2020 Genesis G80 Executive Sedan Shows More Of Its Sexy Body

We’re only a few weeks away from the world debut of the all-new 2020 Genesis G80 executive sedan that is scheduled for September in South Korea.

We’ve already seen G80 prototypes during testing, but the latest round of spy shots provides us with the clearest idea yet of the new exec sedan’s design.

Spotted undergoing dynamic testing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the 2020 G80 reveals more details, like the lower front grille that sports a similar mesh design to the main grille and the production exhausts which adopt a pentagonal shape.

The photos also provide the best look yet at the quad headlights and taillights with two horizontal units on each side inspired by the GV80 SUV concept. Overall, the 2020 G80 looks elegant and dynamic at the same time, which is something you want when your competitors are staples of this segment like the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Lexus GS and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Unfortunately, the interior continues to remain a closely guarded secret, although it’s likely to feature design cues from the GV80 Concept as well.

Under the hood, the 2020 G80 will no longer feature the 5.0-liter V8 which on the current G80 Sport delivers 420 HP (313 kW / 426 PS) and 383 lb-ft (519 Nm) of torque. Instead, it will likely feature a 365 HP 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 as its range-topping option.

An entry-level 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit and a hybrid version cannot be ruled out, given the current focus on cutting emissions and fuel consumption, though nothing is official just yet. Following the launch in its homeland, the 2020 G80 should arrive in U.S. dealerships in late 2019 or early 2020.

    Elegant and dinamic? A square, dinamic?
    This car is shaping up as the ugliest product since the aztec.

      -Lincolns are nowhere sexy kid

      • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

        Boy, a discounted Hyundai cannot compare to even the Lincoln MKC.

        • Arct1c

          First of all it’s not a discounted Hyundai…? If anything it’s a luxurious Hyundai.
          Second of all the Lincoln MKC is a Ford. So you have no room to talk.

          • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

            A Genesis vehicle is not even an established player like Lincoln. Ford poured over $12 billion dollars into Lincoln while Hyundai just rebadged those Hyundais as Genesis models and made it a value brand. What a joke. Have you seen the resale value of a G80? It’s abysmal! Like I said that brand is a discounted Hyundai brand.

          • Aura

            Genesis sedans use a dedicated rear-wheel drive platform. The upcoming G80 will have a new version. The current Lincoln Continental is front-wheel drive and has unbalanced proportions.

          • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

            Up to certain configuration the Continental is front-wheel drive. You deliberately failed to mention that. You are incoherent about unbalanced proportion pertaining to the Continental, which could be the tires, suspension or anything. Please elaborate more so I can put you to shame alongside with that discounted Hyundai.

          • Aura

            I didn’t fail mentioning all-wheel drive as that’s irrelevant. The vehicle is front-wheel drive by default which impacts proportions. There are other factors, but that has a large impact. Genesis have the proper luxury platform: rear-wheel drive. That in combination with a longitudinal engine gives classic, balanced and luxurious proportions. Put me to shame daddy… oh wait, you can’t.

          • Aura

            An example of the unbalanced proportions: the lack of a long hood, lack of long axle to dash ratio (where the front fender to door line) lack of short overhang. The top of the bonnet is further forward, whereas it’s pushed towards the occupants in the Genesis. All these proportions are present on the Genesis models.

          • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

            It’s has a different layout proportions. Not everyone likes a boat on wheels and driven by the sales of Continental, everyone doesn’t like discontinued luxury Hyundais

          • Ian Buell

            Not certain how brand longevity can equal quality. Toyota, and as an extension Lexus started out as “value” brands early in their life cycle. Look where they are now! The president of the Hyundai motor group, the parent company to Genesis, is quoted as saying they are copying Toyota and Honda on how they do things. Resale value is low because they are still fairly new players, and because customer taste has shifted to crossovers, full size SUVs, and trucks.
            They have to build brand loyalty. That will take time.

          • bd0007

            Hmmm – which automaker invested in a RWD platform(s) for its lux make and which one relied on “tarting up” its FWD mainstream models – trying to pass them off as “quiet” luxury (which the same tack Honda took w/ Acura – in “smart” luxury – which is code for “not real luxury”)?

