To launch six new models by 2020.
The Korean Car Blog has managed to photograph the product roadmap of Hyundai’s luxury brand, Genesis, at a presentation. The roadmap reveals that Genesis is working on six new products, including two SUVs, that will launch by 2020.
As seen in the roadmap, the first products to arrive following the flagship Genesis G90 are the Genesis G80 and Genesis G70. While the former is a rebadged Hyundai Genesis, the latter is an all new model that was previewed as the Genesis New York concept at the 2016 New York Motor Show. The G70 will target compact luxury sedans such as the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C Class.
There has been talk of SUVs being introduced with the Genesis badge, and the product roadmap further affirms the speculation. Towards the end of 2017, Genesis will introduce a mid-size luxury SUV which is likely to be based on the Hyundai Santa-Fe. By 2020, Genesis will add another SUV in the lineup, which is described as a “near luxury SUV”.
Genesis will also introduce a successor to the Hyundai Genesis Coupe. It could rival 2-door 2+2 coupes like the BMW 4 Series, Mercedes C Class Coupe, Audi A5 and the Lexus RC.
