Genesis Google Home Remote Start

I know, you are probably thinking how did we survive this long with a digital assistant to remotely open our car doors and put the air con on, but actually now that we got them we may get so used to them that we can’t live without them. This new Genesis Google Assistant seems to be one of those things. 

I mean, the features this service offers are pretty cool and can become handy in a number of situations. The video below tries to portray a couple of occasions where Genesis Google Assistant can make life a lot easier. The system utilizes Genesis app for the Google Assistant to remote start, lock or send a destination to their car via voice commands on Google Home, eligible Android phones or iPhones.

So you have a number of ways to communicate with your Genesis Google Assistant: Voice commands via the Assistant on Google Home, Voice commands via the Google Assistant on eligible Android phones or iPhones, and Text commands via the Google Assistant on a smartphone. You are going to need a PIN number to make the assistant run your orders, and you better keep it protected because your car can get hacked with it.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis Virtual Guide Is an Augmented Reality User Manual

Genesis Virtual Guide

Being the luxury sub-brand of Hyundai, Genesis is constantly on the lookout to improve their game and make their cars comparable to the European rivals. This time they have found an area improvement that doesn’t really have anything to do with the actual car. Genesis Virtual Guide is really a fancy user manual that is only harder to figure out than a traditional one if you are older than thirteen. 

But hey, it’s something they can flaunt in the face of the competition and maybe even impress a few customers enough to consider the Genesis G80 as their next luxury sedan over the established Merc or Bimmer. Genesis Virtual Guide makes use of augmented reality technology so any part of the car you know nothing about or can’t figure out how to operate you just point your smartphone camera on it and the app, recognizing the bit you are seeking information on, loads up the appropriate part of the user manual. And best of all, it’s interactive and has movies and stuff so you won’t even have to read text.

Genesis Virtual Guide app contains a number of informational guides including: 135 how-to videos and 25 3-D overlay images that appear once users scan areas of their vehicle, like the engine bay. It’s a pretty smart thing, but the truth is most Genesis buyers are not anything like the young and tech savvy woman featured in this video, but men who have gone past their middle age and many of them have trouble dialing a number with a smartphone, let alone use augmented reality. Still, it’s a pretty good effort on Hyundai’s part and definitely a plus for Genesis cars in those comparison tests.

PostHeaderIcon The G80 Proves Genesis Is Off to Good Start

In the beginning, Hyundai created Genesis, a premium label under which the South Korean automaker could sell luxury vehicles without the stigma of its value-driven name historically associated with duds like the Excel and a low-cost-before-all value proposition. Hyundai saw that value was good. Yet, instead of resting solely on those merits, the Genesis division is elevated to loftier goals – goals of uncompromised luxury and performance, while undercutting nemesis brands with less-costly price tags.

Hyperbole aside, Genesis has seemingly achieved that goal. See, I’ve spent a week with the 2018 Genesis G80 Sport, the brand’s mid-size executive sedan fitted with a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6, an eight-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive, and a stiffer suspension over the standard G80. As a jaded journalist who’s driven plenty of high-end sedans with outrageous power, the Genesis had much to prove. But dadgummit, the G80 is simply impressive. It’s soft and cushy in every way when the drive mode is set to normal. The cabin is church mouse quiet, even over broken roads. And its driving controls are butter smooth, with throttle and brake inputs rewarded with linear responses and the steering on-point, though a bit on the vague side. Select Sport mode, though, and the twin-turbocharged G80 comes alive.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis’ Rush To Separate From Hyundai Has All The Makings Of A Hasty, Ill-Timed Decision

It’s never a good feeling when you wake up to news that immediately raises your eyebrows. But that’s exactly what happened earlier this morning when I clicked an alert on my phone about Genesis’ decision to separate from Hyundai long before it intended to. Apparently, the news is legitimate, too, because according to Automotive News, Hyundai’s two-year old luxury brand is all set to introduce a new retail strategy in the U.S. that will “accelerate” its separation from Hyundai, thus cutting down the number of Hyundai dealerships that are authorized to sell Genesis models.

