The 2018 Genesis G80 Sport was recognized as a finalist in the 2017 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA®) by The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA). The organization praised the G80 Sport for its elegant powerful lines and athletic appearance.
The Genesis G80 Sport is audacious and pushes the modern luxury experience, breaking through convention. A focus on mindful innovation blends the needs of the driver with technological feasibility, while an emphasis on the brand’s Korean heritage creates a meaningful balance between luxury and respect for the individual driving the car. The elegant, powerful lines give the G80 Sport an athletic appearance, and the design concept is based on retaining the harmonic proportions of the G80 in combination with a more sporty side profile.
“Our brand is built on design, and the balance of beauty and functionality,” said Luc Donckerwolke, Head of Genesis Design. “The G80 Sport being named a finalist in the prestigious International Design Excellence Awards is validation of those efforts. Genesis design is inspired from pure expressions of inner beauty which embody the perfect harmony between engineering and design. It’s great to get support from others in the design community for something that we’ve put so much passion into.”
