Genesis Luxury Brand: Raising the Standards

2017 Genesis G80

2017 Genesis G80

Hyundai models are known for their durable yet affordable designs. The Genesis, now known as the G80, in particular had been renowned for its high-class design and exclusive styling. The new Genesis luxury brand comes with a large offering of features so you can enjoy the model that you choose. If you want sophisticated styling and next-generation technology, the Genesis might be right for you.

According to Bloomberg, the latest Genesis models come with a refreshed look that sets them apart on the road. Rivaling more expensive models from elite German brands, Genesis’ lineup is putting other automakers to shame. Testing a Caspian black 2017 Genesis G90, Bloomberg correspondent Hannah Elliott said that “the new Genesis brand will be a separate beast entirely…Genesis has come strongly out of the gate with this flagship sedan.”

The G90 is one of the latest versions of the Genesis luxury models that is on the market, offering an array of premium features. These include, but are not limited to, alloy wheels, heated leather seating, a 12.3-inch touchscreen display, Heads-Up Display (HUD), and more. Best of all, Genesis badging showcases this brand’s luxury.

Under the hood of the G90 is a powerful 365-horsepower engine that can do 0 to 60 in just 5.5 seconds. A smooth transmission provides a pleasant ride, while a tuned suspension ensures optimum handling. There’s nothing like the new G90, or the Genesis brand for that matter. For those who want luxury without pretension, check out the new Genesis luxury lineup.




Mitsubishi Mirage Production Takes a Break for 2016

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

Although the Mitsubishi Mirage is a fairly new model, having been introduced for the first time in 2014, the automaker has announced that the small hatchback will not be a part of its 2016 lineup. Instead, the Mitsubishi Mirage production is set to take a one-year hiatus, with the automaker promising that the popular hatchback will be back and better than ever for 2017.

Mitsubishi’s plan is to unveil an updated 2017 Mirage in the spring of 2016, in the meantime unloading additional 2015 models it has on hand without sacrificing sales. It’s a win-win for Mitsubishi, who won’t have to build and market a 2016 model, but will maintain continuous stock of the vehicle until the 2017 model makes its debut next year.

Although there is very little information on the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage’s updates, Car and Driver reported that a four-door sedan variant will be available, and there will be significant upgrades to the powertrain and chassis.