The play at independence is surprising, not because Genesis wants to do it (there were already plans for it) but because the initial plan called for this separation to happen two or three years down the road. Instead, it could happen as early as next year even though the current dealership setup between the two brands is still itself a work-in-progress. Neither Hyundai nor Genesis have provided details on how Genesis plans to establish its own dealership network, but it is telling that Genesis’ decision may have some half-baked elements to it when its own general manager, Erwin Raphael, admits to Auto News that the company has to make “very difficult decisions in the short run in order to ensure that we take care of our… dealers in the long run.” However this story unfolds, it’s clear that this is not what Hyundai intended when it decided to launch a sub-brand that will provide its customers a distinct lineup of luxury vehicles in the mold of Lexus and Infiniti.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis’ New Trademark Filings Hint At Something Special For Hyundai’s Fledgling Luxury Brand

Hyundai’s Genesis brand is slowly taking shape. The G80 and G90 sedans are already out in the market. The entry-level G70 is set to follow suit along with two SUVs and a performance sports coupe by 2020. While Genesis hasn’t announced names for these models, recent trademark filings uncovered by Motor Authority sheds light on possibilities. What’s more, Genesis is also planning a lineup of luxury and performance variants akin to Mercedes-AMG and BMW’s M Division.

Among the most notable trademark applications featured in the filing pertain to a lineup of models badged with a “GT” nomenclature, including the “GT60,” “GT70,” “GT80,” and “GT90.” We can already guess the GT80 and the GT90 to be more upscale versions of the G80 and G90, respectively. Likewise, the GT60 and the GT70 could fit the same profile when both the G60 and G70 ostensibly comes out in the near future. Moving away from the sedans and coupes, the filings also point to a full-scale family of crossovers and SUVs that will inevitably wear the “GV” nameplate. We already saw hints of that when Genesis revealed the GV80 Concept at the New York Auto Show. The production version of that concept will likely sit as the range-topping SUV of the new brand with the GV60 and GV70 models sitting below it. Once all these models hit the market (Genesis is aiming for a complete lineup by 2020), the luxury sub-brand that started off as a Hyundai model will have evolved into a full-fledged luxury automaker.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis Boss Snubs His Nose On Halo Cars, As He Should

Halo cars have always been a big thing in the auto industry, largely because they represent the pinnacle of what an automaker is capable of. There’s always been room for them in the business, and there will always be room for them for as long as pride and vanity remain true to a company’s beliefs. So it is surprising, maybe eve a little refreshing, to see a company boss not only dismiss the notion of halo cars, but outright shoot down any plans for his brand ever making one. That much was made clear by Genesis global brand chief Manfred Fitzgerald, who promised that Hyundai’s new luxury brand would be all about incredible design, top-class luxury, and unrivaled customer service.

Speaking with Motoring, Fitzgerald made no bones about his disinterest in developing a go-fast halo model, calling them meaningless to the kind of customers that Genesis wants to bring into its fold. Or in his own words, “if you need a halo vehicle and all that, that’s not our spiel.” Instead of going down that route, Fitzgerald wants Genesis to focus its attention on making “great products” that its customers will appreciate. Ironically, Genesis is setting its sights on companies like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi, three car brands that have their own histories with halo models. Then again, these brands are also established enough to build halo models without compromising the integrity of their core lineups, whereas Genesis is still trying to lay a solid foundation for itself as Hyundai’s new luxury brand.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis GV80 Concept

Hyundai’s luxury Genesis brand entered the market with two impressive sedans — the G90 and G80 — and the company’s latest concept car from the 2017 New York Auto Show is here to confirm that the Korean company is set to keep its promise and release four more vehicles by 2020. Dubbed GV80, Genesis’ new concept is the first SUV to wear the badge and previews a competitor for the BMW X5.

Described as a vehicle that “strikes a perfect balance between elegance and versatility,” the GV80 is a rather sporty proposition and represents a significant departure from Genesis’ current design language. “The GV80 Concept is an SUV that alludes to the confidence and evolution of the Genesis brand – its design is timeless, with an understated yet dynamic overall surface complexity,” said Head of Genesis design, Luc Donckerwolke.

Alongside the exquisite exterior design, the concept car also features an innovative infotainment display, as well as a hydrogen propulsion system. The latter remains a mystery, unfortunately, but it’s a sign that Hyundai’s alternative drivetrain tech will soon find its way into Genesis products.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis to Launch Competitors for BMW 6 Series

Genesis Motors is less than two years old but it’s already showcasing some impressive skills. Born out of Hyundai’s desire to play with the big boys in the premium market, the Korean luxury brand has launched two sedans, the G80 and the G90, in less than a year. And, according to Hyundai, it won’t stop here, with a sports coupe and two SUVs scheduled to be introduced by 2020. More recently, Genesis also expressed interest in bringing a grand tourer to the market.