            Lincoln has the Aviator – which is a nice start, but that’s only 1 model.

          • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

            Hmm … Hyundai mentioned to spend a budget $500 million dollars developing a Genesis now G80 that shares parts w/a 20k Kia Optima. More realistically, Lincolns older platforms are versatile to front or all-wheel drive. Get yours facts in-line first. Ford Motor Company dumped over 12 billiion dollars into Lincoln and it has been a success. Much better than a discounted Hyundai that is so terrible it had to find selective dealers to sell Genesis because they don’t sell with their abysmal resale value.

          • bd0007

            Uhh, Hyundai has spent MORE than Ford has w/ Lincoln on Genesis.

            This is the 3rd gen RWD platform, new powertrains, etc.

          • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

            You: Previous to 2014, Ford only spent $500 million in “reviving Lincoln (basically doing “tart-up” jobs – so that’s wjy it cost so little to “redo” the lineup).

            Under Alan Mulally leadership during the second great recession of the automotive world, the CEO played it safe to only spend $500 million on Lincolns and its enhancements. Reviving Lincoln before 2013 — not 2014 — was Ford Motor Company initiative goal was to spend up to $500 million on Lincolns primarily redesigns and not reviving the entire brand. Your fallacies are mere ignorance.

            Upon Mr. Mullaly retirement, then CEO Mark Fields and then Lincoln’s president Jim Farley induce principal owner William (Bill) Ford a multiyear, multi-billion-dollar overhaul of Lincoln that includes a significant investment in a new premium vehicle platform that will underpin several future Lincoln vehicles.

            You: Since 2014, the plan was to spend $5 billion on Lincoln, including the D6 platform (which is shared w/ Ford products).

            Lies. The auto-media simply reported:” Ford could spend $5 billion or more over the next five years to revive Lincoln, revamp its product portfolio and reposition it as a true competitor.”

            Since 2013, the Ford Motor Company has spent over $2 billion dollars on a gamble for Lincoln in a global competitive world and recently, the brand just spent $2.5 billion dollars just on Lincoln product development, facilities and tooling. Since 2013. The Ford Motor Company has spent $5 billion dollars on Lincoln and this year, $2.5 more billion dollars.

            You: “Uhh, Hyundai has spent MORE than Ford has w/ Lincoln on Genesis.”

            Fabricated lame lies. Hyundai only spent $500 million on developing the 2015 Hyundai Genesis and its rear-drive platform. With the first-gen Hyundai Genesis, value branded Hyundai only spent again $500 million dollars and $260 million dollars on that TAU-V8 . And it was reported that Hyundai would only spend a measly $2.5 billion more dollars for a 13-year-plan! Bwahahaha.

            There’s not probably in spending $4 billion dollars on a discounted, rebadged Hyundai when I have the facts.

        • bd0007

          The Kia Telluride is selling ABOVE MSRP, esp. the top SXP trim.

          Don’t think could ever say that about the MKC or the MKX.

        • A 🤴🏻 THAT WILL RULE OVER YOU

          You’re comparing to a non luxury car that offers more than a luxury car with high prices. LMFAO your IQ must be extremely low

  • I think this is shaping up to be a looker.

  • donald seymour

    It’s beautiful and unique. And it’s apparent that only true connoisseurs of taste will appreciate the unique beauty that this car provides.

    • LJ

      Is this sarcasm?

      • donald seymour

        I find your comment hilarious.

        • LJ

          What looks unique about it? It looks derivative.

          • david santiago

            bro its not even out yet

          • donald seymour

            If by derivative you mean taking the classic styling cues of olds and giving them a modern neo classic interpretation, than yes. But derivative of Mercedes of BMW than you got life mess up.

          • LJ

            By derivative, I mean derivative.

            And I never said BMW or Mercedes.

      Yes. Very.

  • Bananarama

    Are people looking at different cars here??
    I don’t know on what planet this would be considered ugly, let alone “ugliest product since the Aztec” lmao

    I see a very elegant if not generic sedan with some interesting detailing. The concept and the new renderings are promising. I’m truly trying to grasp what is ugly here.

    • Maher

      You must be new here, it’s a trend to hate on Korean cars on this website.

