Genesis recently showed off its smallest sedan yet, the G70. Slotting in under the full-size G90 and midsize G80, Genesis’ newest car is aimed squarely at the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The biggest news this year is a change of names. The 2016 Hyundai Genesis returns as the 2017 Genesis G80. Hyundai is following in the footsteps of Toyota, Honda and Nissan by creating their own luxury division, which they’ve named Genesis. The transmission adapts the output of the engine to the drive wheels. Transmissions usually have multiple gear ratios (“gears”) with the ability to switch between them as speed varies (6 gear ratios = “6 Speed”). The 80 positions the SUV alongside the mid-size G80 sedan in Genesis’ lineup. This means it will be a mid-size offering targeting the BMW X5. It will reach showrooms in 2019, likely as a 2020 model, and trailing it by about a year will be a smaller GV70 SUV targeting the BMW X3. .