That’s the word from Genesis head of design Luk Donckerwolke (previously of Audi, Lambo, and Bentley), who told Australian media at the New York Auto Show that the brand wants a competitor for the BMW 6 Series and Mercedes-Benz SL.

“What we are doing here is creating the first step… To be honest, I’m not really looking at the others, I have the advantage of creating something new. I don’t have to look at others, but there’s certainly going to be a Gran Turismo two-door,” said Donckerwolke, hinting that the Korean grand touer will have a fresh design compared to its rivals, which often look back on classic styling cues.

But design won’t be the only thing that will make this vehicle stand out. Unlike the 6 Series and the Merc SL, Genesis’ two-door won’t have a naturally aspirated V-8 engine. With the brand looking to move into future powertrains technologies, the range-topping model, likely to deliver at least 400 horsepower, will most likely use a twin-turbo six-cylinder or maybe even a hybrid. A fuel cell drivetrain like in the new GV80 concept is also under consideration.

“As much as I like to drive V-8s, I believe electrification is going to be a main element, like the powertrain of this [Genesis GV80 concept] having a range-extender fuel cell for an electric vehicle or an electric powertrain, it’s a great source. Hyundai and Genesis are pioneers of fuel cell technology, being the first company that has put fuel cell technology in production and on sale, it’s the way to go,” said Genesis brand chief Manfred Fitzgerald.

There is no official timetable for the luxury grand tourer, but it’s safe to assume that it will hit dealerships within the next four to five years.

SUVs and crossovers are all the rage at this year’s New York Auto Show, and one of the most rage-y of them all is the Genesis GV80 Concept. This fuel cell concept previews an upcoming luxury SUV from Hyundai’s sub-brand in charge of high-end models, Genesis. 

Despite being forward-looking with its on-board technology Genesis GV80 Concept has a traditional approach to luxury. It puts emphasize no size, interior space, exterior bling, and indulgent features such as a 22-inch curved OLED infinity display or a concave gorilla glass touchpad and knurled metal wheel with handwriting recognition. But it does feature the latest plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric technology to combine eco-performance and capability. Not that you can expect to see this in a near-future production model, but some day.

“The GV80 Concept is a SUV that alludes to the confidence and evolution of the Genesis brand – its design is timeless, with an understated yet dynamic overall surface complexity,” said Head of Genesis Design, Luc Donckerwolke. “These are all characteristics that embody Genesis products and delicately reflect distinctive elements, which you’ll continue to see in future models from our brand.”

PostHeaderIcon Genesis Steps Up To Take A Swing At SUVs With The Sleek GV80 Concept

So far, Genesis Motors is off to a pretty decent start. The brand was founded in 2015, launching into the luxury segment with the G90 sedan as its premium flagship model. But, as we all know, sedans will only take you so far in the current automotive market. If you really wanna make a dent, you’re gonna need something bigger, or more specifically, an SUV. Enter the GV80, Genesis’ latest concept vehicle, which just debuted at this year’s New York International Auto Show and offers us a preview of future models to come from the South Korean brand. The concept includes a variety of tasty aesthetic cues both inside and out, as well as a few hints at the latest technology that will arrive alongside them, but the most interesting thing about this concept is its plug-in hybrid fuel cell powertrain, a feature Genesis promises it’ll include in forthcoming models.

Unfortunately, Genesis doesn’t elaborate on the particulars of this unusual engine setup, so we’ll just have to wait until the next concept for further details. Still, there’s a few interesting tidbits worth picking apart here, namely the way the concept looks, what it brings to the table in the luxury SUV segment, and how it plans on coddling its passengers. And, more importantly, how much of this concept gloss is expected to actually make it production?

PostHeaderIcon Genesis Rolled Out The Goods For The MVPs Of The Pro Bowl

The countdown to Super Bowl LI is filled to the brim with events spread throughout what is now referred to as “Super Bowl Week.” One of the highlight events of this week is the Pro Bowl, which the AFC just won over the NFC, 20 to 17. Two players in particular, the Kansas City Chiefs’ Travis Kelce and the Buffalo Bills’ Lorenzo Alexander, stood out from their peers, earning themselves the offensive and defensive MVP awards, respectively. But Kelce and Alexander didn’t just win trophies for their efforts; they’re also each taking home a Genesis G80 sedan.