      • Bananarama

        I know Honda/Acura get nagged on relentlessly regardless of what they put out.

        But I figured the Korean hate had passed by now.

      • Honda NSX-R

        If anything, I think it’s a trend to love Korean cars on this website. The same people calling it ugly right now will say it looks so beautiful once the camo comes off. It’s just the camo that’s throwing people off

    • pissedoffjuicebox

      Alot of really stupid people here.

    • Jason Panamera

      It is ugly for people because it doesn’t have european like design.

      • Bananarama

        What does that mean though?? I would say it looks more European than any other Asian brand.
        I think it’s because it’s not a European

        • Jason Panamera

          Because it doesn’t look boring like some german cars. : )

      • donald seymour

        You preaching!

  • Jason Panamera

    It looks nice. Spy shots of interior look promising too ( with K900 steering wheel).

  • Error the G80 sport does NOT have the 5.0 engine.

  • LJ

    I can’t be the only one that thinks these new Genesis cars look dated and ugly.

    • pissedoffjuicebox

      What would make them look “up-to-date”?

      • LJ

        I couldn’t tell you. It’s just the overall vibe they give off, in my opinion.

        • pissedoffjuicebox

          Hmm, maybe the fine details might change that opinion. I enjoy the proportions of it, no massive overhangs, everything looks taut and clean in my opinion, based on general shapes.

    • yonceous

      its not even out yet

  • pissedoffjuicebox

    Looks great, can’t wait to get in one to drive. The proportions are sublime, a long hood, raked greenhouse, big wheels, and the headlights and tail lights are shaping up to be very interesting. Can’t wait to try out the 3.5TT that will replace the 5.0 and 3.3TT.

  • Dan Facciolo

    It’s the “poor man’s” Aston Martin Lagonda

  • Mike anonymous

    Without A Doubt, The Genesis G80 & Upcoming GV80 are looking to be some of the most Classic, Beautiful, & Well Designed Luxury Vehicles (Within Their Respective Classes) We’ve Received this decade.

    Since the launch of Genesis we’ve seen the company prove that they are serious about luxury; learning from their mistakes and making improvements on the areas they believe need work. Genesis began previewing their line of ‘next generation designs’ with the GV80 & Essentia Concepts a number of years ago, although we have yet to see any vehicle (beyond a simple facelift) to truly embody Genesis’ vision for the future of their brand.

    Over the course of the last year we have seen the G80 and GV80 going around and I have personally noticed that the vehicles actually are improving as time goes on.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/92915afa5925ab168f5435754a9ece5a998da1840e7aa5cd8b8dfea691ebab78.png

    Although We See Camo, We Have Yet To See This Vehicles’ Final Form….
    For Example; Did you notice a number of changes such as the ‘un-fitting Hyundai Mirrors previously on the vehicle, have not been replaced with Genesis’ next generation mirror design (on both the recent G80 & GV80 Prototypes)? To know and understand that they are paying attention to details as such that many other automakers would rather forsake design to save a $.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6165daadd0c6e5c4d381d07c8b38dbc9013017898ff3e34f1bc8278955143aec.png

    It is quite obvious Hyundai understands that they need to follow up on their concept vehicles with vehicles that holds up in design but also with something that is truly special, as these vehicles represent for Genesis more than just ‘their next luxury vehicle’ but the future of what WE can expect from the brand.

    For Example; Subaru, Generally will release a concept vehicle, but the production variant usually is very watered down from the conceptual vehicle originally promised. Generally when they release a concept, most people do not bat so much as an eye, as their ability to realize their vision has gained a non-positive reputation, with people not really paying much interest in a company that does more ‘talking‘ then ‘walking (no offense meant to Subaru). But then you see automakers such as Land Rover who generally will stay true to the conceptual vehicles they release to a ‘near carbon copy degree’. When LandRover releases a concept, we are excited for what the future may bring, because we (and they as a company) understand that importance to a degree. For Us with Genesis, We are awaiting to see,.. will they talk,.. or will they walk???

