ABR Staff Writer Published 03 August 2016

Genesis has announced the pricing for the new 2017 Genesis G80 mid-luxury sedan, which offers refined performance, human-focused technology and first-class quality.

Genesis represents a progressive step forward with a new approach to luxury, focused on providing world-class safety, unprecedented convenience and an exclusive customer experience.

Genesis brand US general manager Erwin Raphael said: "The launch of the Genesis brand is an exciting time and opportunity to pioneer change and rethink luxury within the automotive space.
