheduled for the 3rd quarter.

General public relations manager for Hyundai Australia, Guido Schenken, verified the news this week, this means we would not see the G70 (major) or G80 (previously Hyundai Genesis) until finally really late this calendar year.

Regretably, the brand’s PR supervisor was unable to cite any official causes for the delay.

It can be almost been two full years because the updated G80 (beneath) was exposed in North The united states, headlined by the addition of a new ‘Sport’ quality that includes the exact same 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 that is now accessible in the Kia Stinger.

Originally, the G80 was meant to spearhead the brand’s start in Australia through 2017, but the rollout has been delayed on various situations given that.

Also, Genesis has exposed and released the mid-size G70 in markets like North The us – which shares a great deal of its mechanical bundle with the aforementioned Stinger – and is also high on the want listing for Australia.