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/30c7b29ec86491a6628416f7be1695dd28f4be1d463c50721a8cdae128c634c4.png

    If you understand what I mean,.. then,.. well you understand what I mean. These vehicles are extremely important not just for the brand, but for what the public perception of the brand will be going forwards, how much can we trust them to live up to their promises?

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3337ad3554ea2aafdc9ff41a586f3f7167979a57909503ac7730d4914a121fb9.png

    I do not want to continue on too long, but it is clear to see that Genesis seems to be putting their best foot forward. When creating a product of any class or kind, when you truly do your best, your best will show through, and people will see that. I will reserve judgment until the vehicle is fully revealed, but from what I’ve been able to gather and see here,… these are looking to be some of the best luxury vehicles (within their respective classes) possibly this decade. From an automaker, their best effort is all we can truly ask for.

  • BlackPegasus

    It looks massive. Which is okay for a luxury tourer.

  • dumblikeyou2

    Another pale rendition of a German flagship sedan that already exists.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Which is…

      • dumblikeyou2

        Which are…

        • Tumbi Mtika

          I’m still waiting?

    • Ian Buell

      Designed by……….. a German..

      • dumblikeyou2

        Exactly. Thanks for understanding.

        • Ian Buell

          The thing is, I like German designs. Just my personal preference.

          • pissedoffjuicebox

            Should be much more reliable than a German vehicle though, and less overpriced.

          • Ian Buell

            That’s precisely why I’m excited about the Genesis brand! Tuned and designed by Europeans who worked with the brands I like (BMW, VW group specifically) coupled with the drive for reliability that the Koreans are attempting to replicate from the Japanese.

    • bd0007

      You mean kinda like the 7 Series and A8 being pale renditions of the S Class?

      • dumblikeyou2

        Um, yup. You’re just making my point for me.

        • pissedoffjuicebox

          Should be more reliable and less overpriced than any of the above listed.

        • bd0007

          Yeah, proving that it’s a stupid one…

          Guess the Germans shouldn’t have gotten into the crossover game since they weren’t the first.

      • pissedoffjuicebox

        bd0007, have you heard when they are rumored to unveil the new G80? I have vastly conflicting reports.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    Pretty excited to see this in person.

    Genesis has been killing it lately, but the GV80 and GV70 can’t get here soon enough. People want SUVs now, and unfortunately not sedans, and that’s what they need to grow the brand.

    • A 🤴🏻 THAT WILL RULE OVER YOU

      aWWWW it looks like you hadn’t complain a single thing about cars for a while now. I guess someone irl gave you the attention that you needed. LMFAO

      • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

        I see you’re still upvoting yourself elsewhere.

        Still pathetic. Still following me around like a puppy dog. It’s cute, you must love me…

        • yonceous

          omg this is literally what Stan twitter is like I-

        • A 🤴🏻 THAT WILL RULE OVER YOU

          Nah, i think you wanted to be with me, but i guess im not into you like that. LOL

    • J. P.

      GV90 as well

    • Ian Buell

      If they take the Telluride, make it more upscale, give it a bigger engine, they can sell a ton of them. Roll that money into an M, AMG competitor… I’d love to see that.

      • bd0007

        But that’s not what Genesis wants to do.

        RWD and longitudinal layout is the way to go for the higher-end of the luxury market.

        • Ian Buell

          Hopefully AWD for their SUVs.

          • bd0007

            Well, of course.

      • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

        Genesis has stated that they wouldn’t be sharing any platforms with H/K vehicles. They’re going for RWD based platforms with available AWD.

  • ChicagoBlah

    Love that they still have the paper plate thing on the grill hiding the sensors, ruins the look, just expose it or hide it in an emblem, it just looks tacky this way.

  • Mike anonymous

    Haha No. But occasionally I will make a post as such if I have something to say.

  • Robert

    I am very excited to see the reveal of this car and the new SUV. Mainly because as a brand it will be ushering in Genesis very own (luxury) design language from concept.

  • Felipe Politano

    It is said to debut Genesis’ new engine family, with a new entry-level 2.5-liter turbo-four making around 300hp and an upgraded 3.5-liter turbo V6 good for almost 400hp

    Wish those engines would be exclusive to Genesis, but the 2.5-liter has already debuted in detuned state in the domestic Kia Cadenza and is said to show up under the hood of the upcoming Sonata N

    • Bige Lee

      Isn’t the Cadenza NA V6 only?

