Brace of Turbo Powerplants Bound for First Genesis Crossover

Our speculation was at least half correct. The upcoming Genesis GV80 crossover will indeed boast an uplevel four-cylinder base engine, the premium marque revealed Tuesday night, but the most potent of the anticipated powerplants will see a boost in displacement.

Genesis filled in the blanks at an event in Miami, saying its first crossover model will make use of an engine bound for the Hyundai Sonata N-Line and an upgrade mill with more horsepower than before.

  • Corey Lewis No need for unique qualifications to care for this thing, it's just a Corolla with a different body on it.

  • Syke Had the exact same car, only difference is that the trim was the JDM bB rather than the American xB. Enjoyed the car immensely, originally bought it because it was excellent for transporting my then-invalid wife and her wheelchair around. Best thing about it? I also owned a Porsche 924S at the same time. I could go from the Porsche to the Scion and not feel disappointed by the difference in the way they drove.
  • Tassos I have never driven this loser, but I was driven for 4 hours in the smaller XA. I had to go from Ann Arbor to CInncinatti to buy my second E320 Bluetec, and a post-doc of mine offered to take me in his pitiful XA. Luck had it that the April 2017 day we drove down there was windy, and the tiny, very lightweight, sorry excuse of a vehicle frequently felt like the wind would take it and smash it . Those of you who have a clue, will easily imagine how different was my experience on the way back, driving the 4,000 lb E320 sleek sedan.