It’s a pretty sweet incentive when you a Genesis G80 is on the line. Kelce and Alexander did just that with the Chiefs tight end winning the offensive MVP award after racking up 36 yards and a touchdown to lead the AFC over Alexander and the NFC. For his part, the Bills linebacker made a good show for himself too, finishing the the game with eight tackles to notch the defensive MVP award.

For their efforts, Kelce and Alexander both get a luxury sedan that’s being touted as a legitimate competitor to the BMW 5 Series and the Audi A6, two German stalwarts that have dominated the mid-size luxury sedan segment for years. The G80 is no slouch of a luxury sedan itself. It features a design that’s at home in this segment as any of its German rivals. It also has a well-appointed interior and just as important, it comes with Hyundai’s award-winning 5.0-liter “Tau” V-8 engine that’s good for 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque.

Best of all, the G80 comes with 107.7 cubic feet of passenger volume, more than what the 5 Series, Cadillac CTS, Lexus GS, Infiniti Q70, and Mercedes E-Class all have to offer. For two larger-than-life athletes who need all the in the interior space they can get, the G80 is a solid car to address those needs.

Give credit where it’s due. Both Kelce and Alexander balled at the Pro Bowl and for their efforts, they’ve been rewarded with a luxury sedan that’s fighting its own battles for supremacy.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis G80 Sport

Considering the Genesis brand is a new entity, the Genesis G80 is technically a brand new car in the market. First on sale for the 2017 model year, the car has come off as a big hit, effectively fusing together power, luxury, and safety into one very sexy package. But, there were two problems with the G80. The first problem is that it was nowhere near as stylish or aggressive as the Genesis New York Concept, and the second problem is that there was no middle model – leaving consumers to choose between the 311-horsepower V-6 and the 420-horsepower V-8 models. For the 2018 model year, both of those problems have been addressed as Genesis has decided to refresh the G80 and introduce a new trim level called known as the 3.3T Sport. This refreshing has brought new, better-looking fascias to the front and rear, the availability of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive across the entire range, new safety features, and a new standard 18-inch wheel design. On top of that, the new 3.3t Sport offers up a cool 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque – just the right amount to position it between the G80 3.8 and the G80 5.0.

It seems pretty fast for such a new brand to offer up a model refresh after just a year on the market, but that just goes to show how serious the Genesis brand is about winning over consumers and keeping competing models like the BMW 5 Series and the Audi A6 at bay. The new Sport trim should prove to be a breath of fresh air for anyone who wants more than 300 ponies on tap without having to step up to the range-topping 5.0 model. So, will Genesis garner new customers with the introduction of this new trim level and the refresh of the entire range? Only time will tell, but let’s take a look at the new 3.3t Sport and see what it’s all about.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Considers Luxury Electric Vehicle For the Genesis Brand

It hasn’t even been a year since Hyundai broke out of the value car market and jumped into the luxury segment with its new Genesis brand. Since then, we’ve seen the new Genesis G90 and, more recently, the Genesis G80. With a mission to differentiate itself from Hyundai and Kia, not to mention its new German competition, the Genesis brand can’t rest for one minute. Each Genesis model has to be different from anything Hyundai and Kia has, and those models need to keep up with the luxury and comfort of the more dominate premium brands out there. With that said, part of Genesis’ strategy is to launch an all-electric vehicle.

The news comes from Senior Vice President, Manfred Fitzgerald, who also said, “We will definitely go as Genesis brand down the road of alternative propulsions, and it is very, very obvious that EV is definitely on the map. I think full electric cars will be the future in the auto industry.”

So far, the G90 and G80 are gasoline-powered models, but word has it the Genesis G80 will also get a diesel engine option as early as next year. Adding in an all-electric drivetrain would certainly diversify the Genesis brand’s methods of propulsion and would help to bring it in-line with other premium brands like Mercedes and BMW. So far, there’s no timeline as to when this new all-electric vehicle will come to be, but it’s in the works, so you can bet you’ll probably see it before the turn of the decade. The real question is – how big will it be? Will it be small like BMW’s i3 five-door hatch? And, to go with that question, what kind of range are we talking here?

PostHeaderIcon Genesis G80

Hyundai has finally announced all the details about the G80 and boy has it turned out to be winning combination of power, luxury, and safety. Available with a V-6 or V-8 powertrain and an eight-speed automatic transmission, the car is offered with 311 or 420 horsepower and a long list of safety features that tops anything offered as standard equipment on entry-level competitor models – it even beats out the Volvo S90 for standard safety equipment.

