    That was a different era, more than 25 years ago. Also, back then, SUV's were basically a pickup truck, and not all that popular. There were no CUV's. Today, the majority of Lexus models sold are either an CUV or SUV.

    Maybe, but how does he know what the selling price is for a G80 Sport, if he hasn't seen one for sale yet?

    Mmm, no. G70 will be in the same class as BMW 3 series and Mercedes C-Class. G80 is in the same class as BMW 5 series and E-Class Benz

    FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 20, 2017 – Genesis today announced pricing details for the 2018 G80 Sport luxury midsize sedan starting at $41,750. ---------Perhaps command of the English language needs to be reviewed - copied & pasted from article

    It is a bit misleading but not terrible. By my reading, what they are saying is all G80s are "sport luxury sedans" which you can further enhance over base models with options such as a V8 and a separate sport package. It is like BMW's "M sport" package, BMW would argue their 3 and 5 series are sport sedans yet there is a separate package to increase the sport factor if desired.

    Yes, very poor English. Only a detailed reading of the price sheet, with standard equipment and option packages reveals what is really going on.

    Virtually everything about the Genesis Motors website is very poor IMO. On the basis of their crappy USA website since the Genesis brand was created, I would fire the Genesis Motors USA General Manager if I had any say.

    Toyota was basically subsidizing the Lexus dealerships for a while.

    Didn't we already cover this before?

    And if the G80 is to be compared to the likes of the 3 Series/C Class - then what is the upcoming G70 to be compared against?

    Neither do you.

    And sure, there will be some buyers who end up w/ the G80 b/c they can't afford a similarly equipped 5 Series, but there are also buyers who just rather not spend that type of coin on a midsize, luxury sedan.

    And there are also others who would rather get a NA V8 sedan than one powered by a boosted 6 cylinder, much less a turbo 4.

    (On the other foot, there are those badge-wh*re buyers who will opt for a modestly equipped turbo 4 as the cheapest price of entry.)

    As I had pointed out a # of times before, the LS400 was originally priced well below the S Class (more like a decently equipped mid-size offering from MB), but nonetheless, the LS400 was placed in the flagship segment (and even today, the LS460 is still priced a good bit below the S Class).

    15-20 years ago, the Sonata was priced closer to the Civc/Corolla than the Accord/Camry - that didn't mean that the Sonata competed against the compacts.

    The Infiniti Q50 starts $6k below that of the C Class - nevertheless, they are in the same segment.

    Who cares?

    Neither the Japanese nor the domestics offer the level of customization that the Europeans do.

    But several cars that you omitted...the Germans...still seem to be doing pretty well
    I'm well aware that the Gernans (well, MB and BMW) are still doing relatively well when it comes to their sedans.

    The reason why I didn't include them is pretty elementary - none of the others have been able to encroach on MB and BMW despite decades of trying, so hardly logical to expect new-born Genesis to do so.

    Note that I did include the Audi A6, as Audi, like the other contenders, has continued to lag behind MB and BMW when it comes to luxury sedan sales.

    But Mercedes has sold about the same amount of $100+K S class cars as Genesis has sold G80's to date
    They have sold about 4,000 a month of the E class and about 7,000 a month of the C class

    BMW has sold about 3000 a month of the 5 series and 6000 a month of the 3 series

    The BMW 3 series and Mercedes C class are in the same price range as the G80...so that means a large majority of luxury sedan buyers, in the same price range, are buying the Germans by a large margin
    See above.
