In just six years of existence and four years of production, Genesis has emerged as a formidable luxury manufacturer. Each of the Korean brand’s six models (including the GV60, G70, G80, GV80, and G90) delivers style, athleticism, and advanced technology to rival established German and Japanese nameplates.