    • bd0007

      Can’t really expect the turbo-4 to be exclusive to Genesis.

      But for RWD application, the 2.5T puts out more power.

      • pissedoffjuicebox

        I saw a video on youtube where there is a headgasket layout in an inline-6 form for Hyundai/Kia/Genesis. Hope this turns out to be true.

  • Bige Lee

    Looks expensive.

    • bd0007

      Same basic grille and headlght/taillight design/shape (as well as for the crossovers).

      Diff, btwn the G80 and G90 is that the G80’s pentagonal-grille isn’t as massive/deep as the G90’s.

      The G70 will also get the same basic design when it gets refreshed.

  • MorrisGray

    I hope the naturally aspirated 3.8L v-6 is still available in this model. We have a 2012 with this motor and it has been great. I personally don’t care for the turbo assisted motors.

    • Salih Ahzem

      Let me ask you, have you been experiencing any difference in performance or refinement with 91/93 octane premium fuel? We had a ’15 Genesis as a company car with the 3.8 and it was kinda not smooth espeically between 3k-4k rpm on regular gas.

      • MorrisGray

        I have never used premium gas in my Genesis and it has performed exceptionally well the since we bought it new. We average approx. 23 mpg city and about 28-31 mpg highway depending on my speed driven.

    • bd0007

      If they keep a NA engine in the lineup for the US, it will be the new 3.5 V6 (but may only get the twin-turbo variant).

  • Tabs Luther

    Looks like a Bentley competitor when I squint. I am excited for these new genesis cars. Hyundai/Kia couldn’t be on more of a roll right now.

    The design hides the required high belt-line really well (Lexus LS 500 does this really well too).

    • Ian Buell

      I agree. A little Bentley in the front, a little Mercedes CLS in the back…

    • bd0007

      That would be the face-lifted G90 – which got the upper-lux treatment of a massive grille (a la Rolls and Bentley).

  • Kash

    I see some first gen A7 and last gen CLS in this design, but who knows what it’ll look like once the camo comes off.

    • Ian Buell

      I was going to say, a bit Bentley in the front, CLS in the back…

    • bd0007

      Has basically the same roofline/greenhouse as the current G80.

  • Steve Cohn

    The G80 looks really good, but my concern is the mechanical attributes of the car. Is it lighter than the last version? The last one was somewhat on the heavy side. Any suspension improvements? Braking or steering improvements?

    • Bige Lee

      It was a big car

    • kan hu

      The g80 has a third generation platform. Naturally, it will be lighter.

    • bd0007

      New stronger/lighter platform.

      New powerplants (2.5T and 3.5TT V6).

      Should also be a new transmission (the delayed 10 spd auto).

      As for the suspension, etc. – this time around, Biermann and his team has been working on developing the components/tuning from the ground up, so should be pretty good in the handling dept. for its size (larger than most other midsize lux sedans).

  • Jawohl

    Genesis G80. Hello massive depreciation

    • Ian Buell

      I hope so. I want them to sell a ton of them. I’ll pick one up for cheap in a few years a la depreciation…

      • Jawohl

        They are a used car buyers dream

    • bd0007

      Not as much as the Germans and not as much as the Acura RLX.

      And this model should be seeing lower depreciation than the current G80.

      • Jawohl

        Should be.

        • pissedoffjuicebox

          G80 has less depreciation than any German car in it’s class that you can name. German engineering indeed.

          • Jawohl

            err, you might want to check that!

          • pissedoffjuicebox

            I did, don’t worry. Out of warranty BMW 5-series are quite cheap on the used car lots.

          • Jawohl

            G80 has previously been shown to be the highest depreciating large car losing 38% in year 1. Motorbiscuit have the report.

          • pissedoffjuicebox

            Per Edmunds TCO calculator.

            2019 Genesis G80 3.8L Base – MSRP $42,050, Dep. 1st year: $13k or 31%
            2019 BMW 530i Base – MSRP $53,400, Dep. 1st year: $16k or 30%

            I stand corrected, the Genesis loses 1% more over the year than a 5-series, and when you look at actual cash difference, you save $3k with the Genesis. Either way, not really “massive” as you said unless you admit the 5-series is nearly equally massive. Your argument suffers far more here than mine, in fact it’s completely demolished. Thanks for playing.