Unfortunately, the G80 isn’t anywhere near as stylish or aggressive as the Genesis New York concept that we saw back in March, but it’s still an appealing car with all the right technology and safety features to go with a sporty exterior design. To put it mildly, things have changed a lot since Hyundai first entered the U.S. market, and the Genesis premium brand just goes to show what is possible when you pay attention to your customer base and give them exactly what they want.

With that said, let’s take a good look at the new G80 and what it brings to the table. It’s definitely something you’ll want to consider next time you’re looking to grab yourself a premium sedan.

Update 08-01-2016: Pricing has been announced for the 2017 Genesis G80. Check out the prices section below for details.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis New York Concept

Once upon a time, the mere insinuation that the BMW 3 Series would sweat out a rival from South Korea would’ve been laughable. Unless someone was playing a joke of some sort, nobody would’ve believed it. Well, we live in a different world now and what was laughable then has become a reality now. BMW better be watching its back because Genesis is coming…and it’s coming on strong.

Hyundai’s recently launched luxury brand came to the 2016 New York International Auto Show and brought with it the New York Concept, a hybrid sports sedan that will likely serve as the basis for the Genesis G70, the brand’s eventual entry into a market long dominated by the likes of the 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class, and Audi A4.

The design game of the New York Concept is pretty strong, something that should ring music to the ears of the design team over at Genesis. There are some ambitious elements to it, as is the case with most concept vehicles. But, for the most part, Genesis succeeded in giving all of us a taste of what’s to come for Hyundai’s new premium brand.

It’s also still a little premature for the incumbents to sweat in their boots, but given the overwhelmingly positive reaction given to the New York Concept, I can imagine being one of the execs from those companies who saw the concept and thought to themselves that this new player that’s coming to town is well worth keeping tabs on.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis G90

Labeled as an automaker that produces cheap cars for many decades, Hyundai has improved its brand reputation tremendously in recent years — thanks to automobiles such as the Genesis and the Equus. In 2015, after some six years of testing the premium segment with the aforementioned sedans, the Korean company has finally decided to enter the luxury segment with a dedicated brand.

The said brand will go by the name Genesis and will include both the Genesis and the Equus nameplates, albeit under a new alphanumeric naming structure that will include the letter “G.” The new division will be aimed toward similar products from Toyota’s Lexus and Nissan’s Infiniti arms. The first automobile to be launched under the new brand will be named the Genesis G90 in North America and the Genesis EQ900 in South Korea.

Described as the brand’s new flagship model, the G90 just broke cover in South Korea, only a month after Hyundai announced the founding of the Genesis division.

“Genesis’ new large luxury sedan G90 will deliver a concept of ‘New Luxury’ to our customers. The G90 sits at the pinnacle of the Genesis brand and demonstrates how we apply our human-centered values to give our customers true satisfaction in every aspect of the vehicle ownership experience,” said Woong-Chul Yang, Head of Hyundai Motor R&D Center.

Although Hyundai had nothing to say about the U.S.-spec G90 model, the Korean EQ900 provides plenty of hints as to what we may get on this side of the Pacific. Let’s have a closer look at it in the review below.

Updated 12/10/2015: After dropping the official details and images, Genesis also revealed a first video for its latest G90. Check it out to see how the G90 was completed with innovative design and perfect proportion.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis Plans Product Invasion By 2020

Hyundai’s upcoming Genesis luxury brand is slowly taking shape. Only weeks after it was revealed that Hyundai would spin-off the Genesis into a separate premium brand, new information has revealed that the Genesis brand could include more models other than the previously mentioned G70, G80, and G90.

Filings made by Hyundai with the Korean Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) back in July 2015 shed some light on some possible new models to come out of the Genesis brand. Some of the names include G60, GC60, GT60, GV60, GC64, GT64, and G65. There have been no indications on what those models could be, but the G60 could turn into the company’s version of the BMW 3 Series and the GC60, GT60, and GV60 names could be variants under the G60 model. At this point, reports have indicated that the current Genesis will be rebadged as the G80 once the Genesis brand goes live. The Hyundai Equus will also move to the Genesis brand under the name G90. Then there’s the G70, which is still a mystery model at this point, but could end up being a rival model to the BMW 5 Series.

If these patent filings bear fruit in the future, the Genesis brand could turn into a full-scale premium outfit sooner than we thought. There’s already talk that the G90 will live up to its flagship status and be the first model of the new brand to make its debut. There’s no timetable on when that’s going to be, but don’t be surprised if it welcomes 2016 with a bang by taking the stage at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in January.
