Hyundai's luxury branch, Genesis, has announced the Canadian prices for both the G90 and G80.

Including delivery and destination fees, the less powerful G80 will start at $54,000
and it'll come with a 5 years/100,000 km warranty along with regular maintenance. Another perk included in the price are free updates of the GPS navigation map, satellite radio and Home-to-Home concierge service up to 10 times.

According to Auto123, the latter is a service that will start on the 21st of November this year and will only be available in Canada. Potential buyers can ask Genesis for a road test and buy the actual vehicle from home or from work. Once purchased, owners can request to have their vehicles picked up for maintenance and dropped off at home or at work, all without stepping foot into a dealership.

Those interested can choose from two engine options; a 3.8L, 311 hp V6 GDI twin-turbo and a 420 hp 5.0L V8. There's also a variety of additional features to choose from including LED anti-fog headlights, heated seats, etc. All this can be customized from a home computer thanks to the new concierge service.

Then there's the 2017 G90 that starts at $84,000. The G90 will also come with two engine options; 365 hp 3.3L V6 GDI twin-turbo engine and a 420 hp 5.0L V8.

Compared to its competitors, the Genesis G80 is an extremely good value.

That's not a bad price at all which should do well in pulling people away from vehicles priced similar or a bit more that sit in segments slightly below the G80, just due purely to the whole value proposition. And in a world of ride sharing services, when it comes to Uber we might be seeing these show up as Uber Black cars.

For a starting price of $54k that's actually pretty darn sweet. For what you're getting, it does seem like this is of a great value. 5 year warranty with some free maintenance agreements and this is all well worth it

Free maintenance will only last so long from the way I see it, once Hyundai starts seeing sales volume pouring in and maintaining some sort of trend over a decent duration then with that goes the leverage they use to pull us in.

It's a small perk, if your already in need of a vehicle as soon as possible then by all means push to get it, if you have time on your hands then wait it out. No point rushing to get a new vehicle if you don't need one right away. Patience can pay off

Patience will get you a discount no problem. It's a hit or miss on how you want to go about it. First on the block, or save some money in the pocket.

That's what it comes down to.

Even location of dealer plays into it as well since some might have specific reasons for lowering a price more than another and others taking the exact opposite route.

In the end its whatever is better for your personal situation.