            Clearly you didn’t bother reading the Motorbiscuit report. My point wasn’t an emotional argument like yours, it was simply based on facts. Here’s a little quote from the report that you can cry over.
            ”Hyundai has officially gone all-in by spinning-off the Genesis into its own luxury brand, but it wasn’t an easy road for the big flagship. Despite its attempt to run with titans like the Mercedes E-Class, BMW 5 Series, and Audi A6, blue bloods haven’t quite taken to Genesis. As a result, a new model that would’ve set you back $52,000 in 2014 was worth 38.2% ($16,600) less a year later. If you want luxury car but couldn’t care less about the badge on the grille, Genesis is the used car for you. Checkmate👏🏿

            Sorry, not an emotional argument, but nice try. I provided facts above, Edmunds TCO which is very accurate, coming in with just $500 difference from the sale price of my Hondas. I don’t trust your source, and both KBB and an average price of vehicles on sale support my argument. Checkmate indeed, only towards you.

            I would believe you, except I provided facts above in the form of Edmunds TCO which is very accurate, coming in with just $500 difference from the sale price of my Hondas. I don’t trust your source which I rank at the same level as Jalopnik, and both KBB and an average price of vehicles on sale nationally are consistent with the Edmunds TCO and thus support my argument. Checkmate indeed, only towards you.

    Saw this car about a year ago while visiting the Namyang R&D center. Liked the proportions a lot. People who have seen them in flesh, interestingly, points to GV70 – competitor to Lexus NX and Acura RDX – as best looking of the whole new bunch, the new G80, GV80 and GV70. Hyundai insiders are cautious as to not say much about the new powertrain…the 2.5L Theta 3 seems to need a bit more time to refine. GV80 in diesel engine guise is said to come earliest at 4Q19, with US sales starting in 1H20. Interior wise, a new type of dial shaped transmission levers will be used with quite a large screen in terms of diagonal. In any case, GV70 will be the bread winner.

      how were the interiors in term of design and quality. will it be more on par with the Japanese or with the germans?

      • bd0007

        There have been spy shots of the interiors of both the G80 and GV80 (where can see the seats and inner door panels; dash, however has remained cloaked).

        From what can be seen – more on par w/ the Germans.

        • pissedoffjuicebox

          Have you seen the new GV70 spy shots bd0007? The proportions look absolutely stunning.

    • bd0007

      The GV70 will more be a competitor to the X3 and GLC, being RWD and more performance oriented.

      The new engines will be the 2.5T and the 3.5TT V6.

      There have been hints of a delay, some they may have some issues to work out.

      There was showcase in Miami for top Genesis clientele and they got to see the exteriors of the new G80, GV80 and GV70 – and were impressed.

      There have also been some (seemingly accurate) mock-ups done (and some really poor ones).

      • Eddie Williams

        Love your Info!!!

      • Maykel

        Which mockups are pretty close?

  • SteersUright

    The lines of this car look rather clean and elegant. Might be a very good looking sedan.

  • Maykel

    Rear is last gen A7. Just wished it’s a fastback, it’d be instant buy for me. I’d love a Genesis sportwagon too.

    • GreenPat

      Given their great design work with the Stinger it would look great. A G80 Avant/5 door hatchback priced between the new G80 and G90 would be perfect. This along with the larger GV80 and smaller GV70. That makes for a full line up with the sharp new G70 leading the way. I expect Hyundai/Kia/Genesis to surpass GM for the 4 spot in global production by 2023. Hyundai was slow to transition but their dedication to build quality shows in the rankings. As these updated platforms and new EVs come on line their market share will rebound.

    Dan… you’re not an alpha. There, I said it…

  • pissedoffjuicebox

    And?

    Navigator Navy, you idiot, the Continental is a FWD-biased vehicle. It starts as a FWD and they slap on AWD, hence FWD-biased, the proportions are telling, short axle-to-dash ratio, fat grandpa rear-end, etc..
