    The design of Genesis' new G80 premium sedan is receiving rave reviews from U.S. auto media.

    Genesis, Hyundai's luxury brand, unveiled images of the G80 last week and plans to launch it here late this month. It will make its debut in North America at the New York International Auto Show in mid-April.

    U.S. auto magazine Car and Driver said, "The new model looks like it will make a significant jump upmarket, as evidenced by its bold exterior styling that incorporates the Genesis brand's signature pentagonal grille and similar headlights and taillights as the GV80."

    Auto website Autoblog said, "The G80 was already a handsome four-door with responsive handling and noteworthy luxury touches. Design-wise, in joining the corporate aesthetic... the all-new G80 ups its game everywhere."

    According to another auto website, Motor1, the car's design is elegant "throughout exterior cues such as the headlights and character lines running along the car."

    Motor Trend magazine said the interior details, including a 14.5-inch infotainment screen, are "second to none."
