Now may be the time to get a 2016 Hyundai Genesis before the 2017 Genesis G80 hits dealerships this month because the G80 is going to cost $2,650 more than its predecessor.

Its 311 hp 3.8-liter V-6, capable of pushing out 293 lb-ft of torque is carried over from the 2016 model and rear wheel drive comes standard but, shoppers can get one in all-wheel-drive configuration for $2,500. The 5.0L V-8 model comes with rear-wheel-drive only and for $55,500 you'll be getting 420 ponies and 383 lb-ft of torque.

The extra cost may steer some people towards the older model if they can get their hands on one but, we have to remember that the G80 will come with new standard features. For the starting price of $42,350 ($950 destination charge) the base trim will come with Hyundai's safety suite which includes lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind spot warning, high beam assist, etc. If you were to separately add these features to the outgoing Genesis, the final price could go up to $47,100. Also, the standard 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

There are additional packages for anyone who wants more. The optional $4,750 Premium package comes with LED fog lights, Lexicon speaker system, parking sensors, ventilated front seats, and a power tilt-and-slide panoramic sunroof. For $4,200 more, you can get the Ultimate Package which comes with upgraded leather seats, full color head-up display, 9.2-inch touchscreen, 17 speaker Lexicon speaker system, power trunk lid, etc.

Not a bad deal if the bevy of standard features are taken into account, well worth the extra $2,650.

$2,650 is nothing compared to what you're getting for it. The list of features would probably cost more than $2,650 if you were to add them to the older model.

Hyundai has always delivered value with the Genesis line up and a small thing like this wont be anything to consider, it should even be news. It's great for Hyundai since they can now continue to ask for more without question, people know they value they bring to the table.

I mean.. I guess it's still news nonetheless just because of announcing the pricing. But I do see what you're saying. They're their own brand at this point so they're really quite open to do what they want

They can do what they want but at the same time it's what keeps them relevant, since they can only do what they want till the extent it fits into the market.
