  • Genesis G80 projected to hold a higher residual value than any other premium full-size car
  • This marks the brand’s fifth Canadian award win for 2021

MARKHAM, Ontario, February 4, 2021 – Today, the Genesis G80 has been awarded the J.D. Power 2021 Canada ALG Residual Value Award for being projected to maintain the highest value among all premium full-size cars.


The J.D. Power Canada ALG Residual Value Awards are the automotive leasing industry standard when it comes to recognizing vehicles that are projected to hold the highest percentage of the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) after a four-year period for mainstream vehicles, and after a three-year period for premium vehicles.


“We pride ourselves on the outstanding quality of our vehicles. This award reinforces our commitment to providing the best possible products and ownership experience to our customers,” says Richard Trevisan, Brand Director of Genesis Motors Canada. “We are thrilled that G80 has been recognized as the leader in this category.”


Having launched only four years ago, Genesis has quickly established itself as a top automotive brand and continues to receive praise for its award-winning products and unique purchasing and ownership experience.


In 2020, Genesis placed first in the J.D. Power 2020 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS) among all premium automotive brands — for the fourth consecutive year. Most recently, the brand has won four 2021 awards, including Best Overall Car for G70, and has three vehicles nominated as category finalists for the AJAC Canadian Car of the Year awards.
